The CW pretty much hammered the nails to the coffin as they have decided to not order the “back 9” episodes to complete a full season for Life Unexpected. The show was (barely) renewed last year and has been performing disgustingly in it’s return this year. They haven’t officially announced that the show has been cancelled, but it’s pretty much guaranteed. Life Unexpected has been performing just as bad or worse than last year’s disaster, Melrose Place.
In other cancellation news, NBC has pulled the plug on JJ Abrams’ newest spy drama Undercovers, his first true failure of a show. Last nights airing got about 5.8 million viewers and just a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating, even low for NBC’s already-low standards (and ratings). The show will air for 3 more weeks and then the other 3 episodes will be burned off in a time-slot that is still to be announced.
Also, some news on The Vampire Diaries! MovieLine’s Michael Ausiello, who is now free from Entertainment Weekly, is reporting that Law & Order: SVU Alum/ADA Michaela McManus will be having a recurring role on The CW’s highest rated show, The Vampire Diaries. McManus will play Jules, a friend of Mason Lockwood who goes to Mystic Falls to try to find him, but little does she know that Damon Salvatore ripped his heart out (literally) 2 episodes ago. That’s pretty much a guarantee that more drama is heading towards Tyler, who recently turned into a werewolf, and will soon be told of yet another relatives death. Her role is expected to be introduced sometime in December. By the way, you can catch a new episode of The Vampire Diaries tonight at 8 PM ET on The CW.
