Jennifer Love Hewitt’s TV Show Cancelled

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Drama, Prime Time, Cancellations, Gossip,

Jennifer Love HewittJennifer Love Hewitt's TV show The Client List has been cancelled amidst a creative standoff.

The actress' raunchy series - which sees her play a masseuse who provides her clients extra services in order to make ends meet - has been axed after two seasons by Lifetime following claims the star reportedly clashed with producers over who would be the father of her pregnant character Riley's child.

Jennifer, who is an executive producer on the series, is pregnant in real life with her co-star and fiance Brian Hallisay's baby and was eager for his character - who is her on-screen husband - to father the child. Show bosses were less than impressed with the suggestion and Lifetime refrained from renewing the show, which wrapped its second season in June, until the creative dispute was settled.

According to Deadline, the differences became "too much" for the channel and producer Sony Pictures TV, and both sides came to a "mutual decision" to end the series.

2011 Golden Globe Nominations (TV)

Boardwalk Empire

The Golden Globe contenders for the 2010-11 season were officially announced Tuesday morning in Beverly Hills by Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel and Blair Underwood.

Last year's Best Comedy Series winner, Glee, lead all television programs with a total of five nominations. Five series -- 30 Rock, Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, The Good Wife and Mad Men -- tied for second place with three nods each.

Here are some of the notable omissions/inclusions from this year's list of nominees:

  • The Good Wife was the only non-cable series to be recognized for Best Drama.
  • The Walking Dead replaced that other horror series (True Blood), giving AMC two nominations in the Drama category.
  • The limitations of the Best Supporting Actor category meant only two acting noms for the cast of Modern Family.
  • Jennifer Love Hewitt has found herself pitted against Claire Danes ... and Dame Judi Dench.

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards -- hosted again by Ricky Gervais -- will air Jan. 16 on NBC.

(You can find the full list of nominees after the jump. Click here for the film nominations.)

The 61st Primetime Emmy Awards

61st Annual Emmy Awards

Could the be another year for firsts?

Around this same time last September, the execs of basic cable were thrilled to see one of their own finally win the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series (Mad Men).

The 60th Primetime Emmy Awards

60th Primetime Emmy Awards logo

Even though the previous television season was marred by the annoying writers’ strike, I find myself really excited for the . Not only will this ceremony give us a chance to start anew, it’ll be the academy’s chance to celebrate what’s new.

Tonight, two basic cable shows (Damages, Mad Men) will get a chance to win for Outstanding Drama Series. (That would be an Emmy first.) Meanwhile, nominees in several categories will have an opportunity to compete in a Sopranos-less environment. An added bonus? A new category. This year, reality show hosts will finally be acknowledged for their programming contributions as well.

So who won? Who lost? Who ran up and grabbed the award even though they didn’t win? Read our West Coast play-by-play account of this evening’s telecast and find out!

This Week on TV (4/21-4/27)

Ugly Betty, America Ferrera

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (4/21)
  • Gossip Girl (CW, 8pm):  New episode.  “A dethroned Blair musters up the strength to head back to school, and Jenny tries to keep up with the financial demands of the in-crowd.”  Mondays are always better when other people are miserable.
  • Deal or No Deal (NBC, 8pm):  George Bush provides support to a war vet going for the million.  After three tours in Iraq, the President figured it was the least he could do.
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30):  If you can’t handle the thought of humming a tune about sandcastles over and over again, this might not be the episode for you.
  • The Bachelor: London (ABC, 10pm):  “Matt accompanies Amanda, Chelsea, Noelle and Shayne to their hometowns.”  Being allowed to live in the U.S. takes more than just a sham marriage.  It means faking it with her family too.
