Why settle for “Lipstick” when we could have “Cashmere”?

 
 

Brooke Shields attended the Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony to promote NBC’s Lipstick Jungle, which will premiere Thursday, February 7, in ER’s slot (after ER runs out of original episodes).

Along with Shields, the series stars Kim Raver and Lindsay Price as three high-powered executives in New York City. It’s based on a bestselling book by Candace Bushnell about a jungle full of lipstick-wearing animals. Or something like that.

While we’re generally happy to see series that feature strong female roles, Lipstick’s review by our resident TV critics, Lori and Sarah, was not exactly stellar. OK, they hated it. Hop over and view the preview, then join me in saying “eww.”

Buzz Sugar came up with an excellent idea that would lift us out of our disappointment that Lipstick Jungle looks to be so lame. ABC should run Cashmere Mafia in the same time slot.

The series, starring Lucy Liu, Miranda Otto, Frances O’Connor and Bonnie Somerville, was put on hold because of the writers’ strike, and this is the perfect time to release it. Why am I so sure?

I rest my case. ABC, are you paying attention?
