Lipstick Jungle

On Wednesday, NBC Universal announced that “Lipstick Jungle” was one of three NBC programs that had committed to going “green.” Within the next news cycle, it was learned that “Jungle” was going bye-bye before completing its sophomore season. “You can’t go more carbon-neutral than going out of production,” said more than one industry wag. That wasn’t the only unfortunate timing. Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford this week announced on the fourth hour of “Today,” which they co-host, that they would be taping an appearance as themselves for “Lipstick” later that day. This morning they told “Today” viewers that their appearance is scheduled for Dec. 26, which is slated to be the series' final episode.
