What's this? "Lipstick Jungle" may not be cancelled after all, although it remains very much on the bubble. According to the New York Times, last Friday's airing of the Brooke Shields series showed enough life to inspire NBC to issue a stay of execution. The rabid fan support -- which has including mailing lipstick tubes to NBC -- and Shields' denial have also surely helped in this maybe-resurrection. NBC's Ben Silverman says the network will finish filming the last of the 13 episodes it originally ordered, and it may order more if the show “grows more.”
Meanwhile, USA has announced that the highly rated "Monk" will film only one more season, its eighth, which will air next summer. According to E!, the series finale will address the series-long mystery about the death of Monk's wife, Trudy.
