Christian Slater, Kim Raver
The end is here for My Own Worst Enemy and Lipstick Jungle.
Though NBC won't officially comment, multiple sources confirm that no additional episodes will be ordered for either series.
The double axing is hardly shocking. Despite heavy hype, the highly touted, Christian Slater-led Enemy failed to make friends with viewers, losing viewers each week. This past Monday's outing hit a new ratings low of 4.25 million viewers, representing a 42 percent plunge from its series premiere. The show's ninth episode, currently filming, is expected to be the last of its original 13-episode order.
Jungle, which has filmed all of its 13 episodes, found modest success during its brief spring first season, but sunk into a sophomore slump this season. After delivering disastrous Wednesday night numbers, Brooke Shields & Co. were shifted to Friday nights and pulled in around 3 million viewers in the past two weeks.
It is unclear when the shows will be yanked off the schedule and what the Peacock will air in their places.
Are you shocked by this development? How should NBC fill the vacated timeslots?
