'The Beautiful Life' Gets the Axe


'The Beautiful Life' Gets the Axe
After only airing two episodes, The CW pulls the plug on the Ashton Kutcher-produced drama about young models living in New York.


The new fall season has claimed its first casualty with the cancellation of "The Beautiful Life: TBL". Although 13 episodes have been ordered for the first season, The CW on Friday, September 25 confirmed that it has opted to pull the plug on the Ashton Kutcher-produced drama series after airing only two episodes.

The show chronicling the lives of young models in the fast lane has been pulled off the schedule effective immediately. Production of the show has been shut down. Despite the fact that the series has been filmed to its seventh episode, the network has no plans to air any of the remaining finished episodes.

The cancellation news didn't come in as a shock since "Beautiful Life" had a poor rating right from the start. The September 16 premiere only managed to draw in 1.4 million viewers, and this Wednesday, September 23, episode barely scraped above 1 million viewers. To make it worse, the latter one generated a 0.5 rating in the adult demo.

There is yet word on what will fill the 9 P.M. Wednesday time period. Announcement for a replacement is expected to come from The CW at least by Monday, September 28. Rumor has it, the network, which recently picked up "Fly Girls" and a Tinsley Mortimer docusoap, may replace it with reruns of "Melrose Place".

"The Beautiful Life: TBL" revolves around a group of male and female models living together in a coed residence in New York. Mischa Barton portrays a supermodel and veteran of the high-fashion circuit who is struggling to keep on top and is in danger of slipping. Sara Paxton, Corbin Bleu and Elle Macpherson among others join the star of "The O.C." in the cast ensemble.
