Mary-Kate, Ashley Olsen won't be on 'Fuller House'; Uncle Jesse 'heartbroken'

You don’t got it, dude.

It appears Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will not be reprising their role as Michelle Tanner in Netflix’s “Fuller House,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The Hollywood Reporter cited a statement from executive producer Robert L. Boyett about the absence of the 28-year-old twins in the sequel to the popular sitcom "Full House."

“Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of 'Fuller House,' I know how much 'Full House' has meant to them and they are still very much considered family," Boyett said in the statement cited by the entertainment trade publication.

The Olsens and Boyett could not be reached for additional comment.

Around 7 p.m., actor John Stamos posted on his verified Twitter account that he was "heartbroken." 

"I understand they're in a different place and I wish them the best. I promise you will not be dissapointed with our reunion and spin off!!" Stamos tweeted. 

About 8:30 p.m., Stamos posted a separate message to his verified Facebook page.

Envelope Screening: Less is more with music for 'American Crime'

"American Crime," ABC's drama about the racial and cultural impact of a brutal home invasion of a suburban white couple, is surprisingly quiet. Creator and executive producer John Ridley wanted to convey his story without a lot of music.

That doesn't mean the music wasn't a key factor. The show's composer, Mark Isham, said the series presented a unique challenge in terms of conveying emotion through music.

"I've always said the most important thing a composer can do is start and stop," said Isham, who has composed scores for more than 100 films. "That entrance can be the most impactful thing a piece of music can do."

Isham said Ridley had a "pretty rigorous aesthetic" about when to use music. "Consequently, we really milk it when we use it."

Farewell to David Letterman, 'a force of nature'

A colleague came by my desk a couple of weeks ago to discuss the unexpected sorrow he felt while watching the final weeks of "Late Night With David Letterman."

"I am surprised at how much it means to me," he said.

I nodded sympathetically, but a lot was going on. Bruce Jenner had just come out as transgender, Baltimore was burning, "Mad Men" was ending, and the demands of Emmy season had begun. I knew, of course, that Dave was retiring and had been watching sporadically. To be honest, I had recorded more than I had watched, figuring I would crash through the final episodes and revisit some of the greatest hits in the days before the actual finale.

Full coverage: David Letterman retires

When I did, I realized exactly what my friend had been talking about. Like millions of Americans, I have watched David Letterman pretty much my entire life. Now he has left, and it feels like the bottom of my heart has come loose.

If there was any legitimate reason to choose sides in the vaunted late-night...
