Lightbulb Potential good news for Nicole fans

I was going to post this as news, but since it doesn't directly tie in with her (yet), I'm posting it here.

According to Zap2it, the ABC shows "Thieves", "Bob Patterson", and "What About Joan" have all been canned. This leaves up to 2 free hours in their schedule which should be up for grabs after sweeps.

As you may recall, Nicole shot a pilot for ABC earlier this year called "Me & My Needs", but it wasn't picked up for fall. Could ABC's recent programming woes be her ticket to a steady slot in prime-time? Although probability isn't on her side here (Needs is one of 17 available pilots), we can only hope the network has learned from its mistakes and makes the right decision.

At any rate, stay tuned for updates. I'm all over this like a fly on an unusually nutty cow pie.

Good luck, Matt! Hope her show gets picked up! She was great on Scrubs the other night. I missed the According to Jim one, but I'm sure she was great there too.

(by the way, thanks Re: the post in the annoucements section!)

As far as that According to Jim episode goes, you didn't miss much; she had about 2-3 minutes of airtime.

(by the way, you're welcome )

"ABC has ordered a pilot from Robert DeNiro's Tribeca Films production company based on the play "Fully Committed" by Becky Mode, confirms a network spokesman.

The half-hour project is one of three comedies the network is fast-tracking for midseason, along with a TV version of the film "Legally Blonde" and a Paul Sims-Danny DeVito project about a very quirky family from Jersey Television."


So much for that. Now, not only are the big stars dominating the silver screen, they're also dominating the TV screen. Is there no room in this business for poor Nicole?

*starts kidnapping celebrities and hiding them in abandoned warehouses*

I'm really sorry, Matt. What a letdown! We can only hope that none of those last very long.
