Sean Saves the World October 31

NBC has ordered four additional scripts for freshman comedy Sean Saves the World, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

  • The 47th

    This is a sign that NBC really has NOTHING to replace it, right?

  • Oliver

    I thought they already announced this when they cancelled Welcome to the Family.

  • Dan

    Yeah, I thought Sean Saves the World got additional scripts already. NBC just give it additional episodes or a full season. We all know that the show isn’t going to be cancelled until May.

  • Dan

    So is that 8 additional scripts total or did NBC just forget to place the order in when they cancelled Ironside and Welcome to the Family?


    I also thought that SSTW had the 4 additional, so I second Dan’s “is that 8 additional scripts total.”

    I love Sean Hayes, but why? The show is a complete snooze fest and the ratings are horrible to boot. I was expecting so much more from this show.

  • RyanCanada

    this show is soo funny.

  • Dan

    NBC may as well just give it a full season. They only have About a Boy, Growing Up Fisher and Undateable for midseason. If they want to timeshare it with Undateable, than a 17 episode season would do that trick. Although Undateable would get destroyed in that 9PM Thursday slot.

    It’ll be interesting to see how the Thursday NBC comedies do after the special airing of The Voice this week. (the Go On effect)

  • Mike

    The show is meh, but super talented cast, especially with Thomas Lennon and Linda Lavin. I wish it well.

  • Daniel

    They should have never cancelled Outsourced. Fools!!

  • DenverDean

    I guess Sean Hayes whining that the problem isn’t his show, but that NBC has problems brining in viewers. Best bingo excuse ever. SH is not star material. He got a lucky supporting role on a hit show and has not evolved one bit.

  • Ken

    The best part of SSTW is Megan Hilty as his slutty coworker/friend. She’s the only thing funny in the whole show, although his character’s daughter has her moments. I will not miss it when it gets cancelled – just hope Hilty finds work on another network for a change.

  • Candy Clouds

    What’s this “ordering scripts” stuff even mean? Either I’ve never paid attention in the past or this is something new the networks are doing this season.

    @Daniel – “They should have never cancelled Outsourced. Fools!!”

    You are the only one who cared.

    And the only one who remembers this show.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    I really loved Outsourced! ;-) :-)


  • Connman

    The show probably won’t be canceled per se, but just not mentioned again after the end of this season – which will be about a season too late for when it should have been canceled, IMHO!

  • David

    I loved Outsourced too. The show got funnier as the season went on, but most people wrote it off early. I’m enjoying the new Sean Hayes show, too. I thought last Thursday’s episode was hysterical.

  • milo

    Liked outsourced a lot too. Much worse shows have made it to a second season.

  • k:Alex

    Why, it does better as MJ Fox Show, by the fact it’s steady (really low, ready for cancellation), but it doesn’t shrink all the time.
    And they have only 3 comedies left, so Undateble is the only one who could replace something on Thursday.

    When you are that desperate, this is a logical choice.
