King of the Hill to ABC? Don't Play Mind Checkers with Me, Man.
On Friday, Fox let it be known that this was the final season for Mike Judge's King of the Hill, the best prime-time cartoon ever set in a fictional Dallas suburb, if that's not too many caveats. (And from the looks of the comments on the earlier item, this scene's high on the list of favorite moments.) Well, Bobby, just hold on there one danged second: Variety now says the show may not be outta propane just yet, as ABC's allegedly considering giving the Hills a new home come next season. Which does make sense, reports the trade, "as King of the Hill would make a strong companion to the net’s upcoming animated comedy The Goode Family, which comes from King of the Hill exec producers Mike Judge, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky." In related news, I had no idea ABC was still a network. --Robert Wilonsky
