You Don't Know Jack, and That's a Crying Shame:
It's the best show people stupidly ignored this season, which is why it breaks my heart to tell you sources have confirmed Jack & Bobby is a goner.
Earlier this week, when I called J&B boss Greg Berlanti hoping for good news, he told me, "You're so sweet to be holding vigil. It's like day 14 of Terry Schiavo, and you're not giving up. No decision has been made yet, and we haven't been told. But as the clock ticks, I can tell you, it doesn't look good. The network has been so supportive. I think everyone's sort of scratching their heads as to why it's not doing better than it's doing, and everyone loves it and acknowledges that the acting is superb and there are great stories, but it may very well be our fate to join the ranks of My So-Called Life and Freaks and Geeks."
That damn show. So good, it makes me cry nearly every week. And I swear I was all choked up by the end of Berlanti's call. (Yes, I'm that much of a sap and a fan.)
Still, please keep in mind that nothing is official yet. We'll get the final word on all the shows starting Monday in New York City, when the networks unveil their fall schedules.
