Sitcoms renewed

Good news for fans of quality shows – and for TV stations looking for off-network sitcoms in 2009. NBC has renewed My Name Is Earl and The Office (and Law & Order: SUV), and the CW has renewed Everybody Hates Chris for next season -all show should be available for off-network syndication in 2009, a year after there will be NO off-network sitcoms launched – the first time in recent memory that has happened.
