9.0 On The Richter Scale

Don't forget tonight, Andy Richter makes a comeback on NBC. Hopefully this will be as good as "Andy Ricther Controls The Universe," which should've already been on DVD (WTF, Fox?).

FOX cancels everything that's good. Excuse me while I shed another tear for Arrested Development.

Chelene,

Not only does Fox cancel everything good, but they:

A) Buy it so no one else can put it on, knowing damn well that they never wanted it in the first place.
B) Move it from night to night without any notice at all, making sure that a core audience will never be established.
C) Give up on all their non-animated shows, the minute any of the shows go down a small percentage point in the ratings.
D) They won't announce that the shows are cancelled half of the time and then they air the remaining episodes without telling the loyal audience.

Shows should have a chance to build on audience if the network isn't going to market them.

Off the top of my head, "Cheers," "Hill Street Blues" and "Seinfeld" weren't exactly ratings killers. NBC took a chance on them because of quality and the rest fell into place.

Dale,

Like Katie said, I don't know. Everytime I want to set the VCR, about five things come up around the house.

I saw a replay of it yesterday and it was pretty funny. Any show that features a car chase in a Saturn and Tony Hale has got to have a little something extra going on.

Dale,

Was the replay on Bravo? Or was it online?
