View Full Version : Which new sitcom will be the first to be cancelled?
My vote will go to Yes, Dear on CBS. Mike O'Malley means almost instant death for a sitcom.. who could forget last year Mike O'Malley Show on NBC? If you blinked, you missed it...

I agree. Why would CBS take such a chance? From what I've seen it doesn't look very funny.

That's what I thought but the ratings were pretty decent, surprisingly! I'd have to go with Tucker. Although it's going to be close this year with a lot of pretty bad shows.:-) ABC's Friday lineup doesn't look all that healthy, either. It'll either be Tucker or a Friday comedy from ABC. That's my guess.

Either Tucker or Madigan Men. I hope from the bottom of my heart they cancel Norm. It's only been on, what, a season or two? It seems like an eternity. The only thing I watch that has Norm McDonald is it is reruns of SNL... and that's because he was there the season that Michael McKean was.

"Childish? Childish? COming from a grown woman who throws tea parties for her stuffed cat!"
"Well at least I don't sew L's on everything I wear!"
"Well that would be pretty stupid considering your name's Shirley!"

Actually, after viewing the debut of John Goodman's "Normal, Ohio", something I'd been looking forward to, I was very disappointed. It didn't seem to make any sense, and it was sort of depressing in some ways.
However, I gave it another chance, and watched episode 2 the next week. Wow! I'd misjudged it terribly. There were many times I'd actually laughed out loud. I think Orson Bean's character is a crankier version of Marty Crane from "Frasier." John Goodman really hasn't lost a step when it comes to sitcoms. I think if they keep it up, and FOX keeps "Malcolm" as the lead-in show, it'll do just fine.
