Oooooh dearie! Don't tell Miss Congeniality fans about this!
Even though you FEEL like the Sandra Bullock movie is on all the time, it's NOT!
Turns out that Robin Williams' famed film Mrs. Doubtfire has won the title of the most aired movie on basic cable in 2013!
Which is fitting since it marked its 20-year anniversary last year!
Apparently the film was shown a total of 66 times during the course of the year!
Totally good news for the sequel!
Even though Mara Wilson doesn't want any part in the film, seems like everyone else in the world is ready for more Doubtfire!
We just hope that the second is as good as the first!

Here we go!
Just one day after the launch of Oprah Winfrey's new cable channel OWN, fans flooded her website with messages complaining over the new cable fees that they will have to pay to add her channel to their TV lineup.
Some of the angry messages included:
"Cannot believe Oprah would launch a new show on a cable channel that is not part of the basic service."
"She will be losing some of her most loyal fans because they either do not have cable or they have basic cable. I have basic cable and do not plan on changing my cable service."
"Oprah has lost me as I am sure many other people. Too bad that she didn't look into a channel that would serve everyone."
"I am very disappointed that I will not be able to watch Oprah (whom I love). I cannot afford to pay the extra monthly fee."
Regardless of the complaints, we still think Oprah's new channel will be a success.
Did U watch the launch of OWN this past weekend?
