    Showtime is losing some of its personality: The pay cabler has canceled United States of Tara.


    A Showtime rep confirms to TVLine that the Emmy winning dramedy’s current third season — set to conclude on June 20 — will be its last.


    On the bright side, the cable net has renewed Edie Falco’s Nurse Jackie for a fourth season.


    Tara, which netted leading lady Toni Collette numerous accolades including an Emmy and a Golden Globe, has been averaging just north of 300K viewers a week this season — down from 560K for Season 2. By comparison, Jackie has been attracting 762K viewers.

    I am saddened by this news, I mean c'mon, a painkiller addicted nurse is more interesting than a mother of 2 with dissociative identity disorder?

    oh well, at least there will be the memories of seasons 1 and 2

    very depressing. all the well written shows get the axe and yet TruBlood keeps going!! (Yes I may watch it, but it really still is the worst written, worst acted thing on television, yet strangely addictive)

    really, worse writing than glee? (think about it)

    well atleast with trueblood you can follow it up with the sookie stockhouse novels, which do follow along with the seasons (mostly. you have to remember that they were first).
