David Hasselhoff’s attempt at reality television lasted no longer than his dancing on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” where he was eliminated the first week. His A&E reality series also lasted just one week.
Ratings for “The Hasselhoffs” were awful on Sunday (12/5). The premiere of the half-hour series was watched by only 718,000 people. The second episode, which followed immediately afterward, drew an audience of only 505,000. The show will not be returning to A&E, even though several more episodes are already in the can.
“The Hoff” reportedly signed to do the reality series as a way to help his daughters, Taylor Ann and Hayley, pursue their own Hollywood careers. If nothing else, they’ve learned how tough show business can be.
