    I used to love The Game but it’s a train wreck now. What used to be a laugh out loud funny show has become a very bad soap opera! When Melanie and Derwin “Ding Dong” Davis left The Game, so did I!

    So You Think You Can Dance!

    Wow, I never realized Coby Bell is on two shows at the same time! I only know him from Burn Notice. Is he a series regular on both? Are there other actors who have done that?

    • Mick says:

      Coby was a series regular on The Game when it was on the CW when the CW cancelled there was a time difference of a year before BET started production on the show again. Coby found another job, Burn Notice so he recurs on the Game, i.e Luke Perry in the final season of 90210. Actor do it sometimes but it is infrequent because networks and studios do not usually like to play nice. Others: Alison Brie does the same thing and the wolf girl from Once Upon a Time is about to do it for the fall

    • Aprilcot says:

      Christopher Meloni did double duty on SVU and Oz, but I don’t know if he was a regular or recurring character on the latter (I’ve never seen Oz). JK Simmons did the same, but I think he was just considered recurring on L&O.

  4. TV Gord says:

    Amy Schumer and Anthony Jeselnik are hilarious on the Comedy Central Roasts, but both of their shows (hers ending tonight, his returning next Tuesday night) are low on actual laughs. With both, I stuck with their first seasons all the way, hoping they would improve, but both only made me long for the laughs of the roasts.
