ABC Cancels GCB, Missing, Pan Am and The River

With the good comes the bad! ABC finally broke their silence, making announcements on the shows they were renewing but now the gauntlet has been dropped with a quartet  of TV shows receiving their pink slips. Among the casualties at ABC are:  

'GCB': Sandra Bernhard Strands The Women In The Desert

Sandra Bernhard certainly didn't represent the "G" in the season finale of " GCB " (Sun., 10 p.m. ET on ABC), but she gave a great take on the original meaning of that "B." Carlene's dream of condos for Christians in Mexico came to a screeching halt when Bernhard's character first blackmailed her into giving the land back and then abandoned the ladies in the desert. It was with a rather delicious glee that Bernhard took on the role of villain for the episode. She capture the sometimes over-the-top camp of the series perfectly. There was another benefit -- in regards to potential future drama -- of the trip. Carlene learned that Ripp has a daughter. But will anything come of it should the show get a second season? With all the laughs, twists and turns it offers each episode, "GCB" is certainly made from the right formula to vie for a post-"Desperate Housewives" spot on the network. But even if it doesn't get picked up for a fall run, fans can hold out hope for another shortened season like this first one. Find out ABC's decision on "GCB" -- for the fall at least -- when the network unveils its Fall 2012 schedule on Tuesday, May 15. TV Replay scours the vast television landscape to find the most interesting, amusing, and, on a good day, amazing moments, and delivers them right to your browser.

'GCB' finale: Sandra Bernhard is 'Debby Horowitz, eco-terrorist'

The "GCB" women are in for a real adventure on the Season 1 finale when they journey down to Juarez, Mexico for the groundbreaking ceremony at Carlene's Condos for Christian Living. Standing in the way of their celebration is guest-star Sandra Bernhard, who tells Zap2it she's "Debby Horowitz, eco-terrorist," as if she's an FBI agent identifying herself."I play Debby Horowitz, an eco-conservationist-terrorist who takes the GCBs hostage when they go to Juarez for Carlene's charity," says Bernhard. "And I put a stop to it. I kidnap the girls and hold them hostage in the middle of the Mexican desert. They don't know what hit them until they sign a release for the sacred native turf and I take off and they're left behind. They manage to free themselves from their shackles and run off into the desert." Robert Harling, the creator of "GCB," was the one who recruited Bernhard for the role, which she says...

'GCB's' Leslie Bibb: 'Hollywood is like high school with more money'

Zap2it: Many people may not know this from "GCB," but you're a Southern girl yourself, right?Leslie Bibb: Yeah, I grew up, not in a Highland Park (Texas) South but in a small country town in Virginia. My dad died when I was 3, and I was raised by my mom. She was always the bravest person I knew. That's what I love about Southern women. They've got a lot of gumption. But when it comes to them, and I always tease my mom about this, nobody wants to talk about stuff; they just keep shoving it under the rug.Zap2it: Do you think Amanda is "the right one" on this show?Leslie Bibb: Amanda is the eyes and ears for the audience as they come and swim through these shark-infested waters of Highland Park. But Amanda's pendulum reacts so strongly to these women in terms of not wanting to be them, that her pendulum swings back so...

The organizational skills are not that great, but the food is fantastic."Her parents traveled and were very political.
