HeadScratcher No. 32: Young TV stars in love
The blogfather is sick as a dog, y’all! (And, no, it’s not the “Irish flu” — racists!) So let’s make this quick:
Tom Selleck dated Courteney Cox on Friends. Cox dated Michael J. Fox on Family Ties. Fox dated Connie Britton on Spin City. Britton dates Kiefer Sutherland on 24.
So the correct order is:
Michael J. Fox
(or vice versa, as many of you 24 nuts pointed out)
So, yes, Julianna Margulies, in this case, does not belong. (Though didn’t she have a wonderful bedside manner, as pictured, with George Clooney on ER?)
Many of you are big fans of the six-degrees-of-separation format, it seems (no doubt home alone watching Footloose, Beauty Shop, and Wild Things on an endless loop).

Like PopWatcher Alex Miraski: “Six degrees is my favorite,” says he. Stay tuned, Alex;you might see more of it. Be careful what you wish for.
“They’ve all slept with Kevin Bacon, exceptCourteney Cox,” snarked Debra Mattson. Tim Konieczny brought home the Bacon, ending his rather long-winded answer with: “…who romancedTom Selleck on Friends, who starred in In & Out with Matt Dillon,who starred in Wild Things with Kevin Bacon. Oops, wrong game.”
One gripe: Although 158 percent of you knew that these actors hadcostarred, and thus put them in the correct order, you didn’t specifythat they were, as PopWatcher Josh Vogel said Miss Piggy would put it:”kissy kissy…” (A cultural scholar, that Josh!) Be specific inyour answers or next time, I’ll start crackin’ skulls!
“You think you’re so smart, but I’ve seen you naked…”
