Arrested Development (Mostly Likely) Will Return

But not to FOX (unless they wise up).

They had Brian Grazer (Glazer?) on the radio this morning. He said that they've been shopping the show around and there is PLENTY of interest from networks and that it WILL be coming back. Didn't say when or who, but gave enough hints that suggest ABC.

(Those who ask for a link please remember he was on the RADIO).

Glad to hear there's plenty of interest in the show, hopefully it works out!

As long as it doesn't go to HBO (since I don't have it). Plus, I also don't feel like paying twice as much for the DVDs when they come out.

Going to HBO would be a good thing(extra DVD cost notwithstanding). The Nielsen ratings would no longer be a monkey on its back. They'd likely cut the episode order to 10-15, but the shows would be 30 minutes instead of 22, so that wouldn't be too big a loss.

Honestly, as long as it remains on TV somewhere, I'll be happy.

Same here. If it's on tv somewhere, I'll find it.

HBO wouldn't release the DVDs, so the pricing wouldn't change.

This is spectacular news. I will follow this show anywhere. If it goes to ABC, I will watch it on ABC. If it goes to Noggin, I will camp outside my cable company until they add Noggin to the lineup -- and if they don't, I will switch cable companies. If it goes to Univision, I will learn Spanish.

I am with you on this, and fortuantly for me I already have Noggin!


But they have to bring the 1st 3 seasons with them, be able to rebroadcast to bring everyone up to the new season. Anyone know if this could be a possibility?

What, is Telemundo too low-rent for you people? We can't be demanding!

I have a hard time believing ABC is a possibility, but stranger things have happened.

Personally, I think Local Cable Access might be good... they would have to lower their budget a lot... but Busters hand would still be covered!

Here's to hoping it finds a good home on a network with an HD channel.

I'll believe it when I see. Other networks picking up cancelled shows is extremely rare.

True, but usually shows don't have as much critical acclaim as AD does.

Critical acclaim doesn't pay the bills. The show will be picked up by someone else only if that someone else thinks it can make money with it.

I never said it did. But if you look at ABC's schedule (the one rumored network), they have comedies that do well in the ratings. Pairing the show with one of those instead of how Fox just dangled the show out in never-never land as they did this last year, would certainly help the show.

I would hardly call putting it in the post-Simpsons slot "dangling it out in never-never land." You can't blame FOX scheduling for the lack of rating success.

I said this year. Not when it was behind the Simpsons.

You said "this last year" - make up your mind.

Monday at 8 is not never-never land either. Friday is never-never land. Thursday at 9 vs a powerhouse like CSI is never-never land.
