I would have really preferred ABC to bring back My Wife and Kids instead of greenlighting a new unrelated comedy series with Damon Wayans. It's bad enough we won't ever know if Jay was pregnant. Yep, I can already see myself comparing the sitcoms against each other; therefore and thus and such, I have a feeling that I'm not going to like this new show at all.

Damon Wayans, who starred for five seasons on the ABC comedy series My Wife & Kids, will return to the network as the lead actor in another family sitcom. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the as-yet-untitled show will be a bit edgier than "Wife" and star the comic as a recent widower who has to take in the 19-year-old stepson he never knew.

The project is ABC's second family comedy in development starring a black comedian after the sitcom deal with Cedric the Entertainer, who begins production on his show next week. In Cedric's new untitled sitcom, the comedian portrays the man of the house who has to get used to his wife (played by Regina Hall, Scary Movie, The Honeymooners) becoming the main breadwinner after her hobby turns into a multimillion-dollar venture.

Wayans' project attracted interest from several networks before landing at ABC with a script commitment. Like Wife, it will be written and executive produced by Wayans and Don Reo. Both had been looking to collaborate on a new project since Wife was cancelled in April 2005.
