Remember when "Sports Night," as it was spiraling into sure cancellation, poked fun at ABC? "Anyone who can't make money off 'Sports Night' should get out of the money-making business," Calvin Trager told Dana Whitaker, in the show's final episode.
Well according to Variety, we're about to see some similar dialogue with Fox's "Arrested Development," which is headed for cancellation unless a network like Showtime or HBO picks it up.
In an upcoming episode called "Save Our Bluths," HBO (the Home Builders Organization) arises as a possible savior for the Bluth Company. When the plan falls through, George Sr. says, "I guess it's Showtime. We'll put on some kind of show at the dinner."
