Breaking In Uncanceled, Returns in Spring 2012 on Fox; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of August 29, 2011)


We got your back! Fox has renewed the comedy series Breaking In for a 13-episode second season to return to the network's schedule in Spring 2012. The series was canceled in May but now Fox has changed their mind and will bring it back. The sitcom will likely air on Tuesdays in the spring, when Glee goes on a 6 week hiatus and Fox goes to four sitcoms on Tuesday nights. But this is still a long way away, so right now the focus is that the show is returning! The sitcom aired seven episodes this past spring and welcomed guest stars such as Alyssa Milano and Ted McGinley.
Created by Adam F. Goldberg and Seth Gordon, Breaking In is a workplace comedy about a high-tech security firm that takes extreme - and often questionable - measures to sell their protection services. The series centers on a team of uniquely skilled oddball geniuses hand-picked to work for Oz, a manipulative mastermind played by Christian Slater. The series also stars Bret Harrison, Alphonso McAuley and Odette Annable (pictured above).

It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars, so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
