LET'S MAKE A COMPLEX DEAL

ABC has renewed Dharma &#038 Greg for at least one more season — but there's a hitch. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new deal says that the show's producer, 20th Century Fox Television, can charge the network a higher license fee (reported in the $2.4-$2.6 million range) if the sitcom stays in its current Tuesday 9 pm timeslot opposite NBC's Frasier, or a lower per-episode price ($2 million) if it's moved to a less competitive slot. Should ABC keep the comedy where it is, the network also has agreed to a two-season pickup, whereas if it moves the show, it's only committed for one more season. Got all that?
