The CW Cancels Reality Series Famous in 12

Famous in 12? More like Canceled in 5, am I right? The CW has pulled the reality series, which it billed as a social experiment, after just five weeks, according to The Wrap. Repeats of Arrow will now air in the Tuesday at 8pm time slot.

Famous in 12 followed a family attempting to make it big in Hollywood within a 12-week timeframe. They were assisted in their endeavors by the upstanding folks over at TMZ, who created opportunities for them to breeze through popular celebrity hotspots. In case you're still not clear on why The CW canceled the series, this is actually something one of the cast members said: "Should I? Should I have sex on camera?"


I shouldn't ask, but will you miss Famous in 12

The great thing about experiments: A negative result is still a result.

Instead of reruns of Arrow (which is still infinitely better than what it replaced) how about trying to bring back something like The Tomorrow People???? Another Nikita mini-series? You know, anything new?!?!?

They want more original year round programming and they can only show a rerun twice before having to pay more from what I understand.Plus ,those shows you mentioned were cancelled after a season ,by the end of the season no one was watching the first time, so why would they suddenly start watching reruns?The reality/unscripted shows are cheap to produce.Most of thier shows,which are serialized, don't repeat well anyway in ratings.

Cult was way too meta for its own good.

So not surprised.

It's fairly clear they failed at becoming famous. Otherwise they would have been known about before the show aired.

Nice, my cynicism about humanity has been decreased 0.0001% by this news. That's not much but still better than a sharp stick in the eye.

And what kind of esteemed program will replace it? Repeats of Oh Sit!?

I'm sure VH1 or Bravo would love to put a show like this in their lineup. Or is it too classy for them?

I picture TLC executives salivating over the prospect of snapping this up.

Great! They can add Jon and Kate to this.

I won't lie I ate up the Jon & Kate Plus 8 stuff for quite a while, but she's a complete trainwreck now.

Kate's hairdo used to look like a bird's nest.

I guess the CW is improving. Surprising.

You don't need reality TV to get famous.

You do if you have no talent.
