ABC Renews “According to Jim”

ABC has decided to renew its long-running sitcom, giving the series a seventh season in primetime.  After leaving it off its 2007/2008 schedule at the upfronts, ABC has ordered 18 episodes of the show, which will now likely be its last.

A premiere data and time slot are still to be determined.

“For six years, it’s been a joy being part of the ABC and Touchstone families and part of each and every family who have been loyal viewers of our show every week,” star and executive producer Jim Belushi says. “This season will top all the rest. I’m thrilled to continue this seventh season with these extended families.”

According to Jim will be the only multi-camera comedy on their schedule next season.  It’ll be joined by newcomers (all single-camera): Samantha Who? (originally titled Sam I Am), Cavemen, Carpoolers and Miss/Guided (midseason) as well as returning comedy Notes from the Underbelly.

The series is the longest running scripted series on ABC, and tied with Scrubs as the second longest running comedy in primetime (both are behind The CW’s Girlfriends, which enters its eighth season next year).

  • A not so “Despeate Housewife”

    It is a shame that this may be the last seaon for “According to Jim” . I think networks are making a big mistake by taking family shows like this off the air. I miss good shows, funny shows, it is very rare to find a show that can make me laugh like this one does. As a mother of a 18 month old I can relate to these people, unlike the people on “Notes from the Underbelly”. I just had a baby and I can not relate to this show at all. And as far as calling it a comedy…far from it ABC far from it. (go ahead and save yourself some money and cancel this show along with Cavemen, some things are better left as comercials because they are only funny for about 30 seconds!!!! Hello!!!!) What happend to funny family entertainment??? I guess I will have to buy it on DVD since all that seems to be on anymor is crap or reality. I don’t know about you but I watch television to escape reality for a while. That seems to be getting harder and harder to do. I really hate reading but that even seems to be an option at this point..
