Famous in 12: CW TV Show Cancelled

Famous in 12 CW TV show canceledLast 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?

    I can’t say I’m sorry to see them go. The experiment may have worked if they had a more interesting family. Personality, sense of humor and wit goes along way.. Unfortunately, this family really didn’t seem to have any.

    I didn’t really care about this show. I never watched it, because they were pretending to be like the other SLUTY family that MOST of us don’t watch.

    True, they had a slow start but as soon as their mom “really” took charge, it really looked as if they were on their way…Sorry to see them go. I hope that they use the contacts that they made, grow to meet more, and ultimately accomplish their dreams. I believe that as a result of what that they did get (contacts, advice, coaching, etc.) out of the opportunity, alone, Fame is still very possible!…Maybe not in 12 but in their own time. An investment of wealth was made… I believe that “People” are the real wealth in our lives. I wish them the very best!
