Today brings good news for fans of a couple Showtime series, but bad news for others. Variety reports the cable network has renewed The Borgias and Nurse Jackie for another season, but has pulled the plug on The United States of Tara. News of the latter is somewhat surprising considering the show received some Emmy love in 2009 for star Toni Collette, but apparently the ratings just haven’t been up to par with last season’s numbers. meanwhile, Nurse Jackie starring Edie Falco has had a decrease in ratings, but not poor enough to justify not giving the series a fourth season. Meanwhile The Borgias starring Jeremy Irons seems to be standing strong as a freshman series, and will get a second season. I’m not very loyal to any shows on Showtime (though I really need to start watching Dexter), so maybe some fans out there would like to express their elation or sadness on this news?

    My personal opinion I have enjoyed this season of United States of Tara more than Nurse Jackie. Im shocked to see they have cancelled it. As far as Dexter goes….yes you should definatly watch it!


    Oh my god! Never mind all these other shows, just watch DEXTER!!!! Its one of the best shows to have ever come out on tv! It gets better and better too.

    Cant wait for this next (final?) season too. Hopefully no spoilers will be shown before it ends too.

      Also, forgot to add, I hope it ends with a bang somehow. I loved LOST till the final season and terrible weak cop out ending. Hope the writers arent asleep for the finali of Dexter.

      Shame Lost didnt take a leap out of Battlestar Galacticas bold (if rushed) ending.

    nurse jackie was never a great show, but Tara had so much wildness and great acting . .

    Wow……..thats depressing to hear. United States of Tara is an amazing, well written hilarious show.


    The Borgias is good, but it is way too slow IMO, btu over all very well acted.

    Nurse Jackie…….saw one episode….meh

    Dexter…….. is amazing……you should definately give it a try.
