Mark-Paul Gosselaar Explains How the 'Saved By the Bell' Cast Stayed Grounded (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Dec 1st 2011 6:30PM
Mark-Paul Gosselaar told 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) the secret to keeping teen TV stars grounded: cancel their shows every season. Gosselaar, who became tremendously popular at the age of 12 as the star of 'Saved By The Bell,' explained that the cast of the now-beloved show stayed modest because they had no idea they were popular.

"We were just doing this little show that got canceled every single year we did the show. But it was like, 'Oh, they're bringing you back because they have nothing on the schedule.'" And without Twitter, paparazzi or the Internet, Gosselaar explained that "we didn't have big heads because we didn't think we were doing anything that people were watching."

TNT Renews 'Franklin & Bash' for Season 2

Franklin & BashIf there's one thing America loves more than lawyer shows, it's nostalgia.

That's why it's unsurprising that this summer's latest addition to the growing crop of courtroom series on TV, TNT's 'Franklin & Bash,' has done so well for the network that TNT has ordered a second season.

That means next year, we'll have ten more episodes of Zack Morris Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breckin Meyer's too-cool-for-rules lawyer duo and their oh-so-unconventional law practices.

TV 101: Curing the Summertime TV Blues

by Dr. Ryan Vaughan, PhD (no, seriously), posted May 25th 2011 4:00PM
WipeoutTelevision is a funny thing. When you've been watching it all your life, it not only takes on a habitual role, it can also become extremely personal. Everyone has "their shows" -- the shows they watch religiously, the shows for which DVR isn't an option, the shows they try to talk their significant others into liking, the shows that force them to ream out a blogger for merely suggesting that "maybe the show is slipping," ignoring the fact that the blogger really likes the show too, and if they could just meet face to face they would see that there's no need to call him that.

Taking that into account, it can be depressing, quite frankly, when the summer months arrive and all those shows we've been manipulating our schedules around are gone. But it doesn't necessarily have to be. The summer is an opportunity to leave that televisual comfort zone that we've spent so many years cultivating and seek new shows to add to our socially acceptable obsession. Here's a shortlist of shows premiering this summer that should be a cure for the "where's my show" blues.

Seven '90s TV Show Reunions That Need to Happen Right Now

by Kelly Woo, posted Jun 9th 2009 6:00PM


The Zack Attack is back! Alas, it was for one night only.

Last night, Mark-Paul Gosselaar surprised Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' by showing up dressed as Zack Morris from 'Saved By the Bell' -- complete with giant mobile phone. Fallon's been obsessed with putting together a 'Saved By the Bell' reunion, and Gosselaar (who now stars in TNT's 'Raising the Bar') gamely agreed to participate -- if Fallon can get everybody else on board.

It got us thinking about which of our favorite '90s sitcoms need to hold reunions, like, yesterday. 'The Today Show' already hosted a 'Cosby Show' reunion, but here are some more meet-back-ups we really, really want to see:

'80s TV hunks for the thirty-something teenybopper

by Debra McDuffee, posted Nov 20th 2008 11:23AM
Jack WagnerAll this month, AOL TV is publishing their list of TV's hottest hunks of all time. That's a lot of hunks, but probably they won't all be memorable to you -- or to me.

Because when were you swooning over TV hunks? When you were a teenager, of course. Unless you are really, really immature. But seriously, I am guessing that beyond the age of 16 or so, you probably didn't plaster any Teen Magazine pin-ups on your bedroom walls.

As a teenager of the '80s, I surely had my favorite TV hunks. Yep, they were plastered on my bedroom walls, too: imagine hunk wallpaper and you've got the idea. So who on TV mingled amongst the movie actors of the Brat Pack?
