`Rubicon' dies; `Simpsons' lives

AMC has canceled its unenthralling conspiracy-thriller series Rubicon. Cause of death: Nielsen atrophy. The show’s 1.6 million viewers might have been enough to carry it on a basic-cable network, but its audience in the key 18-to-49 age demo was less than 450,000.

On the other side of the scale — waaaaaay on the other side of the scale — Fox has just renewed The Simpsons for a 23rd season. That will make it 515 episodes, in case you’ve lost count.

BEING MATURE

Jessica Simpson wants nothing but the best for her ex.

The singer/actress told Ryan Seacrest she’s excited for Nick Lachey, who recently popped the question to Vanessa Minnillo.

“I am extremely, extremely happy for him,” she told Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Thursday. “I couldn’t be more happy for Nick.”

BABY ON THE WAY

Beauty queen Carrie Prejean is expecting her first child with her hubby, NFL quarterback Kyle Boller. Boller and Prejean married in July.

“We are just so excited,” Prejean told E! News. “I’m due in May.”
