Ashton's Show Cancelled! Mischa's Out Of Work!

After just TWO episodes!

The first casualty of the new fall TV season!

We saw this one coming a mile away!

The Ashton Kutcher-produced and Mushy Fartone-starring show, The Beautiful Life, is dead.

The CW just cancelled the drama about pretty models after some very ugly ratings.

To be fair, they didn't really give it a chance.

Cancelled after just two episodes????

Ouch!

Production on the NYC-shot show, which had been filming its seventh episode, was shut down Friday.

Hopefully this won't give Mushy another tooth ache for reals!

    LOL!!!

    TALK ABOUT EMBARRASSING!

    Not surprised though, the show was BEYOND shitty….almost as shitty as Slimey…



  2. 2

    NO!!!!!
    Damnit it was a good show! Fuckin' A! Not fair to Sara Paxton she was fucking awesome in that show!

    -_- at least I wont have to flip back and forth between this and Modern Family again tho -_-



  3. 3

    awwh! that sucks!! sorry ashton! i don't really know who mischa is… i never watch the oc. but that really sucks… two episodes? they could have a least gave it 5.



  4. 4

    but it's reasonable i guess. cw can't afford bad ratings anymore. they're doing horribly.



  5. 5

    I think Mischa should be doing movies..she has that movies actress quality..like playing a heroine chick. I'm not dissing her, but she has that bad girl movie star look. I still think she will succeed. The publicity she's been getting lately in the press didn't help this TV show.



  6. 6

    I know that Mischa is annoying but why is Perez hating on her? She is already having a though time he should back off.

    Not a fan on Barton… Just being a Human.

    WHO CANCELS A SHOW AFTER JUST 2 EPISODES?!?!?! and it was up against other good shows on other channels. this sucks for all the people involved with it because they're now unemployed. WTF?



  8. 8

    I watched it and although it was not as bad a slimmm_EEE, aka the worst thing ever introduced (thanks btw fatass), it was damn near close. I like Mischa but her acting on TBL WAS SO SO SO SO SO bad. So was everyone else, plus Corbin Blu is annoying.



  9. 9

    Well its not like no one saw this coming. Old news if you ask me. Lol….



  10. 10

    they didnt even give it a chance!
    i agree that it was a terriable show,
    but the second episode was better than the 1st,
    they really did cut it off too quickly!



  11. 11

    Didn't watch it and don't care.



  12. 12

    I never saw the show, but I wanted to. Kind of wish I had so I could have a better comment



  13. 13

    Too bad, they really should give shows a better chance though.



  14. 14

    I'm proud to say I've never seen the show, but anytime anyone loses a job it hurts. One can imagine the magnitude of that feeling when this occurs in the public eye.
    Resilience is a virtue, dust the dirt off and continue on with life.



  15. 15

    awwh sucks but still i watched d second episode and couldnt take anymore of mischa acting



  16. 16

    Oh,I'm embarassed. I thought it was for another episode of Punk'd.



  17. 17

    Wow that was so fast!!



  18. 18

    Please, remember that Heather Graham T.V. show that got cancelled after 1 episode??? 2 episodes is nothing. Networks wants ratings FAST!!!



  19. 19

    BUT I LOVED IT!!! IT WAS SOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOD! omg will they play next weeks episode still :(



  20. 20

    I was going to watch the Beautiful Life but I never did… She should have stuck w/ The OC



  21. 21

    LOL Yeah that really sucks. I saw this coming, but after 2 episodes? LOL Anyway it's not Mischa's fault. Ashton sucks, lol.

  22. YUCK says – reply to this


    22

    anything recent that ashton does sucks, he cant come up with anything great. punked was on way longer than it should have.



