Fox ending Malcolm, That '70s Show in May

Fox's veteran comedy Malcolm in the Middle will end its seven-season run May 14, while That '70s Show, now in its eighth season, will bow out four days later, the network said Tuesday.

For the homestretch, Malcolm will return to Sundays beginning January 29, opening the night at 7:00 p.m., a slot generally occupied by cartoon reruns.

Meanwhile, Fox is in conversations with former That '70s Show stars Ashton Kutcher and Topher Grace to return for the show's finale, Fox entertainment president Peter Liguori said during the network's portion of the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

While the end for Malcolm and That '70s Show comes after long, successful runs, the untimely exit of the network's Emmy-winning but low-rated comedy Arrested Development after three seasons--two of them abbreviated--brought up a lot of questions.

Although the network touts airing the two-hour block of the ...

TV.com talks to Jane Kaczmarek

Jane Kaczmarek has traded in bratty kids for a bratty man-child.

Kaczmarek spent six years playing lovably cranky mom Lois on the Fox comedy Malcolm in the Middle. Now, she is playing the ex-wife of TV rascal Ted Danson on the ABC comedy hit Help Me Help You. The sitcom stars Danson as a neurotic psychiatrist who is constantly trying to get back together with his estranged ex.

TV.com caught up with Kaczmarek and chatted with her about her helping us help ourselves.

TV.com: It looks like you are having a lot of fun on the new show.

Jane Kaczmarek Oh yeah, I am enjoying it because the hours are much more conducive to being a mom [than Malcolm's]. Plus, they make me look so nice after running around in [Malcolm mom] Lois' clothes! They give me good makeup and nice lighting. It's great!

Created and executive-produced by Emmy Award-winning writer Linwood Boomer, this inventive half-hour series is seen through the eyes of MALCOLM (Frankie Muniz), a regular high school kid trying to navigate his way through life despite the various obstacles thrown in his way – a complete misunderstanding of girls, the constant burden of masterminding plans to get himself and his brothers into or out of trouble, and a miserable job at the Lucky Aide… not to mention a severe case of teen angst. Although Malcolm has a genius IQ, he can't seem to make sense of the opposite sex, much less his embarrassing family. Lois (Jane Kaczmarek) is the outspoken, opinionated mom, who still manages to rule the roost even though her boys are growing wise to her crafty ways. Hal (Bryan Cranston), a dad who is just a bumbling, big kid at heart, often finds himself creating more chaos than his five boys combined. Reese (Justin Berfield) has mastered the art of a perfect blank stare, and makes up for his lack of intelligence with deviance. Francis (Christopher Masterson), Malcolm's oldest and favorite brother, is willing to move from Alabama to Alaska to New Mexico – as long as its keeps him from moving back home. Dewey (Erik Per Sullivan), no longer the youngest, has learned his tricks from the best and often pulls the wool right over his brothers' eyes. And then there's Jamie, the newest member … and family scapegoat. Timeslot History on Fox and Global January 2000 - July 2002 .... Sundays, 8:30pm August 2002 - October 2004 ....
