i don’t know if you can trust canadian entertainment news, but…

According to the Toronto Star, the television show “Arrested Development” may get another shot after all. Here’s a clip:

That may all change this week as the “upfronts” commence, and the American networks trot out their new schedules for advertisers and affilliates.

Starting tomorrow with the cellar-dwelling NBC, who, rumour has it, will be sticking with The Office and moving the universally panned Friends spin-off Joey off to another night, while squeezing one more season out of the flagging Will & Grace.

And, according to the same industry rumour-mill, we may have all sounded the death-knell too early for the perpetually ratings-challenged Arrested Development. Fox ends the upfronts Friday with its seasonal announcements, one of which is said to be a two-season pick-up for the battling Bluths.

    I read at tvguide.com that Fox officially announces its schedule on Thursday so we’ll know for sure then.

    I could live with one, but two would be great… For three, I’d give up the blog… For a special guest-starring role I’d join the Bush administration.

    I have way more faith in the Canadian media than I do ours.

    Again, I’m not sure what you’re getting at, Mr. Galt. I wouldn’t consider myself a big fan of Iranian fanatacism of any sort… Are you suggesting that I should spend more time talking about the fanatics in Iran and less time talking about the ones here that are threatening our democracy?
