VH1's 'Best Week Ever' Canceled?
Best Week Ever, VH1's weekly pop culture round-up show has been canned. Well, maybe.
"It will be off the air until 2010, which some employees are considering effectively the same as a cancellation, since Best Week Ever normally breaks for weeks at a time, not months," according to New York magazine who originally reported the story.
This seems to be news to staffers, who were expecting to return to work in the fall. Plus, sources say host Paul F. Tompkins is planning to move back to Los Angeles.
"VH1's Best Week Ever has actually gone on its scheduled production hiatus and will return in January 2010. Its companion piece Best Day Ever which spoofs that day’s pop culture news will return this fall," said the network's spokesperson.
Since the network changed the format and relaunched the show last October with Paul as the sole host and a fraction of the usual commentators, the show has not been the same.
If it's gone, it probably won't be missed. Everyone watches "The Soup", anyway.
