Ratings: Hit the Ceiling

HTF-210

I watched an episode of Hit the Floor last week. To be honest the show kinda sucks. It looks like reality show with gloomier lighting. The acting isn’t great, the dialogue isn’t natural, there’s like 15 people on the cast, none of their storylines are compelling and the transitional music is too loud and long and seems to overcompensate for a lack of setting up a scene. Not my cup of tea. Meanwhile these Wednesday and Thursday shows are on life support. VH1 added a 5th show to the mix last week (though the finale is tomorrow) and these are the lowest ratings I’ve ever seen for a premiere on VH1.

Nicole Richie in "Candidly Nicole" episode 101

So VH1 premiered 4 shows last week and the numbers are all over the place. 2 of them are absolutely done for, 1 is showing some potential and then there’s Candidly Nicole which at the moment can go either way but probably isn’t on the good side of being saved. VH1 almost wishes Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta could do a little better (not that hitting a season high last night is disappointing) so it could shield the carnage from these flops.

BGC-1210-01

I’m not trying to be a conspiracy theorist or anything but you know Oxygen must not care for this season very much when you see we’re 10 episodes in and they have not done the 2 week break thing yet. Sucks because I really need one next week and it doesn’t look like that will happen.
