HBO cans Lisa Kudrow's bittersweet comedy about a sitcom star's reality show.

The Comeback won't come back

Cable giant HBO Monday axed The Comeback, a mockumentary comedy starring Lisa Kudrow as a has-been actress seeking to revive her career. In the show, Kudrow plays the character of Valerie Cherish, star of the fictional '80s sitcom I'm It. The faux reality show The Comeback chronicles Cherish's return to television in the fake sitcom Room and Bored, which is populated by scathing depictions of Hollywood personality types.

The former Friends star also created the show with production partner Michael Patrick King. Its 13-episode run ended September 4. Said an HBO spokeswoman, "We've looked at our schedule, and given our future commitments, we felt we would not be able to give the show the support it needed."

In July, HBO canceled the flagging supernatural drama Carnivale, which had struggled through two expensive seasons without finding a large audience. The Comeback ...

Fans of canceled shows go down fighting

Everything good must come to an end, but don't tell that to dedicated fans of canceled television shows. In what has become a time-honored tradition, groups of diligent folks are banding together and attempting to sway the corporate giants who care only about ratings. Sometimes, it works (Family Guy); most of the time, it doesn't (Angel, Miracles, Farscape, Ed...).

Fans of HBO's Carnivàle have flooded HBO with homemade tarot cards, hoping another season of the show is in their future. In the case of ABC's Eyes, almost 7,000 people have signed an online petition urging ABC to show the five unaired episodes of the private-eye series. Devout followers of CBS' Joan of Arcadia, who call themselves "Arcadia's Army," have started mailing strings of yarn to other networks in the hopes that one of them will knit a new season out of them.

Carnivale. The credits alone were the most costly and timely to make. The show does not lack in the quality that the credits bring. Set in the 1930s Dust Bowl, 18-year old Ben Hawkins finds himself all alone in this world when his mother passes on. But a travelling Carnivale takes him in. We also see the story of Brother Justin, a priest who is trying to find his way in the world. Little do Ben and Justin know, but they are to fight in a biblical battle. With help on the side (Ben with the carnie folk (Sofie, Libby, Apollonia, Ruthie, Samson, Lila, Lodz, Management) and Justin with his sister, Iris) they find out which side each are on and try to battle with the other for what they believe.moreless
