Ratings, Cancelations and Andy’s New Special Hosting Gig

Posted by ImaJustSaying on June 9, 2011


 

MTV cancels controversial ‘Skins’  Clink me to read more

MTV-SKINS

It was one of the most talked about new dramas of the past year, and MTV’s most-discussed scripted show ever.

Yet the controversial Skins will not be back for a second season.

“Skins is a global television phenomenon that, unfortunately, didn’t connect with a US audience as much as we had hoped,” said MTV in a statement. “We admire the work that the series’ creator Bryan Elsley did in adapting the show for MTV, and appreciate the core audience that embraced it.”

When MTV first announced the acclaimed UK dramedy would get a U.S. revamp, fans were skeptical an ad-supported cable network could maintain the show’s rebellious and graphic nature.

Ratings rose for the show’s March finale to 1.2 million viewers and the series outperformed last summer’s first season of The Hard Times of R.J. Berger — which was renewed. But Skins was inaccurately bashed as “child pornography” by the Parents Television Council and bled advertisers scared off by the headlines and boycott threats.

The show’s creator had defended the series as a “rather old fashioned television series,” and says its content is “a very serious attempt to get to the roots of young people’s lives. It tries to tell the truth. Sometimes that truth can be a little painful to adults and parents.”

 

 

Who doesn’t like a good catfight? The drink-throwing, the shoving and rancor that culminated The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 6 finale drew a series-high 2.88 million viewers, a 17 percent increase over the previous season’s conclusion, according to Nielsen Media Research.

The Bravo program also attracted 1.86 million viewers aged 18-to-49, a 3 percent increase in the industry-prized demographic over last year’s season-ender.

That gave a boost to Watch What Happens: Live, which immediately followed Sunday’s show, as Andy Cohen hosted Season 6 newcomer Peggy Tanous and NHL journeyman Sean Avery, with 1.74 million people watching (1.13 million in the demo).
