TV Show Pitchmen Pulled from the Discovery Channel

by Reviews 22. September 2010 06:45


The unscripted reality show Pitchmen has been pulled after just two episodes of it's second season after showing low ratings. The show that featured Bill Mays and Anthony Sullivan during the first season averaged about 1.4 million viewers over it's 13 episode season. After Bill Mays died in his sleep last year the show decided to go on without him, putting Anthony Sullivan in the driver's seat. The show just wasn't making the numbers of the first season only averaging about 797,000 viewers per episode.

Discovery decided to pull the show in hopes of finding it a new home in a different time slot. Sullivan is quoted saying that he thinks they made the right decision. He believes that Discovery believes in the show and simply need to find it a new time slot.

I didn't really watch much of the first season, but I started watching this season and I thought it was a great show. It's neat to get to see people's different ideas and what works and what doesn't in the infomercial market. It's also really interesting to get to see the different prototypes they go through before you see the final product. The people on the show are heart warming and viewer really wants them to succeed with their product. I hope to see Pitchmen back on the air soon, because I can't wait to see what new products they have in store for use next.
