The 'Lipstick Jungle' must be saved!

Lipstickjungle_lAccording to reporting by EW’s own Lynette Rice, it seems NBC’s power-femme drama, Lipstick Jungle, might not be headed to Canceled TV Show Heaven like we had previously been led to believe.

I’m just going to go right out and say it: HALLELUJAH!

Okay, so the show, which stars Brooke Shields, Kim Raver, and Lindsay Price, got off to a bit of a shaky start when it premiered last February. Much like the short-lived ABC series Cashmere Mafia, it felt like it was hanging on a little too tightly to the (expensive) shoe strings left behind by our beloved Sex and the City. Only the story lines on Lipstick weren’t nearly as relatable as the ones on SATC, instead they were unrealistic (seriously, who goes to all the way to Paris just to have dinner?) and just plain annoying.

Then, as the first season was wrapping up, I got majorly sucked into the show. The women started to have smarter and more engaging story arcs that kept me wanting more. I mean, how couldn’t I feel sympathetic for Nico (Raver) when her husband suffered a heart attack while she was out fooling around with her much younger beau? Talk about guilt.

My love for Lipstick continued to grow throughout its second season, and while I’ll admit that mostly has to do with the fact that I am obsessed with Victory’s (Price) eclectic and chic style, it’s also because the show is actually a lot of fun to watch. Needless to say, the buzz that the series still has a chance to be renewed has given me a buzz as well.

So fellow Lipstick fans, now’s your chance to share the reasons why you’re passionate about the show below, and then all we have to do is convince the suits at NBC not to make a huge mistake. Oh, and if you’re a hater — please, enlighten us.

    Please NBC- stop taking away the good shows! Let Lipstick Jungle and Friday Night Lights flourish!

  • Kelly

    I LOVE Lipstick Jungle!!! Especially Victory Ford’s character and maybe that’s because I adore Lindsay Price, but I’m totally sucked in. And who doesn’t love Andrew McCartney? Ah…reminds me of the 80’s. I also like Kim Raver. Brooke Shields is okay and sometimes her character frustrates me, but as a whole…I love the show and hope that it continues!!!

    Please keep Lipstick Jungle on the air! It is a great show and I think if you put it on another night besides Friday it will do even better.

  • Jen

    Hi, I’m Jen and I’m a Lipstick Jungle addict. It’s been a week since my last viewing and NBC wants to cancel the show. PLEASE NOOOOOOOO!!!!!

  • vickicoots

    Please save this wonderful show. The writing is excellent!!

    Lindsay, I echo most of your sentiments here. But I found the entirety of the first season unwatchably bad, but decided to give the second season a chance when they kept getting great guest stars (MTM! Rosie Perez!), only to find that the show had improved by leaps and bounds. By the “Sisterhood of the Travelling Prada” episode, I was hooked. The show is no longer hokey…it’s naturally funny and interesting. And I actually like the characters…who knew?
    I’d like to see the show renewed for a third season, though with five hours cut from the primetime slate for Leno I doubt it will actually happen, because I think the show could get even better given the chance.

    PLEASE don’t cancel Lipstick Jungle. When all that’s on television is reality shows, it’s so refreshing to have a least one drama that is filled with great story lines and is fun for women. Men too, my husband loves the women!! I agree it started out a little slow, but it just keeps getting better and better. PLEASE NBC…keep this show on TV!!

  • P

    I love this show. Please don’t make the mistake of taking it off the air.

    LIPSTICK JUNGLE IS AMAZING! lindsay price and kim raver are incredible. I WILL NOT SURVIVE IF IT’S CANCELLED. too far? okay, i’ll survive. but one question: HOW IS GHOST WHISPERER STILL ON THE AIR? why won’t people tune in for good television!?

  • Felicity

    Please save it! It really is a good show and there is nothing else on TV quite like it. I was sad to realize today that there will be no new ep of LP tonight.

  • asheen

    I’m not one to typically get sucked in, but I have to say, I’m not ashamed to say that I am addicted to this show! Hearing it was cancelled was horrible, and then seeing the last two episodes was just a tease! NBC should not cancel this show, it’s addicting and has real-life undertones, even if the people in the show are a little more upscale than the viewers–it lets us dream, doesn’t it?!

  • Suzi

    My friends and I love this show. When we heard it was going to be cancelled we could not understand why. I am for SAVING LIPSTICK JUNGLE!!
