Multiple sources report that The Client List has been cancelled by Lifetime after two seasons. Though the show delivered strong ratings, allegedly star and producer  Jennifer Love Hewitt and the network clashed over the future creative direction of the series.

    No, no, no. I can’t, I can’t…

  • Raykov

    Wasn’t The Client List the best rated Lifetime original series?

  • John A

    I knew it would happen. It had a poor 2nd season but it was a cute show. How stupid of JLH to be all diva like with plots of the show.

  • charlie

    The show was actually really good in the beginning … But started sucking in the second season right choice they made

  • Mathew

    So happy drop dead diva managed to get renewed

  • Mike

    I think lifetime is pretty dumb for this

  • Revenger

    That doesn’t make sense…

  • charlie

    Looks like witches of east end has more of a chance right now to get renewed :D

  • Mike

    I never seen the show but it had really good ratings

  • moshane58

    CRAP…Another good show cancelled…

  • Arnold D.

    Why would they cancel a show because of a clash of direction? As long as it brings in money, what is the point? I doubt 90% of the viewers would drop the show no matter how bad it got writing wise at least not in a season.

  • John A

    It did drop alot in ratings anyway towards the end of S2. It didnt deserve to be canceled but the 3rd probably would have been the last.

  • Oliver

    This had been rumoured for a while. The ratings were fine, but they clearly decided they would rather renew a lower-rated show than deal with JLH.

  • Tony JJ

    JLH really screwed up. I have a different opinion of her as a person now. She was a diva and thought she could force the show to do whatever she wanted and this is what happened. Although the first season was excellent, I only watched half of the second season and it did drop in quality. And I assume with Devious Maids being a major hit for them, Drop Dead Diva returning to okay numbers, and Witches of East End not doing too bad. (with both Devious Maids and Witches of East End both growing from their DDD lead-in), Lifetime decided they didn’t need this show and JLH’s diva attitude.

    Clearly someone doesn’t remember Heroes…

    @Arnold D

    it was more than just clash of direction, it had to deal with Jennifer Love Hewitt’s real life pregnancy being written into the show. She wanted her real life fiancé who also stars as her ex husband in the show to be her baby’s daddy in the show and the producers wanted to make the baby’s daddy her ex husband’s brother. I bet Jennifer Love Hewitt was very diva-ish and wouldn’t compromise and when your show’s star is also an executive producer on the show, it creates real problems and thus had the network and producer Sony TV just call it quits.

    Someone clearly wanted more money. At least in my opinion, it’s likely her demands were too much.

  • jmacgrath

    It was cancelled because JLH wanted her baby daddy to be on the show as a regular. Lifetime and Sony Pictures Television didn’t want that and she threw a fit (one of many). Lifetime and SPT pretty much said screw that and just cancelled the show. She pulled the same crap with Ghost Whisperer when she was dating Jamie Kennedy. She needs to be told she’s a ’90s hasbeen and should be happy to have regular work.

    @Oliver

    Most people said Heroes turned to crap after Season One. How many seasons did it end up getting? 4. NBC kept it around so long because despite its godawful writing, it made the network money. Isn’t Lifetime’s whole goal in this to make money? Cancel it when it becomes a loss to the network, not because you think it MIGHT become one.

  • Brandy

    That’s too bad.i liked the show and it sucks there won’t be closure.
