Back to the Grind for old TV stars

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 31st 2007 3:01PM

night courtCindy Williams and Penny Marshall aren't the only "classic" TV stars slated to pop up on TV Land this coming season: both Loni Anderson (WKRP in Cincinnati) and Harry Anderson (Night Court) are the first to sign on for a new series called Back to the Grind, which is not a revamped version of the MTV dance show The Grind, but rather a reality series in which actors and actresses will actually perform the jobs their characters had on their respective shows.

Seeing Harry Anderson as a judge and Loni Anderson doing whatever it is she did on WKRP could be entertaining, but I also want to see Wayne Rogers remove shrapnel from a young South Korean boy, and I want to see Melissa Sue Anderson stricken with blindness in order to reprise her role as Mary Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie. If we're going to make a show like this, people, let's not mess around.

The series premieres on October 10.

This post had me laughing out loud! This series could help some of their careers. For example, it would be good to get Matt LeBlanc to do what he did on Friends . . . ACT!

I'm looking forward to seeing Bea Arthur as a substitute teacher. If I was in that class, I sure as heck wouldn't get her mad!
