Finally returning to Channel 7. cheerful.gif This episode is another hilarious one as Michael has a one-night stand with a blind woman, only to feel guilty after. Pity that 7 don’t have the guts to show it at a decent time, but its better then nothing I suppose.

When is this? What timeslot?

Seven should consider showing this in primetime on Sunday nights, insted of filler movies.

Bugger that, put it on 10:20 and bump LMS to 10:50!

Or, you can see my original post.

ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT
Tues, 11.20pm, Seven

Its trophy shelf may be full, but this hilarious American comedy still can't secure a primetime slot in this country.

The return of the ingeniously dark Arrested Development this week also heralds the return of late nights - and we thought the Ashes were over - with Seven airing the award-winning series in an 11.20pm Tuesday timeslot. Gottaloveit!

Arrested Development continues its exploration of the absurd through the eyes of Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) and his hapless family. Australia's Portia de Rossi is amongst them.

C'mon Seven, give the best US comedy in years a decent home.

I hate this column with a passion, if you read the tune out section he defames ten for airing the emmy award wining series - Monk with the suggestion it be replaced with Escape with ET. The moron :sarcastic:

I hate the column too. He writes about bad shows that are on ABC at midnight, like anybody cares. Well, Arrested Development is on late at night for 'night owls" like him, and anyway it will only be on at 11:20 until DWTS shortens.

With Raymond, Seinfeld, Just Shoot Me, and Frasier all at the end of their runs, wouldn't it be good to see a new comedy in primetime, instead of crappy lifestyle and reality shows.
I refer to Arrested Development, one of the best shows on television, yet consistently given a bad deal from Seven. Why you would put such a well-written/acted show on at such a bad time is beyond me.
Anyone else watch this, and can agree with me on its hilarity?

Not to mention, from next week it's gone again, and replaced with late night repeats of Desperate Housewives.

Oh and there's already a thread here for A.D.

I love Arrested Development. The problem is, most people won't find it funny or understand it.

And no, I didn't see the same two episodes in a row.

They might, if they got the chance to watch it. It seems to be doing pretty well overseas.

Pretty funny again last night, with the twin brother in town.
One of the best comedies on TV.

Bad news out of the US today - It seems FOX has cancelled Arreseted Development and reduced the season from 22 episodes to 13.

This is bad news, but unfortunately it just wasn't rating (Ironically it has twice the amount of viewers than the Dancing with the Stars Final with 4.1 million people tuning in in the US.)

More - http://news.bbc.co.u...dio/4431576.stm

Sorry to be the bearer of Bad news to all the fans out there. Who knows maybe another network will pick it up. Comedy Central or HBO would be an obvious choice.
