What About Bob? Saget's Show May Survive Away from CW
Bob Saget will still lord over another full house, sources tell TVGuide.com, despite concerns that his new sitcom had been rendered homeless.
As previously reported, the CW announced on Thursday that Media Rights Capital would no longer program the netlet's Sunday slate. Instead, the CW would reclaim ownership, filling the hours with repeats of such series as Everybody Hates Chris and Jericho, as well as broadcasts of MGM movies.
In addition to giving Jericho fans a jolt (and, in some cases, false hope for a Season 3 resurrection), the Sunday shake-up cast doubt on the fate of Surviving Suburbia, a half-hour sitcom starring Saget and pegged for a spring 2009 bow on the CW.
But sources close to the production inform TVGuide.com that with the CW out of the picture, the series is actively being shopped to the major networks. Until that new home is found, production will be completed on the family-centric laffer's original 13-episode order.
