ABC has made off with NBC's Last Comic Standing. The Alphabet net is developing a sitcom for second-season Comic champ, John Heffron, per Variety. NBC had first crack at Heffron's services, but Peacock execs ultimately decided not to pursue a project with him. So, if his ABC show becomes a hit, expect a "boardroom first" at NBC's Burbank headquarters.
