For more than five years, FOX has preempted the show for sports, canceled it briefly during its 10th season, they even had to close up shop and later round everyone up again. They have been renewed for a thirteen season. Last year, they even begged them to come back because they have been in a jam. For me, the show keeps getting better. Last season was a bit slow, but Cotton Hill died and lots of hilarious stuff happened... including Joseph falling in love with a girl who turned out to his sister... John Redcorn had an affair while having his affair with Nancy. Luanne is still pregnant with Lucky's child, they will marry May 20th.
