The Contra Security team of Breaking In has protected priceless works of art and famous celebrities, but the cast and crew behind the scenes of the Fox comedy are working on their biggest assignment yet: trying to get a Season 2 renewal.
Less than a week ago, the freshman comedy was one of five shows axed by Fox. Even next to the cancellations of cult favorites like Human Target and Lie to Me, the news that the network was ending Breaking In came as one of the bigger surprises because of its star power (Christian Slater, Bret Harrison) and its impressive ratings (the series has averaged 7.7 million viewers in its post-Idol berth).

On a busy Wednesday of new TV, we hear a familiar sound. It's the numbing drum roll of broadcast-network mediocrity, which beats on into the late midseason as Fox offers up a new comedy titled Breaking In (9:30/8:30c). Because heaven forbid something might actually break out this year.
