NBC May Cancel 'My Name Is Earl' and FOX Pick It Up

'My Name Is Earl' is not high in ratings and therefore NBC is reportedly considering to yank out the show to save cost.


NBC May Cancel 'My Name Is Earl' and FOX Pick It Up
See larger image

"My Name is Earl" may be in the middle of running its fourth season on NBC but it may be its last. Nikki Finke of Deadline Hollywood reported that the network is considering to cancel the series to save cost because it has not exactly been stellar in ratings.

The show however, may not be buried after all, because there is a possibility that it will be picked up by FOX. The entertainment president of FOX, Kevin Reilly, allegedly is developing the show to be under the new roof because the network is lacking in its comedy show. Reilly was originally in NBC before moving to FOX.

There has been no statement released from both NBC and FOX regarding this. "My Name is Earl" which is about the titular character making amends to hinder karma, is taking a break in its fourth season to be back on April 16.

Why do you knuckleheads think that Republicans have anything to do with the canceling of this show. I am a Republican and I love this show. Further proof that liberalism is a brain defect.I would have to assume that anyone who made those comments was not over the age of 25. Grow up.

So... when are we going to know if "My Name is Earl" is going to continue on another network. I need to know this... I can't believe they've canceled. Man... that was a bonehead move right about there.

It is this exact fucking reason that makes me pray to a god that I don't even believe in to really end the world in 2012. My Name Is Earl was one of the greatest shows ever made and had a lot of staying power and it got dropped. What the fuck America. This show had everything, absoulutly everything anyone could ever want in a show. It had that positive meaning to it that made people that watched it want to do better, it had comedy, it had sad parts, it had parts that made made you think, it had hot girls, dumb funny guys, trailer parks, action, trailer park acion, just everything about it was great and it got cancelled... well fuck, fuck america fuck the world 2012 hurry up this world isnt working and we dont deserve it anyways.

My Name is Earl is one of my favorite shows on television why did they cancel it. I already know Fox wont pick it up because Fox is filled with nothing but asshole republicans who consider such shows as anti american somehow. Why do these republican tv execs have to have such close minds when it comes to alternative views?

Fox will never pick up this show even though its fucking awesome. The reason is that there all a bunch of republican butt fuckers like Faustino who only want to see shit shows like leave it to beaver so they can fantasize about molesting some young supple boy.

My name is earl is the best show why the fuck have they cancelled it. It sounds like a bunch of republican assholes have made another choice for us normal people again.

Lol. This is the first time I've ever read an online arguement and agreed with the left-oriented folk more than the right. This show is amazing. Some of you need to learn how to spell and turn off capslock. Forever88, be careful making fun of us on the right with regards to our intelligence if you aren't even going to be able to use the correct form of a word multiple times in a single post. Brush up on your "there, their, and they're" usage you fucking idiot. Anyway, the point is: There are much worse shows out there. And much better deserving of the axe. Earl is quite simply amazing. This show would do very well if kept on the air. Maybe we can all watch a ton of the reruns and buy the DVDs and we'll get lucky and pull a family guy.

I cant believe my name is earl has been cancelled the show was freaking funny. And to knob who goes by Faustino I agree with forever88. You republicans are all brain washed fools who tow the party line to such as an extent that normal people can not believe. If I were you I would'nt speak so highly of your intelligence with such things as articling as your proof that forever88 lacks intelligence when your party goes against such things as the public option, free speach, the right to marry whomever you want man or women......YOU DIMWIT!

LOLOLOL....Dont get your panties in a bunch Faustino, sounds like you missed your daily Tea Bagging event. Yes I do believe that those on the right like you are completely lacking in independent thought. But I was glad to read that you like My Name is Earl, because it shows that there maybe some hope for you brain dead mother fuckers after all.

Simply put, politics aside, this show is GREAT!!!!! Holy crap, me and my boyfriend love this show and watch reruns every day. Really!, it makes us happy and laugh despite all the stuff going on in our lives (laid off from work etc).... It literally cheers us up from all of the stress!

In addition robert in va, your comment that laughter in the background should be brought back just speaks to level of brain washing you republicans enjoy. That back ground laughter is designed to make the tv audience laugh along with the audience despite the fact that a lame joke was just said. You people basically have no mind of your own except that which the GOP gives you. My name is earl is awesome.

My Name Is Earl is an awesome show. There was no reason not to continue the series. If there only motivation was republican nut jobs like robert in va then they have to realize that they are too busy watching Fox N Friends, and Glen Beck where they obtain there braining washing from. The majority of tv watchers are those that like shows like My Name is Earl.

