    It's been stated by a few sources that Swingtown is on CBS' fall schedule. Of course, nothing is offical until the Upfronts are released. Right now, Travis Yanan (an Entertainment insider) has stated it will air Sundays at 10:00 PM.

    when i heard that Jack Davenport (Coupling, Pirates of the Caribbean) would be in it, it got my attention. but he'll have an american accent, so who knows if he'll be as much fun to watch. (& he's got the bad 70's hair, lol)

    but the real question is if it'll b good. Hoping, for jack's sake, that it is.

    Judging from the date of the OP, I think they're referencing the first season being picked up. As much as I hate to say it out loud--er, type it out loud?--I don't think we'll be seeing a second season for Swingtown. I'm trying to look at it as a longish summer mini-series. I'm grateful CBS aired it at this time of year which, even with not so stellar ratings, lessened its chances of getting yanked off the air before all the episodes were broadcast. I've really enjoyed this programme and it has been perfect summer viewing especially with the episodes taking place over the summer months. I'll be sad when it's over and I hope there won't be too much of a cliffhanger-y type ending--just a sort of life-goes-on conclusion would be fine with me.

    I loved this show. And I don't mind waiting until the spring for season 2. It was good having an original show throughout the summer.

    love the show, but i think it will do better and get a better audience on cable than primetime.

    Well I don't think that is valid since it was posted in 2007
