NBC Pulls Best Friends Forever From Its Schedule

  • 19comments

Best friends forever, my ass! NBC has totally unfriended the midseason comedy Best Friends Forever, pulling it from the schedule after just four episodes. The sitcom only filmed six episodes in the first place, and NBC has not announced if or when it will air the remaining two episodes. So don't get your hopes up for a magical renewal, because the show is as good as canceled.

The 8:30pm Wednesday-night slot will now go to a new episode of Betty White's Off Their Rockers, which also airs at 8pm. Ouch! Being replaced by an old-person's prank show. Probably not an ideal way to go out.

Like Bent, Best Friends Forever never really stood a chance thanks to wacky scheduling and a seemingly indifferent attitude from the network. Maybe this is the result of Comcast's slow takeover of NBC, maybe it's just poor planning. Who knows?

Best Friends Forever: Will you miss it? Did you even know it was on?
