    I'm a bit surprised that some of these dead shows and unaired pilots don't end up on cable, Hulu or Youtube. They'd at least get a little of their money back. But maybe the contractual end of it is too complicated to unwind.

    It could be - or at least in the case of Next Caller - that they had not completed filming the contracted episodes. :confused:

    Was never even tempted to watch that. Interesting, being the lead show, that Guys w/ Kids is still alive. Could have to do with Fallen, it's decent, not Modern Family or anything.

    Ben & Kate is probably the best out of the freshman comedies...

    I really like Guys With Kids... I didn't expect to. It really reminds me of my friends who are dads with little kids.

    And to think they were arrogant enough to interrupt the Olympic closing ceremony to show it off. Didn't watch it partly because of that .. not to mention its stupid premise.

    Well Whitney has eye candy, an intelligent, witty script every week, and at least the stars are solid comic actors and work well together. The rest of the cast are pretty weak. It's the best sitcom going, can't think of a single one that can touch it right now. But it is a bad time for TV comedy. Hollywood seems to think that gays or a "non-conventional family" is riotously funny just by showing up these days. They kind of left that whole Larry David "comedy writing" thing behind. Like "The Player" said, "Who needs writers?"

    Somebody name one major net sitcom that can touch Whitney! I dare ya! (offer valid only in the Continental US/"Louie", "Curb" and other actually funny non-major net shows do not qualify)

    To each his own,IMO Raising Hope is by far the best comedy on tv. Great writing, great cast and a funny show with no laugh track. I expect Raising Hope to be canceled though. I am surprised it has lasted three seasons considering it is on FOX.

    Could not get into Witney at all. Watched 4 episodes before I stopped watching. In fact I was surprised it survived it's freshman year......

    I couldn't get into Whitney either. Thought it was terrible. I'd take Raising Hope, Modern Family, HIMYM, 30 Rock, Community, Up All Night, New Girl, Parks and Rec, and Happy Endings all over Whitney any day.

    To each his/her own. That's why there are 200+ channels out there. Though I must say, the networks seem to be giving shows a little more time than usual this year. WIth just two cancellations so far, shows aren't being axed right out of the gate if they don't perform.

    I also like Big Bang Theory and Raising Hope.

    One conventional sitcom (sans laugh track) that I haven't seen mentioned though that is a cute slice of middle-american life:

    The Middle (ABC)

    The cast is outstanding. And although it's not a regular laugh riot, it's quirky enough without forcing its quirkiness. I also like that they've been mostly kind in representing my home state...

    Hmmm, I must have watched something else called Whitney last year then. Eye candy? eh, she's alright... Intelligent, witty and stars who are solid comic actors? That's not the show I saw...

    LOL, you should be a comedy writer yourself... Whitney is FAR from the best. If it were the best it wouldn't have been held in waiting and would have premiered with all the other shows.

    Oh let's see...
    Raising Hope
    The Big Bang Theory
    2 Broke Girls (oddly enough created by Whitney and better than her own show)
    Modern Family
    New Girl
    Suburgatory
    Happy Endings
    Don't Trust the B**** in Apartment 23

    Need more??

    Raising Hope is in no danger of cancellation.

    That is good news I always presume it will be canceled since FOX cancels everything I like, but since it made it this far they maybe keeping it to get into syndication.
