Sorry “Family Matters” fans-it’s not Urkel and company — It’s the former cast of ABC’s “Full House”that is eyeing a full return to television. “TV Guide” says Warner Bros. is weighing interest in bringing back the late ’80s sitcom and that John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse, is leading the charge for comeback. Stamos’ former co-stars Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are also said to be on board with the idea, as are now grown-up “Full House” kids Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin, who played D.J. and Stephanie Tanner on the series. Merchandising moguls Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who rose to fame sharing the role as Tanner toddler Michelle on “Full House,” are apparently the only names absent from the list of returning names. “Full House” originally aired from 1987 to 1995 on ABC. The show currently airs on “Nick at Nite,” and has built a new fan base by averaging 1.5 million viewers a night.
