You have questions. I have a few answers.
Q: Where’s Anthony Mason on the CBS Morning Show? Has he been let go? What can we do to get it back?
Reply: A few weeks ago, CBS unveiled a “reimagined” weekdays program, calling it “CBS Mornings” and having Gayle King, Tony Dokoupil and new addition Nate Burleson as hosts. In this redesign, Anthony Mason was tasked with contributing artistic and cultural pieces to the program.
CBS says the new format aims to make viewers “more informed, more prepared and more uplifted at the start of their day,” in part by embracing aspects of “CBS Sunday Morning,” still anchored by Jane Pauley. (âCBS Saturday Morningâ continues with Jeff Glor, Dana Jacobson and Michelle Miller.) The network said that âimpactful journalism and rich storytelling will tie its morning franchisesâ¦ together throughout the week. The three morning shows will share a similar aspect and editorial breadth. “
Q: I’ve been watching reruns of “The Golden Girls” on Hallmark Channel for ages. The episode where Dorothy marries Lucas and says goodbye to the girls – what happens after that? The show begins again with the four women reunited. Did they stop filming?
Reply: Yes. The 1992 episode with Dorothy’s wedding is the finale of the “Golden GIrls” series. Bea Arthur, who played Dorothy, had decided to quit the show, which ended its long run on NBC. CBS then tried to continue with the other âgirlsâ (Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty) in a sequels series, âThe Golden Palace,â but it was not a success and ended after just one. season.
