Aww... bye, My Boys. I promise someday you'll be glad you lost all one thousand of your jobs because of TBS's bungling.
The news broke too late in the day to make yesterday's installment, but if you haven't heard by now, My Boys has finally been officially cancelled. A lot of people are expressing sympathy for Jordana Spiro and Kyle Howard having to miss out on their NBC pilots because TBS took so long to release them from their contracts, but from what I've seen of those pilots, I'd like to reassure them that they will be glad they weren't on those shows. Love Bites is going to be cancelled faster than The Ex List was.
Tim Gunn apparently didn't like filming his Gossip Girl cameo very much, because Taylor Momsen couldn't remember her lines and acted like a "diva," a "brat" and was generally "pathetic" all-around. Thanks for the insider info, Tim, but we didn't exactly think the show fired her (allegedly! Temporarily!) because they were jealous of her awesome eyeliner.
MTV is going to continue trying scripted television with two new pickups -- Death Valley, a show about teens battling zombies (get your guns, zombie haters) and other supernatural forces, and That Girl, a show about a girl who gets more popular after her school thinks she tried to commit suicide. The controversy-baiting with that last one is so blatant I'm not even going to comment on it.
TNT has renewed Hawthorne, because they know drama. (Seriously, you see that episode where Vaughn went out to get a burrito and got run over by an old lady? Crazy shit!)
Billie Mae Richards, the voice of CBS's classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, has passed away at the age of 88. I always thought Rudolph sounded like a girl. Good to know he kind of was one.
ABC is developing a dramedy about the Vice President, but really it's about his female chief of staff hooking up with his son? Sounds awful. Unless that chief of staff is played by Barb from Cougar Town in a parallel-universe series, like Grey's and Private Practice, of course.
