Television Travel Update: We Learned To Spell "Laughlin" In Vain
So much for our powers of prognostication: The new CBS series "Viva Laughlin" (which we covered last week) has been canceled, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
our 6.8 million viewers' deep desire to see Hugh Jackman singing and dancing every week, CBS pulled the plug after only airing the pilot and the second episode "Would I Lie To You?" That was fast enough to garner it the crown of first scripted cancellation of the 2007-2008 season, though Fox's reality series "Nashville" and the CW viral clip show "Online Nation" were felled first.
In a truly Jaunted-worthy twist, "Laughlin"'s time slot will be taken over by "The Amazing Race", starting November 4th. But that's small consolation for our musical-loving hearts.
