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.
