The Beautiful Life -- Canceled!

The Beautiful Life -- Canceled!

Ashton Kutcher‘s scripted model-centric drama The Beautiful Life has been canceled since this past Wednesday’s episode was seen by just 1 million viewers.

After two episodes, The CW gave it the axe, making it the first cancellation of the fall season. According to THR, production was halted Friday while filming its seventh episode.

The news comes shortly after the announcement that the docusoap series about Manhattan socialite Tinsley Mortimer was picked up.

FYI: If you want to save the show, you can sign the petition to revive it!

    I knew this show would get axed after the first promo I saw. All they need to do is can Melrose Place, and I will be happy :)

    Now hopefully they’ll start showing Life Unexpected. THAT looks like a good show!!

    I never watched this show, but I guess they didn’t have the same pact with satan that has kept “One tree hill” on the air for a millenia.

    Whatever, they’re young and pretty. I’m sure they’ll find something else to do.

    I really don’t like Ashton Kutcher, but I gave it a chance and watched the first episode. It didn’t grab me, and I didn’t watch this week. It’s just how it goes.

    Nahla Says:

    WOW that was fast! Hope Mischa doesn’t get back to a psychiatric institution after that. Why? I mean, they didn’t give this show one single chance?? Two episode and they axe it??!! wtf?! Never saw it though…….I guess it was too horrible or people hated the promo and didn’t waste their time watching it……I also feel bad for Corbin Blue, but as someone else said, these actors are young and pretty, they’ll find some other stuff to do. Lol @ #14

    corbin purple was the token black. poor nappy headed kid. oh well! hahahahahaha..
    funny thing is, beside mushy.. i actually didn’t hate the show. that clark kent look alike was ok with me. oh well.

    Now Mischa Barton has all the time in the world to go rehab. She should go there PRONTO.
    And after rehab I suggest she invest in acting classes.

    Looking for age gap relationships? My friends recommended me a best destination ~~~ ~~~ It’s a nice and free place for Younger Women and Older Men, or Older Women and Younger Men, to interact with each other. Age gap is not a problem there. You may wanna check it out and tell your friends.

    Aw, poor widdle Mischa, what will she do now? Grow up, maybe? LOL, I was just kidding. These losers only know how to be enabled and taken care of, not how to deal with grown-up situations. 3-2-1-, back to rehab we go, we go!

  39. 39
    Dank Says:

    I think Mischa needs a new career path, house painter maybe? Every show she touches turns to ****. I know i know, you’re all going to say well the OC was popular and on for a while and you’d be right, but they did kill off her character and it was actually a god awful show.

    BliZzarD Says:

    -And I thought Sara Paxton last tweet was too desperate:

    “Attention #TBL fans! If you love the beautiful life keep us on the air! Spread the word about the show! Set your tivos! Thank u fans! Xoxo”

    C’mon, it’s just started I thought =P

    I watched it and cringed when Mischa opened her mouth. She doesn’t have a good rep anymore and is the reason why a lot of people wouldn’t tune in!

    I had a feeling this show would get cancelled, but thought it would last longer than 2 episodes… Mischa Barton is not the best actress out there – she ruined The OC!

    blowmeimnick Says:

    BabyJane14 : your a total toolbag, clearly you like to watch trash like TBL & thank god its cancelled. Mischa Barton’s hot though, they were gonna cast her as Serena Van Der Woodsen but she denied the offer. she CLEARLY made a huge mistake!

    Not surprised. The acting was horrid and the storylines were contrived. But it’s still pretty early for a cancellation.

    Tom Says:

    This had more to do with Politics more than anything else.

    1million views for a start up isnt bad especially when there are sitcoms that dont pull in that many viewers every night

    They realized the show had the potential to become its go -2 show and have melrose place take the back seat……they decided against it

    Rarely if ever does a start up sitcom get AXED after just 2 shows…Guarantee u it was SABOTAGE!!!!!

  54. 54
    Blair Says:

    I think the show didn’t hv a lot of viewers because it’s on the same time as glee.

    zena Says:

    And yet Melrose Place survives, with ONLY 300,000 more viewers. Sigh, what a terrible line up for the CW this year.

