For every hit reality TV show there’s been two that have failed miserably. The recipe for reality TV is pretty simple – train wreck. If you can find the most drama among the wealthy than you should be OK. Kardashians, Real Housewives, etc. equals drama and wealth. You’d think Lindsay Lohan would be a home run in reality TV as well, but you’d be wrong if you do.
According to reports, Lohan’s new reality TV show on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network is tanking miserably. The show apparently started out with decent ratings, but has since seen a downhill plummet that indicates there is no saving her. From episode one to two there was a dip in viewership by 24%. If there’s any indication that people didn’t like the show, look no further than that.
The show debuted on March 9th to close to 700,000 viewers. Instead of picking up steam, the second show aired to just over 500,000 with lower numbers expected for episodes three and four. This comes as horrible news for Lohan because there are other reports surfacing that she has already blown through the $2 million she was given for the show. She’s still not in dire straights for money, but you could see this one coming a mile a way. If you can say anything about Lohan, it’s she has been somewhat resourceful despite all of her issues.
