‘Spin’ will cycle again at Alphabet

Skein is web's 2nd highest laffer in adults 18-49

ABC has re-elected “Spin City” to another term, voting to return the DreamWorks laffer for a sixth season next fall.

It’s been a transitional year for “Spin,” currently in its first season since original star Michael J. Fox opted to leave the series. ABC and DreamWorks already wrapped up negotiations to bring back Charlie Sheen and Heather Locklear, all but assuring the series’ return (Daily Variety, March 6).

“Spin” has been a solid performer for ABC, even after Fox’s departure. Series is ABC’s second-highest rated comedy in adults 18-49, averaging a 5.5 rating this season.

“The series’ unique point of view and its incredibly talented ensemble have allowed ‘Spin’ to shine through some pretty tough times,” said ABC Entertainment prexy Stu Bloomberg.

Besides Sheen and Locklear, “Spin” also stars Barry Bostwick, Alan Ruck, Richard Kind, Michael Boatman and Lana Parrilla. UBU Prods. produces “Spin” along with DreamWorks TV.

With “Spin” and “The Drew Carey Show” set to return, ABC’s attention will now turn to negotiations with 20th Century Fox TV over bringing “Dharma & Greg” back to the network.
