NBC Moves 'Love Bites' to Midseason; 'Apprentice' to Fill Timeslot

Love BitesTalk about a pregnant pause: According to the Ausiello Files, NBC has shifted its upcoming love anthology series 'Love Bites' to midseason, because star Becki Newton ('Ugly Betty') is pregnant with her first child and Cindy Chupack ('Sex and the City') has decided to step down as showrunner.

'Love Bites' was expected to air Thursdays this fall in NBC's prime 10PM timeslot.

"Launching an anthology series, which breaks the form in so many ways, is a huge undertaking, and I strongly feel that I can be most helpful not showrunning, but writing. It just become clear that for several reasons, some of them personal, this change (and a little more time) is what we need to launch this show properly," Chupack said in a statement.

According to the report, NBC will instead air a brand-new season of 'The Apprentice,' which is already well into production.

Meanwhile, as previously reportedly, co-star Jordana Spiro is leaving the show due to her commitment to the TBS comedy series 'My Boys.'

Why can't she both showrun and write? Many showrunners write for their own shows... Damon Lindelof, Carlton Cuse, Diablo Cody, the Glee guys, just to name a few off the top of my head.

I'm sure that she has her reasons! She states that there are personal reasons that she feels makes it better to only do the one and not both. Remember, she is a person who has a life outside of her job, maybe she needs time for family as well!
