Three Words : Breaking In lives!

Three Words : Breaking In lives!

Update! The struggling but popular Christian Slater sitcom “Breaking In” may have been saved by the axe. Deadline reports today that ”The options on the series’ actors have been picked up until Nov. 15. And, in a rare move, I hear the network, Fox, has pitched in, splitting the cost of the option extension with producing studio Sony Pictures TV. Fox’s decision to cancel the Christian Slater-starring comedy after a brief midseason run was one of the biggest surprises this past upfront season.”

Excuse me while I do a cartwheel, folks?

Previously…

“Human Target”, I get, it just didn’t rate but “Breaking In”? A show that’s reported to be Fox’s highest-viewed new comedy series of 2011 (and, for that matter, 2010 and 2009)!? Now that’s weirder than Martha Plimpton planting a kiss on Corey Feldman at the end of “The Goonies”.

“Human Target”, starring Mark Valley as an Ethan Hunt-esque action hero, just completed it’s soft-rating second season. Nobody expected it would be blessed with a third.

“Breaking In”, starring Christian Slater as the head of a security firm, has been building upon it’s audience each and every week – garnering great numbers for it’s “Goonies 2″ themed episode a week ago.

More news from the upfronts as it comes in (but I hear “17th Precinct” is definitely dead at NBC so we can stop chanting…sadly).
