If news of a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel left you wondering why anyone would ever think to do that, you can probably blame basic cable as a whole. According to a new study from analytics company IHS (via), the amount of movies aired on cable networks hit a three-year high on 2013, and at the top of the list for individual airings was Mrs. Doubtfire. Keeping the 1993 Chris Columbus comedy in the public eye, cable averaged over one airing a week of the film, playing it 66 times across five separate networks. Sadly, like with a stovetop slowly scorching a prosthetic bosom, it's only after the damage is done that we realize what a painful mistake that was.
