It's time now for everyone's favorite late-afternoon mini-mystery, aka a blind item guessing game. Today's comes to us from EW's Michael Ausiello, who broke the Grey's Anatomy CallicaGate story, and so who knows from TV set histrionics. On this particular "sophomore drama," "all the stars have the disposition of Linda Blair pre-exorcism."
Each actor is crazier than the next," whispers a staffer employed behind the scenes at the war-torn program. "And they all pretty much hate each other."
And they're finding it increasingly difficult to hide their mutual disdain from viewers. Per my snitch, the male lead "cannot stand" his love interest, "and it's obvious by their complete lack of chemistry." The good news is, the nightmare may soon be over for all concerned. Although the show enjoys a rabid cult following and solid critical support, its ratings are such that a third season is looking very unlikely.
Our first thought was Dirty Sexy Money, as things have been a little flat in the bedroom between Billy Baldwin and his transexual love interest lately. But does any critic actually like this show? Then it dawned on us that except for that little "drama" mention, everything described sounds a lot to us like Pushing Daisies—Ned seems more interested in the dog than Chuck, and the ratings-challenged series has indeed enjoyed a "rabid cult following and solid critical support." Our third candidate is Private Practice, which we've never seen, but hey—anything's possible. We leave it to you now to get to the bottom of this.
