This was reported Friday, but Variety didn't pick it up until today, which means I didn't see it until today:

    NBC’s ‘Next Caller’ Not Going Forward

    By NELLIE ANDREEVA | Friday October 12, 2012 @ 5:06pm PDT

    EXCLUSIVE: NBC has pulled the plug on midseason comedy series Next Caller. The network in May had given the Dane Cook-starring project a six-episode order. After filming four of them, I hear network brass had decided that creatively the series was not going in the direction they had hoped for. Production on the series, produced by Lionsgate TV and Universal TV, has stopped, and the produced episodes won’t air. Created and executive produced by Stephen Falk, Next Caller stars Cook as a foul-mouthed satellite radio DJ forced to share the mic with a chipper NPR feminist (Collette Wolfe). Jeffrey Tambor, Joy Osmanski and Wolé Parks co-star. NBC recently gave two of its freshman comedy series, Go On and The New Normal, full-season pickups, while fellow freshmen Guys With Kids and especially Animal Practice, have been struggling. The network has two other comedy series on tap for midseason, 1600 Penn and Save Me.
This is just about the ONLY thing that would make me want to watch this show...so NOW, I'm *desperate* to see these four episodes.

It just makes me sad when things aren't given a chance to flesh out by the networks. I'm not a fan of Dane Cook's comedy, but that wouldn't stop me from trying out a sitcom he was involved in.

Especially with comedies, sometimes they take a while to hit a good stride.

I really like the fact that more things are coming out on cable, and even places like Netflix, as some of these shows get a chance to grow a bit.

Isn't a Dane Cook sitcom at least three years late anyway? Didn't his popularity peak back in 06/07?

Hopefully he can return to his role as Danno's crooked brother on Hawaii Five-0. That was a good character.

It didn't peak, it hilled. Dane Cook is a slightly edgier Jamie Kennedy.

I guess the first four episodes were just like Louie.

I was never a big fan of Jerry Seinfeld's comedy until I started watching his show around the time of the California trip where Kramer was accused of murder (which TBS is showing this week coincidentally), then his act sort of "clicked" with me and I became a fan of his stand up too.

Not saying the same would happen for me with Dane Cook (nothing against him, but not a fan), but I can definitely see your point and the premise of the show does sound better to me than some of the sitcoms that did make it to the network schedules this fall. Oh well.

Yep, camera doesn't move. But........neither does the plot. The whole movie is basically Jeremy Renner's quest to get some drugs to stop him from going stoopid.
