It's been news for a bit now, but I only recently came across the story that Kristen Johnson is set to star in a remake of one of the funniest shows ever to glow forth from a square--Absolutely Fabulous.
I remember in the late '90s when Roseanne was spearheading an American AbFab. It had promise, if only because of the name attached (never doubt the woman who takes a show about a middle-class Midwestern family with two obese parents and three wise-ass kids and makes it a smash). That idea, of course, never came to fruition. A fate that, in a world unmarred by injustice, should also visit Fox's latest attempt to break the NBC stranglehold on actually-amusing sitcoms.
