Elaine,…ooops! Ellie is back! Not Elaine, Ellie. She’s back!

‘Watching Ellie’ Primed for NBC Return
HOLLYWOOD (Variety) – Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ NBC comedy “Watching Ellie” is headed back to the NBC’s prime-time schedule.
“Ellie” will be relaunched on April 15, where it will get a six-week run behind “Frasier.” The legal comedy “A.U.S.A.” will have wrapped its first season by that date.
Since viewers last tuned in to “Ellie” last year, the series has been revamped. The real-time element is out, as is the single-camera format.
By giving “Ellie” a time slot in April, NBC execs will be able to decide whether to bring the show back for a third season next fall.
The show, which stars the former “Seinfeld” co-star as a nightclub singer, snagged a surprise midseason order last May despite scoring only modest ratings in its initial outing. NBC Entertainment president Jeff Zucker, however, has been a strong supporter of the show.
