Poor Thang: Terrence Howard Is Out Of A Job Again… And He’s Not The Only Black Actor

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Did You Know, Hollyweird, News

Law & Order L.A. Cancelled

Awww! He just cannot keep the baby wipes funding coming in.

NBC has finally decided to ax that miserable excuse for a Law & Order spin-off, “Law & Order: L.A.”

We’re sure you never saw that coming.

The show’s creators and writers tried to keep it alive: killing off Skeet Ulrich and turning his character’s death into an event, as the first Law & Order cop to die in the line of duty. They tried getting rid of the characters who weren’t relatable, which unfortunately put Regina Hall out of a job too. They even thought making us look at the King Of Wet Wipes as D.A. Jonah Dekker every week would bring viewers in. But none of that worked.

Sadly, the same ax-wielding execs also got rid of Blair Underwood’s show “The Event.”

The show, which wasn’t already doing that great to begin with, was put on a three month hiatus at the end of last year. When it came back in March, it was totally lost in the shuffle, not even regaining the low viewership numbers it had last fall.

It’s not all bad news for Blair and his Event crew: the show’s producers are rumored to be working on bringing it back to life on a different network.

Will you miss either of these shows?

    I liked law and order l.a. Too bad its being cancelled. Nbc shuffles shows around, never giving them a chance to catch on with audiences. I hope terrance howard finds something else. Same with blair underwood – he was excellent on “in treatment.”

  • LaWhat

    Sick of boring lawyer shows.

  • amiko

    we need to do something about ray man

    The show was awesome, I don’t think they promoted the show enough… Promotion is the key. The promote the reality show series from other networks on all other networks, so why not the drama and comedy series like “The Event” too – I hope it does comeback on another network. Maybe on Syfy if they can afford it…

    I think that the worst thing was moving L&O from NYC..The grit and the drama of the NYC streets kind of got lost in LA..If L&O returns to TV it should return to NYC to recapture the audience that made it successful from the beginning!

    • I RUN NEW YORK

      Exactly! NY was a major part of the show. No one cares about publicists, stylists, the paparazzi and all that other foolishness Law & Order LA had. The gritty and bizarre crimes that happen in NY are what a lot of the audience tunes in to see.

  • I RUN NEW YORK

    THE SHOW WAS TERRIBLE AND TARNISHING THE LAW & ORDER LEGACY. So glad it’s gone! Law and Order is NY having it in another city just won’t work coupled with the sh*tty writing did the show end.

    Law & Order: LA was cool but The Event was dope. i cant see why they would ever end that show and keep show on like The Biggest Loser.

    I really hate it when shows with black actors get canceled I hope they put away some money to fall back on, they don’t wanna pay em that much anyways. Smh

  • BossipKiller

    Law & Order LA was my isht. Terrance Howards voice was a little annoying but it was good. I liked the paparrazi,celebrity twist.

  • MR.MAKE.YA.FEELGOOD.(always read the fine print)

    THE EVENT IS A GOOD SHOW..

  • Shelly

    I looked at L&A:LA and didn’t look at it again. The whole L&A franchise is on it’s way out and I knew the LA one was done when they used known actors and the one story line I saw was not that good.

    L&A was good because of their story lines and the actors, at that time, were basically unknown.

  • Shelly

    Just saw what you said about The Event. I thought that was only suppose to be a mini-series anyway? I didn’t know they were going to cancel it.

    Really liked that show and was waiting to see how Sofia was going to destroy the people of Earth or how the people of Earth was going to destroy Sofia. Damn.

    L&O in LA? Good riddance.
    The Event? Maybe if they were not so convoluted and so UNBELIEVABLE, it might have stood a chance.
    The fact that a gun carrying punk kid goes around the world and is being hunted by almost every law enforcement agency and yet somehow never gets caught?
    Has gunfights with PROFESSIONAL law enforcement officers and yet never loses? Never gets caught, and NEVER has to pay for anything???
    What a waste.
    Once again, a show that showed promise, yet the WRITERS took this one down.

  • tanjay

    I love the event, and I was getting into l&o LA, but noooooo to my Event I love that show

  • Greeneyez0712

    Im a huge southland fan as well, Regina King and Shawn Hatosy are killing it. That’s a show that COINCIDENTALLY got the axe from NBC as well, but ended up really finding it’s true voice toward the end of this season on tnt.

    The common denominator here is NBC, I don’t think they understand who they want to be right now. Maybe they should develop an all Black tv show, hey it rescued them in the 80s

  • dcmbklyn

    @Deaya yes, SVU is the best spin off and to tell the truth I had a problem with L&O when it went to LA. It’s a NY based show and it doesn’t work outside of NY. Not like CSI which is having success with Miami and NY.
