Denise Richards’ says It’s Complicated has been renewed

Denise Richards’ dreadfully boring E! reality series It’s Complicated has actually been renewed by the network, she says, despite an earlier report that it was cancelled.

“It’s coming back for another season. We start filming in a few months,” she told Us Weekly.

In August, Broadcasting & Cable reported that “[a] representative for E! says that the show has not been canceled, but its future is still unclear.” And that E! spokesperson told OK!, “The show has not been cancelled–The series has performed well for the network and decisions are still being made regarding a second season.”

Those stories were in response to an anonymously sourced (surprise!) New York Post story that said the show was cancelled due to its low ratings.

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.
