Lipstick Jungle And My Own Worst Enemy Cancelled
NBC has made a decision about the fate of My Own Worst Enemy and Lipstick Jungle and the news is not good. The network has decided to cancel both series due to poor ratings. While Lipstick Jungle was on its second season, My Own Worst Enemy was one of the network’s new seasons and barely had the chance to grow on people.
The Hollywood Reporter posted the news, stating that both series hit new ratings lows in the recent weeks. Lipstick Jungle hasn’t been able to attract much more than 3 million viewers in its Friday night timeslot.
Enemy, the spy thriller series that stars Christian Slater was only bringing in 4.3 million viewers. As for the series’ timeslot, the Reporter refers to it as “NBC’s coveted post-Heroes time-period” but to be honest, I’m not sure how great a spot it really is. NBC’s Journeyman and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip both resided in that same timeslot (Monday nights at 10:00 PM) and we all know how well it worked out for them. One might speculate that the timeslot is cursed but looking at it more practically, it’s entirely possible that people are simply not willing to stay up past 10 on a Monday night to watch TV.
It’s not known whether NBC will pull Enemy from the line-up or if they’ll finish out whatever episodes they have finished and let the series, which is currently shooting it’s ninth episode play out for a bit longer. Lipstick Jungle is finished shooting all 13 of the episodes that NBC initially ordered. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if NBC actually airs what’s left of them.
