Dirty Sexy Money, Samaire ArmstrongShocking news for fans of .  It’s seems our favorite spoiled twin set will soon be reduced to a solo act.

When the freshman series returns to the airwaves next fall, Jeremy Darling be left to beg for daddy’s money without his codependent fraternal sister.  For some undisclosed reason, ABC has decided not to pick up ‘s contract.  This decision comes coincidentally after the actress decided to take some time off mid-season.  (‘Time off’ meaning she entered a treatment facility for help with some “personal issues”.)

But don’t fret.  Armstrong’s absence does not mean a death by dagger for our dear Juliet.  The character is expected to make occasional appearances on future episodes.  She just won’t be one those people you call ‘regulars’ (or something like that).

ABC Announces Renewed Shows

Pushing Daisies Now that we are days away from a probable end to the writers strike, has felt comfortable talking about the network’s future.  Although the rest of 2007-08 remains unclear, the 2008-09 year is starting to take shape.

A total of nine shows have so far received renewal notices from the Alphabet network. That’s not to say more won’t come.  But many programs not currently listed may have reason to be nervous.

Of the shows returning this fall, five are ‘veterans’; four are newbies that survived their freshman year.  Those programs (in alphabetical order) are:  Brothers & Sisters, Desperate Housewives, Dirty Sexy Money, Grey’s Anatomy, Lost, Private Practice, Pushing Daisies, Samantha Who? and Ugly Betty.

A sampling of those not mentioned include October Road, Carpoolers, Cavemen, Boston Legal, Men in Trees and Women’s Murder Club.  (Big Shots is apparently dead already.)
