NBC Cuts 'Love Bites' Episode Order

Becki Newton'Love Bites,' NBC's hourlong romantic comedy that has been plagued with mishaps, can add one more to its belt: The network has cut the episode order from 13 to nine.

According to Vulture, production on the series will end next week.

'Love Bites' was supposed to premiere during the Fall 2010 season in the Thursdays at 10PM time slot, but series star Becki Newton's ('Ugly Betty') pregnancy and Cindy Chupack's ('Sex and the City') departure as showrunner caused NBC to shift the series to midseason. Prior to the official midseason change, 'My Boys' star Jordana Spiro left 'Love Bites' due to her commitment to the since-canceled TBS comedy.

In July, 'Will & Grace' producers Jon Kinnally and Tracy Poust signed on as showrunners.

Vulture reports that NBC is still very much backing the series, but decided to cut the episode order once it made the decision to go with three hours of comedy on Thursdays starting in January.

The anthology series about love, which also features 'Heroes' veteran Greg Grunberg as a series regular, will feature a revolving door of guest stars.

NBC's new boss, Bob Greenblatt, will decide where to schedule the series.
