Coming this fall: less comedy, more drama
You would think that the early, painful demise of The Nine, Kidnapped, Smith, Six Degrees, and other new dramas this season that there would be more comedy pilots picked up for the 2007 season. But according to The Hollywood Reporter, that's not the case.
Except for some solid buzz from a handful of comedies, including ABC's Sam I Am, ABC's Cavemen and Miss/Guided, and several shows at CBS, it looks like more dramas will make the schedule, including NBC's Bionic Woman and Journeyman, ABC's Dirty Sexy Money and Pushing Daisies, CBS' Babylon Fields, The Man, and Viva Laughlin. The new Jimmy Smits drama might replace Close To Home on Fridays, while FOX has the much-hyped Sarah Connor Chronicles, K-Ville, and Them.
The big comedy news, if you can call it "big" news, is the The Knights of Prosperity might not be dead after all! ABC is thinking of bringing it back, only with Ray Romano in the Mick Jagger role.
Of course, we'll know more next week, as the networks unveil their new fall lineups. We'll have full coverage here at TV Squad, and you can tell us what you think of the new shows (and the canceled shows).
