If Gary Unmarried is renewed, it will be without its creator

Gary UnmarriedWhile it's still waiting to find out if it might get renewed for next season, Gary Unmarried creator Ed Yeager and fellow exec producer Ric Swartzlander have already bolted for greener pastures. Apparently it was the old "creative differences" standby that caused the problem. Now normally I'd say that a creator leaving a show would be cause for serious concern, but Gary Unmarried is a fairly traditional family-oriented sitcom, so I should think someone else could steer that ship.

The show was entertaining enough when I watched it, but I never felt particularly compelled to come back the next week and watch it again. I can't help but think that this may be enough to doom the show. CBS has a lot of new shows to look at, and with Gary just so-so in the ratings they might want to throw something else against the wall and see if they can't improve on just so-so. If it does get yanked, they can have Jay Mohr return to the just renewed Ghost Whisperer. He's a better foil for Melinda than the still awkward Jamie Kennedy anyway.

I like the show as well, so I hope it comes back. As for KFC - it's going to get worse and worse and worse - more shows are going to start this crap because of TiVO and DVR's etc. I hate advertising and this could get annoying. IF they just show the items etc it will be OK - but if the show starts running the actual adds during the show - -it's over.

I was all for Gary: Unmarried until last week's episode when it became a big KFC commercial and pretty much gave returning soldiers a really, really bad reputation.

So it might actually be time for some new blood.
