Broadway on TV, Part III - Fridays & Sundays

This is the last in the series of blogs about Broadway stars on TV this season. Today, I’ll discuss Fridays and Sundays – the networks don’t air much more than sports and repeats of the week’s hits on Saturdays, so I’ll skip that night. And besides, what better night to enjoy live theatre than Saturday!?

Of course, Law & Order and Ugly Betty alone keep most Broadway actors in paychecks what with their guest appearances! Tune in any week and you might see Cheyenne Jackson, Bernadette Peters, Kerry Butler or Carol Burnett!
