Well it didn’t take very long for NBC to decide to cancel Christian Slater’s “My Own Worst Enemy.” The show’s ninth episode, the last in the can, is scheduled to air on December 15, and it’ll be the show’s last. Not a surprise, given the heavy level of cheese and the fact that it was doing pretty terrible in the ratings (third place). And given the quick yank, there won’t be any resolution for fans who are into that sort of thing (while I’ve been watching the show, I wouldn’t consider myself a fan by any stretch, and couldn’t give a shit about resolution of anything).

It is a surprise that NBC has also canceled “Lipstick Jungle.” Actually, not so much a surprise that the show is being killed (its ratings were beyond abysmal). The surprise is just that it took the network so damn long. The show’s got a full half-season (13 episodes) in the can, with episode 8 scheduled for this week. NBC will let it air out the rest of the episodes, and folks expect that “Friday Night Lights” will take over its crappy Friday time slot in January.
