I had seen several places that the Nathan Lane sitcom Charlie Lawrence had been yanked from the schedule, but it took the gay news site The Advocate of all places to tell me that the same horrid fate had befallen Baby Bob!
That show defined the limits of the sitcom. Admittedly, it was mainly defining the lower limits, but still…
It’s a tragic loss. It’s not so much the loss of this season that bothers me as the loss of future seasons. Imagine Baby Bob in it’s tenth year, when they have to somehow build the series around the conceit of a talking ten year old. Now that would be comedy! Particularly since there would still have to be someone off-screen providing his voice!
Ah, Baby Bob, we never truly got to know ye.
