Those Fuckers at Fox

Arrested Development is too smart for its own good. It's well-written and very sharp, but since most of today's tv audience are reminisicent of that flabber-armed fundy fucknut (the one they keep showing the commercials about) from "Trading Spouses", it's not surprising that they don't understand the wit and wonder why there isn't a laugh track. Then they'll at least know when to laugh. Fucking sheep.

Kitchen Confidential is also a smart show. It's taken a bit of time to gain its footing, but if you give a show a little room to breathe and don't immediately jump down their fucking throat, you might actually have a hit.

I blame George Bush. - In Fox penalty box: "It's not looking good for 'Arrested Development''Arrested Development' or frosh laffer 'Kitchen Confidential.'

Fox has cut back its episode order on the critically admired 'Arrested' to just 13 segs, down from 22. Producers of 'Kitchen,' meanwhile, have been told the show won't be getting a full-season pickup.

More worrisome: Fox is pulling both shows from the schedule, effective immediately. 'Arrested' returned from a month's hiatus this week, while 'Kitchen''Kitchen' was slated to return Monday.

Instead of the two laffers, Fox will air repeats of drama 'Prison Break' in the 8-9 p.m. Monday slot for the rest of the November sweeps. It's presumed 'Arrested' and 'Kitchen' will return to finish out the remainder of their runs in December. Come January, net has long planned to move 'House' into the Monday slot.

Fox wasn't commenting Thursday morning, and for now, nobody's using the word 'cancellation.' But in the case of 'Arrested,' the handwriting appears to be on the wall.

While numbers for 'Arrested' were underwhelming this week, it's worth noting that a number of returning laffers -- including Fox's 'Stacked' -- aren't doing much better."
