Are you watching Boy Band? Recently, ABC boss Channing Dungey addressed the uncertain future of the TV show, AdWeek reports.
Hosted by Rita Ora, the competitive reality show features still-undiscovered singers facing off to become part of the next music phenomenon. The judges include Tim Mosley (a.k.a. Timbaland), Nick Carter, and Emma Bunton.
Boy Band premiered back in June to disappointing ratings and things have not improved of the course of the summer. So far, season one is averaging a .56 rating in the 18-49 demo and only 2.535 million viewers, making it one of ABC’s lowest-rated series for the summer 2017 season.
During this summer’s TCA press conference, Dungey admitted Boy Band has been a disappointment for ABC:
Boy Band was a creative swing for us that we were excited to explore. …It didn’t connect with audiences in quite the way we’d hoped.”
It’s still unclear if ABC will renew Boy Band or cancel the freshman series. But with American Idol coming, it seems unlikely the show will continue. What do you think? Are you a fan of Boy Band? Would you watch a second season?
