NBC Cancels Lipstick Jungle and My Own Worst Enemy

NBC Cancels <I>Lipstick Jungle</I> and <I>My Own Worst Enemy</I> And the cancellations begin! As much as I've been enjoying weecapping My Own Worst Enemy for all you nice people, not to mention watching Christian Slater do some sexy kung fu movies every week, quite often shirtless, after the way the show dropped off in entertainment value since the pilot, I'm fine with it being canceled. At this point, it's unclear whether Monday's episode will be pulled from the schedule, or if NBC will decide to show the remaining five that have been shot. Either way, the series has wrapped for good after shooting only nine episodes, due to crap ratings. Sigh, I will miss seeing Christian Slater every week. Can we work on getting him a better series, Hollywood? Now, on to Lipstick Jungle.

I love Brooke Shields, but LJ just isn't my kind of show. I've seen a few episodes and they bored the hell out of me, but that may have just been me. What I'm saying is I have no idea if it was good or not because I don't know anything about its genre. Anyway, after a humiliating move from Wednesday nights to Friday nights, Lipstick Jungle sunk to a lowly three million viewers per week, and has been given the axe as well. As with My Own Worst Enemy, the show has shot 13 episodes, but it's unclear if the remaining eps will air.

Will you miss either show? And most importantly, let's play the blame game! I blame Heroes being a crappy lead-in for My Own Worst Enemy's fall, mostly because it's not like people won't watch an action show because it makes no sense and has muddled plotlines (I'm looking at you, Prison Break.) Which network shows do you think are next? My (dirty, sexy) money's on Dirty Sexy Money.
