'Bosom Buddies' (1980-1982)
By Emily Christianson, Los Angeles Times

Like a 1980s version of "Some Like It Hot," Hanks, left, and costar Peter Scolari donned wigs and dresses to rent an apartment in a women-only building. Now, for the first time in nearly 30 years, Hanks is reuniting publicly with costar Scolari at the 2010 TV Land Awards to accept the Anniversary Award.

Psychologist and columnist Dr. Joyce Brothers, who died Monday at the age of 85, won the top prize in 1955 on the popular TV game show "The $64,000 Question" on the subject of boxing.
Smart, attractive and fearless, Brothers' media career quickly skyrocketed.
Along with offering advice and expertise on countless talk shows for nearly six decades, Brothers had a secondary and lucrative career appearing as herself and as an actress in TV series and feature films including "The Love Boat," "Love, American Style," "The Munsters Today," "Baywatch," "The Larry Sanders Show," "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour," "Exit to Eden," "Dear God," "The Howard Stern Show" and the 1993 episode "Last Exit to Springfield" on Fox's "The Simpsons."
In 2003, she was nominated for a TV Land Award for most memorable female guest star in a comedy series. She played herself in a 1984 episode of "Happy Days."
