Well, this should feel like a broken-record situation for CBS and “Super Clyde.” Years after this aspiring-superhero comedy from Greg Garcia was passed on by the network, The Hollywood Reporter is now claiming that it has happened all over again.
Unfortunately, we cannot really say that we are too shocked by this. CBS is trying to move more towards a younger demographic, but this is a show that may still be too young for the network. We also wonder if this is something a little too high-concept for them. It was first developed back again with Rupert Grint of “Harry Potter” fame as the star of the show, and it had been redeveloped this time around with Charlie McDermott of “The Middle” fame. With this show not being picked up, we do imagine that McDermott may be more available for the future of the ABC comedy.
While “Super Clyde” may not have come to pass, we do at least think for the most part that there will be something more from Garcia on in the future. “My Name Is Earl” remains one of our favorite comedies, and we did enjoy “Raising Hope” back when it was on the air.
So far, his time working CBS has certainly been a little bit all over the place. While “The Millers” began with solid ratings and seemed for the most part to be in the network’s good graces, it was eventually canceled just weeks into its second season, a very rare move for a network to make other than with a new show.
