Can they do this to Jennifer Love Hewitt? Can they deprive a leading Generation Y icon of her weekly network TV outlet? Apparently so.
Fox today announced its new fall schedule and Hewitt’s show — the “Party of Five” spinoff, “Time of Your Life” — wasn’t on it. The network won’t tell you what that means. We will. She got axed.
Oh, the fates they can be cruel.
Was it only yesterday — or perhaps 15 minutes ago — that the one they call Love was the leading lady of her era?
Oh, well. Next!
Overall, Fox will introduce seven new series, including the “The $treet,” one of those young-people-today dramas that networks think are really cool until they realize nobody else does and they cancel the thing three weeks later (see: “Wasteland,” “The Heights,” “The Round Table,” etc.).
Other shows getting pink-slipped by the network are: the young-people-today drama “Get Real” and the animated comedy “Family Guy.”
