๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ“บ “I Love That For You” Gets The Boot From Showtime After Just One Round ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿšซ

TL;DR; Summary:
The glitzy comedy, “I Love That for You,” is packing up after just one season on Showtime. Executive producers Vanessa Bayer, Jeremy Beiler and Jessi Klein received a “Thank You and Goodbye” from Showtime, leaving fans and viewers hanging on a cliff. But all hope isn’t lost, the show is open to finding a new network to call home. Showtime’s comedic lineup now just hangs on Neil Patrick Harris’s “Uncoupled”. Is this the end of comedy sitcoms at Showtime? ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฎ

The Full Scoop:
Well folks, you might have to find another show to love because Showtime has pulled the plug on the much-anticipated “I Love That for You” after its first season. Executive producers Vanessa Bayer, Jeremy Beiler, and Jessi Klein are getting their pink slips, with Showtime stating, “We appreciate your efforts, but we’re moving in a different direction.” ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’”

Here’s the rewind. “I Love That for You” completed its debut season on June 19, 2022, after eight Sunday-night episodes. It told the rather controversial tale of a budding shopping channel host (played by Bayer) who falsely claims her childhood cancer has returned to save her job. Seriously, who does that? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ“บ

Notable talents like Molly Shannon, Paul James, Ayden Mayeri, Matt Rogers, Punam Patel, and Jenifer Lewis, joined Bayer in the cast. Big names such as Michael Showalter, Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle, Jordana Mollick, and Allyce Ozarski were also on the executive production team. Quite a star-studded lineup, eh? ๐ŸŒŸ

However, it seems all that glitter wasn’t gold for everyone. Critics like Daniel D’Addario noted that while Bayer’s performance was commendable, the show was missing that special something. You know, “the grain and texture of actual office life or a recognizable media environment.” Do you think it was just too far from reality to be relatable? ๐Ÿง๐ŸŽญ

Here’s a twist though. It appears “I Love That for You” might not be headed to the TV graveyard just yet. The production is open to shop around for a new network home. Imagine that! But until then, Showtime’s only left holding onto Neil Patrick Harris’s “Uncoupled,” after Netflix gave it the axe. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ”„

With the cancellation of “I Love That for You”, along with โ€œAmerican Gigolo,โ€ โ€œLet the Right One Inโ€ and โ€œThe L Word: Generation Qโ€, it looks like Showtime is in full-on makeover mode. But what’s the new look? Under new management by Chris McCarthy, the network seems to be shedding its skin. Is this goodbye to the era of Showtime sitcoms? ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ“‰

So, now over to you. Does this abrupt end to “I Love That for You” spell a change in direction for Showtime, or just another bump in the road? ๐Ÿค” And most importantly, would you be willing to follow the show if it finds a new home on another network? Or have you already moved on to the next big thing? Discuss! ๐ŸŽฌ๐ŸŽค
