NOT SO SAFE BETTE
Bette Midler has finally gotten her wish: CBS has pulled the plug on her struggling sitcom Bette. According to Variety, the show's final original episode which ironically marks the debut of Airplane's Robert Hays as Midler's new husband is slated to air Wednesday night. Despite winning numerous accolades (including the TV Guide Award for Actress of the Year in a New Series), Midler has been publicly complaining about the grind of a weekly series. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times reports that the WB's Eddie Murphy co-created animated series The PJs will not return next season.
