Belushi's fate undecided, while 'Knights' fade away



Since George Lopez rocked the boat Monday, blasting ABC for dumping his show without giving him a chance to say adios the way he would have liked, we have learned that ABC still does not know what it will do with "According to Jim," the Jim Belushi sitcom that was usually paired with "The George Lopez Show."

ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson announced his official schedule Tuesday, but “Jim” wasn’t on it.

After the news conference, he said of the show, “We’re talking with them right now. We don’t know yet. We are talking to the studio to see if there’s something financially, a deal that would make sense for us.”

One show whose fate has been sealed: "Knights of Prosperity." Although the network “loved” the freshman comedy, and “we were trying to find a place for it” until the bitter end, McPherson said, "Knights" will not be returning next season.

I hope they bring back "According to Jim", it's a wonderful show that never received the credit it deserved. It's actually funny and a pleasure to watch. I hope tonight's episode wasn't the last but if so, it was well done and rather touching. Bring back Jim, ABC!

I knew Knights wouldn't last. I saw about five minutes of an episode, and it was way too stupid.
