"Andy Barker" Banished to Saturday Night

"Andy Barker" Banished to Saturday Night

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.

Oh, yeah, been loving Raines. I tried to give Andy a chance, but the show just isn't that good. The acting is not on par with 30 Rock and the storylines are just silly. ------------------------------------------------------ "What's got two thumbs and hates Todd Packer, This Guy! Jim Halpert

If NBC would actually give their new shows a chance we would all appreciate it. Here's a concept...give a show a time-slot, leave it there and don't show repeats (of the shows preceding it either!) and give it a chance. It isn't rocket science. How many potentially great NBC shows are possibly biting the dust already...Studio 60, The Black Donnelly's, maybe Friday Night Lights. Sheesh.

Is there any news about the celebrity dance show that Amy Sedaris is slated to host this summer?

I like this show. I love the new show Raines, and that was banished to Friday. It's so imaginative and the inside jokes about L.A. are great. I don't know why the best new shows are always cancelled and the worst ones seem to catch on.
