Veteran TV producer Jeff Franklin — creator of the beloved long-running Full House — has purchased the iconic San Francisco property where the Tanner family “lived,” located in the city’s Lower Pacific Heights neighborhood at 1709 Broderick St. The house went on the market in May with a price tag of $4.15 million and Franklin snapped it up in a deal that closed this fall, paying right around $4 million.
Any die-hard Full House fans hoping for a Michelle Tanner appearance on Fuller House are in for a big disappointment. In separate interviews, stars Jodie Sweetin and John Stamos have all but said it’s not going to happen. Season 2 will be chock full of guest stars, like the original boy band New Kids on the Block. All of the original members will play themselves for an episode in which Stephanie attempts to get them to perform at a birthday party for her sister D.J., played by Candace Cameron Bure.

Watching Fuller House, which starts streaming Friday on Netflix, I felt exactly the way I felt when I used to watch the show it’s based on with my young children in the late-80s/early 90s: mildly amused, a little bored, and glad that it provided some harmless good laughs for its intended audience. Full House in its original incarnation was the cornerstone of ABC’s “TGIF” schedule of child-friendly shows that included Family Matters and Perfect Strangers. The new Fuller House is overseen by the original’s creator, Jeff Franklin, and he is wise to have stuck to the original’s mood.
Almost all of the cast from Full House stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform a sketch with Jimmy playing Donald Trump, playing Michelle Tanner. This worked in Jimmy’s favor because he got play Michelle, but as his Donald Trump character.

Basketball season is almost here, and with that comes the prospect of NBA players guest starring on our favorite TV shows. Sure, nine times out of ten, these cameos turn out awkward and stilted — but that can still be funny, right? (Especially when the NBA player is a foot taller than all the other actors.)

The Unauthorized Full House Story is the kind of TV movie you’d make if you’d spent a week locked in a room watching all eight seasons of Full House. Brimming with intense sentimentality, cornball jokes, and a sense of scandal that wouldn’t have scandalized the preteen-era Olsen twins, Unauthorized Full House is a Lifetime movie that wants no viewer to walk away feeling the sitcom has been in any way traduced. Indeed, writer Ron McGee treats Full House as though it was a sacred icon whose pop-culture history must be maintained at all costs — in this case, the costs being believability and narrative momentum. Full House was, of course, a harmless little family sitcom that became a big hit for ABC from 1987 to 1995, a linchpin for the network’s “TGIF” lineup of anodyne comedies, like Family Matters and Step by Step.
We’ll give this to Lifetime: if the first, less-than-a-minute preview clip rom the network’s upcoming unauthorized 'Full House' movie is truly representative of just how cheesy the whole flick is, there is no place we’d rather be than parked in front of the tube on Aug. 22.
