Do Not Disturb Becomes First Fall Cancellation

Do Not Disturb

Well, at least this will give Jerry O’Connell time to focus on becoming a new father.

After only three episodes. FOX’s Do Not Disturb has become the first casualty of the fall season. The show - which was only watched by only 3.5 million this Wednesday - has already been pulled off the schedule. As of October 1, the network will air a one hour block of ‘Til Death (1 original, 1 repeat) for the time being.

While it’s doubtful the show would have succeeded in any circumstance (the producers already acknowledged that the first episode was simply “bad television”), the series never stood a chance during its assigned time slot. Seriously - did FOX honestly think a freshman program could survive against Criminal Minds, Private Practice and Project Runway?

Assessing (and Ignoring) the New Fall Season

Kitchen NightmaresAs I type this, I’m listening to the new Radiohead album, In Rainbows, and I’m in a terrifically good mood.  See, I love Radiohead like Tyra Banks loves … well, Tyra Banks, and so you would think that this good mood would make me put together a list of wonderful things about the new fall TV season.

Lucy Liu, Jerry O’Connell Join ‘Betty’ for February Sweeps

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Comedy, Drama, Prime Time, ABC, Ratings,

Ugly Betty Prepare for the guest appearances, as we head into February sweeps. Ugly Betty will be adding Lucy Liu and Jerry O’Connell to the roster for brief guest star appearances. Liu, who is no stranger to television after appearing on Ally McBeal, will be seen in two episodes beginning on February 15th. Her role should be fun (how could it not be, with this irresistible actress)—she’ll be playing a college classmate of Daniel Meade’s (Eric Mabius). He calls on her for help, but since he stood her up for a date back in college, this could be tricky. O’Connell is a regular on Crossing Jordan, but will be swinging by Betty for one episode on February 15th. And here you can expect cuteness, because he’ll meet up with Alexis Meade (played by Rebecca Romijn, who is engaged to O’Connell) at a bar.
