Starting Over’s third season ends today; NBC says its future will be decided soon

The third season of Starting Over concludes today. The reality series broke new ground, as it was a daily, syndicated show that had a revolving cast of mostly middle-aged women who were helped through problems in their lives with the help of three life coaches.

Today’s episode is titled “Starting Over Farewell,” and that seems to confirm reports that this is the last season, and that it will not be renewed for a fourth season.

An NBC spokesperson told reality blurred earlier this week that no decision has been made on the show’s future, but one will be “within the next few weeks.” NBC distributes the show.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