  23. 23

    OHH SHIT! i REALLY liked this show, I was actually looking foward to see the other episodes! SUCKS big time!:(



  24. 24

    WHAT? i actually liked it- WTF. I loved mischa barton in THE OC- okay okay she's got SERIOUS issues obv. but hey the girl is a good actress. Ashton Kutcher was SO LAME by cancelling it so soon…. :-l



  25. 25

    they should have never dropped The game…really good show..CW doesn't know what they are doing!



  26. 26

    that sux i was starting to like it. cw is really suckin this year big time!!



  27. 27

    I SAW THE SHOW AND IT WAS HORRIBLE. BAD ACTING ON MISHA'S PART. RIDICULOUS STORYLINES. EVERYTHING WAS SO BORING AND DONE. NOT SURPRISED ABOUT THIS.



  28. 28

    the show wasnt THAT bad. if they gave it a bit of time, i think they could have had something decent come out if it. i've never heard of cancelling a show after 2 episodes, thats just stupid.



  29. 29

    annnnnd Mischa did pretty good on the show, stop hating perez.



  30. 30

    thats so extreme! i love nico tortorella, but whatever, CW is kinda cruel for give them just 2 episodes xD

  31. MP says – reply to this


    31

    I'm not interested in this show, however, this is a big reason why so many people don't watch the new shows that come out. Why bother watching something to begin with that may get yanked in 2 episodes? If Seinfeld was just coming out today it would have no shot. NBC stood behind that show and it picked up an audience a couple seasons after the pilot episode. Things are certainly different today.



  32. 32

    Who else saw this coming besides me? It comes on the same time as Glee; which is a very wonderful show by the way. I don't the show was bad, just on at the wrong time.



  33. 33

    oh i really liked it! boo



  34. 34

    i kinda liked it! been watching it online from the uk



  35. 35

    Here's a question for the networks: Why would consumers even bother to watch new programs when there is a high probability that they're going to be pulled after a few episodes? In the last two or three years there have been about 7 or 8 shows that I've invested time into and they've been yanked away after just enough episodes for me to get interested in the characters. That behavior is bullshit and it will completely undermine scripted television the way constant rebates killed the car business.

    LOL that's funny. Now if only

  37. auds says – reply to this


    37

    LOL that's funny! Now if only Melrose Place, One Tree Hill, ANTM, and 90210 would follow in their footsteps… Frankly I hope the CW crashes and burns after what they did to REAPER. REAPER was the most amazing show to be featured on the CW and they did nothing but fuck it over! No one watches that crappy station anymore.



  38. 38

    Re: zach swan

    I COMPLETELY agree!!



  39. 39

    I think Ashton is a good guy but hasn't he ever seen Zoolander? that's just way too much competition. there's simply no way to have a serious, long-term perspective on the fucking joke that is modeling. how could Ashton not know this when HE was a model. ANTM worked because viewers laughed at the people on it and it had 'spontaneous' conflicts. this thread will have a longer and more dynamic career than 98.73% of 'models' and, incidentally, this show.

    RIP TBL:

    it was just too ridiculously good looking.



  40. 40

    Woamn Hater - Perez is so happy!



  41. 41

    Re: Kode One – Smart and funny post!



  42. 42

    It looked good,but CW wants sky high ratings….



  43. 43

    I LOVED THIS SHOW!!!



  44. 44

    THIS IS A GREAT THING FOR HER! NO SHOW= NO MONEY AND NO MONEY= NO DRUGS!!!!! YAY! BUT OF COURSE SHE COULD START TRADING UNDER TABLE FAVORS FOR A LITTLE BIT OF COKE!!!



  45. 45

    now maybe mushy will never get another tv deal for the rest of her life and starve to death!



  46. 46

    ugh this is so sad i actually really liked the show it was very fashion oriented and there is not many of those on tv except gossip girl but not directly its a shame i liked it



  47. 47

    ehhh thats sux………………. i saw the 2 episodes though it was really bad



  48. 48

    i didnt think it was that bad. i refuse to pay for cable tv and with cw being one of the only channels i have, i watched both episodes. too bad. i would rather watch this than that piece of shit melrose place.



