I Wanna Marry “Harry”: New FOX TV Show Cancelled

I Wanna Marry Harry TV show on FOX canceledThe wedding is off. FOX has cancelled their new dating reality show, I Wanna Marry “Harry”, after airing four episodes.

Co-produced by Ryan Seacrest, I Wanna Marry “Harry” follows a group of young American ladies who believe that they’re in a dating competition to be with Prince Harry of Wales. In truth, “Harry” is a lookalike bachelor named Matthew Hicks. Are they falling in love with the man, or the crown?

The series debuted to a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.9 million. Those might be okay numbers for The CW but certainly not for a FOX series. The numbers have gotten even worse in subsequent weeks and this week’s episode drew a 0.4 rating with 991,000 viewers.

With four episodes remaining in the season, FOX has pulled Harry from the schedule effective immediately. Reruns of FOX comedies will fill the timeslot starting next week.

Because Harry is a Fox show, the remaining episodes will be released online via sites like starting tomorrow afternoon. Riot, another new FOX show that’s also now been cancelled, won’t be as lucky.

A FOX rep says that the series may return to the schedule at some point but that seems highly unlikely given the numbers.

What do you think? Were you watching I Wanna Marry “Harry”? Do you think that it should have been cancelled? Was a second season feasible?

What happened? I was quite enjoying this show,but could never find it. Since most of the regular TV shows are “rubbish” in the US anyhow,I rarely watch anything. Thought the fake Harry was too classy and a real gent. Too good for most of those trashy girls. He was a “real” person despite being an actor, and the girls were more fake, in many ways. How about some women on TV with less make-up,no fake tans,boobs,hair etc,and then see what we really have?

I found this show better than most of the realities. It was actually hilarious. Each episode I asked where did they find these girls that had never heard of or seen Prince Harry. I find shows like Big Brother, Bachelor, etc. just stupid and not enjoyable. I too would like to know how I Want To Marry Harry played out.

I would at least have liked to see the final outcome of the show. Did Harry end up with one of the girls? Did he reveal his true identity to the girl? Did she turn and run for the hills when she learned of his true identity? Could you at least show the FINAL EPISODE???? I was rather enjoying the show.

With only four episodes left……… Even with the low ratings, the series should have been completed to the end for the viewers that were watching I Wanna Marry Harry!
