#DepressingTVReboots: With the Current Reboot Fever on TV, Twitter Offers Some Suggestions

David Tennant to star in Doctor Wha?
This was a fun little trending topic I noticed on Twitter yesterday.  Apparently the recent announcement of the Full House revival on Netflix (along with all the other revivals in the works) sparked plenty of suggestions for more reboots and revivals such as Saved by the Bail from ‏@SusiePlascencia, Pee Wee's Half-Way House from @shelikesitloud, and Mystery Creationism Theater 3000 from (@nerdist).  Among my suggests were Doctor Wha?, The Hot Flash, The Beverly Hillbilly Cop, Star Trek: Deep Throat 9, The Six Trillion Dollar Deficit Man, Gilligan's Temptation Island, CSI: Mayberry, and McHale's NCIS.  I hear the CBS saw those last two and is actually working on getting something into development . . . 

Here's some more of the suggestions from Twitter and you can search #DepressingTVReboots to find even more and/or make your suggestions:
