Six Degrees NTO Style

Craig Ferguson to

Joyce DeWitt

The Challenge: I made the connection from CRAIG FERGUSON to JOYCE DEWITT in three TV degrees. If Judi can do equal or better, she wins 10 points + 5 bonus points IF she can avoid the use of anyone who has patronized the Regal Beagal.

If YOU, the reader, can do better AND post it in the comments before Judi posts her answer to the bottom of this post, YOU get a prize. Seriously, something [less terrifc than Judi would send] will show up on your door step within one calendar year.

The Rules: No online research allowed. ESPECIALLY IMDB!! Come on, it’s a GAME, half the fun is PLAYING not CHEATING. Any and all research conducted at your local library is accepted and encouraged. Connections through television AND movies are accepted, relationships are not. ALSO: As we all know, Craig Ferguson hosts his own late night talk show on CBS, use of this program to form a degree is STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

Challenge ACCEPTED: Since I am unaware of Joyce DeWitt’s talents that do not involve my favorite sick-day sitcom of all time, I’m going to have to abandon the bonus points. But at least this will get me back on the board, thank you Baby Jesus in a TV-shaped manger.

That is legitimately the actual tag line for Problem Child. A former staple of the TBS, TNT and USA network weekend movie circuit. I cannot tell you how many times I watched that movie, sometimes more than once in a weekend. However, until today I never intentionally viewed it. Like, I never saw that it was coming up and made a note to watch it, nor did I ever attempt to rent it. It was always just on. Those are the days of yore. 

I was always aware of Seinfeld‘s Cosmo Kramer’s appearance in this film, but until today, when Comcast posted it in the “Free Movie” section On Demand, I had NO IDEA that Michael Fishman who starred as D.J. Connor in Roseanne also did. And guess what his role is? He was the perfect child that gets adopted as we see Junior (soon to be Junior Healy) mopping the floor in the orphanage. And now it makes me happy to imagine Jack Tripper and Dan & Roseanne discussing how they adopted their sons from the same children’s home. Oh, and how the Bowtie Killer turned out to be a racist.

God knows what Jimmy Carter was talking about on Larry King Live last night, because I couldn’t get past the fact that the former president now looks exactly like the late Don Knotts. I’m sure he was spewing some presidentialy advice for the new commander in chief, but all I heard was, “Jaaa-aacckk, Chhuuurriis -iiss-ssyy, Jaaaan-u-eettt!!!!!” Or Carter performing Mr. Furley’s former job of throwing Otis in the drunk tank every night. And actually, I’d be shocked to learn that Jimmy Carter didn’t have a guest spot on “Matlock.”

Please tell me that this means Jimmy Carter is starring with Dakota Fanning in an upcoming remake of “The Apple Dumpling Gang.”


I used to LOVE the Incredible Mr. Limpet when I was a kid.
