Lipstick Jungle Could Get the "Friday Night Lights Treatment"

Lipstick Jungle Could Get the "Friday Night Lights Treatment"

Last year, NBC saved one beloved but low-rated show — Friday Night Lights — by striking an innovative deal with DirecTV. Now, they're interested in doing it with another show: Lipstick Jungle.

The series doesn't have the critical love that FNL gets, but it does have a passionate fan base, and NBC said it's looking into a similar arrangement to keep the show going. At a conference on Tuesday, NBC's Ben Silverman said:

We have some incredible channels in our portfolio and we have sister networks that love the show as well. We are analyzing what we need to do to keep that show on the air.

In terms of those "sister networks," Oxygen, Bravo, and USA are all part of the NBC family, and I could imagine the show being a good fit on one of them. I also wonder if Lifetime would be interested if none of the NBC channels want the show. What do you think? Would you follow Lipstick to another channel? And which do you think would be the best home for the show?

My wife and i have watched since the beginning and just heard it might not come back because they brought back fnl, if they were to puy the show on cable count us in to follow it.

Let's hope DirecTV picks it up and runs it like FNL. It would be awesome to have Fridays or Saturdays be the 'sister network' night and show these.

I would follow it! I could see it if not on NBC than on Bravo because USA has The Starter Wife and I think that would be too much for one network. Seeing it on Oxygen wouldn't make sense because all they play is Snapped and Bad Girls Club marathons. So yeah, NBC and Bravo have my vote.

I would follow it to another channel. I love this show! I also totally agree about the 4400 comment. I loved that show and they could of at least come back and done like a 2 hour episode and ended it properly.

I would follow Lipstick Jungle to any network channel, as long as I subscribe to it already. I really loved the show and it shouldn't be cancelled at all!

That would be awesome. I just don't want them to end on that cheesy montage, with Nico going back to Kirby instead of the way-more-sexy Griffin.

i would MUCH RATHER the show go to another network than to DirectTV since i don't subscribe to that and it would mean that i wouldn't get to see the show anymore. i feel like it could be ok on another channel but i guess we'll have to wait and see what they decide.

I hope it gets to stay on the air first off because it was a good show, secondly I hate when shows end unsettled! I think lipstick jungle would be a good fit for the USA network, I'm not sure about the other stations BRAVO is way to reality tv driven, and well lifetime I would respect the show a lot less and probably not watch it anymore! I wish The 4400 would get the FNL treatment I miss that show and don't understand why Sci Fi never picked it up!

I would follow it. And I often thought that USA might be a good network for the show and wondered why it didn't end up there originally. What concerns me is the budget. The clothes and everything, plus the actors and all of that- I just don't think it would be as good if they had to scale anything back. I don't know if it would be the same without NBC itself behind it. Compare Lipstick Jungle to Starter Wife. They are night and day in terms of look and feel.

i loved lipstick jungle! and since i don't usually go out on fridays (tired after a long week), i looked forward to having a solid show to watch. needless to say, i'm disappointed the show was cancelled, but would definitely follow it to another channel!
