A couple of weeks ago a man was fired on the set of Charlieís Angels after slapping Minka Kelly on the rear. At the time, losing his job was probably a huge setback that pissed off both him and his wife. I bet heís laughing now that ABC has canceled the series after airing only four episodes.
Though Charlieís Angels actually posted slightly better ratings this week (up from a 1.2 to a 1.3 rating), it wasnít enough to enable the show to stay afloat. The news is not good for anyone involved in production, but especially not for Kelly, whoís having an off year. Her relationship with Derek Jeter ended recently, she had to deal with a butt-slapping, and now the series that was supposed to launch her as a TV lead has been canceled. She probably canít even pull a Jason Ritter and return to Parenthood now that her series has failed, since her character on the NBC program also made a poor move and slept with someone she shouldnít have.
Itís not all bad news. According to Deadline, eight episodes of Charlieís Angels have already been made and ABC plans to air them. Itís still not enough for a DVD set, but maybe itíll be enough to earn Kelly and the other Angels guest-starring roles on programs later in the season. Kellyís certainly got the goods. Iíd hate to see her out on the street trying to win over another baseball player. Or worse. Thereís always projects like The Roommate out there.
