Yesterday GU.com reported on the good news that rapper-turned-actor Ice-T was riding high with the success of his hip-hop documentary getting picked up at the Sundance Film Festival. But it seems while its peaks on one side of the coin, it’s valleys on the other as word on the curb is that E! is not happy with the ratings of his reality show.
My source, who wishes to remain anonymous, just sent me over this juicy tidbit:
E Network has lost hope in their “Ice Loves Coco” reality show.
Season two is starting this month and the executives over at E are complaining that they are too boring, even suggesting they hire their own PR company to drum up attention for the new season. Its been suggested that Coco leak some risqué photos to the net (so look for those coming to you next I suppose).
Complaints such as “Ice and Coco are boring, all Ice t does is play video games”, and “Coco is trying too hard to be like Kim Kardashian”
The crew has already been told that there will not be a 3rd season. Ratings for the first were subpar (you can see ratings here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_Loves_Coco) and they expectations by executives at E are dismal in comparison.
Oh and, Marc Live, who appeared as Ice T’s side-kick in a few episodes of season 1 and who is listed as a co-producer, was fired for abusing alcohol on the set and being too drunk to perform his duties outside of filming.
You guys know that I don’t watch reality television. But, as far as hype goes Ice and CoCo needs some serious help because I haven’t heard fans chiming in at all on this show.
What do you think? Are you watching? If not you might want to hurry up. Allegedly of course.
