King of the Hill information

Phyllis Diller diesA true comedy legend has died at the age of 95. Phyllis Diller passed away in her sleep earlier today at her home in Brentwood, California.

Born in 1917 in Lima, Ohio, Diller was first a housewife, mother and then a advertising copywriter. She’d studied music in her earlier years but gave it up, believing that she’d never be as good as her teachers.

In 1955, she was a mother of five children living in Northern California. It was then, at the age of 37, that she made her nightclub debut at the Purple Onion in San Francisco. She kept working there for 87 straight weeks and over the years developed a unique self-deprecating act that kept her working in stand-up for the rest of her life.

King of the Hill: FOX Announces Series Finale, What About the Rest?

August 10, 2009
FOX just can't seem to decide if they want King Of The Hill or not. Created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels, King Of The Hill centers around the Hills, a blue-collar family living in Texas. The animated series debuted on January 12, 1997 and features the voice talents of Mike Judge, Kathy Najimy, Pamela Adlon, Johnny Hardwick, Stephen Root, Brittany Murphy, Toby Huss, David Herman, Ashley Gardner, Lauren Tom, Tom Petty, Breckin Meyer, Jonathan Joss, and Phil Hendrie. Back in 2005, the show was set to be cancelled but execs changed their minds when the ratings went up and the Hill family stuck around for a few more seasons. Last October, FOX announced that they were officially cancelling the animated sitcom. Though there were still several new episodes left , the April 12th episode was initially described as the animated sitcom's series finale. Several original episodes aired after that. It was later confirmed that there were still six original episodes left. FOX had already licensed two of them and the network had the option to license the remaining four. FOX pulled the show completely in late July, an indication that it was gone for good. Last week, at the Television Critic's Summer Press Tour, FOX's network president, Kevin Reilly, said that it was unlikely that the network would be airing any more new episodes of King of the Hill.
