FCC Chairman Overturns Decision To Cancel 'Party Down'

WASHINGTON—Citing the fact that the series never really got the chance it deserved, the Federal Communications Commission announced Monday that it was immediately reversing the Starz channel's decision to cancel the critically acclaimed TV show Party Down. "We regret that [Starz] chose to end such an original program at the height of its viewership and right when Henry was finally making strides in his acting career," FCC chair Julius Genachowski said. "The FCC remains committed to serving the public good, and after sitting idly by while Veronica Mars and Firefly got dumped before they were able to find their audiences, we could not let Party Down suffer the same fate. If we give up on this show now, we're no better than the Hollywood hotshots who make Casey and the gang question their dreams." With Party Down back on the air, Genachowski said he and his colleagues could now return to working on their It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia spec script.
