Busy Philipps Reveals Shocking Way 'Busy Tonight' Cancellation Was Handled By Sharing Text From Head of Network

Busy Philipps is telling all about the cancellation of her amazing talk show, Busy Tonight, which ran briefly on the E! network in 2019.

“On APRIL 5, 2019! I flew to Dallas to shoot commercials over the weekend for Michael’s. When my plane took off, the song that came on shuffle was my favorite Deerhunter song He Would Have Laughed. I felt like it was a good sign. When I landed, my manager texted me to call her. Which I did. And she told me E! would not renew my show after the order was finished in a month. It was effectively cancelled,” Busy wrote in a post on her Instagram.

“I was blindsided, especially since the last text I had from the head of E(who’s now gone🤷‍♀️) was about marketing for busy tonight that he was excited to tell me about. Anyway. I did what anyone would do. I sat in the lobby of the hotel in Dallas and ordered three tequilas…I waited for a call or email from someone at E, which never came so I sent a text to the head of the network that truly makes me lol to this day…,” Busy continued.

The text she shared features the conversation she references above, where the head of E! is trying to share marketing ideas. The next text is initiated by Busy after she found out her show was cancelled.

“Anyway. It all started to become clear and I knew things were going to be better than fine. Right before the show was finished, I found a letter my daughter wrote to E! and I feel like as this year is almost over, the decade is closing, it’s the right time to post the letter…my girl knows something about her mom- I work hard AF and love to prove people wrong and finally, the men will always try to f*ck you over so fuck em and figure out something else,” Busy added.

Busy also included the text of the letter, which you can check out in the gallery.
