Riot: TV Show Cancelled by Fox

Fox has cancelled Riot, their new comedy improv series, after four episodes.

Hosted by Rove McManus, Riot is an unscripted show that pairs guest celebrities with a group of regular players for comedy song, dance, and sketch challenges. The regulars are John Ross Bowie, Jamie Denbo, Brian Palermo, Jordan Black, Jessica McKenna, Meryl Hathaway and Rob Gleeson.

The show debuted in mid-May to a dismal 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.34 million viewers. The numbers have gone up and down since then but have all been terrible.

The network has pulled the show from the schedule effective immediately, along with I Wanna Marry "Harry". The four remaining episodes may surface at some point in the future but there are currently no plans. Reruns of Fox comedies will fill the timeslot for the time being.

'Riot': Steve Carell and cast on the new improv game show that's taking comedy to the extreme

'Riot': Steve Carell and cast on the new improv game show that's taking comedy to the extreme
I think it’s safe to say that Steve Carell is a master of physical comedy. This is the man who famously once waxed his chest hair on the big screen. So it makes sense that The Office star is an executive producer and one of the first celebrity guests on Riot, a new extreme game show premiering tonight on Fox.

“I have no idea what I’m getting myself into,” Carell jokingly told EW before filming alongside his Office co-star Andy Buckley. The show is based on the international hit franchise Slide Show and puts two teams of celebrities

Review of "Love Shack"

Love Shack is a gleeful, slick faux documentary in the grand tradition of Best in Show and This Is Spinal Tap – except instead of dog shows or hair bands, this flick takes aim at the porn industry. Directed by Gregg Saccon and Michael B. Silver, it's a decidedly goofy, gay-inclusive, PG-13-appropriate take on the making of a "legacy" porn flick.

A cast of commentators, including former porn stars, a "professional" porn historian and a VH1 "I Love the 80s" style snarkmeister begin the picture, detailing the life of recently deceased "Mo Saltzman" (Ian Gomez), a beloved and wildly successful porn producer with 40 years of "commercially and artistically successful" films under his belt.

Mo has left an artistic legacy, according to the "academic" commentator, an empire according to Mr. Snark, and a loving, non-traditional family, according to his many stars. Now in their 50s and 60s, former performers recall their

Second, I have a giveaway, and one lucky winner will receive an signed copy of the script. The script is signed by Elisa Donovan, Brian Palermo (who plays Gayle's husband), and writer/director Brent Forrester.

She followed that with the unnoticable "Connie and Carla" opposite the talented Toni Collette as well as David Duchovny.
