Which 'Full House' Star Is on 'The People's Couch?'
Bravo's new social series features a former child actor.
When you tune in to The People's Couch tonight, you might see a familiar face. One of the hilarious voices providing commentary on our new social series is Blake McIver Ewing, who played Michelle Tanner's friend Derek Boyd during the last season of everyone's favorite TGIF show, Full House.
Still not ringing a bell? How about that episode when Derek scandalously beat Michelle for the part of Yankee Doodle? Watch below:
And if that isn't enough '90s nostalgia for you, the former child actor was also in The Little Rascals, The Nanny and Home Improvement—not to mention his victory as a Junior Star Search champion.
These days, Blake is using his "Yankee Doodle Dandy" pipes as an R&B singer-songwriter. That is when he's not snarking on TV shows with his two BFFs Scott Nevins and Emerson Collins. The trio loves to give a hilarious running commentary on their favorite, and not so favorite, shows. As they put it, that makes the good ones better and the bad ones even more amazing—even if it sometimes takes them all night to get through one program.
Our new docu-series features plenty of other Americans weighing in with their best quips on the week's best TV shows. Read on to learn more about them and tune into The People's Couch tonight at 11:30pm ET/PT.
Kenya Ye'Vette Taylor and Amanda Morrison are sisters and roommates with a 15-year age difference between them—although that doesn't necessarily determine who wins their arguments. For these loud and opinionated siblings it's all about who has the best rebuttal. Unless one of them just happens to wear out faster than the other.
In the case of the Blanda Family, it's all about Grandpa Larry and his inappropriate chatter, which frequently embarrasses 13-year-old granddaughter Sophie. Much to Sophie's chagrin, parents Bob and Jill also seem comfortable providing some unfiltered TV chatter for all of America to see.
Persian sisters Cathy and Destiney Rezaei work together at a nightclub, and often watch TV together (especially when Cathy needs to escape from living with her mom). Cathy is a self-proclaimed loudmouth, but it's Destiney who gets endlessly frustrated that the characters can't hear her talking to them through the TV.
The Bradley-Redd Family are certainly used to chatting together: they host a weekly online radio show every Friday complete with call-in guests. You may recognize mom Kathleen as one of Bob Barker's infamous "Barker's Beauties." She and daughter Cheyenne are the firecrackers of the family, but husband Terrence and son Terrence II certainly have their own opinions.
Best friends Brandy Howard and Julie Goldman are both writers who tend to agree on what to watch—except when it comes to dragons. Brandy, it seems, can't stand anything with dragons (don't tell Daenerys Targaryen!). Regardless, they are both TV fanatics with Brandy watching 5 hours of TV a day. In fact, Julie is apparently the proud owner of a TARDIS as she claims to watching "a million" hours of TV every day.
The Egber Family of four bundle up in bed together every night to watch TV. Yes, really! Unfortunately for patriarch and sports fan Andrew, his wife Julie and sons Sam and Jack could care less about the Dodgers...but all three of them are way into reality TV, which makes for some interesting back and forth between the fam.
And then, of course, there is Tina Sugandh and Tarz Ludwigsen who made their mark documenting their first year of marriage on Newlyweds: The First Year. The new parents may not get a lot of TV time these days but when they do, they make it count with their comments and opinions.
Catch The People's Couch tonight on Bravo at 11:30 PM.
