News Briefs: MTV Cancels The Inbetweeners

  • 41comments

BUSINESS TIME

... As expected, MTV will not be asking for a second round of its scripted comedy The Inbetweeners. The show was a remake of the British series of the same name, but suffered from crummy ratings and never really stood a chance. [Deadline Hollywood]

... ABC has asked for more episodes of Malibu Country and Last Man Standing, its Friday pairing of torture comedy. Both shows will add five episodes to their 13-episode orders, and because they both started later than most, the orders will fill out their seasons. [ABC via press release]

... Fox has rescheduled Touch again. Instead of returning February 1, the show will push back to February 8 and air back-to-back episodes. The show was originally slotted to return this fall, but was bumped to early February. [Fox via press release]

... Syfy has ordered three more reality programs, crushing our hopes that its reality experiment wouldn't work. Darnit! Ghost Mine (January 16) follows a group of miners who team up with paranormal investigators to get scared by things that aren't ghosts. Stranded (February 27) takes amateur paranormal investigators and puts them is seriously haunted houses (except they probably aren't actually haunted). Notorious Hauntings takes a closer look at some of history's most famous paranormal legends like Dracula. [Syfy via press release]


CASTING NEWS

... Former House star Lisa Edelstein will guest-star on Showtime's House of Lies as a political consultant who has a run-in with Marty. What kind of run-in? Violent? Sexy? Both? Probably both. [Showtime via press release]

... After stuffing his sneakers in his mouth with his feet still in them by calling his show "filth," Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones will reportedly leave the series after this season, putting the entire show's future in jeopardy until it finds another anyone to replace him. [TMZ]

... Southland went shopping at the Former Teen Idol Shoppe and has booked One Tree Hill's Chad Michael Murray for a few episodes. He'll play Dave Mendoza (Mendoza? Really?), a loose-cannon cop who probably likes to throw his badge across the room just to show how loose he can be. [TV Line]

... MTV's Teen Wolf has added Charlie and Max Carver to its cast. The hunky twins were recently seen on Desperate Housewives as the Scavo Twins. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Smallville and V alum Laura Vandervoort (meow!) will guest-star on CSI: NY as a pretty lady. To be more specific, she'll play a woman fresh out of prison who's looking to get revenge on her no-good boyfriend. [TV Line]
