I think he might be able to if his Chicken Pox are really bad!
PASADENA, California (AP) -- Jason Lee has an excuse for missing work better suited for a first grader. He has the chicken pox.

Production on NBC's "My Name Is Earl" is being shut down for a couple of weeks "until he's feeling better and presentable to be on TV again," said Greg Garcia, the show's creator and executive producer.

The freshman comedy is a bright spot on NBC's schedule and was recently moved to Thursdays, once the fabled home of the network's "must-see TV" lineup.

NBC announced Sunday it was renewing "My Name Is Earl" and another Thursday comedy, "The Office," for a second season.

Wow...unaware of not just the 1978 ABC show, but the 2003-Present Sci-Fi remake.

Now THAT'S an interesting culteral speedbump.
How many people watch the 2003 remake? A million? Two million? I was 3 in 1978 and I do remember the show (along with Buck Rogers and Planet of the Apes TV show, and Love Boat, Fantasy Island and Charlies Angels). I just don't remember many of the character names from that time (except for that awful Hawkman from BR).

I didn't know I would so mystify someone by referring to a character in a show which generates enough views and replies in this forum to place it in the top 5 of episodic program-related threads. (At least since the reset)

Come on... are you seriously saying that you cannot remember the character names of Mr. Roarke or Tatoo??

On a completely seperate note, Fred Grandy who played Gopher in Love Boat became a member of congress is 1986. As he entered the elevator, a Senate Paige said "Lido Deck, sir?" The paige was fired the next day. This was the friend of a friend, so it may be an urban legend, but still is damn funny.
