Eddie Kaye Thomas

'Til Death' Is Really, Really Over

'Til DeathFox has confirmed some news that has been in the cards for a while: ''Til Death' has been cancelled after four seasons. Like so many other shows before it (*cough*cough* 'According To Jim'), it has avoided the axe for much longer than anticipated. ''Til Death' was even given an honor usually given to only science fiction on Fox: the Friday Night Death Slot.

Actually, by the time the show even got to its fourth season, the only consistent part of it was Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher. Eddie Kaye Thomas and Kat Foster, the next door newlywed couple that was half of the central premise of the original show, weren't even there anymore.

The best part of the Variety article was Brad Garrett's response to the situation. When they mention the showing having a 0.4 rating, he replied, "Give me a month and I'll take it to a zero." The network responded with dead silence. Those people have no sense of humor.

Poor Brad. At least he has those 7-Up commercials to keep him going.

'Til Death: Pilot (series premiere)

Brad Garrett and Joley Fisher of 'Til Death(S01E01) A lot of times when a big show, especially a sitcom, goes off the air, we see a series of spinoffs, or almost spinoffs, leading from it. When Everybody Loves Raymond left the airwaves at CBS, you could have seen it coming that Brad Garrett's character would have been perfect to have on his own. Well, howabout the best of that world, plus a whole new gig. FOX's 'Til Death plays Eddie, a schoolteacher whose new neighbor is a newlywed (12 days in or so) who also happens to be the new vice principal at the school Eddie works at.

If you'd seen any of the advertisements for the show, then you have probably gotten a pretty good idea of the style of humor on the show. That isn't to say that you know all the jokes already at all, but it's fun to see the complete and total difference between Eddie, his wife Joy (such a happy name!), and newlyweds Jeff and Steph (oh so cute with the rhyming names!). Even with all the jaded comments that Eddie makes about marriage, he and Joy have a really great time together, even if it is while they are eating snack food on the couch and watching Ellen together. You can actually see the money lines just flowing out of this show, with about halfway through the premiere being the moment when Jeff sees that all the things Eddie believes will happen to their marriage aren't just figments of his imagination. No pool table for you, young man!
