TVLine Items: Full House Reunion Video, DirecTV Premiere Dates & More

Full House Reunion

The cast of Full House seems to reunite on a bi-weekly basis at this point, yet we’re never any less excited when the gang decides to get back together.

The Tanners’ latest gathering came Saturday at a birthday party for show creator Jeff Franklin, with many of the original stars — John Stamos, Candace Cameron-Bure, Bob Saget, Lori Loughlin, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber — in attendance.

There was even a sing-along of the Full House theme song, which Barber was kind enough to Instagram:

    The positive: a Full House reunion. The negative: the Academy of Country Music Awards is running three and a half hours long.

  2. Question #1: Didn’t we just have about 3 country music awards shows at the end of the year?

    Question #2: What is the status of Kingdom? Just curious….the DirecTV shows aren’t on the renewal scorecard.

    still waiting for the reunion movie for Full House. Or even better, a limited series season. I’m currently rewatching my way through FH and it’s been a delightful nostalgic trip.
