ABC in talks for more "Jim"

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - ABC is considering yet
another improbable renewal of "According to Jim," the
critically maligned veteran sitcom starring Jim Belushi.

The network is in talks with corporate sibling ABC Studios
about bringing the show back for an eighth season. "Jim" didn't
make the cut when ABC announced its 2007/08 lineup last May,
but received an 18-episode midseason order a month later.

While ratings on the broadcast network are down
significantly from its heyday, "Jim" is a cash-making machine
for ABC Studios from its run in syndication.
