Lipstick Jungle Cast gets official Cancellation Notice

Post by March2875 » Sun Mar 29, 2009 7:24 pm

According to an interview with Brooke Shields on E ONline.com The cast of Lipstick Jungle officially found out about its cancellation Thursday evening. Perhaps the verdict on Knight Rider's fate either way isn't far behind. Still hoping for a SEASON TWO.

Wasn't this confirmed almost a year ago during the same time we heard about My Own Worst Enemy getting the axe?

If they're losing shows, then that means they are losing money, which means if we fans don't continue taking strong actions, we will lose Knight Rider.

Maybe they are cutting dead weight to save it for the KR, you never know.
maybe lighting did strike and they decided to save money by cutting all this and spend some of it on KR.
Dont forget, we have Ford on the balance too, hope they get to say something about it Image :kitt:

Heroes is still around and getting another season since it's still doing better than pretty much everything else. Friday Night Lights is being kept alive due to the DirectTV deal NBC has.
The new and again improved evil's advertisement is currently too long and too badass to display here. But let's just say that with now 50% more evil, this **** is great! :twisted: :skar:

Lost Knight I think your right. There was also however, an interview with Ben Silverman at one time that they were shopping Lipstick Jungle around like they did with Friday Night LIghts and the Directv deal. Perhaps the cast was holding out hope that somebody would support it and it could come back. Perhaps that fell through.

NBC recently renewed 'Heroes' for another season only cause they are happy with the ratings it has in other countries (I don't watch it but I came aross the news on the BBC website) so hopefully they will wait to see how Knight Rider does in other countries first before deciding whether or not to keep it on air.

We really don't know that forsure, that FNL's will return, it does worse in the rating than KR08...That is a speculation that directtv could save it however it comes down to if that time slot is better suited for another show then the'll oust that show.. Personally KR08 should be in the Friday night timeslot with advertising...FNL's would be a great show for USA network it kinda reminds me a bit like smallville...

We are still panicing about KR getting cancelled...The longer that we don't know the better chance it will be renewed for a second season, if KR was really that bad we would have known a long time ago..

So everyone I have said this before RELAX!!! Take a breath!!! I love KR just as much as the next guy or gal..But hey it will be ok..I gotta a feeling....

One last thing about the Wednesday night time slot that KR08 was on...

Let's put it this way...

If they wanted to test a shows so called durability, that time slot that KR was put in the Wednesday 8pm slot was that slot...

I don't know of any other time in primetime that is worse then Wed 8pm..KR did pretty well and best of all held its demo and viewership....

So in the words of durability KITT's nano skin could have branched out to the Wednesday 8pm onslought and could have save it, thats stretching it however a funny analogy...

Friday Night Lights was saved last year by Direct TV and that was the point of what I was saying, FNL is being kept alive by DirectTV, it was the reason it was renewed last year and why it'll probably get another two seasons. It might not yet be a 100% reality but FNL's chances are certainly better than KR's due to the dealings with DTV and not having people screaming for it to be canceled. Not to mention the show is almost certainly cheaper to produce.

I gather you haven't seen Friday Night Lights, one of the best shows on TV, IMHO. It's not really about football. Incidentally, two of the writers on KR were (and still are) also writing for FNL.

Yeah, strange I couldn't find something more recent since I made that post on the same day the story actually came out.

I have heard that Ford is the only auto company that isn't asking for bailout money and said they will be ok. So with that, and the fact that NBC and Ford are "together" on the KR thing, maybe that might convince NBC to keep KR for another season. I hope so!

Ford is fine, they got money coming in from Major sources.........American Idol, Barrett-Jackson Car Auctions, the All-Ford Nationals in Carlisle PA over the summer.

Ford was going to take the money since they gave it out, but denied it since they are fine...........also Ford has many subdivision underneath that helps.........Shelby automotives, Foose, Roush Racing, Steeda, etc....

Yea they are hurting like GM because no-one is buying, but they are not dying like GM

You have a point there. I do watch FNL sometimes, and IMO, it's very well done and probably the second best underrated TV show in my book, after Knight Rider (which is number one).

I call KR underrated because it doesn't get much positive coverage much, and it's not given much attention by the media.
