Beautiful Life Canceled by the CW Network
The new series Beautiful Life has been canceled by the CW network after only two episodes. Production on the Ashton Kutcher series was filiming Friday when they were told to shut down.
Wednesday's episode was watched by only 1 million viewers, and received only a 0.5 rating.
CW's Melrose Place has also had some trouble getting off the ground, but the Vampire Diaries seems to be going strong.
A rerun of Melrose Place will replace the timeslot on Wednesday left open by Beautiful Life.
The main driver behind the CW’s order to“TBL” was the similarity in setting with the network’s veteran reality series “America’s Next top Model,” which served as its lead-in on Wednesday.
“TBL” got a lot of pre-launch publicity stemming from the medical problems of star Mischa Barton.
