'Breaking In' Still Alive at Fox ... Sort Of

Breaking InSomehow, Fox's 'Breaking In' is still alive. The Christian Slater comedy was bounced around the network's schedule, shedding viewers like wildfire.

Premiering to close to 10 million viewers and fizzling to just over 3 million, the series was as good as dead ... until Fox picked up the actor's contracts for a possible Season 2.

According to Deadline, the actors are contracted until Nov. 15, making 'Breaking In' a possible mid-season contender. Fox is splitting the cost of keeping the actors under contract with producer Sony Pictures TV.

Also on the docket for possible mid-season debuts are the Rob Thomas comedy 'Little in Common' and the Mike O'Malley-fronted 'Family Album.' Both shows are undergoing recasts and additional shooting.

'Little in Common' is dropping Paula Mashall, Lombardo Boyar and one child actor. 'Family Album' has extended the contracts of O'Malley, Rachael Harris and Rob Huebel.

Meanwhile, Ethan Hawke's 'Exit Strategy' is officially dead.

Breaking In is the funniest sitcom I've seen in a long time! It has just the right amount of geeky humor. I will be very disappointed if they do not decide to continue for a second season.

This show has more potential then most. It is not just a slap stick comedy or a corny tna show. The casting is great here they just need to find there nitch crowd. It has a young feel so a 930 airing is kinda late IMO. Slater will bring the female demographic and Dutch is a great character. Adding more of Oz's wife wouldn't hurt either. I say put it on at 700-730 and see what happens.

This is very good news. "Breaking In" was actually one of the better shows on TV last year -- innovative and full of surprises. Congratulations to Fox for having the good sense to rethink the cancellation. Given the right time slot, this show could be a smash hit.
