Last night, executive producer Harvey Levin pulled the plug on the Famous in 12 TV show. The series was billed as a social experiment to see if a regular family could become celebrities in a dozen weeks.
Unfortunately, few people cared or tuned in. Episodes have averaged a mere 0.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 560,000 viewers.
Levin told the Artiaga family of Beaumont, California that viewership was too low and he sent them home after five of the planned 12 episodes.
The CW will fill the Tuesdays at 8pm timeslot with reruns of Arrow for the forseeable future.
What do you think? Are you sorry that Famous in 12 has been cancelled? Should the network have stuck with the series, for at least 12 weeks?
