Anyone know what happened? I watched it and thought it was pretty good, though I wanted more of Jane, of course. Smile

Ratings weren't good enough to keep it, the CW only had so many slots for new shows and to be chosen the ratings had to be excellent. MM just never caught on.

Too many shows and not enough time slots. That is what happen.

Hi!
I havenīt been able to post much lately with school and everything, and I havenīt seen anything from MM in Mexico and that makes me really angry, I think Jane is pretty good in comedy too and I am sorry the show didn't make it. So, what's next for Jane on TV? Any idea?
Madeleine.

I watched all the eps of Modern Men and thought the show was funny and cute. And Jane was great. It could have toned down on being a little on the crass side, but other then that it was a cute show. Can't understand why it just didn't make it. Les doesn't seem to like "Family" shows so he really should have loved this show. It sure wasn't made for children.

I've heard that Les has "bad feelings" for Jane, so I wouldn't be surprised if that had something to do with it. But I believe that the "numbers" (ratings) for the show weren't very good. It wasn't given much publicity or a very good time slot, so it was really pretty much doomed from the start.

Irene don't get your hopes up about that movie, Jane has a very small role in it and she does NOT look like the Jane you know. She wears a grey wig and - well not the way we want to see her trust me Smile I just do NOT undersstand why a woman who was just named the tenth most beautiful woman in Britain, who only a few years ago was the tenth most beautiful woman in the WORLD according to one poll can NOT get a decent role anymore!! If she looks too young as she says for the parts she is trying out for, why not try out for slightly younger roles then to start? I dont' think Jane would have any problem playing 46 or so.

Sigh

Irene, you are so right! It seems as if everything now is "how cheaply can we do this?" It's cheaper to do a "reality" show, becuase they don't have to pay established "stars" to do it. No one cares about "quality" anymore. Jane is "quality"!

Agreed Elaine. Some network are just so cheap these days, they don't really care anymore. They just want to get their profit and keeps it!

Jane is such a hard working actresses. And she has a good name, and is beautiful, so what is the problem? I guess her name isn't in the papers and news for being sluty, or drinking or doing drugs etc. What has happend to good women getting good roles? Why do all the trashy women get the good roles? What is the deal with people???

Apparently they're choosing the actors from the same demographic that they're trying to capture.

It is very sad, Carol. The newer generations of actors and actresses aren't nearly as dedicated to their craft. Just reading the newspapers every day, I see where one after another is getting in trouble, or even causing trouble on the movie locations. Their egos are way more important to them than doing quality work.
