Did I just not read carefully enough? TV Guide's Winter TV Preview 2007 listed 43 new and returning shows, but I did not see Fox's zany, irreverent The Loop
listed. I understood that Fox was lightening its mid-season order from 13 episodes to 10, but I still thought we would see it returning Wednesday nights at 9:30, after the American Idol
results shows. Please tell me Fox did not pull an Arrested Development
and bail on another promising-but-underperforming comedy.Answer:
I checked with Fox, and The Loop
is still in the mid-season loop and very well could return to the schedule in March (or thereabouts), once American Idol
moves into its results phase. Nothing's been announced yet, but that could change once Fox meets the press on its TCA day on Jan. 20.
