FOX Pulls "Arrested Development"

arrested3.jpgAs I write this, I am wiping back tears. Zap2it is reporting that FOX has pulled "Arrested Development" from its lineup for November sweeps. This is definitely not a good sign, especially since they are replacing it with a rerun of the freshman drama "Prison Break."

Although the show will return in December, the network might be just be burning off remaining episodes. The show's order had been cut from 22 to 13, which is another sign that you should start TiVo'ing or stocking up on the DVDs in stores -- if you want to get a glimpse of this excellent sitcom.

You can"t necessarily blame FOX, but I am going to anyway. They don't seem to like it that much -- never promoting and always pulling and switching. But in all honesty, the show hasn't performed that well. It has never gotten a great timeslot, although it seemed that no time was a good time to ask people to actually think. And although I found this season to be hilarious, it wasn't exactly going to attract any new viewers. Despite the presence of Charlize Theron, it was friggin' weird to say the least. However, I was desperately waiting to see how it all wrapped up and what the next series of storylines would be.

FX? HBO? Are you listening? This is your time to snag a really good show with ratings that you'd appreciate.

Its partner in the Monday timeslot, "Kitchen Confidential," has also been pulled for the time being. No surprises there; I can't even remember the last time it was on, but I was looking forward to the Michael Vartan episode.

Season 2 of "Arrested Development" is currently available on DVD. Slap it on and have yourselves a good cry.
