It looks like Fashion Star won’t be back next year. At NBC’s session at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt confirmed that the TV series has been cancelled.
Featuring Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and John Varvatos as mentors and Louise Roe as host, Fashion Star could hardly be called a rating success.
The second (and final) season averaged a meager 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.76 million total viewers. The last episode aired on May 10th.
What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that Fashion Star won’t be back for a third season? What did you like or dislike about the series?
This was such a great show! It was pretty much the only one our whole family could agree on watching. We are very disappointed there isn’t going to be another season.
I’m disappointed to hear this. My husband and I both really enjoyed this show.
Maybe the problem wasn’t “Fashion Stars” but the company that does the reviews. Seems they poll the wrong people, none of us were on the poll. My wife and I watched the show faithfully.
Bob Greenblatt may be NBC’s entertainment chairman but he apparently doesn’t know a good show when he sees it, if he really did ever watch it. It may not of had a lot of blood, gore and fowl language but the wife and I never missed an episode. If was exciting to see people strive to create fashions that would be bought by the big retailers. Maybe the show would have been picked up again if the looser would have cursed out the buyers then the buyers would have opened up on then with automatic weapons.
I really thought it was a good show. Guess I was one of the five people that tuned in faithfully. Oh well, I guess shallow shows rule for now. Says something about us as a people.
One of seven then, the wife and I really enjoyed it also.
I though it was a far better series than a lot of the crap that comes back over and over again. Ah, America’s Next Top Model coes to mind, along with all of the horrid UNreal reality housewive, various dating show snoozes . . .
