After four seasons on the air, it was recently announced that FOX had cancelled ‘Til Death. The sitcom had been doing poorly in the ratings for some time but was kept alive via a deal that allowed Sony to accrue enough episodes for syndication. The cast of ‘Til Death has included Brad Garrett, Joely Fisher, Timm Sharp, Kate Micucci, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Kat Foster, and J. B. Smoove.
On the positive side, before the sitcom signs off on June 20th, sitcom fans will be treated to a Blossom reunion. Members of the cast of the 1990s NBC sitcom will be playing themselves on this Sunday’s episode — Mayim Bialik, Michael Stoyanov, and Jenna Von Oy. Unfortunately, Joey Lawrence and Ted Wass couldn’t make it.
In the episode called “Baby Steps,” Joy (Fisher) goes overboard planning for the baby shower of her daughter Ally (Micucci) and becomes obsessed with baby gifts. Mr. White (guest star Martin Mull) has difficulty giving Ally and Doug (Sharp) their shower gift.
Meanwhile, Doug, who’s long been convinced that he’s living inside a sitcom has been treated by a fictional version of Mayim Bialik. In an attempt to make a breakthrough, Dr. Bialik invites her Blossom castmates to participate in the therapy session.
Having the Blossom reunion on the FOX sitcom’s actually not a big stretch considering ‘Til Death executive producer Don Reo also created Blossom. This special episode of ‘Til Death airs on Sunday, May 9th, at 7pm on FOX.
If that’s not enough, on May 24th, Bialik will be stopping by CBS’ The Big Bang Theory. She’ll play a potential love interest for Sheldon (Jim Parsons).
What do you think? Is the Blossom reunion enough to get you to tune in to watch ‘Til Death or will you just wait to see Bialik on Big Bang?
