Laughs die on Fox

Three comedies won’t be returning to the Fox schedule this fall: “Arrested Development,” “Malcolm in the Middle” and “That ’70s Show.”

The eighth season of “That ’70s Show” ends on May 18, but no word yet as to whether Ashton Kutcher or Topher Grace will return to send off their old show.

And “Malcolm in the Middle” signs off on May 14.

As previously noted, the critical darling “Arrested Development” will have its final airing on Feb. 10 _ opposite the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics.

Gee. Thanks Fox.

    First of all, I think Susan Young is an awesome TV writer. I grew up in Livermore and now live in Modesto and still check in with her columns.
    Second of all, “Arrested Development” is the best show on TV. It’s CRIMINAL that Fox is canceling the show. Some other network will pick it up and have a HUGE success and the last laugh.
