The “Desperate Housewives” might be forced out of Wisteria Lane soon. ABC and the show’s producers are contemplating making the series’ upcoming 8th season its last, the New York Post reported Wednesday.

The decision could be made within the next few weeks — which would give creator Marc Cherry and executive producer Bob Daily plenty of time to pull out all the stops for a last hurrah this season instead of dragging things out.

An ABC spokesperson told the Post that “no decision has been made yet, it seems like people are just guessing.”

But, one insider said, “It’s all dependent on the ratings. It will be up against some stiff competition.”

This fall, “Housewives” will have to fight for its audience against CBS’ newly relocated “The Good Wife.” Assuming everything works out between NFL owners and players, the show will also have to fend off interference from NBC’s Sunday Night Football coverage.

It is possible that ABC will wait to see how its slate of new series will fare and whether “Housewives” succumbs to another ratings drop before deciding to end the series.

“Desperate Housewives” came in as the 24th most-watched show of the 2010-2011 season according to Nielsen — a significant drop from its No. 4 standing during its first and second seasons.
