NBC Cancels "My Own Worst Enemy" and "Lipstick Jungle"

NBC Cancels "My Own Worst Enemy" and "Lipstick Jungle"Submit Comment
NBC has pulled the plug on their new tentpole drama "My Own Worst Enemy" and the returning series "Lipstick Jungle," sources said Wednesday.

The cancellations come after both shows dropped to new ratings lows in recent weeks, with the Christian Slater action series sinking to a 1.8 among adults 18-49 (4.3 million viewers) on Monday and "Jungle" falling to a 1.2 (3.3 million viewers) on Friday.

Although the "Jungle" number was an improvement on the previous week, the show's ratings have been below the line for a while and sunk into the red zone after being moved to Fridays.

NBC's expectation for the return of "Jungle" was modest, but "Enemy" was considered an important show. A spy thriller with a grown-up budget inspired by the "Bourne" movies, "Enemy" received NBC's coveted post-"Heroes" time period. That valuable Monday hour of scheduling real estate has become less worthwhile in recent weeks, however, as "Heroes" shed viewers -- weakening the lead-in for "Enemy" and hastening its decline.

No word whether Monday's episode will be yanked from the schedule, if the show keep going for a few more weeks or what program will take its place. "Enemy" is now shooting its ninth -- and final -- episode. "Lipstick" has shot all 13 of its initial order.

My Own Worst Enemy would have been a great show- but they need to advertise on something other than their website or AOL...Christ if I was in charge of a show I'd stupe to any act to get the word out there. Even I can generate 1000 views a day by myself for free. It's all about where you put your links and what forums you target. Lazy advertising- no excuse.

My Own Worst Enemy was okay. I thought that it could have been better, but it just wasn't all that great to be honest. Of course, they are probably going to replace it with another dumb reality television show.

NBC please cancel Knight Rider. It is gawd awful. Strange to see the day that NBC is in 4th. Heh I'm surprised the CW hasn't caught up yet.

"My Own Worst Enemy" was an awesome concept if it would have been a Dissociative identity disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder) with a bit of Schizophrenia to boot but no, they ended up with one boring premise.
