CPAs ruled TV in 2007 … for 6 weeks, anyway
CPAs finally landed a starring role on network television in 2007. The show in question was NBC's "Andy Barker, P.I." (we told you about the show when it was launched in March). It was the story of a CPA-turned-private detective (played by Andy Richter) and one of the best-reviewed sitcoms of the year.
As the year comes to a close, we have some good news about that show ... and some bad news.
First, the good news: Entertainment Weekly has listed "Andy Barker, P.I." as one of the 10 best new shows of 2007. In its review, EW calls the show "strange, smart" and "a superb satire" of the detective genre.
The bad news? The show was cancelled after only six episodes.
For prime-time CPAs, it's back to the drawing board ...
