I confess in the case of Blonde Charity Mafia, I thought CW had made that decision long, long ago.  But I guess no reality show cancellation before the show even airs is ever officially official until the cast has received an e-mail saying the show's not going to air on the CW, which according to the Washington Post's Lisa De Moraes is exactly what happened:

Participants in the much-ballyhooed reality series about Washington do-gooder celebutants got the bad news in an e-mail Tuesday from "BCM" producers: "We just heard from the CW that they have officially decided not to air BCM. They have been very supportive and complimentary of the project, but they now have two other shows that are 'home grown' that they are choosing to air instead," said the e-mail, a copy of which was obtained by The TV Column.

BCM also said they are shopping the show to two other networks, and you have to figure if that doesn't happen, some web video site will wind up buying it on the cheap.

Meanwhile Comedy Central confirmed that it would not be renewing The Jeff Dunham Show for a second season.  Dunham still has a deal with Comedy Central though and is expected to produce another special that would air on Comedy Central in late 2010.
