It looks like ABC's angsty teen soap life as we know it is knocking on death's door. At press tour Sunday, network head Steve McPherson conceded that the show's prospects looked bleak, although he stopped short of uttering the dreaded C-word. "We're really frustrated," he sighed. "We feel like we've failed in terms of getting that show an audience. We really want to make sure we've exhausted every possibility before we officially say it's gone. But it's not looking good." Meanwhile, McPherson couldn't confirm whether life's remaining unaired episodes would ever see the light of day.