  49. 49

    pig goes in the mud, when she tires…..

    50

    I kinda liked the show



  51. 51

    I think if a show has to cancel in two episodes than it is bad marketing, not necessarily a bad show, I barely knew these shows were on tv. I heard about them, but was never aware when they we're coming out. The advertisers should have spent more (I never even saw a sneak preview of barton or elfman.

  52. breb says – reply to this


    52

    oooh i liked the show not fair why dont they cancel one treehill bitch.



  53. 53

    I loved the show it was good! if you compare it to Melrose Place (whose rating sucks too BTW) it's so much better!! The old Melrose place won't make the new one a hit, the CW has to get that, they should better find other show that are interesting in a creative point of view instead of wanting to do remakes and remakes whose rating sucks (Melrose place again and 90210) !!!



  54. 54

    Visually the show was impressive, but the storylines were just to boring. Mushy is beautiful and a pretty good actress, she deserves better than this show. Team Fartone



  55. 55

    jeez… didn't even know the new season had started yet. Got so used to being made to wait until October or January that I forgot September was the start of the new season. Gotta say… even if the show did suck, it's majorly stupid to cancel a show after just two episodes.
    Most shows need at least a year just to get up to speed, then another 2 or 3 to start getting really good at what they're doing.



  56. 56

    Poor guy, youve got to feel sry for him,
    Well to be fair, he couldn't get away with it,
    hes an actor, not a producer



  57. 57

    haha hahaha hahahahahahaaaa ha haha. now she'll have to go back to paying for drugs with sex:(



  58. 58

    It was horrendous. They probably should have tried it on a different night though. All the young people are watching Glee on Wednesdays.



  59. 59

    horrible i never got to see it :(



  60. 60

    Ok as I've already said yesterday. It's fcked up to cancel shows after 2 episodes. You gotta give them at least 5 to develop a proper story line -_-



  61. 61

    jeez pervez, that dress matches Drew's hair-do!



  62. 62

    Well That was expected. I could not make it past the first show. It actually put me to sleep.



  63. 63

    It wasn't that bad. ANd Sara paxton was good in it.



  64. 64

    I am not surprised it was canceled. In my opinion Ashton is no actor unless he plays a character close to his own personality like "That 70's Show" ouch! Maybe the guy is smarter than I give him credit for but that is what I think. I also think him and his wife are chasing each other's tails trying to stay in the business. Demi wants to be the housewife and have her man be the bread winner but I don't think that will work for much longer. With times as hard as they are don't be surprise if Demi goes back to work to support her and her man! Or is it her and her toy boy? Help me out here I never really did get the jest of this. Come on she gave up Bruce for that or did Bruce give up her that is an interesting concept to think about? But lets not forget they are just one big happy family! Who is pulling who's chain here? Their actors well at least 2 of them are - of course they can be in a room together and function like the happy clan and have pics taken hell I could do that for the sake of my kids!!



  65. 65

    You're happy because the show got cancelled and now Mischa is without a job what about all the other actors and the crew that worked on the show ? You don't want to loose your job in these times. You're a fucking douchebag for hoping that she looses her job I HOPE KARMA COMES YOUR WAY DIPSHIP



  66. 66

    I LITERALLY FELL ASLEEP 20 MINUTES INTO THE FIRST EPISODE..IT WAS THAT BAD !!



  67. 67

    Why Ashton, why Mischa, why the CW???? Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!????????? I was looking forward to this series, and i live from Norway, so i was thinking it probably would take some time for the series to come her, but now? It will never happend :(



  68. 68

    thank god.. finally cancelled the stupid ass show



  69. 69

    Doomed from the start



  70. 70

    Hey Perez, I love your site, but can't u give this girl a break? u need to share with us why u target certain celebrities……..i mean it would make for good reading, and we would understand your reason for bashing them so much.



