Robin Roberts and Paley Center for Media: TV’s Most Dynamic Duos
Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts joined the Paley Center for Media to determine who were the most dynamic duos in television history.
Jack and Karen from Will & Grace
Will & Grace was the name of the show, but it was Jack and Karen that continually stole the spotlight.
“We had so much fun playing those parts, we had fun on camera and off camera just being dorks,” Megan Mullally, who played Karen, said.
Laverne & Shirley
Laverne & Shirley was another memorable pair.
“We wanted to be on our own, but not totally on our own because we had each other,” said Penny Marshall, who played Laverne.
Cliff and Norm from Cheers
For 11 seasons, barflies Cliff Clavin and Norm Peterson frequented Cheers.
“I’ll have dreams about Cheers,” said George Wendt, who played Norm. “I always wake myself up laughing.”
John Ratzenberger, who played Cliff, said their job was to sit at the bar and crack jokes.
“It was a treasure, a real treasure,” Ratzenberger said.
Most Dynamic Duo Revealed September 2 2012 at 9 p.m. on ABC
Out of the thirty duos Roberts and the Paley Center looked at, only one can be number one. They’re asking you to choose, and Sunday night the winner will be revealed.
Roberts will host TV’s Most Dynamic Duos on Sunday, September 2 2012 at 9 p.m. on ABC. She said she was surprised by the results. GMA’s Lara Spencer said she can’t live without Laverne & Shirley.
GMA’s Josh Elliott said his favorite duo was Archie and Edith from All in the Family because they taught him a lot. Roberts named Cliff and Clair Huxtable as her favorites for the same reason.
