R.I.P. Bunheads

ABC-Family announced yesterday that it would not be picking up Bunheads for a second season. A real favorite of Katie-Bar-The-Door's and the Monkey's, the critically-acclaimed Bunheads was a warm, smart, quirky comedy about a couple of widows—one young(ish), one old(ish)—who run a dance school, make lots of old movie references and mentor a quartet of teenage girls.

Any show that would quote an obscure line from Sunset Boulevard—"As long as the lady is paying for it, why not take the Vicuna?"—is a show that's right in my wheelhouse.

A few of my favorite moments:

Michelle, Fanny, Sasha, Boo, Ginny, Melanie, and all the rest, we here at the Monkey will miss you.
