'My Name Is Earl' is dead, again, still
First "My Name Is Earl" wasn't included in NBC's original infront presentation announcement. Then it wasn't included in NBC's formal fall and midseason schedule. Then FOX didn't snag it. Then, this week, TBS didn't snag it.
"My Name Is Earl" finally appears to really be dead. So that means it'll get picked up by Telemundo next week, right?
If so, the resurrection of the Emmy-winning comedy, which starred Jason Lee, will come as a surprise to creator Greg Garcia and to 20th Century Fox TV.
"While we had hoped to find a way to produce additional episodes for TBS, in the final analysis we simply could not make the economics work without seriously undermining the artistic integrity of the series," says a studio statement. "As none of us, Greg included, want the show to go out on anything but a high note, we regret that we must put to rest any speculation that Earl will continue. We are grateful to everyone at TBS for their enthusiasm for the series and wish to offer our heartfelt thanks to the cast and crew of My Name is Earl for their incredible work."
