Well, so much for all my theories about NBC giving "Andy Barker, PI" time to grow. After the show got low ratings again last week, NBC has decided to air the final two episodes of its season on Saturday night, aka the Death Valley of television.
The one glimmer of good news: the once online-only episode featuring Amy Sedaris now gets to air on TV. That's my favorite of the bunch, so at least "Andy Barker" will go out on a high note.
NBC hasn't said anything about the show's ultimate fate, but this can't be a good sign. Sure, there were plenty of doomsday stories written about "The Office" in its first season, too. But NBC is already saving "30 Rock," a slightly better-rated and more-beloved Thursday comedy, so I think this might spell the end for "Andy." Catch it while you can, either Saturday at 8 p.m. or online at the NBC site.
