Aliens in America

I'm not gonna lie. This is just about the suckiest scoop I've had to report in a good long while, and it actually makes me tear up.

Aliens in America looks to be dead.

Casting sources connected to some other show (does it really matter which one?) have informed me that Scott Patterson is now being classified as "available for a new project next season."

He's the Tolchuck dad, you see, and an integral character on Aliens.

And it gets worse: Adhir Kalyan, who plays Raja, also has been cast in FX's Nip/Tuck for next season. It's only a recurring part, but I think we all can see the writing on the wall, and it makes me a sad clown.

If you haven't yet seen this show, you have no idea how tragic it is that Aliens gone. The show truly found its groove in later episodes, and Momma Tolchuck (Amy Pietz) just might be the funniest woman on television right now. (OK, next to Tina Fey and Jenna Fischer, but still.)

The CW network has yet to weigh in, and the CBS-Paramount studio officially has no comment. If something comes through contradicting the news that Aliens in America is over, you'll be the first to hear it. In the meantime, I'll be over in the corner sobbing quietly if anyone needs me.
