'LipStick Jungle' Renewed for 2nd Season!
Post by: Sal
NBC is expected to confirm this afternoon that they are renewing the Candace Bushnell dramedy "Lipstick Jungle" for a second season. The series may therefore be the winner in the "cashmere war" among "Sex and the City" wannabes.
Over its 7-week run "Lipstick Jungle" averaged 6.85 million viewers on Thursdays at 10pm and currently ranks 98th on the season-to-date chart. ABC's "Cashmere Mafia" averaged 6.13 million viewers on Wednesdays at 10pm and ranks 125th.
Although ABC insiders declined comment, "Cashmere Mafia" is not expected to make the cut for a fall renewal. Its poor ratings were actually somewhat inflated by the pilot episode which aired after the last episode of "Desperate Housewives" in January.
The season finale of "Mafia" scored a little over 5 million viewers, while "Lipstick Jungle" managed to lure over 7 million viewers.
