Really? ABC calls Eastwick a “quiet success”

Out of the blue we came across a note over on the Hollywood gossip blog Deadline.com that the ABC series Eastwick has been successful for ABC, which means it will probably not be one of this year’s canceled shows. Now, we don’t have anything against the series; we were just kind of shocked to hear that it was considered a success, since, honestly, we haven’t heard anything at all about it.

The Topps Company has announced that it is closing down WizKids, its core hobby gaming business, and temporarily discontinuing the WizKids product lines.  Topps CEO Scott Silverstein commented, “This was an extremely difficult decision. But in light of the current economic conditions, we feel it is necessary to align our gaming initiatives more closely with Topps current sports and entertainment offerings which are already being developed within our New York office.”  WizKids is based in Seattle, Washington.
