    I’m not surprised My Own Worst Enemy was cancelled. Monday night at 10pm on NBC seems to be a worse spot for a new show than the graveyard known as Friday night. I was going to start watching this show, but decided not to since i had way too much on my plate already.

    I am sorry to hear about Lipstick Jungle though. I know it was a favorite of yours. I’ve seen bits and pieces of it this season and was going to catch up w/ it this summer.

    I hate hate HATE that HIMYM is using those douche bags in an upcoming episode. I will not be tuning into that particular episode. (I have not misses an episode yet).
    Did I mention I HATE that they are giving those 3 usless individuals more press? UGH.
    Hate it!

    I’ll be honest, My Own Worst Enemy was just that. The plot-contrivance was too limited. Once you’ve seen the split-personality episode a half-dozen times, where do you go with the story?

    The only reason to watch the show, frankly, was for the far-too-few scenes with Taylor Lautner, who is just freakin’ hot… other way to put it.

    Spencer and Heidi? My skin just crawled. I’d rather have LC if we’re going to pander.

    Don’t forget Kendra Wilkinson!

    Ah, and I almost, almost called My Own Worst Enemy’s cancellation. I felt it was cancellation worthy during the Spring previews.

    Don’t mind me, guys, I’m just bitter that Pushing Daisies gets no support from ABC. It doesn’t have to be a blockbuster ratings machine, but damn if ABC isn’t helping out the cause by not showing one frickin’ commercial this whole season for it.
