New ‘Ghostbusters’ Troll Their Haters With a ‘Folk Lady’ Version of the Classic Theme Song
The cast of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters are set to appear on The Graham Norton Show on June 23, but a couple of clips from their delightful episode have popped up online, including one in which Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy — at Feig’s urging — perform their “folk lady” version of the classic theme song. As an added bonus, their sharply-dressed director gets slimed, straight-up Nickelodeon style.

The Boss is not a good comedy. At times, it is impressively unfunny. In 99 patience testing minutes, I laughed out loud just once. (If you must know, it was when Melissa McCarthy described her vagina after a rejuvenation surgery as resembling a “soft silk purse.” That’s funny!)

Even before Netflix officially announced a four-part Gilmore Girls revival coming to the streaming service, it hadn’t seemed particularly likely Melissa McCarthy might find time to reprise her role as Sookie St. James. McCarthy even downplayed that she’d been asked at first, but now officially confirms that she won’t have time for a role.

It’s a tale as old as TV, one show giving rise to a mega-star among the ranks, and Gilmore Girls has had its share both before and after Melissa McCarthy. Sadly, it doesn’t appear as if the Ghostbusters star will reprise her role as Sookie St. James for Netflix’s long-heralded Gilmore revival, according to a chilly tweet from the star.

Still a broadcast rating juggernaut, CBS could make the argument more than most for extending or cutting short its most recognizable hits, and with TCA putting the Eye in the limelight, CBS has good news and bad. We may not have to worry about The Big Bang Theory returning after next season, while Mike & Molly’s closure is official, and both The Good Wife and Person of interest get dubious futures.

There’s still quite a while to go until the July 15, 2016 release date of Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters reboot, but the fires of fan anticipation must be continually stoked if they’re going to burn strong enough to last through the winter, and the wasteland of pop-cultural apathy that is the month of January...
