USA Throwing Its Network Hat into the Comedy Ring


USA has picked up a pilot called Paging Dr. Freed, “a comedy about two brothers who take over their father’s medical practice after he suddenly dies.” Along with On We Go (remember, the one where Nathan Lane plays a guy who looks like a second guy who looks like a third guy who looks just like Nathan Lane, or something like that) and the airing of Modern Family repeats starting in fall 2013, the pickup seems to indicate a bigger interest in comedy programming. Huzzah!
