NBC Cancels Lipstick Jungle, My Own Worst Enemy

Enemy and Lipstick are Gone; What's Next to Worry About?

Word slipped out late yesterday that NBC was axing both Lipstick Jungle and My Own Worst Enemy from its schedule, but there's some good news today: There are reports that both shows will at least get to air their remaining episodes in their current time slots. Lipstick will have 13 episodes and is wrapping production on them this week, while Enemy will end after nine episodes.

According to The Futon Critic, Friday Night Lights could take over the Lipstick slot in January, to which I can really only say "hooray!" — this season's episodes on DirecTV have been wonderful. NBC hasn't announced a successor for Enemy yet, but it's now set up to end on the same day as the finale of the "Villains" chapter of Heroes, so if NBC wanted to completely overhaul its Monday schedule, that wouldn't be a bad time.

So, since networks seem to be in a chopping mood, what shows are next to worry about? Two ABC shows, Dirty Sexy Money and Pushing Daisies, seem particularly vulnerable, since neither was on a potential ABC midseason schedule that was floated earlier this week. There's a report that Prison Break could be on its way out. And while Chuck already has a full-season order, consider this my official plea for NBC to get it out of the high-traffic Mondays-at-8 time slot (competing against Gossip Girl, How I Met Your Mother, and, before long, House) if there's any hope for a season three.

Will you miss Enemy or Lipstick? And which other shows are you concerned about?

i think they are out of their minds for canceling Lipstick Jungle. I hope HBO picks it up and if they do I will subscribe to HBO and stop watching NBC. I'm sick of the reality shows they play every single day. How about some real TV???????? Taking a few deep breaths.... I'm so mad.

I guess I should have seen it coming, since they moved LJ to a Friday slot ... but I was just telling Buzz how much I love it! Where else am I going to see Robert Buckley without a shirt on?

I'm really disappointed about My Own Worst Enemy getting canceled. It had a great premise, excellent actors, and was fun to watch. Too bad about Lipstick Jungle too. I've always liked Brooke Shields. Any suggestions on best ways to petition to get the network execs to change their mind?

I LOVE Dirty Sexy Money AND Pushing Daisies, but if I had to save only one it'd be PUSHING DAISIES all the way. That show is darn right Whimsical!

NBC always breaks my heart! there were so many great and hilarious shows that they pulled the plug mid season 1!! and now lipstick jungle and perhaps chuck!! what's worse of all is no more robert buckley :( I really hope Chuck will be safe! As for Prison break, it's about time that it gets the axe. They've dragged us on for way too long, I completely gave up on it past two seasons.

I am so bummed about Lipstick Jungle. I agree with other posts that it was picking up pace and getting really interesting. I tried Enemy and although it had potential, it was going to take a while to get it where it needed to be. I love Dirty Sexy Money and would be very bummed if it got canceled. I think it's found it's rhythm and is moving along at a very interesting pace right now. It's very upsetting when the networks axe shows based on ratings that aren't really the show's fault.

I'd be sad to see Pushing Daisies go!! I love that show :)

I really hope Pushing Daisies stays on the air. That's the only show that I watch thats really in jeopardy. I agree with saucymegstar, Pushing Daisies would be a great companion to Ugly Betty. It just seems odd to be on the same night as Private Practice and Dirty Sexy Money.

So bummed about Lipstick Jungle, but I love Friday Night Lights and hope it does well in the time slot. Such an awesome show. Can't wait til January!

I don't understand how all of the actually original shows on television get axed and the tedious procedurals and insulting reality shows get to stay. It drives me nuts.

i think that it's so interesting that LJ did so well last year and now it's kind of hitting the breaks really hard. that's what happens when you're a mid-season fill in after the strike and there's not a lot of competition right? i loved it though and i'm sad to see it go but at least there's the rest of the season for me to look forward to.

I am extremely nervous for Pushing Daisies and Dirty, Sexy, Money. These are two FABULOUS shows that deserve a long life on TV. Especially Pushing Daisies!!!! What is it even competing against on Wednesday at 8!?!

The only bright side is that FNL will be returning in January. Seriously, I cannot wait!

So sad to think Fox might give up on Prison Break. At least finish the season, and wrap up the series! There's nothing worse than when a long-running series just stops mid-season. I hate that they found a place for Sarah Connor but can't find a place for Dominic and the boys!

I'm bummed about Lipstick Jungle. It had a slow start, but it really picked up steam towards the end of the first season. I'm happy that Friday Night Lights is finally heading back to primetime network TV though! Although I have to admit that I've been loading up on spoilers through tv.com. :oops:

If they move Chuck, i hope its not to Wednesdays. Even though the ABC schedule isn't confirmed yet but it shows scrubs being in the 8/830 time slot which I'm super excited about. Hopefully it stays that way because it wouldn't interfere with any other shows I watch.

Pushing Daisies is the best show on tv right now. It is so witty, fun, whimsical and I enjoy every minute of it! Put it on along with Ugly Betty and maybe it would do better. They are both really fun shows...although I don't watch UB. Most of the rest of ABC can go rot for all I'm concerned. Sorry, not bitter. Really. At least I have Dollhouse to look forward to. But I'm not giving up hope...anyone for sending silk daisies to ABC?? :)
