Which 'Full House' star should host 'America's Funniest Home Videos'?

Tom Bergeron is stepping down as host of America’s Funniest Home Videos, leaving the coveted spot open (hey, it’s about as steady as a showbiz job gets). When thinking of who should replace him, our minds immediately went to Bob Saget, who hosted the show from 1989 to 1997, but then we thought: What if every Full House star — not just Danny Tanner — was eligible for the position? After all, this has already been the year of Full House reunions with Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier’s multiple TV appearances together and the upcoming Candace Cameron Bure/Scott Weinger guest spots on The Neighbors.

To further this recent wave of Full House nostalgia, here’s our evaluation of the host abilities of each Tanner (and honorary Tanner): READ FULL STORY

'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…

John Stamos and 'Full House' gang are together again in Oikos Super Bowl ad -- VIDEO

You’ve seen the teaser, and now it’s time for the real deal: Here is a yogurt commercial that implies John Stamos, Bob Saget, and Dave Coulier are 1. living together, 2. basically extensions of their Full House personae, and 3. still all up in each others’ business. How rude!

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.

John Stamos on gathering celeb sex stories -- for a new web series

Admit it: If you had to tell one member of Full House‘s cast the story of how you lost your virginity, you’d obviously choose Uncle Jesse. (Or maybe Aunt Becky — you know she wouldn’t judge.)

That’s the basic idea behind Losing It With John Stamos, a new series of shorts that debuted earlier this week on Yahoo Screen. The premise is simple: Stamos sits down with a celebrity, who regales him with a story about turning in his or her v-card. Occasionally, bits are re-enacted by cute cartoon characters or puppets. (That’s got to be the stamp of documentarian Morgan Spurlock, who serves with Stamos as co-EP.)

Where did Stamos get the idea for Losing It? More importantly, how does he convince his famous pals to participate? The ex-Full Houser spills all in our interview — and also reveals whether Joey Gladstone is next in line.

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:

Why don't you age?! 11 stars who might be immortal

The Following features a lot of scary imagery — the word “NEVERMORE” scrawled in blood on a wall, those creepy Edgar Allan Poe masks, oodles and oodles of gouged-out eyeballs. But the spookiest thing about the show may be its star — whose face in 2013 is almost as boyish as it was when he starred in Footloose nearly three decades ago.

What can explain Bacon’s immortal looks — good genes? An all-kale diet? Is he secretly a vampire, maybe? Whatever the cause, he’s not alone — Hollywood is filled with folks who never seem to age. Here’s a list of the top 11; let’s hope they share the secret to eternal life with the rest of us someday.

Jennifer Lawrence talks John Stamos, Puppy Bowl, and beer on 'Conan' -- VIDEO

Jennifer Lawrence is just like you: She’s open about a crush on John Stamos from his Full House days, and thinks the Puppy Bowl is “genius.”

Lawrence continued her quest for total talk show domination last night on Conan, with an appearance that started off on a gushing note. “I’ve been watching the show for 15 years and I’m 22 years old,” she said. “The producer said to me, ‘Andy Richter’s going to hug you,’ and I started tearing up.” She explained that prior to this interview, O’Brien had swung by her dressing room and she had forced him to do many of his signature bits for her, including the String Dance.

The love was clearly mutual. While O’Brien praised her performance in Silver Linings Playbook, he also had fun teasing the star, who could more than keep up with him. While talking about a Super Bowl party she threw for her friends at her house, she explained that her plans were more about a little event that happened prior to the big game. “It was just a lot of drinking, I guess,” Lawrence said of the party. “We watched the Puppy Bowl…. It’s just puppies! And then they have a little camera in the water bowl — it’s genius!” READ FULL STORY
