ABC might bring back According To Jim for yet another season
I have a confession to make: I don't hate According To Jim.
Maybe it's because I'm a sucker for home-based sitcoms or maybe it's because I've had a huge crush on Courtney Thorne-Smith since the 80s (Day By Day!), but the few episodes I've seen were cute, amusing, and harmless.
Of course, that doesn't mean I necessarily welcome this news, that ABC is in talks with ABC Studios to bring the show back for an eighth season.
Now, people who have never seen the show (or have seen the show) are probably scratching their heads and wondering why this show keeps coming back, a la CBS' Yes, Dear (I'm still not 100% convinced that CBS doesn't have 5 or 6 episodes of that show still waiting to air). But if you're a fan of the show, this is undoubtedly exciting news, and you can plan your According To Jim viewing parties accordingly.
The show is currently in the middle of an 18 episode mid-season order.
