The poor rating of NBC's "My Own Worst Enemy" and "Lipstick Jungle" may become the reason behind the possible axing of both series.

Bad news comes from NBC network. E! Online has been informed by "reliable sources" that on November 12, the network has decided to terminate its two TV series, "My Own Worst Enemy" and "Lipstick Jungle", at the same time.

The termination is believed to have something to do with the series' ratings. By its third episode, "Enemy" only received 5.2 million viewers, slipping down from the pilot's rating that got 7.3 million viewers. Having similar poor rating, "Jungle" merely received 4.9 million viewers from its latest episode.

In addition, same sources also give further information that the network will not order more episodes for both series in the future, but it will be glad to have another project with Christian Slater, "Enemy" main cast.

Despite this surfacing cut-off news, NBC who has the right to air both series has not given any response regarding the matter. In the meantime, FOX has prepared for its upcoming new series, titled "Dollhouse", which will be premiered in January 2009.

On behalf of all the real Angies out there (without secret spy husbands), DO NOT CANCEL THIS SHOW! After the dishes are done, and the kids are in bed, what do we look forward to? Our TIVO with our favorite show, MOWE.I actually rewatch this show during the week, 2-3X. The only moms I know who don't watch this show are those without TIVO. The execs' got to figure out a more updated way to count viewers. TIVO is the only way we watch TV here in suburbia. And hey advertisers, who do you think is doing all the Target shopping? Keep cancelling our shows and we may all ditch Prime TimeTV altogether and go back to reading before bed.

My husband and I LOVE "My Own Worst Enemy." NBC likes to cancel shows we like (i.e. Pretender). I am very disappointed in NBC. Please keep MOWE on the air. NBC only has a few shows that we watch and you slowly losing us forever. We absolutely hate your Thursday night line up. All the comedy shows on that night are extremely stupid and boring. NBC has lost a lot since the ending of Friends and Will and Grace. You may lose us forever.

I really love the cast and storyline of Lipstick Jungle. It is a shame. Maybe another network can pick it up and we can all continue to see it.
