As TV networks plunder the recycling bin for old shows to revive, "Full House" must have been the final scrap at the bottom of the barrel.
Or so it would seem to those gobsmacked by news that Netflix is resuscitating the 1987-95 ABC sitcom — which, even for fans, is tenderly remembered as ephemeral fluff — for 13 new episodes revisiting the Tanners of San Francisco and re-titled "Fuller House."
Starring Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon as the mismatched flat-mates, it is based on the 1968 film, which was based on the 1965 Broadway comedy, which inspired the long-running 1970 ABC sitcom (starring Jack Klugman and Tony Randall) as well as the 1982 ABC flop featuring an African-American odd couple (played by Demond Wilson and Ron Glass).
The network has ordered 13 episodes of what it is pointedly calling a "sequel," not a revival or, um, rip-off of the ABC original, with Craig T.
Authorities say a New York City man is charged with robbery as a hate crime after he allegedly targeted six women of Chinese descent.
A witness to the attempted robbery called 911 after seeing a man with his arm around the victim's neck.
Lawyers were making closing arguments Tuesday morning in the case of Michael McFarland, who is accused of killing his wife Jessica McFarland in June.
Both of the McFarlands grew up there and many people called to jury duty said they knew one or both of them, as well as many of the people on the witness list.
The North Dakota House has rejected an amendment to a resolution that would require state lawmakers to live in their districts.
Legislative leaders from both parties had been pushing the resolution that would amend the state constitution, should voters agree.
Current law only requires legislators to live in their districts 30 days prior to an election.
The resolution would have required the lawmaker to live in the district on the day he or she takes office.
