I Hope “The Golden Girls” Isn’t Next

Every time I hear that one more TV sitcom is being re-booted, I think: Please not “The Golden Girls.” I used to think that that show was safe — 3 out of the 4 actresses are dead. But as the just-announced reboot of “Designing Women” (pictured) reminds us, it doesn’t matter if one of the anchor performers has passed — Dixie Carter has been dead for eight years. At the rate we’re going, not only “The Golden Girls” will be rebooted but so will “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” — with somebody else playing Mary.
