Lipstick Jungle Gets 6 More Episodes

NBC's show Lipstick Jungle received an order of six extra episodes. This means that the series will get a first season of 13 episodes. TV Guide reveals that the series, based on the book of the same name written by Sex In The City author Candace Bushnell, is winning its timeslot among women of the 18-49 and 18-34 categories.

Lipstick Jungle stars Brooke Shields, Lindsay Price, and Kim Raver, as a trio of friends who help one another through the problems faced at work and with their family members. The drama may not be the best series out there but, thanks to a schedule where most shows are in reruns, it found a good following of fans.

The real test will be when the show must face real competition. It's unlikely it will stay in the same timeslots when those extra six episodes air, NBC will more than likely put ER back in its timeslot when ABC starts to air Lost at 10 p.m. on Thursdays. Lipstick will have to up the ante and offer better episodes if they want viewers to stay glued to NBC instead of switching channels to watch new episodes of their favorite shows.


I wasn’t sure I was going to like Lipstick Jungle when it first aired, but now I am addicted. It is marked to record on my DVR every week. I really love this show.