  71. 71

    I was really enjoying this show!!!



  72. 72

    i didnt believe her as a model. i never payed attention to it even tho it was on.



  73. 73

    I happened to watch it. And I'm not surprised it got cancelled. I wouldn't blame i all on Mischa's acting though, she seemed to have tried. Overall, it was a very bad choice of actors, week storylines and not very believable. Producers have to realize that it takes a lot more than hiring some pretty faces and push the show down the vieweres thoat for their profit. Producing is serious work that requires research and a lot of fact gathering. And if you'renot willing to do that work, then don't expect for your show to work. I'm sorry Ashton, but the blame is on you this time.



  74. 74

    Perez, why do you hate Mischa so much? What did she ever do to you? She's talented but has a lot of demons. Leave her alone. Your post just smacks of self-satisfaction, like you are taking the utmost of pleasure that she lost her job. You have it really good right now, why do you take such a low road of hatred and cruelty?



  75. 75

    Ha ha, her imminent relapse….oops, I mean "toothache," should be VERY entertaining! Bitch has schizophrenia written all over her face. Ha ha, speaking of her face, remember she used to give head to Crisco Adler???? And that man does not have attractive genitals! I predict she blocks traffic at an intersection, naked, screaming, high as the sky. Ha ha….



  76. 76

    urgh, damn. I LIKED this show…. this pisses me off. They could have tried it in a different time slot.



  77. 77

    I don't actually give a damn about about the show - but please for the love of God leave that poor girl alone - you are just a catty, mean spirited bitch. She has some serious issues and will need ongoing help not pulling apart - stop revelling in other people's sorrow and misery.



  78. 78

    Re: jorobken – Since everyone else is having fun here except you, asshole, why don't you go somewhere else. Go somewhere else and hang yourself. Celebrities are idiots who deserve all the ridicule they get, and more. And trust me, none of them give a fuck about you ha ha.



  79. 79

    Dang.



  80. 80

    The pilot was horrible. Though Sara Paxton was cute, I hope she lands on a more successful show. I couldn't watch another episode. The writing was an epic fail.



  81. 81

    They should have had Ashton Katcher in a g-string tied up to the 4 corners of his bed. woops , did I say that?



  82. 82

    Maybe if they got rid of Mishca and changed the time to when GLEE wasn't on, more people would watch it.



  83. 83

    heard her do an interview on some music channel and god damn her voice is gravelly, like one of those lesbian 200 lb women who smoke 3 packs a day. How old is she again ? 24-25 ? rofl I love this world



  84. 84

    Perez have you ever actually HAD dry sockets??! they are by far the most painful thing i have ever experienced in my life. Worse than surgery pain, broken bones, ANYthing. I went completely f$)#$ing insane when it happened to me, i really don't blame her for losing it!!



  85. 85

    I was at the laundry mat when this show was on. Oh my fuckity fuck, was it bad. It was like watching soft core porn on HBO late at night, without the titties.



  86. 86

    Actually it is too bad cw didnt let this one go a couple more episodes i actually thought it had a great storyline and mischa was not the whole show by far and she was not bad in it. I think cw jumped the gun all new shows were just starting and once everyone got use to when their shows were on i think the rating would have climbed if they were going to pull the plug on a show why not 90210 that one is just painful to watch now first year it was good and now it is pathetic. Atleast ashton had the whole story going modeling, drugs, eating disorders, paparazzi etc i think i would have been great oh and dont forget about the twilight knockoff i do however like the vampire diaries but dont they already have 6 teenybopper shows?

    It hink this show needed to build an audience. Too soon to cut it. I actually was starting to get into it. I'm sure the money is going to be put to Heather Locklear's salary on Melrose Place.
    I hope Sara Paxton moves to Gossip Girls



  88. 88

    i really liked the show even if it was only 2 episodes..my friends liked it too..they shouldnt have stopped it.. :X
