Sorry, Charlie: ABC Cancels Charlie's Angels Reboot

After just three lackluster episodes, ABC has decided to shelve it's much ballyhooed reboot of the classic 70s jiggle-fest Charlie's Angels. The hour-long drama starring Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh as sexy crime-fighters, debuted in late September to unimpressive ratings and reviews. The show failed to capture the spark of the original series, which famously starred the late Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson. The original show was created by legendary producer Aaron Spelling and helped launch Farrah Fawcett's incredible career, even  though she only appeared in the very first season of the show. It probably wasn't a good idea to do a remake of an iconic television show that was also made into a popular series of films starring big-name headliners Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu. Guess the television viewing public was all Angel-ed out.
