BAPs: Lifetime TV Show Cancelled and Pulled

BAPs TV show on Lifetime canceledLifetime has reportedly cancelled their new BAPs TV show after four episodes. Two installments will remain unaired.

A reality show, BAPs follows a group of affluent African-American friends from St. Louis who self-identify as “BAPs” — Black American Princesses and Princes. The show debuted on July 23rd to weak ratings.

Today, the cast received bad news emails from Asylum Entertainment (which produces the show) which reads in part, “I wanted to let you know that Lifetime informed us that they will not be airing the last 2 episodes of BAPS. We’re very sorry it panned out this way. It’s very difficult to build an audience for an ensemble show like this one, but we’re very proud of the show and happy to have had the experience working with you.”

What do you think? Did you watch BAPs? Would you like to see the remaining episodes?

All these positive comments are clearly perpetrated by those who either know the cast members or the cast members themselves because these comments are totally the opposite of the social media comments sent prior to the cancellation of this farce of a show. That or clearly those who are commenting have no clue as to what a real BAP is… If they did then they would be appalled and embarrassed of this show! Lifetime did the right thing by pulling this show…. It wasn’t reality!! It was all wrong and disrespectful to the real deal!!

Honestly I didn’t notice the show was off the air until I was cleaning up my DVR timers and I thought, “Oh yeah! What happened to those people?”. It was just ok to me. The best episode was the one when they debated on the radio about what it means to be a BAP. That was thought-provoking. Lifetime can easily add the last 2 episodes to the website for those of us who care to see them. That shouldn’t cost anything since the 4 full episodes that aired are on the site.
