We have some apparent TV cancellation news — and it’s not good if you are a fan of Paris Hilton. According to Vulture, “The World According to Paris” has not been picked up by Oxygen for a second season.
Things were looking bad from the start when it came to this show. The premiere episode only brought in around 400,000 — and unlike another successful Oxygen show in “The Glee Project,” they never improved. Producers obviously had high hopes for making this into a “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” sort of hit, advertising all across the internet and promoting the show frequently on their own network.
So what was the biggest problem with this show? Ultimately, you have to look at the fact that Hilton was already so exposed before this show that no one really felt the need to check out more of it.
Are you surprised to hear this report? (Update: a rep from Oxygen tells me that no formal decision has been made — so we will just wait and see on this subject.)
