Another Network to Pick Up "King of the Hill"

Posted: November 4th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Another Network to Pick Up "King of the Hill"Submit Comment
We recently reported that "King of Hill" has been cancelled, but apparently that's not 100% correct. At least one network has already expressed interest in the show, which was recently kicked out by Fox.

The suitor is believed to be ABC, as "King of the Hill" would make a strong companion to the network's upcoming animated comedy "The Goode Family," which comes from "King of the Hill" executive producers Mike Judge, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky.

A "King of the Hill" pickup would give ABC a well-known franchise to bolster the chances for "Goode Family." It's a de facto network scheduling rule, learned at Fox through years of trial and error, that animated half-hours fit best with other animated half-hours.

Fox's decision not to order any new episodes of "King of the Hill," meanwhile, came just three days before the animated comedy posted its best ratings in a year, averaging a 4.3 rating/10 share in adults 18-49 on Sunday night.

Still, network insiders said Fox won't likely change its mind on the cancellation. Net executives are looking to freshen up their animated stable, and after 260 episodes, they believed "King of the Hill" was ready for retirement.

Other potential homes for the toon include Comedy Central, FX and Cartoon Network. But the show, which would be entering its 14th season, is believed to be too expensive for a cable network at this point in its run.

Given the lengthy lead time on animated projects, the 14th season of "King" probably wouldn't be available to ABC until late 2009 or early 2010.

Okay- if you're going to bring back the show- do everyone a favor and kill off Peggy somehow. Or rewrite her so she's not so one dimensionally and annoying naive and dense. You don't just want to smack her- you want to grease her face with the tires of a 4x4.
