Lipstick Jungle Junked?

Say it isn't so! They may as well just cancel it altogether.

NBC announced it was doing a re-shuffle and moving Lipstick Jungle to Friday nights. The cast, Brooke Shields, Kim Raver, Lindsay Price, Andrew McCarthy, & Robert Buckley, may just as well shuffle their way back to LA in time for pilot season.

It seems to me that for some reason, it is hard to capture an audience where the program deals with women, their careers, friendships, and love lives. Basically, Sex & the City for the modern generation. Teen soaps (One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, 90210) flourish all over. Crime dramas (Law & Order, CSI, NCIS) keep being added. Medical shows (Grey's Anatomy, House, ER) remain high on the list. But Cashmere Mafia, Emily's Reasons Why Not, and possibly Lipstick Jungle are shows that if you blink, they're dunzo.

At least I still have How I Met Your Mother!
