Fox has canceled Prison Break, its "OK, we just broke out of the prison. Now what? Oh, what the hell, let's go back in" serial. Fox president Kevin Reilly's justification is hilariously blunt.
"The show is just played out," he said today at TCA. Thus, the network plans to shunt the show's final episodes to Friday nights in April, where it can extend one clammy, tattooed hand and attempt to take down the beleaguered Dollhouse with it. But, there is some good news: the same month will see Fox finally slot the animated comedy Sit Down, Shut Up from Arrested Development creator Mitchell Hurwitz. It will be airing at 8:30 on Sundays, immediately preceding Family Guy. Comedy whiplash!
