Cashmere Mafia Vs. Lipstick Jungle: An Update

Remember back at the Upfronts when we were buzzing about whether Lipstick Jungle or Cashmere Mafia would be the reigning sexy-women-in-the-city show of the TV season?

Yeah, still waiting.

For a while, it looked like Cashmere was the winner, nabbing a November premiere date from ABC while Lipstick stayed in scheduling limbo. But then the writers' strike came along and ABC yanked Cashmere off the schedule. (It should have premiered two days ago.)

That opened the door for Lipstick to get some buzz back, starting with last night's Rockefeller Center tree lighting, when stars Brooke Shields, Kim Raver, and Lindsay Price announced their show will premiere Feb. 7 at 10 p.m. It will take over for ER, which will have run out of new episodes by then because of the strike, and will be up against whatever replacements the other networks find for Big Shots and Without a Trace.

My suggestion? ABC should put Cashmere up against it. Granted, I haven't seen either pilot, but Cashmere looks young and fun, and it would be a great match with Grey's Anatomy whenever the strike ends. And besides, I'm guessing most people will only watch one or the other of these shows anyway. Might as well just make them duke it out directly.
