Yeah, March is what I read on TVTome. No idea if that's accurate or not.

Since it came back a few months ago, I thought it was doing pretty well in the ratings. I guess it wasn't?

This and Scrubs are the two funniest and most original sitcoms on TV right now. Actually, they're the only non-animated comedies that I watch. Everything else is recycled crap to me.

Richter Takes Role in CBS Pilot
Thu, Mar 6, 2003 02:29 PM PDT


LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - It's still possible that FOX will bring "Andy Richter Controls the Universe" back next season. In the meantime, though, its star has taken a role on a CBS pilot.

Richter has joined the cast of "The Lunchbox Chronicles," a comedy about a recently widowed woman adjusting to single motherhood with her two kids. Monica Potter ("Along Came a Spider" ) has the lead role, and Richter will play her friend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

For Richter, the pilot is in "second position," meaning he would return to the FOX series if it's picked up, regardless of the pilot's status. Should both shows make it to the fall schedule, CBS would recast Richter's role.

"Andy Richter Controls the Universe" is a favorite among critics, it's had trouble attracting an audience this season. It's averaged only about 7 million viewers a week, a significant drop-off from its Sunday night lead-in, "Malcolm in the Middle."

FOX, pulled the show from its February sweeps schedule, still has several completed episodes. No airdate has been set, a network spokesman says.


This would suck! Andy Richter, along with Scrubs, are 2 of the most innovative comedies on tv today!

Gee - I wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that it was never consistently shown there except maybe when it was up again The Sopranos and now it is to return up against Six Feet Under. FOX does NOT know how to schedule its shows nor how to maintain any consistency with their schedules.

Richter should just move on. I think FOX has been yanking his chain for almost two seasons now with this project. Fish or cut bait!

That sounds so damn bland.

But, I guess Richter's got to look out for the possibility that FOX won't come through for him...
