Outsourced is cancelledThe networks are cleaning house in preparation for next week's Upfronts presentations of new shows, cancelling existing shows faster than anyone can keep up.

The latest shows to get shut down? NBC has axed freshman Thursday night comedies 'Outsourced' and 'Perfect Couples,' as well as drama 'Chase' and reality series 'School Pride' and 'America's Next Great Restaurant.'

While rapid-fire press releases and rumor confirmations have been the norm for getting the news out the past few days, 'Outsourced' star Rizwan Manji actually took to Twitter before news of their cancellation broke:

@Riz_Manji: "Before it hits the trades-Outsourced isnt coming back.Sad to see it go-hopeful that this opportunity was a step towards others! Thanx all!"

The Show Girl Gets 'Dirty' with Mike Rowe, Talks 'In Treatment' & 'School Pride' (VIDEO)

Mike Rowe, 'Dirty Jobs'Mike Rowe does a lot of 'Dirty Jobs,' but this week I get him to do the one job that millions of people around the world do every single day, often multiple times a day. Any guesses? He also shares cold, hard cell phone picture evidence (shown here) that a lemur bite is serious business, and says he'd love to romance the main character on one of TV's funniest shows.

I've also got details on the latest season of 'In Treatment,' including new castmembers Debra Winger and Amy Ryan and what the airing schedule is like this year, since they love to change it up and confuse us all.

Then I catch up with Cheryl Hines and Denise Cramsey to talk about their new reality-renovation show 'School Pride,' which they say has "the biggest impact of any renovation show ever" ... and judging by the emotion it stirs in me, I might have to agree.
