‘The Conners’ Get Political in Special Live Episode
The episode, which was performed live twice for different time zones, aired at the same time as the results were coming in from the New Hampshire primary. This allowed the show to incorporate live updates of the primary and also insert some not-so-subtle jabs at the current Democratic candidates during the half-hour-long sitcom.
The storyline followed Darlene's children, Mark and Harris, who are watching news reports on the primary. Mark has been assigned a school report on it, while Harris plays the cynical observer who considers the influence of money in politics a blockade to change. As results were pouring in, the kids joked that previews for The Bachelor were blocking the bottom half of the screen. Hilarious!
Some of the guests at the Oscars this past Sunday were reflecting on Kobe Bryant and his daughter GiGi's death. Kim Kardashian-West was on the red carpet and so was Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union.
Kobe and Gianna were laid to rest in a private catholic funeral on February 7 at Corona Del Mar, California with just family and very close friends. There will be a public memorial held for Kobe and Gianna on Monday, Feb. 24 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where the athlete played professional basketball with the Lakers for the entirety of his 20-year career.
