TV News Roundup: E! Cancels ‘Stewarts & Hamiltons,’ ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Adds Guest Role

One reality series is canceled and another gets a premiere date, while a “thirtysomething” alum gets one mother of a role in today’s TV news roundup . . .

Cancellations:

E! has canceled “Stewarts & Hamiltons” after one season, Variety has confirmed. The series, which premiered last summer in conjunction with Caitlyn Jenner’s docuseries “I Am Cait,” followed actor George Hamilton, his wife Alana Stewart and their Hollywood royalty family.

“We recently wrapped the eight-episode first season of ‘Stewarts & Hamiltons’ and we’re exploring other opportunities to work with the family,” said a network spokesperson.

Premiere Dates:

FYI will premiere “BlackLove” on Dec. 8 at 10:15 p.m. The reality show is about dynamic black women from New York City as they embark on a unique journey to uncover what they are doing wrong when it comes to finding love. The 10-episode series will follow the five women — including newly single Monet Bell from the first season of “Married at First Sight” — as they discover the issues that have held them back from finding a fulfilling and loving relationship.

Casting News:

“Saints and Sinners” and “thirtysomething” alum Mel Harris will guest star in one episode of CW’s “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” as Shauna, the mother of lovable West Covina barkeep Greg Serrano (played by Santino Fontana). Now married to a plastic surgeon and living in Beverly Hills, her return to the suburbs means Greg has to face his past before he can move forward.

Harris is repped by Abrams Artists Agency and the Burstein Company.
