Tuesday, at ABC’s winter Television Critics Association panel, the network’s head honcho, Stephen McPherson, gave reporters some good news: they have officially picked up Modern Family, Cougar Town and The Middle for second seasons.
He also acknowledged that they were disappointed with Ugly Betty’s performance on Friday nights and they’re hoping it will do better in its new Wed. 10 p.m. time slot. He told reporters, “We still love that show.” Hopefully, that means that it won’t get canceled anytime soon.
Apparently, they feel the same way about Castle and also plan to keep that show, which has struggled as well, around. He added that Heat Wave, the second Nikki Heat book from Richard Castle, is planned for a September 2010 release.
As far as fan faves Scrubs and Better Off Ted, they aren’t dead yet. “I love those shows,” said McPherson. “I did resurrect Scrubs, so I would hope that there’s a potential that that could grow, but I’m not going to lie and say those numbers are working for us.” A decision on the fate of both Scrubs and B.O.T. will be made when the current string of episodes ends later this month. But don’t hold your breath for another season, my guess is, they’re both dead.
