NBC Cancels ‘My Own Worst Enemy’ and ‘Lipstick Jungle’

I guess that the networks will cancel their shows.  After a so far quiet killing season among the network ranks, NBC dropped the guillotine this evening on two of its shows.  Lipstick Jungle and My Own Worst Enemy are no more.  They have perished.  Cancellations have been levied, and there will be no saving either show.  Lipstick Jungle has filmed all 13 episodes of its initial half-season order, though it's unclear whether it, or My Own Worst Enemy (which is currently filming its ninth and final episode), will continue on the schedule for the time being or be immediately removed from the schedule.  Nonetheless, it's a disappointing moment for NBC, which had high hopes for each show, only to see them fail miserably in the ratings.

My Own Worst Enemy was supposed to be a hit.  A high-budget spy drama, starring big name Christian Slater, it was given the supposedly coveted post-Heroes time slot.  It did no good, and audiences did not respond in any meaningful way to the series.  In Monday's episode, My Own Worst Enemygarnered horrible numbers among adults 18-49, bringing in under five million viewers.  Although only four episodes into the series, NBC apparently had seen enough and have unceremoniously removed the show from its schedule.  Lipstick Jungle got a surprising renewal after its generally poorly received first season.  It has been moved nights in this, its second season, but it did no good.
