Emmys 2015: What the Fuller House cast is most excited about on TV right now
The Fuller House cast is having a great time working together on the Netflix Full House reboot, but when they’re not on set, they’re just like the rest of us — excited about what’s on TV.
Candance Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin (a.k.a. DJ and Stephanie Tanner) shared what shows they’re most excited about while attending EW’s Emmys party on Friday in Los Angeles.
“I’m hooked on Dancing with the Stars, because I was on it,” Bure said. “So that started last week, and I’m all over Dancing with the Stars. Scandal returns next week, and I’m a huge Scandal fan, so I’m just waiting for that to start.”

Game of Thrones and House of Cards — both up for awards at Sunday’s Emmys — are among Sweetin’s favorites.
“Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright — I want to be either one of them, honestly. I love them so much, and it’s such talented acting,” she said. “I think that right now in the television world, there’s such an opportunity with things like Netflix and streaming, on demand television, you can do things that you couldn’t do before on TV. They’re more like small films, and that really gives a richness and a quality to TV that wasn’t there before.”
With filming under way for Fuller House, Bure said it’s “awesome” getting to be part of the Tanner family again.
“We are having so much fun. I love working with [Sweetin] every day. It’s so great,” she gushed. “I don’t think we could have planned it better, asked for anything better. I think it’s exceeding all of our expectations — just the camaraderie on set and the show itself. The writing is really great and funny, and I’m excited for you all to see it. It’s crazy that we get to do this again together.”
The feeling is mutual, according to Sweetin.
“We’re having so much fun,” the actress said. “Actually, on my hiatus weeks and weekends, I’m like, ‘Oh, I miss everybody. I want to go to work.’ I have so much fun, not just with the cast, but with the crew and everyone. We’re really enjoying ourselves.”
