Mama’s Boys From the Bronx: TLC Series “Cancelled” Says Star

canceled Mamas Boys From the BronxTLC has yanked Mama’s Boys From the Bronx from their schedule after two weeks on the air. The reality series revolves around a handful of thirty-something Italian-American guys who live at home with their moms in the northernmost boroughs of New York City.

According to TVMediaInsights and Nielsen, week-to-week Mama’s Boys dropped from 808,000 to 610,000 viewers at 10pm, and 817,000 to 563,000 viewers at 10:30pm. The cable channel has replaced Mama’s Boys with installments of Undercover Boss Abroad.

Castmembers have been encouraging fans of the show to petition TLC to bring the show back. One of the stars, Anthony Zoccolillo, wrote on Facebook, “You know whats funny TLC? We filmed all this great stuff about our culture, values, and traditions and you cut it all out and make them add all this nonsense then cancel us cause nobody liked what you told our production team to shoot.. what do you know about our Italian culture… let us be who we really are and then maybe we would have got better ratings.”

TLC commissioned eight episodes and four have yet to air. There’s no word on when or if they ever will.

What do you think? Did you like this reality series? Do you think that TLC should air the rest of the episodes?

    Loved, loved, loved this show! Caught all four episodes on rerun one Saturday morning and was hooked immediately. Episode titled “I Change Girlfriends Like I Change My Underwears” just cemented it.

    Please bring it back! I told all my friends about it and then poof! it was nowhere to be found. :(

    who would want to see a show about a bunch of 30 + boy who can’t grow up to be men
    and our proud of it.
    In today society we seem to forget what being a man is I can that borrowing money from women is not being a man being a women beater is not being a man and living at home in your thirties is not being a man, so who want to see that.what next the wife beaters of queens?

    PUT THE SHOW BACK ON TLC! IT WAS PROBABLY ONE BAD APPLE OF A PRODUCER WHO DECIDED TO CANCEL IDIOTS! THESE GUYS ARE GOOD GUYS WITH BIG HEARTS. THIS TOPS “JERSEY SHORE” JERSEY SHORE WAS STUPID AND MINDLESS. IT WAS ALL ABOUT SEX, CHEATING AND FIGHTING. ALL OF US IN STATEN ISLAND WON’T EVER WATCH YOUR NETWORK IF YOU DON’T PUT ON “MAMA’S BOYS FROMTHE BRONX” GOT IT?!
