The Governor's Wife - Cancelled?
Posted on 11/11/2013 3:56:00 PM.

It's possible that after just three weeks, The Governor's Wife has been cancelled by A&E and no new episodes will be made. The show was scheduled to air Sunday night, but instead the network ran the remaining episodes about former governor Edwin Edwards and wife Trina that morning. John Maginnis of offers his analysis.

"I couldn't find anyone IN Louisiana who liked it so I couldn't imagine that it was playing in Peoria or anywhere else it needed to get an audience," Maginnis said.

Maginnis says he thought the show was going to be centered around the quick witted Edwin Edwards instead of Trina. But he says he doesn't even think there is any appeal to a show about an 86 year old ex politician and his young wife.

"I guess the show had a lot of flaws to deal with but to their credit they got it on the air," laughed Maginnis. "They have a book of DVDs they can watch as much as they want."

A&E's website says The Governor's Wife airs at 9pm on Sunday nights, but on November 10th a rerun of Duck Dynasty played in that spot. When Trina's show first aired, about 35,000 people reportedly stopped watching after the first episode.

Maginnis doesn't think Edwin would care one way or the other if the show was no more.

"But anything for his wife he loves so there you go," Maginnis said. "I don't think reality TV was exactly appealing to him, but if the money's good and the wife is happy, what are you gonna do?"
Trina denies the show is being cancelled and says they are working on a move but she can not discuss the details.

    Anyone who missed Thursday’s Democratic debate in Milwaukee could have tuned in to Hillary Clinton’s event in South Carolina for the highlights.In fact, it might have been clearer what she was trying to accomplish.Lines met with gentle nods in Wisconsin were greeted with vigorous applause Friday by the residents of Denmark, South Carolina, a rural town with a population of less than 4,000. At the heart of her message was a phrase that Clinton repeated multiple times during her remarks.“I want you to understand, I will not promise you something I cannot deliver,” Clinton said. “I will not make promises I know I cannot keep.” The pragmatic vow was a subtle dig at her opponent Bernie Sanders, who has campaigned on platforms of free college and universal healthcare. But it also functioned as a reminder to communities like this one – rural, poor, and overwhelmingly African American – that voters here have been burned before.
