Trivia

"The Good News" was the *very last* series of any kind produced by MTM Enterprises; the company was absorbed into 20th Century Fox Television and ceased to exist after this series left the air (MTM's parent company, International Family Entertainment, had just been purchased by 21st Century Fox, Inc.); the few surviving MTM series (e.g. "The Pretender") were then produced under the 20th Century Fox Television banner. Fox now owns all the MTM series and telefilms, including "The Good News." See more »

The New Amen
12 June 2008 | by Lisaluv1See all my reviews

Cant believe this show only lasted a few episodes.

One thing I would have expected to have been mentioned on this page is that it is the new version of the 80's TV show 'Amen'. They even use the same set design of the church. But wondering if they assumed we (the viewers) wouldn't get that. They would have made better or lasted longer if they just went with the angle of it being same church and having Roz recreate her role from Amen and not play a totally different character. Also if they could have gotten Sherman to made a guess appearance Im sure it would have lasted longer.

Personally loved the scene with the dance and they brought in the gangs. Was totally hilarious with the final dance sequence.
