The animated series 'The Goode Family' will make its official move to the network on Jan. 6, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

'The Goode Family,' about a socially liberal family trying to be politically correct, initially aired over the summer on ABC. Those episodes will be transfered over to Comedy Central, where they will air Wednesdays at 10:30PM.

"We started building a nice cult fan base (on ABC) and hope those fans will come back and we would be able to reach new fans on Comedy Central, where people are used to such shows," said John Altschuler, who created the series with Mike Judge and Dave Krinsky.The Goode FamilyIt's all 'Goode' on Comedy Central.

If the show does well, more episode will be ordered, according to the report.

While a cartoon about a PC family may be unique, shows switching networks is not. Here's a rundown of six other shows that crossed network lines -- for better or worse:

'American Bandstand'
The Switch: WFIL (Philadelphia) to ABC, 1957
The Result: Rock 'n Roll never died, nor did 'Bandstand,' which remained on the air until the late '80s.

'Get Smart'
The Switch: NBC to CBS, 1969
The Result: Canceled after one season. America had grown tired of the shoe phone, apparently.

'Scrubs'
The Switch: NBC to ABC, 2008
The Result: 'Scrubs' is about to enter its second season on ABC, premiering Dec. 1 at 9PM. The downside: stars Zach Braff and Sarah Chalke will not return.

'Medium'
The Switch: NBC to CBS, 2009
The Result: Teamed with 'Ghost Whisperer,' this psychic connection has yielded mostly positive results, with 'Medium' averaging about 8 million viewers each week.

'Project Runway'

The Switch: Bravo to Lifetime, 2009
The Result: After a series of messy lawsuits, 'Project Runway' became Lifetime's most-watched series premiere, with 4.2 million viewers. Ratings have since fallen about 20 percent. Talk about a 'Runway' challenge.

'Southland'
The Switch: NBC to TNT, 2009
The Result: TBD. 'Southland' begins its second season in January.
