A&E Cancels The Cleaner

The Cleaner: Benjamin Bratt

A&E has canceled The Cleaner, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The network has opted to not renew the rehab drama starring Benjamin Bratt. This news comes on the heels of the cancellation of A&E's only other scripted program, the Patrick Swayze drama The Beast, and, interestingly, the Emmy win of A&E's Intervention, which is like an unscripted version of The Cleaner.

The show's second — and now final — season concluded earlier this month.

More To Love

More to Love
9/8c Fox
Melissa's first "real" date turned out to be her last one with Luke, and with potty-mouthed Lauren getting the boot as well, our hefty hunk is now down to his "sexy six." This installment features a day at the beach, plus some dancing and (this being a reality contest) plenty of wine drinking, but the ring ceremony that follows won't exactly be a day at the beach for two of the gals. The promo seems to be promising agita involving Mandy, Kristian and Tali, but we shall see.

Mega Buzz on 24, CSI: NY, 90210, Lost, NCIS, Fringe & More

Kim Raver (24), Gary Sinise (CSI: NY) and Shenae Grimes (90210)

Every week, senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com

Will Kim Raver return to 24 since ABC didn't pick up her new show? — BrightEyez
MATT: I see where you're going with this. Since Season 8 is set in New York City, you're hoping Jack and Audrey will rendezvous, Sleepless in Seattle-style, atop the Empire State Building. Well, put a pin in that dream for now. For starters, you should be with me in wanting Jack with Renee, not Audrey. Beyond that, ABC's Inside the Box pilot is undergoing retooling/technically still in play, so Raver might not exactly be available. But one Kim you can plan on returning is Jack's daughter — sources tell me Elisha Cuthbert has already filmed scenes for Day 8's first few hours.

What can you tell us about CSI: NY's decision to hire a new CSI? — Karla
TIM: The show recently sent out casting notices for the new series regular role of Kaye Sullivan, a young, attractive ... read more

Benjamin Bratt Talks Cleaner Slate of Guests

The Cleaner, Benjamin Bratt

Are special guest stars always a shark jump? The Cleaner's Benjamin Bratt says no way — especially when they include Whoopi Goldberg, Mia Kirschner, Gary Cole, and Joe Don Baker, some of the actors appearing on his A&E drama this season. read more

The Cleaner
10 pm/ET A&E
 "Clean" doesn't always mean "bright" as evidenced by the gloomy second-season opener, which features guest star Whoopi Goldberg. The main story follows William's attempt to help a national-news anchor, played by Gary Cole, who claims to have been clean for years, but William knows better. The irony is that the man is a spokesperson for recovery. There's also little light behind the scenes, with William's troubled marriage and news of a friend's terminal illness.

A&E Releases Programming Slate, But Where's Patrick Swayze's The Beast?

The Beast

A&E's new slate of original programming doesn't include The Beast, the Patrick Swayze FBI drama imperiled by the health of its star.

That doesn't necessarily mean the end of the show — a rep for the cable network says no decision has been made about the its future — but it comes as a disappointment to Swayze fans who hoped The Beast might appear on A&E's schedule, which was released Tuesday. Swayze was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in early 2008, and shot most of the first season of The Beast while battling the disease.

A&E's sole returning scripted series, the Benjamin Bratt-starrer The Cleaner, returns June 23. read more

Mega Buzz on Housewives, 24, Leverage, Lost and More!

Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives), Elisha Cuthbert (24) and Timothy Hutton (Leverage)

Every week, senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

When will Kim Bauer be coming back to 24? And will it have anything to do with the bio-weapon Jack has been exposed to? — Yong
MATT: When I asked Kiefer Sutherland about the nature of Kim's latest encore (slated for mid-April), he said, "Something has happened to Jack, and it's he who asks for her — normally it's the other away around." Kiefer went on to call the father-daughter reunion "very human and real ... a part of the show I'm excited for the audience to see." So your theory sounds about right. Just don't expect the now-married Kim to have Pony Boy at her side; her Season 5 romance apparently didn't take. 

Are we ever going to see the Scavo twins on Desperate Housewives again? I love those goofy bastards. — Rachel
MICKEY: No word on Dumb or Dumber, but if it's adolescent angst you're hankering for, get a load of this: Another Housewife will soon ... read more
