TNT Pulls the Plug on ‘HawthoRNe’

HawthoRNeAmerica will now have one less hospital drama/procedural to turn to: TNT canceled HawthoRNe. It seems that few people were turning to this show in the first place, hence its cancellation.

Jada Pinkett Smith played Christina Hawthorne, Chief Nursing Officer at a Virginia hospital. As is the case with all medical series, the show exhibited her conquest to help patients while being at odds with hospital regulations. Furthermore, Hawthorne’s personal life was shown to be heavily influenced (often hindered) by her career, which is also a common theme among hospital programs.

The third season of HawthoRNe concluded on August 16, and ended on a cliffhanger. It seems as though we will never find out who shot Nick, what will become of the relationship between Christina and Tom, or how long it will be before we’re blessed with another show title featuring mid-word capitalization.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
