NBC axes `Lipstick Jungle,' `My Own Worst Enemy'
See story here.
Just a brief note about this recent news. Last season I stuck with Lipstick Jungle because I loved the book (by Candace Bushnell). I was disappointed because I felt that the writers needed to find their way. This season I felt like they had. The storylines were fun, the characters were starting to sound real and the clothes were perfection. But once again NBC moved the series around and never really gave anyone a chance to find it and watch. I was (and am) disappointed that the show is leaving and I hope that maybe another network will realize that this could be the start of something great and pick it up.
As for My Own Worst Enemy, I have not watched but have heard that the show is good and getting better but there is no way that people will start following a show after only three episodes.
Shame on you NBC for not allowing people to find great shows. As we complain about the short attention spans of our children how about we take a look at the short attention spans of ourselves. Give us a chance to fall in love with a show. Contrary to popular belief (and The Bachelor) people do not fall in love and "make a connection" after only three weeks.
