News for Hank

What's Hot Today

Kelsey Grammer's big news is that he yanked Hank

On October 14, Kelsey Grammer was telling the media to tune in to his ABC sitcom Hank because the show was getting better and better. More funny, he said. Well, now that Kelsey has accepted the fact that Hank is dead and buried -- except for whatever episodes ABC burns off down the road -- Kelsey's may be singing a different tune. Kelsey pulled the plug on Hank because it wasn't funny. That's according to an interview he did in which he claims that after the Thanksgiving episode, he returned to work and the show was just not getting any laughs. "Honestly, it just wasn't very funny ... We finished and I was like, 'Oh boy, there wasn't a laugh in the house on this one.' And I called the president of Warner Brothers ... and I said, 'Listen, when can we put a bullet in this thing?'" Assuming that the story is accurate, it sounds a lot better than the version in which WB and ABC delivered a pink slip to Kelsey. Although considering Grammer's stature in the business (he'll show you his Emmys), it may be true that he called them before they called him. To Read More Click Here .

Cancellation Buzz: Hank Canceled (Is Anybody Surprised?) - Featured

ABC is getting down to business this week - first ordering more episodes of The Forgotten , then canceling Eastwick (though they pledge to complete the 13 episode order and air the rest of those episodes) and now - they have opted to cancel Kelsey Grammar's Hank . Hank was the only comedy out of ABC's Wednesday 2-hour comedy block (including The Middle , Modern Family and Cougar Town ) that had not already received a full season order. The show has filmed 10 episodes and aired 5 to date. However, unlike with Eastwick , ABC has no plans to air any additional episodes. Repeats and holiday specials will air in the timeslot throughout the rest of this year. Does anybody care about this cancellation? Source

ABC Remembers Forgotten

Warner Bros. TV got good news and bad news from ABC on Monday . Frosh detective drama The Forgotten (TV) earned a five-episode pickup, but Eastwick is getting the ax. Separately, the Alphabet has nixed plans to air the five-episode series Let's Dance , beginning Nov. 23.

"Forgotten" and "Eastwick" have both had tough starts in the Tuesday and Wednesday 10 o'clock timeslots, respectively. "Forgotten" stars Christian Slater and hails from the Bruckheimer Television shop. "Eastwick" was based on the pic and novel "Witches of Eastwick." Warner Bros. TV is still awaiting word from the net on its Kelsey Grammer comedy Hank , which is looking like a long shot for a pickup. Source
