NBC May Be Considering Pulling the Plug on ‘IT’

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that NBC might be pulling the plug on their planned midseason comedy The IT Crowd.

It was a bit of a surprise when the network didn’t place the comedy on their fall schedule, since it meant no new comedy series was introduced on the network’s fall schedule for the first time in 30 years.

    I really hope they keep the show around, the British version is so good and hopefully the American one will be good too.

    Or they could air the British version stateside.

    Yes, please, PLEASE, by all means, air the British version instead! Now I am a full-blooded American, but I don’t even want to think about how badly NBC might butcher IT by trying to “adapt it” (read: “dumb it down”) for an American audience.

    Imagine an attempt to Americanize “Monty Python’s Flying Circus.”

    UK version is too British for U.S. mainstream viewers. Half the jokes wouldn’t be understood.

    I’m skeptical of how good this U.S. adaptation could be, but I’d definitely hope it could be as half as funny as the UK version. Does this mean no new UK episodes because Richard Ayoade (Moss) will be State-side doing the U.S. version?

    “Half the jokes wouldn’t be understood.” ? If you’re a moron, I suppose not. I have watched every episode from both seasons and there are only a few mild references that a quick google would resolve. Not all Americans have the IQ of those that voted for Bush. ;-)
