On her TV show, Supernanny Jo Frost tells overwrought parents that it’s okay to take a break sometimes. Well, that’s just what she’s doing. Frost has decided to walk away from her ABC reality series after six years and seven seasons on the air.
Frost feels that it’s time to focus on having a family of her own. She tells the NY Post that she wants to find more balance in her life, saying, “I have decided to hang up my cape. It was a very conscious decision, through much reflection.”
Frost’s schedule keeps her so busy that she hasn’t even had time to buy a house and stays with her father when she’s in the UK. She said, “[Having children] is not an option when you are traveling and working 46 weeks out of the year. Proper balance will allow me to date and have a relationship and look at my own future of having a family.”
The seventh and final season of Frost’s Supernanny kicked off on Friday. It placed second among viewers 18-49 with a 1.2 rating and 4.79 million in total viewership. According to the network, that’s up 7% from last season’s premiere but they’re hardly impressive numbers.
If the show was performing better, ABC would likely want to replace Frost and keep the series going. Based on the ratings, it’s far more likely that they’ll let the series come to a close when Frost hangs up her cape.
