Lowe, whose debacle of an opening number turns 30 next year, says at least the moment was memorable. "Eighty percent of America can’t tell you what won best picture in any given year," he says. "So in an era when staying in the conversation is as important as anything else, I for sure have gotten more money and acclaim out of being in that Oscar opening number than if I had won an Oscar. And that’s fitting." Lowe tells The New York Times that the 1989 Oscars is a big part of his stage show, Stories I Only Tell My Friends: Live, and that the actress who played Snow White, Eileen Bowman, even appeared on stage with him at one one show. "It’s always been a huge relief to me that after Snow White, the Oscars got their act together and avoided any further controversy and embarrassment," Lowe says sarcastically. "By the way, it’s basically a show that nobody wants to do. It’s really sad. But honestly, they’ve got nobody to blame but themselves."

Rob Lowe: CBS' talk of reviving Code Black "should be taken with a mound of salt"
Lowe tweeted skepticism in response to CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl saying that the canceled CBS drama might be un-canceled. "Unfortunately, this should be taken with a mound of salt," Lowe tweeted. "There as been no official outreach to the show runner. Easier for them to give this non-specific, fuzzy quote than explain why they cancelled a well respected and well rated show."

CBS may un-cancel Code Black
The Rob Lowe-Marcia Gay Harden medical drama was canceled on May 24 after three seasons, but it has performed well in the nine episodes that aired following the cancelation through its July 18 "series finale." CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl said at TV press tour that Code Black has done so well, he's seriously considering bringing it back from cancelation. "It's doing incredibly well. It's a well-done show, and we'd like to figure out a way to maybe make it work," he said, adding: "Economics are a little challenging to be honest, but it's certainly performing well, and we're going to take a look." On June 14, Lowe pointed out on Twitter that Code Black was still performing well despite its cancelation. "I wonder how (cancelled) 'Code Black' being the NUMBER ONE show of the night, fits into CBS new business model. Asking for a friend (and a crew of 150 people)"
