    I will tune in but don’t you mean they will start in January of 2014 since it is already way past January 2013 and I have been watching on CBS not TBS. Someone needs a fact checker.

    Debbie, this post was written and published in December of 2012. Therefore, I did mean January 2013. Please re-read the story again, because I’m not sure you understood the context. Thank you.

    No Debbie. They sold the syndication rights which are playing now on TBS. No new shows will be made after this season.

    Yea, so glad TBS bought it, I hope all the shows are new ones.. Love the entire cast.

  5. Debbie says:

    Sorry, I thought the story meant that TBS bought the rights to make new show’s, like they did when Couger Town was canceled from ABC, they had all new shows of Couger Town over on TBS. Well that’s a bum deal that they canceled it all together. 🙁
