PVR's Are Great For Me - Bad For TV Shows

The rumors about "Lipstick Jungle" are true: The NBC series starring Brooke Shields, Kim Raver and Lindsay Price as high-powered New York women has been cancelled.

Rain-soaked crew members on-location with the show today outside of NBC's "Today" show studios in Rockefeller Center confirmed the episode they are filming is the show's last.

NBC did not officially confirm the cancellation.

Today's shoot was taking place on the "Today" show set with scenes including Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, co-hosts of the morning show's fourth hour.

"Lipstick Jungle," based on a book by "Sex and the City" author Candace Bushnell, is averaging just 5.2 million viewers per episode this season, according to Nielsen. The series had recently been moved from its plum time slot Wednesdays at 10 p.m. to Friday night.


Apparently this show is the #1 dvr / pvr 'd show in it's timeslot, but since we all fast forward the commercials, advertisers have dropped off. Don't they know us Mom's are busy, and we need to watch stuff when we finally sit down?! Pft. I'm going to miss Nico Reilly and her hottie 24 year old boyfriend, Kirby. He is the hotness.

Lindsey Price is my landlady's cousin.

she was the weakest on the show actually, though her relationship with andrew mccarthy was intriguing.

I only watched sporadically. Agree that Kirby is the hotness!
