Here are some more news on ‘Pulling’. It’s not good nor bad news. I really hope the show gets picked up.

The networks aren’t expected to announce their schedules until the week of May 18th, but ABC got a jump on the competition yesterday by announcing that they had given an early pickup to single-camera comedy Modern Family, from writer/executive producers Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, giving the series an initial thirteen-episode commitment.
Looking extremely likely for a series order at ABC is drama Flash Forward, especially given the fact that ABC has already launched an on-air viral campaign for the series with its “What did you see?” tagline. ABC executives are slated to screen the pilot and it’s a given that Flash Forward will make it on the schedule. Other slots on the schedule could go to such drama projects as Happy Town, V, Limelight, Empire State, The Unknown, or Eastwick.
On the comedy front Awesome Hank (formerly known as Untitled Kelsey Grammer) is looking positive as are Ricky Blitt’s Romantically Challenged (formerly known as Single With Baggage) and Bill Lawrence’s comedy Cougar Town, though I’ve also heard some negative buzz forming about the latter. I’m hearing from several sources that comedies Pulling, Best Thing Ever, and The Law turned out decent but not spectacularly, although ABC’s redo on The Middle screened very well. It seems like there’s no hope for comedies No Heroics and Canned, however.
Meanwhile, several ABC pilots have gotten some title changes, with Lauren Graham’s untitled comedy pilot reverting back to Let It Go (its original moniker), the untitled Tad Quill pilot now getting retitled as Best Thing Ever, the untitled Anita Renfroe pilot will now be called Bless This Mess, and Don’t Try This at Home is now entitled Married Not Dead.
