"Him and Us" officially not picked up: The Official Anthony Head Site has confirmed that the ABC comedy pilot 'Him and Us' has not been picked up.

sigh!!!!!
Darn! Well, I hope maybe another network might be wiser than ABC. :-(
Hopefully he will have time now to appear on Doctor Who season three ;-)
They might need someone to play the Master or something...?
Did anybody else know Tony is in the film "Imagine Me And You"? I had no idea. What's it like, USers?
This decision really puzzles me cause I got the impression there was a fair bit of buzz about it. The pilot mustn't have impressed the execs I guess.
Well, as somebody on Buffistas said yesterday, the shows with the least buzz seem to have been picked up again.
argggh!! i was REALLY looking forward to seeing him as an aging rock star!!
Just a shame. I can't think more an accredit actor than Tony Head.
Was Tony the only MAJOR Buffyverse star with a pilot for next season?

Last year we had new shows for David,Alyson,Nick and Christian and a few other alumni.

I sort of lost track of who had pilots that went into development for series contention,as in pilots that were filmed.



The networks do a lot of strange things.There was all this buzz on the Aquaman pilot that is now pretty much dead.It sounds sort of like what happened with the Dark Shadows and Lost In Space pilot situation with The WB.They were high on it for while and then lost interest when they saw the pilot.And it looks like The CW is bringing back 7th Heaven for another season of 13 episodes after The WB canceled it and the show aired it's series finale last Monday.A series finale that was heavily promoted as the final episode.

7th Heaven's,Countdown To Good Bye? Apparently not anymore.

The industry is calling this a big shocking move by The CW network.
"The industry is calling this a big shocking move by The CW network."

Yeah, shocking. (yawn)

What a shame. This really seemed like it could be interesting.
Hey Buffyfanic (neat name). Hint of advice. May not want to being up '7th Heaven'. You may be buried under tons of fruits and various meats. :)
Shame, I was unsure whether wanting to see Tony in something would have made me watch someting with Kim Cattrall in it, but still a shame for everyone involved. Probably would have watched the pilot just to see what it was like (had no real interest in Kitchen Confidential before it started and watched the pilot solely 'cos Nick was in it, and that was excellent).

Hope Tony finds work soon, I'd love to see him back on Doctor Who.

And 7th Heaven needs to go to hell. And it had gone there, it had died, and they go and bring it back. ARGH! Not to bothered about anything else on TheCW but if Veronica Mars doesn't get picked up this Thursday I won't be best pleased. (And my mother has been warned that should this happen, her 7th Heaven DVDs will be going on the fire, I've been meaning to do that for a while.)

I wouldn't watch the show even if your paid me.lol

Which is why this news sort of makes my stomach turn.Angel gets canceled and yet 7th Heaven goes on for 10 season and now gets resurrected for another season on the new network with a miraculous save.

The first thought that passed by in my mind was,why couldn't something like this had happen for Angel?

This was the type of thing that was hoped for with the Save Angel campaign and it's 7th Heaven that gets the miracle save two years later with no fan help needed either.

Well that seems to be a fear now.

VERONICA Squeezed Out??
CW Grabs 7TH HEAVEN 11.X !!
I am – Hercules!!
“7th Heaven,” billed for months as celebrating its final season (its much publicized “series finale” aired Monday), appears not to be finished after all!
The series, long one of the most popular on The WB, is now expected to be part of the CW autumn schedule to be announced next Thursday.
Will its last-minute renewal squeeze critically acclaimed (but lower-rated) “Veronica Mars” off The CW's crowded schedule?

According to Mediaweek (see below), 7th Heaven is coming back for a 13th season.

My sources at the CW tell me this would only happen if they were "desperate," so I'm guessing their pilots didn't turn out as well as expected.

I'm also told regarding Veronica Mars that A) Dawn Ostroff is "the only one who wants it to come back and is fighting hard for it" but B) Kristen Bell tells me she's pretty sure she'll be in New York next week for the upfronts ... So ... I CHOOSE TO BELIEVE that Veronica Mars WILL come back!

If 7th Heaven returns and not VM, I might DIE.


Mediaweek says: 7th Heaven, the longest-running family drama in television history, in a surprising move, will return for its 11th season on the new CW network this
fall. Mediaweek has learned that a deal has been reached to bring the show back for at least 13 episodes. CW officials refused comment.



Next we'll be hearing Charmed is coming back.'eye roll'
The time will come when you need to make up a notion. Which will it be?
Rats.

I was really looking forward to this :(
Those of you who are savvy in TV ways...realistically, is there a chance of another network picking this up? Or is it a case of once you're dead, you're dead?
cronopio, it happens, but it is very rare. It isn't likely for this show.
That's really too bad, I was looking forward to seeing it.
Crap, it was one of the few shows I was excited about seeing next year.
I just got addicted to Veronica Mars this season, and if it gets the axe I don't know if I'll be able to open my heart to and more new shows. All the ones I love die horrible, untimely deaths.
Serefina716, you're not alone.

We should start a support group or something.

And, what's the 716 mean? 7/16 is my birthday, so... you know, had to ask.
Serafina716, perhaps we should start a big fan campaign to keep all the shows we secretly hate. That ought to do it. [/sarcasm mode]
I don't know about secret, my hatred for 7th Heaven is pretty loud and obvious. And Zeppo, the 716 was my dorm room # at the time I set up this account. So, it means... absolutely nothing.
It's gotta mean something, like the cheese man..
She wears 716, but it doesn't wear her?
