The Ally McBeal Cast Reunites, and More from Inside the TV Land Awards

The TV Land Awards took it old school on Saturday night, bringing a little bit of country, a little bit of rock 'n roll, and a whole lot of nostalgia for their awards ceremony in Los Angeles. The event honored shows like Parenthood and Ally McBeal and folks like Donny and Marie Osmond (who joked to PEOPLE that the secret to her five decade success is "formaldehyde").

The celebration was a veritable who's who of late night re-runs! Mary Ann (Dawn Wells) from Gilligan's Island was there … Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) from The Wonder Years showed up … and Rose Nylon herself, 93-year-old Golden Girl Betty White, came to receive the Legend Award.

WEEK IN REVIEW: Last Call for 'Ally'

Originally posted 05/03/2002 01:00PM

FINAL CALL: "Ally McBeal" is planning to go out with a bang. The Los Angeles Times reported that the David E. Kelley program starring Calista Flockhart, 37, as the romantically challenged legal eagle, will bring back three departed members of the original cast for its May 20 finale -- including one whose character is deceased. (One name that didn't crop up on the returns list is Robert Downey Jr., 37, whose romantic role was essentially written out after his recent problems involving drugs.) As for those who will reappear: the return of Gil Bellows, 34, as Ally's former lover and colleague, Billy, will hardly come as a shock to fans of the series, notes the paper, given that he has made several appearances as a ghost since Billy died two years ago. Also returning for the finale, to be titled -- aptly -- "Bygones," will be Courtney Thorne-Smith, 34, who played Billy's wife, Georgia, and Lisa Nicole Carson, 32, who played Ally's roommate, Renee.
