    • I believe they changed the name to Surviving Jack and it will air on Fox this winter or spring.

      • Not the case. Like Father was a pilot in 2012 with Colin Ferguson. Surviving Jack is an upcoming show with Christopher Meloni. For now, Like Father is one of 3 Bill Lawrence pilots that didn’t make it, but knowing Bill he’ll probably bring it back someday.

  • I Love Lucy special! Woohoo! I just recently found out a ton of episodes are on hulu and have been marathoning them every night. Nothing like the classics.

  • Cougar Town, Undateable, Surviving Jack, and Ground Floor. Bill is as prolific as Chuck Lorre.

  • I’m excited for anything Lucy, but the colorizations I’ve seen are really awful. Hopefully the technology has improved in the last few years. Still, I’m SO all-in!
