Goodbye Running Wilde, Hello Untitled Will Arnett/Christina Applegate Pilot!

It's the circle of sitcom life!

Back in December, we were sad to report that Will Arnett's Running Wilde had been cut from Fox's schedule. We didn't think it was a phenomenal show, but as we said then, we would have liked to see it find its footing and grow into itself.

Fortunately, those of us who need more Will Arnett in our lives are in luck!

Aside from marathon-watching HIGHlarious Arrested Development episodes on DVD, Arnett fans will soon see the actor return to TV in a currently untitled NBC comedy pilot with Christina Applegate, which we mentioned earlier this month.

The Lorne Michaels-produced pilot will offer "an irreverent look at parenthood through the eyes of an acerbic working mother (Applegate) and her stay-at-home husband, as well as other opinionated parents."

SNL fans who have been yearning for a Maya Rudolph fix will be happy to know that she'll also be starring in the show as "Applegate's coworker and BFF."

We hope this one is good! We'd absolutely love to see things work out for Arnett and Applegate!

Will U check out this show when it hits the air?

    I'm actually pretty excited about this, even though the plot seems kinda lame. But Will and Christina have that magic that could potentially make the plot better, so I will def check this out! And I'm glad Will rebounded quickly from his last show, which I hate to say I didn't find at all amusing… I'll stay tuned for this one though!

    I guess that means that Will Arnett isn't taking over for Steve Carrell in "The Office?"

    Will Arnett can certainly write, he's just not a good actor.

    Will Arnett is a one trick pony. His "Gob" character from Arrested Development is all he can do.
