Ryan Lochte Reality Series Canceled After One Season

Ryan Lochte Reality Series Canceled After One Season

10:10 AM PDT 9/19/2013 by Lesley Goldberg

The E! series featuring the Olympic swimmer ended its run in May and averaged 440,000 total viewers over its eight-episode run.

E! is no longer swimming alongside Olympian Ryan Lochte.

The cable network has opted to cancel unscripted entry What Would Ryan Lochte Do? after one low-rated season, sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter.

As first reported by TV Line, the series that followed the Olympic swimmer training for the 2016 Games, his personal life and empire, ended its eight-episode run in May averaging just 440,000 total viewers. (Meanwhile, a source close to E! says the network does want to work with the athlete and personality again in the future.)

The series received a sizable marketing push for the gold medalist in April, but opened to a paltry 807,000 viewers, losing nearly half of its E! news special lead-in featuring Ryan Seacrest interviewing the Kardashian family.

Lochte fielded multiple reality show offers after sporting a diamond American-flag grill at the summer Olympics and ultimately landed the docuseries at E! after guest roles on 30 Rock and 90210.

Reasons why nobody watched:

1. He's a drooling moron that can barely put a sentence together

2. Reality show fatigue - even the dolts that watch the Kardashians and trash like that are getting burned out. Cancel them next, please.

But, what is this cat's story? Gay or straight? Or, is he one of those straights who gets off because gay men find him so hot but will never have him? He has worked in fashion. The design and wearing of the pink speedos makes my heart palpitate... (just thinking of that image causes my breathing to become labored)

Is he another Bobby Cannavale?

Flat ass and stupid.

"I mean, is he educable?"

I would happily work with him. I would love to teach him the art of proper cocksucking and anal relaxation techniques.

I would be patient.

Pot, kettle and all that.

On the plus side, the poor thing is so dumb he doesn't even remember having a TV show.

When they tried to script me with a lot of words, my mind got all lochte'd up.

Darn! And he's straight, too, like I am. And equally talented and well-spoken!

What Would Ryan Lochte Do....if his show got canceled

Oh thank God.

THANK you, R4. I don't know why people find him hot with that flat booty. It's horrible. Plus his haircuts are always bad.

by Anonymousreply 1609/19/2013

I agree, R16. He has a handsome face but awful ass. Total turn off.

by Anonymousreply 1709/19/2013

I know, right R17. I would think that a swimmer would have a nicer ass than that.

by Anonymousreply 1809/19/2013

Is he smart enough to do pron?

by Anonymousreply 1909/19/2013

I agree that he needs to do something like pose naked to get his name back in the news.

Somewhere, Michael Phelps is smiling (and probably getting high on weed).

Ryan Lochte has an "empire"?

if ure gonna be a man when u have a show then u got be a man wehn you dont have a show

Remember a few months ago he was on a show promoting his t.v. series and the co-hosts laughed after he left about how ridiculous it was?

by Anonymousreply 2409/20/2013

he's an idiot and honestly that reality show was embarrassing for his brand anyway.

R25, I would also add that it shows how the reality show genre itself may have outlived its usefulness.

by Anonymousreply 2709/20/2013

Nice boner though.

by Anonymousreply 2809/20/2013

Ryan should have talked more about his sex life, or shown his naked ass like Johnny Weir did on his show. And revealed whether he is cut, etc.

I'm assuming he did none of that, so it probably was too bland and white bread.

by Anonymousreply 2909/20/2013

I found him very likeable despite his dumbness. True he has a flat ass but he's still sexy and I'd do him if were into guys. The black hanger-on was hotter.

by Anonymousreply 3109/22/2013

Tom Daley is much hotter than Ryan Lochte.

by Anonymousreply 3209/22/2013

Frankly I'm shocked it wasn't canceled after the first episode

by Anonymousreply 3309/22/2013

Has Lochte been reached for comment yet?

by Anonymousreply 3409/22/2013

+1 on R33

But I have one friend who found him charming. Granted, we call her "Rose" to her face, so that tells you something.

by Anonymousreply 3509/22/2013

Lochte is good-looking, but that's all he ever had going for him. He had absolutely no personality and was totally bland.

by Anonymousreply 3609/22/2013

I never knew how unattractive it is to be dumb, until I saw an interview with Ryan.

Wonder what other swimmers think of him.

by Anonymousreply 3909/22/2013

Cock shots?

by Anonymousreply 4009/22/2013

I imagine most of the other swimmers are only marginally less dim than Ryan! Glug glug glug!

by Anonymousreply 4109/22/2013

Does he play with Michael Phelps?

by Anonymousreply 4209/22/2013

He's too nice and thus very boring for tv. He swims, fucks chicks, preens etc. Big deal. They should've have followed around his loose-cannon sister who made the "Asian" comments.

by Anonymousreply 4309/22/2013

Of course, these idiotic shows will be canceled quickly. Even for E! Lochte is ridiculous.

Now, why the hell are the famewhore Kardashians still on the air? It's a rhetorical question. No need to respond. I understand America is the land of dumb and dumber television viewers.

I watched Kradushins alls the time while we eats moms spaghetti wif ketchup.

Uuuhm, does this mean, like there won't be any cameras and stuff any more? Or will they still be there, but they just won't turn them on?