    I bet they’re seriously regretting not moving forward with Body Politic.

    will they even show the rest 5 episodes that are done?

    Brandon Says:

    Ashton should know better to trust the CW — the same network that cancels his first show Beauty and the Geek! That’s strike two for Ashton…

    What the CW should’ve done is to NOT CANCEL Everybody Hates Chris and The Game! They need to get their act together.

    Can you say “career suicide”?

    Haven’t Heard anything about it from noone else. Can’t believe it until i see it. Really love the show and it was great. Since you jj are sending bad news.Don’t see New york ilove you going anywhere either since you hype it up weeks ago. Knowing that rachel bilson is not the star ain that.Like to know how you’re going to act when it comes out at movies when hardly noone will get to see it. Need not to put it out there. letpeople find out for themselvesSee rachel bilson movie career going anywhere all she did was cause trouble this with her lies She didn’t even try and get on tv series like she is getting a movie deal that didn’t happen.all she did was hang around hang hope that he get her something.At least mischa did and do something. Don’t belive nothing you say on your site anymore.Since you went and lied about rachel and hayden realaionship. Just because you say it don’t make it trueJust have to wait and see what happen I’m sure things will turn around for her. Must have been nothing to repot on rachel bilson on her shopping or her break-up with hayden weeked or whatever she be doing with herself these days without work.Really love the show and hope someone pick it up.It tell the true.

    When will Mischa catch a break goshdarnit acting might not be the best thing for her. I wonder if she’d ever try a music career.

    This gets cancelled, but a lot of other crap is still on the CW. Gossip Girl is most likely next, since it started out good and is not just boring.

    madison, Says:

    i loved it, it was so good.
    just because Mischa sucked, doesn’t mean the show should be cancelled. I feel bad for Sara Paxton. She did so well in it. And it had a really good concept.

    lmao @ mischa
    damn, i just hope she doesnt overdose again

    lily Says:

    I like Sara Paxton and i like Corbin Bleu so i feel bad for them. They are talented..and super nice. But i agree…i watched some of it and it didnt really catch my attention. They should also cancel Melrose Place..that show is boring too. And One Tree Hill..oh gosh never watched it..never will. WHACK!!

  78. 78
    The CW are wussies! Says:

    They changed their whole fall line up with stupid & empty vapid shows and cancelled 2 of the best shows that was on their network “Everybody Hates Chris” and “The Game”. Especially “The Game” when it was really getting good! Hell even “America’s Next Top Model” is getting tiresome.

    Maybe now they will reconsider and bring back “The Game”.

    One of their best shows yet!

    Dumbass CW!

  79. 79
    reality bites Says:

    Maybe there’s no place now for those talentless wannebees that only have a ‘pretty?’ face to recommend them. Acting is about art, not about vapid, shallow manniquins who couldn’t act their way out of a paper bag. People are beginning to wise up and switch off.

    ZombieGirl Says:

    Sorry, but in all the commercials I’ve seen for the Beautiful Life, the acting was HORRENDOUS. The commercials are supposed to show the best parts! I could barely watch the first couple of minutes of the show….
    I am not surprised at all.

  81. 81
    Rebecka Says:

    It was not the best show ever but definitely better than Melrose or 90210. How come these, especially the latter, are not off the air yet??? Maybe the time slot (Glee rocks!!!), maybe people are tired of Misha Barton and Ashton Kutcher.
    I didn’t love but enjoyed the first two episodes. Thought it had potential.
    Oh well, life goes on.

    Amanda Says:

    #13, Melrose Place has high ratings. It’s been picked up. And #21, you’re an idiot. GG is a million times better than this crap. The first episode? It was ridiculously tedious. The plot was going nowhere. Thank God it got canned. Lame, medicore, bullshit.

  86. 86
    Amanda Says:

    @lily: Don’t plan on them cutting OTH. That’s on Monday’s anyway, dumbass. It has no relevance to the cancellation of this retarded show.
