After just two episodes, ABC has cancelled yet another of its summer reality series with the number “one” in the title. As you might recall, The One: Making A Music Star bit the dust after four episodes just two weeks ago.
One Ocean View aired Monday nights and followed a group of young, attractive New York professionals who spend summer weekends together at a Fire Island beach house. Executive produced by Real World veterans Jonathan Murray and Joey Carson, the castmembers were not only young and attractive but also very successful in the professional world — with jobs like business owner, stockbroker, designer and lawyer. With this carefully-picked cast, it looked like certain romantic relationships were as sure to happen as some of the personality clashes. But, it looks like we’ll never know.
One Ocean View premiered to luke-warm reviews and only 3.6 million viewers when it debuted on July 31st at 10pm. Viewership was reportedly over 20% lower for the second episode so it seems ABC has decided to cut its losses. Four other episodes of the series have been shot but will not air as a result of the cancellation.
For now, ABC will air repeat episodes of Wife Swap and Supernanny to fill the opening in the schedule.
ALOT OF MY FRIENDS AND I STARTED WATCHING THE SHOW AND STARTED GETTING INTERESTED IN THE SHOW AND THE CAST. AND THEN THE NEXT WEEK THE SHOW NEVER AIRED AGAIN WITHOUT ANY NOTIFICATION. HOW DO YOU EXPECT VIEWERS TO WATCH SHOWS ON THE ABC STATION AND GET HOOKED AND THEN JUST TAKE THE SHOW OFF. THE STATION COULD AT LEAST HAVE PLAYED THE REMAINING EPISODES INSTEAD OF RE-RUN SHOWS LIKE SUPERNANNY AND WIFE SWAP, THAT NOBODY WATCHES ANYWAYS. OR AT LEAST GIVE FANS THE OPTION TO WATCH THE EPISODES ONLINE.
I wondered what happened to this show . I loved it and the people they played . It kinda makes you not want to watch or get interested in the new shows if they can just cancel them at their own will. shame on you ABC
Ok, I have a group of friends who loved the show. A girl from work told me about the entire show before I even saw it and I said that I have to see it. Thank God one of my friends Tivoed it and I got to watch it. She loved Zack and I loved KJ. I think there are a lot of viewers, including myself, who would like to see the last 2 episodes. We were just left up in the air:( I don’t think many people are really watching the re-runs of Wife Swap and Supernanny anyway. Please… Read more »
