NBC was smart enough to sign Seinfeld, to renew Frasier, and to cancel Joey - but they're outdoing themselves with Lipstick Jungle, the pilot based on the Candace Bushnell novel that takes place, in part, at a fashion magazine called Bonfire. The premise may sound a little like ABC's most recent glossy hit, but while Ugly Betty merely brings you inside a faux magazine, Lipstick Jungle will let you read it: Starting in September, Bonfire magazine will be available online to all NBC viewers. The magazine will join the very real Cosmo and Marie Claire on the iVillage network, and further blur the lines between fiction and reality for TV viewers. Which we guess is okay, but if we ever check into a hospital and have Ellen Pompeo taking our vital stats, we're never watching TV again.
