GAME ON...THE SHOW TO BE PITCHED AS AN HOUR DRAMEDY!!

Very exciting news, CW’s The Game may possibly become an hour-long dramedy next season. I actually think this is the best season yet so I'm very happy it might survive the CW cuts. With the CW expected to complete its exit from the half-hour comedy genre at the end of this season, the creator/executive producer of one of the network’s two remaining comedies, “The Game,” is mulling turning it into an hour long series. Mara Brock Akil is expected to pitch the idea to the CW brass this week
A show switching genres is extremely rare. (In 1999, Fox launched the short-lived “Ally,” a half-hour version of David E. Kelley’s hit hour long dramedy “Ally McBeal.”) However, for “Game,” such a transformation would actually make sense creatively. As a hybrid multi/single-camera series with no live audience, “Game” has a single-camera feel and already plays like a half-hour dramedy as it mixes comedy with drama more than a traditional sitcom does.
Still, keeping the three-year old game on for another season is considered a long shot. Once a promising newcomer airing behind Girlfriends the series that spun it off, Game as well as Everybody Hates Chris have been relegated to low-rated Friday night, where “Game” has averaged 1.9 million viewers and a 0.8 rating in adults 18-34 this season. Additionally, an hour long “Game” wouldn’t necessarily mesh well with CW’s other dramas, which are skewing younger and far less urban, and a format switch after three seasons also would complicate a potential syndication run of the show.
They can cancel Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, 9021-who gives a sh*t….BUT, they better keep The Game on the air. Sistas ’round the nation are still pissed off with the way they dismissed Girlfriends. Yup, we still remember. This is all we have left
