Back to the Grind premieres this Wednesday
In March, I told you about a new TV Land series called Back to the Grind in which celebrities from classic TV shows actually attempt to do the jobs their characters performed on television. I told you it debuted on October 10, but clearly I was lying because it actually kicks off this Wednesday, July 18 at 10:30 p.m.
If you don't have TV Land, don't worry. You can actually watch full episodes on TV Land's site starting July 16. Right now you can just see a few clips, but I think they give a pretty good idea of what to expect. I especially enjoyed watching Erik Estrada continuously fail both the written examination and driving test for his motorcycle license. Also, Loni Anderson doesn't look that much different than she did when she was on WKRP in Cincinnati. It's almost as if she had some kind of surgery performed on herself to make her look younger than she really is.
Other celebrities to appear on the new series include Loni Anderson, Betty White, Harry Anderson, Sherman Hemsley, Marla Gibbs, Mark Curry, Bea Arthur, Ed Begley Jr., Jimmie "J.J." Walker and Betty White.
I'm curious: will Marla Gibbs job be keeping house for Sherman Hemsley?
