I don't know how many of you are fans of the FOX television show "Arrested Development"? I am a huge fan; I think that it is one of the most original, funny, creative shows that they have put out in years; however, I think that it is getting the plug from the pointy headed executives at FOX (despite the loyal following and all of the awards it has recieved)
Here is an article that I got from aintitcoolnews.com that any of the fans of this show might find interesting
ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT Shuttered??
I am - Hercules!!
Is the banana stand closing shop?
Did Fox lose all confidence in “Arrested Development” when the Hollywood Association of Waiters and Cabdriv GÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Âª er, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association decided to bestow its all-important “best comedy” Golden Globe on “Desperate Housewives” instead?
A Jimmy Kimmel viewer relates:
I was not too worried, but obviously upset when earlier today their 22 episode season was reduced to 18 in favour of more American Dad, but David Cross on Jimmy Kimmel tonight said the show "stopped production" this morning. It sounds like they are more or less through. Which is just truly terrible, as this was one of the remaining watchable TV programs, and probably the best comedy around. Please post this so others can be aware and maybe help.
Well, yes, when the order is trimmed, production will stop sooner rather than later. But did Cross say something about it defintitely not starting up again next season?
As far as I know, Fox has not formally pulled the plug on “Arrested,” and has at least till mid-May to decide if the comedy will turn up on its 2005-06 slate. Still, giving the borrible “American Dad” its timeslot for May sweeps? Not the best sign.
My advice for "Development" fans? Sign up for cable.
Long live "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
Long live "South Park."
