MSN TV reports this news, and I’m not happy ūüė°. I never watched Lipstic Jungle, but I know I watch My Own Worst Enemy and I like it. Like me, many people are¬†bummed and even enraged¬†with this poor decision of NBC, one of them even called NBC = No Brainer Company, lol. Currently NBC has 9 out of 13 episodes planned of Enemy and is not going to order the rest. So it looks like we’ll never see the end of Edward/Henry saga. Also, MadTV on Fox is cancelled too, and ABC axed Dirty Sexy Money, Eli Stones, and Pushing Daisies (despite the protests and online petition).

But I assure you, fans of the shows won’t let their beloved shows get axed so easily. Just like Save The Mole campaign, people are making online petitions trying to save the tv shows. Even though I doubt how effective it will be (The Mole was cancelled despite the protests), but I signed the petition for My Own Worst Enemy. If you want to sign the petition for Enemy too, click here. For Lipstic Jungle, click here, and for Pushing Daisies, click here.

A little update: I read from somewhere (forgot the source) that Brooke Shields, the star of Lipstic Jungle, said that the show isn’t cancelled. Her producers confirmed the news to her, and are trying to figure out what caused the misunderstanding.

As I’ve analyzed before, it looks like TV networks only¬†cares the rating of the show when the show is playing. The only care on how many “warm bodies” watch it, they don’t care if people actually record it on DVR because the time slot isn’t allowing people to watch it or it clashes with other tv shows. That doesn’t mean that people don’t watch the show, they watch it, just later. I really hope that TV networks take this into account, and they will figure out how to count the “rating” of recorded shows. Then they will see that they’ve made a huge mistake.

There’s an article on MSN TV about shows that might get a closed curtain this Fall¬†and other new shows that get green light for 2nd season, like Fringe, The Mentalist, Entrourage, True Blood, Burn Notice and Psych (yay!). There are also some shows that are still on question mark, including My Own Worst Enemy, but I really hope that this one will last for at least 1 full season. Today Christian Slater came to Ellen show to promote his show, and he said that he’s just filmed 7th episode.

On the article, the author also lists 10 shows that he thinks might be cancelled: Til Death, The Adventures of Old Christine, Privileged, Lipstic Jungle, Terminator: Sarah Connor, Gary Unmarried, The Unit, The Ex List, Knight Rider, and Pushing Daisies. I don’t watch any of them; I only watch Knight Rider and Terminator once or twice, but I just can’t fit those 2 shows on my schedule to watch it regularly.¬†

Anyways, there’s also a forum there for people to discuss their thougts on which shows to go, and some people are unhappy¬†their favorite shows are¬†about to be cancelled. I feel for them because I was¬†(and still am a little)¬†pissed at ABC for canceling The Mole.¬†

I can’t be a judge on which shows to go, but I know which shows that I want to see next season, and some of them are: Burn Notice, Psych, and Eureka. The three shows are on their mid-season break and will return early next year. For reality shows and game shows, I’d love to see 2nd season of I Survive Japanese Game Show as long as they have fresh new ideas. Wipeout is always refreshing, and its 2nd season is on the making. For Crusoe and My Own Worst Enemy, I’d like to see the full 1 season to decide whether or not I wanna watch¬†the 2nd season. However, I doubt that Crusoe will have 2nd season, afterall, I think it’s a miniseries based on books. Of course, the writers can always write new materials, but if it’s not good, it’s better to leave it as it is.

Update: this website provides the update of shows and their status, whether they’re cancelled, still in production (at least until next season) or likely renewed. According to the lastest update, Chuck, Prison Break, and Ugly Betty have high chances to be renewed.

That’s all that I can think of at the moment, I’ll add more once I think of something else. What do you think? Which shows should stay or go? Comment away ūüôā
