John Goodman & Jean Smart: Center of the Universe Sometimes having two super big-shots can hurt a show more than help it. Expectations get raised to impossible levels. Hopes are unreasonably high. Thats what happened with 2004s Center of the Universe, starring Roseanne alum John Goodman and Jean Smart of the beloved Designing Women. And with Olympia Dukakis playing a grandma, this show had almost nowhere to go but down. Grade: Major Failure. Theres no such thing as a sure thing.
