Hardly Knew You: The Short-Lived Shows of 2010

by Rich Keller, posted Dec 20th 2010 5:40PM
'Lone Star,' which garnered huge pre-season buzz, was cancled by FOX after only two episodes.Not everything is a long-running classic in the fickle world that is television. You may feel that your show has the right mix of acting, writing and directing to be a favorite for indefinite first-run and syndicated airings, but the viewers may have other ideas.

And when that happens, your show could disappear before the cover art is even dry for the complete series DVD set.

The year 2010 had no shortage of these short timers. In fact, the 2010-2011 season has already seen not one, not two but three series that bowed out after only two episodes. This, despite long-promoted hype and pre-season buzz. Mentioned here are the 2010 programs that had shorter runs than the presidency of William Henry Harrison.

Jules Kirby on 'High Society'The staff in Jules Kirby's sphere have finally had it with the rude socialite. Friend of Manhattan's "Park Avenue Princess" Tinsley Mortimer, Jules has been a controversial presence on the 'High Society' (Wed., 9:30PM ET on CW) reality show since its debut last month. Her foul mouth, bigoted remarks, N bombs, Hitler impersonations and talking down to the help were finally too much on last night's episode.

After "certain instances" in the hotel, she was escorted out and asked to never return. It appears her main response was, "Where's the (bleep) cab?" Nice.

High Society, Jules impersonates HitlerThat Jules is pretty classy on 'High Society' (Wed., 9:30PM ET on The CW), isn't she? After meeting a guy with a German name, she immediately launches into a totally inappropriate impersonation of Hitler. Yes, Hitler!

Really, Jules? You don't like being told what to do? Even when you're making a complete ass of yourself? You might want to re-think that.