The post from "Not earl" is meaningless considering the fact that he is obviously a elderly person who spends his time watching the Andy Griffith show. So why the hell would anyone listen to what some old fuck would say. NBC should listen to those who actually watch the show instead of old bastards like "Not Earl". Oh yeah this includes stuck up women who think they are better then men and watch reruns of nancy grace or the view, or think that sarah palin is a great politician. These people are complete morons. Why the fuck must corporate america pander to these half wits. There collective IQ doesnt amount to that of a chipmunk. The true viewers who need an escape from such dumbasses should be the ones that NBC and corporate america should listen to because we are the ones who buy there merchandise (for ourselfs or for our selfish girlfriends/wifes) watch there shows and control the remote!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Name is Earl was the best thing on NBC. Now it really sucks. I have not watched NBC since they cancelled the show. Everything now on their Thrusday night all has the same type of humor and it gets boring quick. My Name is Earl was refreshing and so fun to watch. I never laughed so hard watching a show on T.V. I really hope that someone picks up the show. I hate NBC now. Why would you cancel the best thing you had on your network. You are a bunch of dumbasses.

I just learned "Earl" was canceled--WTF? This truly was one of the funniest shows in recent TV scheduling....a true laugh-out-loud show, with absurdity, strong characters, and a real sense of heart. The "Andy Griffith Show" may be the last successful blend of these elements. If I see another show about doctors, nurses, cops, or lawyers, I think I will scream!

WHAT YOU (DON'T) KNOW ABOUT THE CREATOR OF MY NAME IS EARL Posted Jan 23rd 2006 4:03PM by Adam Finley Filed under: Other Comedy Shows, NBC, Talent, My Name Is Earl Anyone with an eye for detail knows that the Internet Movie Database isn't always accurate in its bio or trivia sections. This isn't so much the fault of the site as it the fault of people who submit information, but in the case of My Name is Earl creator Gregory Thomas Garcia, he has only himself to blame. It seems that Garcia actually submitted some information about himself for his IMDb page which stated he was the grandson of Cantinflas, a Mexican comedian who passed away over ten years ago. The thing is, it's not true. Garcia was just having a bit of fun, but that little tidbit has made it's way into a few news stories about him. I've always found the truth to be overrated, anyway.

GREG GARCIA ADMITS Greg Garcia: Yeah. I go on to TelevisionWithoutPity. Weíve done some stuff where weíve like planted fake people on TelevisonWithoutPity and then have them be characters on our show and blow everybodyís mind on the blog. But I go on there because itís like instant feedback. Itís hard not to. Ė I canít remember the exact specific, but I do remember one time reading something on there and thinking, ďOh, man. Thatís a good idea.Ē And then, like in the room I was really hesitant to do it, because I was like - I felt like I was cheating. Like it was this small little thing, but it was just some small little thing someone mentioned. I felt like I was cheating and then I was like, screw it. Itís not cheating. Itís funny. So I think we ended up doing it, but I donít remember the specifics.

Best comedy on TV. Hands down. It would be a huge mistake to cancel such a well written, well acted show. I wish the networks would figure out noone is watching reality tv, or all the cop and law dramas. Earl is a truly hilarious show and one of the only reasons I've found to watch tv...and sit through the commercials! NBC or Fox, I hope you are hearing your viewers.

I only watch one current show and that is "My Name Is Earl". It is the only show I have seen in a long time that consistently makes me laugh out loud. It is the only show I go out of my way to watch. The rest of the time I just watch classic tv shows on DVD and occasionly Nova on PBS. NBC kept changing the time slot until they finally pissed me off. I'd get in the habit of going to watch the show at a particular time, and then they would change the time slot. A few weeks later they would do it again. What the hell is wrong with them? Now I watch My Name is Earl over the Internet, because I don't have to figure out what time slot those knuckleheads at NBC have moved it to this week. Dear FOX. Please save "My Name Is Earl". Once you find a time slot for it keep it there.

maybe My Name Is Earl got cancelled because NBC & 20TH Century Fox know now after all the evidence that was provided by Mark Gableís world renown lawyers, that garcia really did rip off Mark Gable's script Karma. And NBC & 20TH Century Fox are embarrassed to be associated with garcia. cause greg is full of bleep. ask greg to explain Karma by Mark Gable. Mark Gable wrote My name is Earl, read the lawsuit. what kind of man accepts an award for work he didnít create? pats on the back, limoís, champagne, hamptons mansions, red carpet events and lunch at the ivy mean everything to hacks like greg garcia. itís really tragic when the only way a man can get a hit and win an award is by pretending someone elseís work is their own. writer? Toni morrison is a writer. greg garcia is a hack and he should step up and return Mark Gableís work.

Recently, the Denver Post ran an article about how TV in general is in trouble with ratings. What a surprise - the networks keep moving shows to new slots all the time, they have humongous gaps between the air dates of original episodes, and they keep canceling truly interesting and creative shows. No wonder ratings aren't what the networks want, or so they claim. In their places, we get shows that are cheap to produce and reality shows - which are often the same thing. Other than "American Idol" I don't know *anybody* who watches *any* reality TV shows - I can't imagine how some of them have such good ratings. In fact, I think ratings are BS, with numbers that are deliberately false simply to give the networks a basis to keep trotting out a steady stream of cheap, easy to make GARBAGE..."My Name Is Earl" might just suffer the fate of so many *really* good TV shows recently, so we can get another cheap, non-scripted piece of depraved trash - and that is too bad....one more thing - who in the name of God gets the boxes to record the Nielsen numbers??? Give one to me and I'll show them what is good TV and what should be flushed down the nearest toilet. Thank You.
