My Name is Earl

UPDATE: EW is reporting that Earl is gone for good.

If at first you don’t succeed (on NBC), try, try again (elsewhere).

Despite receiving a cancellation notice, Medium was revived by rival network CBS last month. The move - which will place the Patricia Arquette show right after Ghost Whisperer - is being considered a win for the program.

Now it’s looking like another NBC series might be given a second chance. According to sources, TBS is in early talks to pick up My Name is Earl. (The comedy was dumped by the Peacock after four seasons and five Emmys.) If all goes well, fans could possibly find 13 new episodes of the series on the cable network.

Reruns of Earl currently air on TBS.

Things may have looked grim for the characters of Grey’s Anatomy, but the show looked alive and well last night. The program - Thursday’s top performer - had its best demo performance in 3 months and its largest audience since last fall’s premiere. The weeper gave ABC wins in both the viewers and the 18-49ers yesterday.

One week after facing a new Private Practice, Southland was put to another test. A repeat of Criminal Minds not only did better than the now-moved Harper’s Island, it attracted the most viewers in the 10:00 hour.

After what seemed like months of repeats, ABC returned last night with (mostly) new episodes. The network took the 10:00 hour away from Southland and won the night’s demos. CBS, though, was first place with the viewers.

Although it’s still hard to say how Southland will do against an ABC original, the series held up remarkably well in its second week. Unfortunately, the same can’t entirely be said for Harper’s or Parks. The CBS mystery lost nearly 2 million in its second week while the comedy suffered a case of the post-Earl blues.
