'Full House' guys reunite on 'Watch What Happens Live' -- with a very special surprise guest! VIDEO

It was a full house last night on Watch What Happens Live.

In addition to John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier — who’ve been making the press rounds together in anticipation of their Super Bowl commercial this weekend — DJ Tanner herself, Candace Cameron Bure, stopped by the clubhouse to help host Andy Cohen quiz the guys about what they remember regarding the details of their 1988-1995 sitcom. As evidenced by knowing what DJ’s full name is (Donna Jo), clearly John Stamos finds himself drawn into the near-constant reruns more than he lets on.

Watch the 'Full House' guys sing Jimmy Fallon to sleep -- VIDEO

First, the men of Full House reunited in an Oikos Super Bowl ad. Then Wednesday night, they gathered together once again to give us the reunion we really wanted: Bob Saget, John Stamos, and David Coulier reprised their Full House roles in a skit on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where the three helped quell Jimmy’s fears about leaving for The Tonight Show.

If you didn’t know, you might think it’s a clip straight from the hit ’90s show– except for the whole Jimmy-Fallon-replacing-Michelle-Tanner part. Uncle Joey spouts out some Popeye jokes, Uncle Jesse gets defensive about his hair, Danny gives some sage advice, and the three band together in a rendition of Elvis’ “Teddy Bear.” Jimmy goes to bed feeling better about leaving Late Night and reminisces about the good times he’s had as host, and we’re left wondering why the trio never appears in our bedrooms to sing away our nightmares.

'Full House' guys -- and... Rihanna -- unite on 'Good Morning America': VIDEO

John “The Milkman” Stamos, Dave “The Paperboy” Coulier, and Bob “The Evening TV” Saget aren’t just former Full House castmates — by all appearances, they’re also legitimately close pals who were truly thrilled to reunite for a 30-second yogurt commercial. Evidence: Yesterday, the trio had a bromantic night out on the town in New York City…

Guess who's reuniting with John Stamos for a Super Bowl commercial? -- VIDEO

I’ll give you a hint: Think dudes… and San Francisco… and something tailor-made for the 20-something demographic.

No, Dannon Oikos pitchman Stamos isn’t teaming up with the cast of HBO’s Looking for a new Super Bowl ad. Instead, he’s apparently joining forces with a few guys near and dear to his heart. You might just say he’d like to shoot commercials with them… forever.

Have mercy! 'Full House' band Jesse and the Rippers will reunite on TV Friday

Like many a late ’80s/early ’90s rock band, Jesse and the Rippers faded into obscurity long ago. The group’s original frontman was dishonorably discharged from the band back in 1994 due to “commitment issues.” Though he moved on first by founding a new band called Hot Daddy and the Monkey Puppets, then by managing up-and-coming teen group Girl Talk, he could never quite recapture the spark of his “Forever” days.

Sources say that a 50-something Jesse Katsopolis can still be found in San Francisco, where he lives off his wife’s salary (she’s currently the head of programming at Channel 8 News) while struggling to keep the Smash Club open. Much of the couple’s funds are sucked up by their now-22-year-old twins Nicky and Alex, who have proved utterly unemployable. The whereabouts of the other Rippers have remained unknown… until now.

That’s because Jesse and the Rippers — a.k.a. John Stamos and a bunch of dudes whose names you wouldn’t recognize — are set to reunite this Friday, July 19 on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. People confirmed the news shortly after Stamos posted this mysterious video on his Instagram page:

'Bandz a' makes Stephanie Tanner dance

Full House actress Jodie Sweetin may have just separated from her husband in real life, but at least that gives us an excuse to celebrate the flyness of Stephanie Tanner. And she becomes all the more fly in a video that sets Steph’s dance, originally performed to the B-52′s “Love Shack,” to rapper Juicy J’s “Bandz a Make Her Dance.” Why? Because the Internet, that’s why. Watch it below. READ FULL STORY

Nostalgia alert: Which '80s and '90s sitcoms should get 'Boy Meets World'-style reboots?

FULL-HOUSE

The people have spoken — and they really, really can’t wait for Girl Meets World. In the month of November, stories about GMW — the as yet un-greenlit Disney Channel sequel-slash-spinoff of Boy Meets World — accounted for a staggering half a million pageviews on EW.com, indicating that you guys take your nostalgia pretty darn seriously.

And while we’re all for reveling in the return of Cory, Topanga, and (fingers crossed) more of the Philadelphia crew, your enormous interest in Girl Meets World got us thinking about which other beloved ’80s and ’90s sitcoms might be ripe for a reboot. And we want to know which comedies you’d put on the list.

'Mad Men' in Hawaii: what can we expect? Ask 'Full House,' 'Modern Family,' 'Saved By the Bell...'

We get it, Matthew Weiner: You really love the ’80s and ’90s. Last season, it became clear that Mad Men‘s showrunner has a penchant for the alumni of shows like The Secret World of Alex Mack and Clarissa Explains It All. And today, we learned that Weiner plans to kick off season 6 with a storyline familiar to anyone who once worshiped at the altars of TGIF and Nick at Nite: the Hawaiian vacation.

So what should Don and Megan Draper expect to do and see as they soak up the sun in Maui? Judging from the family sitcoms that have already covered this territory, they’ll be greeted by cursed tikis, jewel thieves, new (and quickly forgotten) love interests, and evil land developers, among other things. Oh, and Don: Watch for falling coconuts.

The Brady Bunch (1972)
Mike and Carol’s blended brood pioneered the “let’s all go to Hawaii!” plot during the Nixon administration. Their trip provided a template for the shows that would follow in their stead: multi-episode arcs, leis, exotic island magic, surfing mishaps, and bikinis galore.
Lesson for Don & Megan: If you find an ancient tiki in the sand, for the love of Oahu, toss it into the ocean!

Dig it: Tom Hanks performs slam poem about 'Full House' -- VIDEO

Theory: Tom Hanks’ new mustache is actually an alien parasite, and it’s been controlling the Oscar winner’s brain since it settled above his upper lip sometime in September. Luckily, the ‘stache has an awesome sense of humor — which explains why Hanks has been so fun lately.

Judging by Hanks’ appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon yesterday, the farcical facial hair shows no signs of toning down the silliness. ‘Stache prompted the Cloud Atlas star to share some Full House-inspired slam poetry with Fallon’s audience. Each character’s catchphrase makes an appearance, as do The Beach Boys. And for some reason, part of it is performed in Hanks’ best Bane voice. Want to watch? You got it, dude:

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen skip 'Full House' reunion, we wonder why

It’s hard to believe that a quarter century has passed since our favorite San Franciscan extended family made their TV debut. Thankfully, the Full House gang reunited last Saturday to celebrate the milestone. Unfortunately, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (who shared the role of Michelle Tanner) were absent, leaving a void in the otherwise full house.

While Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), Lori Loughlin (Becky Katsopolis), Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler), Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), and Scott Weinger (Steve Hale), jammed to New Kids on the Block, ate a cake modeled after their iconic Victorian house, and read scenes from past episodes, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were probably too busy to attend.

Here’s why they might have missed the reunion:
