Is It Last Call for Fox's Happy Hour?

We may have a winner ? meaning an expedient loser ? in the dubious race to be the fall season's first canceled series. Fox is bumping this week's episode of Happy Hour (trust me, it's an actual show) in favor of a 'Til Death repeat, meaning the sitcom isn't scheduled to return to the airwaves until Nov. 2, following the network's October baseball coverage. A Fox rep, though, insists to Variety that "no shows have been canceled." Similarly but less forebodingly, Fox's Justice has had its Oct. 4, last pre-baseball outing scratched, lest it face off against the season premiere of Lost. read more

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Betty: Part 2

Here now, the rest of mine own fall forecast:WednesdayThe Nine, ABC: A fun little cast of familiar faces (24's Audrey! Bailey Salinger! The shadowy Prison Break dude!) and a far-out premise make this serialized drama more than worthy of a long hard look. But the crux of the show ? What exactly happened to the nine people involved in a seemingly life-altering 52-hour bank hostage situation? ? could prove frustrating if the mad-cryptic flashbacks are only parceled out mere seconds at a time. Jericho, CBS: As I told the show's publicist, I was loving this pilot, about a small town isolated from the rest of civilization after some sort of nuclear assault on major cities, until the very final scene, which in my opinion rang illogical. Blocking that moment out, however, I'm excited for this series. Justice, Fox: Alias' Spy Daddy (Victor Garber) as the most cunning of cunning, high-priced defense attorneys? I'm so there. Plus, I like the gimmick of showing us, in the coda, what really happ... read more

Will The O.C. return to its 8 ...

Question: Will The O.C. return to its 8 pm/ET slot? The move to 9 pm/ET last season conflicted with CSI. They are both great shows, and I enjoy watching one then the other, not flipping back and forth and missing things. Answer: For the moment, and unless Fox changes its mind between now and The O.C.'s Nov. 2 premiere date, the show will still air at 9 pm on Thursdays. (Two new comedies will provide the lead-in, though I'll be amazed if Happy Hour makes it past the baseball hiatus.) In the spirit of public service, let me prepare you for the inevitable. This is almost certainly The O.C.'s last hurrah. Not only will it still be facing CSI, but Grey's Anatomy is going to crush it even further. (Given the competition, and the counterprogramming, I'm wondering if even CW's enjoyable Supernatural will beat it by the time The O.C. finally limps back onto the schedule. ... read more

Now that Arrested Development ...

Question: Now that Arrested Development is gone, does Fox have any promising new comedies set for its fall lineup? I read that they have a Brad Garrett show, but that doesn't really feel like the kind of cutting-edge comedy they have attempted for so many years now. Have they finally given up after canceling most of their best comedies too soon, or have the cutting-edge comedies gotten tired of being jerked around by Fox? Answer: It's true that this season Fox is going more mainstream in its comedy choices. Fox Entertainment chief Peter Liguori says the network did develop a few single-camera (read: cutting-edge) pilots that didn't work out. I think it's a mistake, though, to assume that just because a comedy is done the old-fashioned way (with multiple cameras on a soundstage before a studio audience) it's automatically not as worthy or as funny as a more stylized, filmed piece (à la Arrested Development, Scrubs or My Name Is Earl). Some terrific work can still be done in this format. ... read more
