Maybe! According to Vulture buddy Nikki Finke, NBC is currently deciding whether to cancel the low-rated, increasingly expensive My Name Is Earl, and Twentieth Century Fox TV, which produces the show, is balking at the reduced fee they're being offered for more episodes. So Fox Broadcasting Company president Kevin Reilly is purportedly considering moving Earl to his own network. No word on what Ben Silverman might replace it with (infomercials, one assumes). [DHD]
