ABC didn't stop its trimming with "Happy Endings. " The network will not bring back "Malibu Country" or "Body of Proof" either. The network may have stuck with one of its musical performers ("Nashville"), but it has dropped its comedy version, "Malibu Country. " The laffer, part of the network's attempt at reviving its TGIF comedy block on Fridays, starred Reba McEntire as a country singer who uprooted her family and moved them to Malibu after her husband's extramarital affair went public.

Reba McEntire, who spent five seasons on the WB and one on the CW in a sitcom that bore her name, returns to television Friday in ABC's "Malibu Country," the fall season's second country-music-related network series, after "Nashville. " (Also on ABC.) Slotted next to Tim Allen's "Last Man Standing," with which it shares an executive producer, "Reba" vet Kevin Abbott (who also wrote the pilot), it suggests a slight return of TGIF, the family-friendly sitcom block that expressed the network's theory of Friday-night programming all through the 1990s.

After recording seven albums that weren't exactly right, country singer Reba McEntire made an all-out effort on her most recent album to explain to her producer the sound she was after. "I wasn't finding the kind of songs I was looking for," McEntire said during an interview at her hotel, only a few hours after arriving in Los Angeles for shows today at the Palomino, her first local appearance in almost three years.

Reba McEntire discerns one primary difference between her dual careers as a singer and an actress, and that's artistic control. "I have absolutely no control as an actress of how I end up on screen," she says. "When I make records, I sing and then I listen to it. If I don't like it, I can fix it right there. But when I'm acting, I have somebody, a complete stranger, telling me how to act. Then when they go and edit it, they might edit out the thing that drew my reaction.

Smokey Robinson is getting in on the duets album action. Following his appearance Wednesday night on "American Idol," the R&B legend announced Thursday that he's to release a set of all-star duets this fall through the Verve Music Group. The album will join a rash of such collections, including recent efforts from Tony Bennett, Reba McEntire and Lionel Richie. Paul Anka has one due out next month, while John Fogerty will unveil his in May. But wait! "Unlike any other duet-themed project produced to date," a statement insists, "this unique album will include all hits written by Robinson," and that certainly seems true enough: Pop & Hiss can't recall another duets record filled only with Robinson's songs.

You'll need to do what the title says to figure out why McEntire puts so much effort into so many stories of love-starved women wasting time pursuing their dead-end romantic fantasies. The women in these 10 songs rarely take any initiative in determining the course of their lives. They are passive characters who don't end up wiser, just sadder. "She Thinks His Name Was John" is a prime example.

ABC has given full-season orders to rookie comedy "The Neighbors" and sophomore drama "Scandal. " "The Neighbors," which centers on a family who moves into a block populated by aliens who live as humans, premiered to decent numbers in late September. The Wednesday comedy, paired with the network's hit "Modern Family," has been a modest performer. And though news recently broke that Shonda Rhimes' "Grey's Anatomy" spinoff "Private Practice" would be ending its run, her other drama got a boost.

ABC'selephant in the room - "Modern Family" - got poked and prodded by a room full of reporters at the Television Critics Assn. press tour Friday, but the network's entertainment president mostly ignored the beast in his session presenting a fall season overview. The Emmy-winning comedy has been making headlines as key cast members hold out for more money, skipping a table read for the coming season, then deciding to sue 20th Century Fox Television. As many as four questions during the 45-minute session focused on the network's hit comedy and the current status of contract talks, but ABC entertainment president Paul Lee kept things brief.
