Lipstick Jungle fans still in fear of the series' rumored retirement may have some additional hope to hold onto.
In light of renewed interest in the show, NBC has decided to move up its Friday timeslot to 9 pm/ET, Variety says. The new berth, however, sets Crusoe sailing out to Saturdays. The ladies of the Jungle will start primping in Crusoe's vacated hour starting Dec. 5.

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 ...

Which Friday shows got tricked, and which received treats? Let's assess the goodie bags.
Ghost Whisperer won the hour this week with 9.4 million total viewers, a 537K dip from last week's season high. (See our GW celeblog for insight on You Know, That Rumor.) Halloween really scared away the reality fans, with Deal or No Deal (five mil), 5th Grader (4.6 mil) and Wife Swap (3.6 mil) all posting percentage drops in the double digits. Similarly, the CW's family friendly Chris (1.26 mil) and The Game (1.24 mil) each sank 30 percent.
CBS looked Ex-tremely smart, as an NCIS repeat not only doubled The Ex List's last audience, but also topped the hour in viewers, with 11.2 million. Lyrics (4.56 mil) and Supernanny (4.2 mil) both were down 17 percent, while NBC's Crusoe (4.17 mil) saw 30 percent of its audience wash away.
Thanks to the stronger lead-in, Numbers delivered 10.62 mil, a 17 percent improvement upon last week's season high. Trailing 20/20 (6.9 mil), newly relocated Lipstick Jungle (3.18 mil) kissed off 35 percent of its final Wednesday audience.

I'd love it if you could give a "hint" as to whom on Wisteria Lane Desperate Housewives' Dave Williams has a vendetta against? - Barbara
Matt: Hint, coincidence or sloppy character-naming? You decide. George-the-nutty-pharmacist's last name was Williams.
I need scoop about what is going on with Cameron on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Sookie on True Blood. - Sarah
Matt: Tackling Terminator first, are you ready for some girl-on-girl action? Because the Oct. 20 episode finds Cameron slugging it out with another fierce fembot - all within the confines of an elevator. I need a cigarette already.
Mickey: I'm going to give you a non-spoiler spoiler about True Blood. I accidentally found out who the serial killer is the other day, and it kind of broke my heart. (Hint: It's one of the "good" guys.)
Have anything juicy on Gossip Girl? - Kate
Mickey: Remember how Nate and his mom helped The Captain escape prosecution? Well, I'm hearing that Mr. Archibald (Sam Robards) will reward their loyalty by… double-crossing them! Which is pretty crummy considering Nate almost became a manwhore to fix the family's money problems. Thanks, Dad!
