US network claims decision was based on poor ratings
Cee Lo Green‘s reality TV show The Good Life has been axed after one series.
The TBS network based their decision on poor ratings for the unscripted show, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The series was a fly-on-the-wall look behind the scenes in Green’s life and averaged just 677,000 viewers on average.
The decision comes in the same week that Green both escaped jail time last month after pleading no contest to drugs charges and was then forced to apologise after tweeting controversial remarks about rape immediately afterwards.
Women’s rights group UltraViolet petitioned TBS to cancel The Good Life following his Twitter comments. The singer has apologised for his tweets and deleted his account on the social networking site on September 2 after posting a series of tweets relating to his recent court case in which he pleaded no contest to supplying ecstasy to a woman.
Green escaped jail time last month after pleading no contest to drugs charges. The singer was accused of secretly slipping ecstasy into the drink of his dinner date at a sushi restaurant in July 2012, and was sentenced to three years of formal probation and ordered to complete 360 hours of community service.
