Lifetime Cancels The Client List

Tragic news: Variety reports that Lifetime has canceled its Texas sex-work drama The Client List, starring Jennifer Love Hewitt. The show ended its second season in June, and has been in limbo ever since: JLH, the show's creative team, and the network reportedly butted heads about the direction of a possible season three. (Brian Hallisay, Hewitt's real-life partner and the father of her gestating child, played her character's crappy ex-husband, which was perhaps going to affect the storylines of the show.)  The Client List was very dumb and so arduously unsexy that it was oddly relaxing and pleasant. Why, those were the jolliest darn hand jobs on television.
