I feel a little bad about all my recent jabs at John Stamos and his tenous relationship with Disney. I am a fan of his show and given some work it has the potiential to be a very funny show...it just needs more of a Sex in the City vibe for men.

ABC's last-minute reprieve for Jake, which will return for 13 episodes in midseason, has thrown a wrench into plans at rival networks NBC and WB.
Star John Stamos was expected to join the cast of NBC's ER. And co-star Wendie Malick was set for a pivotal role as a life coach in WB's Modern Men, the first comedy from producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Malick's role will be recast.
