In this day and age of television, every actor gets his or her shot at a comeback. Even Bob Saget. Yes, we mean Danny Tanner. Thankfully, Bob won’t be returning to host a redux of America’s Funniest Home Videos. But he is returning to primetime. According to Variety, Saget is in talks to star in Saving Suburbia, originally scheduled as part of the CW lineup, but now has no actual home.
The show was slated to start in March, with the production already shooting thirteen episodes. Only problem is, they don’t quite have a network that wants them yet! ABC is in talks to save the show (and Saget’s career).
Network boss Stephen McPherson says of adding it to their lineup, "A lot of the comedies on the air are kind of observational, and I like a lot of them, but I do think there is missing when the traditional sitcom is almost nowhere on the air. I would like to see us get back to programming, you know, a contemporary version of what we did with Roseanne and Home Improvement. I think there is a real place for that."
Unfortunately, if ABC is looking to rev up their sitcom lineup, Bob Saget is the last person who comes to our minds. Even though we loved him as Danny in Full House, he was the most boring character. Sadly, ABC should just stick to reality shows if they want to keep things interesting.
