TBS finally admits "My Boys" is toast
TBS waited until two days after telecasting the season finale of "My Boys," to finally confirm the show is dead.
To be perfectly accurate, a TBS rep told The TV Column she could not confirm the show was canceled -- but she could confirm "it's not coming back."
Yes, this is what it's like trying to cover TV.
With the show widely presumed to be history, Jordana Spiro, who starred as a sports writer in "My Boys," and Kyle Howard -- he was the good looking one of the "Boys" -- were both signed to star on new NBC series for the coming TV season.
Spiro was going to co-star with "Ugly Betty's" Becki Newton, in an anthology series called "Love Bites" which was going to get one of NBC's very best time slots: Thursdays at 10.
Howard, meanwhile, was going to be in the ensemble cast of a mid-season comedy called "Perfect Couples," which NBC says is about "the misadventures of three engaging couples as they struggle to find out what makes the ideal relationship - and how to maintain it through humorous trial and error."
Anyway, both stars had to bail out of their big career break because they were being held to their "My Boys" contracts.
And now, it's over. Five days before the start of the broadcast network's 2010-11 TV season, in which they might have become The Next Big Thing. Okay, not all that likely on new NBC series, but you get my point.
