Deathwatch 2006: Magazines You Likely Never Read

Surprise that it was shitcanned:

Not surprised that it was shitcanned:


STATEMENT REGARDING SHOP ETC. AND WEEKEND
After launching and/or acquiring 12 magazines in the last seven years--one of the most aggressive records of any publishing company--we have reexamined the viability of some of our development titles.


Unfortunately, because the performance metrics we set for new magazines were not achieved, and because of the challenging economy, tough newsstand environment, and rising paper and postal costs, two magazines will be discontinued: SHOP Etc. (after its October issue) and Weekend (after its September issue).


We thank Mandi Norwood, Cindy Lewis and their staffs at SHOP Etc., and Susan Wyland, Lauren Michaels and their staffs at Weekend, for all their hard work and dedication.

Thx for the heads up Gawker!

I'm in total agreement. Even though I think Lucky is kind of a retarded title, Conde Nast seems to have the formula down for this type of mag.

Yeah, you gotta leave it to the Nasties to get this sort of formula (imported from Asia) down pat...
