    No, they've been renewed. I know that they said they've run out of Jenny stories and are going off-script. I think that was as of this season, but maybe it will be as of next season, I don't remember.

    There were only 3 "Midwife" books I believe, so I can understand they would. Her fourth book was on end of life care and her experiences.

    Did anyone see Piven on Kelly and Michael today? Was Kelly kidding when she told him he had a mean English accent? He then informed her he played an American on the show. Was that said on purpose? Awkward. lol

    It was awkward BUT I loved it. Talk show hosts often get caught phoning it in. This is an example of Kelly not doing her homework and assuming Jeremy spoke with an English accent because the show was filmed in England with all English actors.

    Not as bad as the time Kathie Lee asked Martin Short how his wife was....and she had died some months earlier. This is why they have research staff on every show -I guess Kelly wasn't listening.

    I think Wendy Williams takes the award for being the most uniformed talk show host. Her and Barbara Walters. lol

    Why, in the world, are these talk show hosts in the Masterpiece thread???


    Nevermind....this started with a mention of Piven.
