If it means airing on SyFy, there won’t even be a second episode of this new reality show. SyFy has cancelled Bazillion Dollar Club after one week. Venture Capitalist Dave McClure helms the business start-up series, which also features Highway 1 Vice President, Brady Forrest.
Tech Crunch reports that Forrest said, “It just didn’t gel with the SyFy audience,” adding, “Syfy was on board for the pilot episode, but as often happens with new series, they did not pick up the option for the remaining episodes.” According to Tech Crunch, production company Zero Point Zero is shopping episodes two through six to other outlets.
You may recognize Zero Point Zero from the credits of shows like Mind of a Chef from PBS and CNN‘s Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. For now, file Bazillion Dollar Club under “parts unknown,” too.
What do you think? Did you watch the Bazillion Dollar Club pilot? Would you follow it to another channel?
Great show.. Very informative.. Would love to see it find a home somewhere.. One would think CNBC would be an obvious fit as they air shark tank and the profit.
I will follow the show wherever it goes. Yeah there’s already business based reality shows but not the same as this show. There’s enough demand for multiple Island survival shows, trucker shows, logging shows, cooking shows, Alaskan shows and anything else to do with average people doing blue-collar work. The show makes no sense to be on sci-fi so I understand why their audience wouldn’t enjoy it, they would rather watch aliens and monsters. Cable TV is not The proper medium to use to learn. Example: The history channel now runs pawn shop and storage shows. The truth is average… Read more »
This show was actually pretty good. The pacing was also good. I’ll follow it to wherever it goes.
Amen to that brother!
It’s a very rare reality show that I even bother to watch the first show and this wasn’t one of them. I tried them. I can find better entertainment than shows that show enough nonsense and repeat some things multiple times so that an hour show could easily be edited down from 43 minutes to 12-15 minutes.
That’s how I feel too, Ronald Ridley (I wrote this piece for TVSeriesFinale.com). The teases and repeated scenes within a single episode are a waste of my time. There are already successful business-related reality series on TV (The Apprentice, Shark Tank). I guess I can see why the production company went for one more, but I still can’t make the connection to the SyFy network. I’m not sure why SyFy picked up the pilot in the first place.
