TBS in Talks to Pick Up 13 Episodes of Canceled NBC Comedy My Name is Earl

My Name Is Earl Could Return on TBS


NBC didn't order any more My Name Is Earl last month, but that may not be the end of the show after all: TBS is now in talks to revive the comedy.

The negotiations are still in the early stages, and none of the cast members have signed on. But word is TBS would consider picking up the show for 13 more episodes. Presumably it would be a lower-budget version of the show — but Earl's world doesn't seem like one that would be too hard to re-create for less money.

Fox and ABC also considered reviving the show but ultimately passed on it. TBS seems like a good fit, especially since the channel already has a deal to show repeats of Earl, and I could see it fitting in with other TBS comedies like The Bill Engvall Show. What do you think? Would you follow Earl to TBS?
