Last week Nick Cannon quit his hosting gig on America's Got Talent after bumping heads with producers over his racially charged stand-up comedy special [click here if you missed that].
Is Nick's other job in jeopardy, too...?
Sure sounds like it.
From The Wrap
The future of “Caught on Camera With Nick Cannon” is still undecided at the network level, TheWrap has learned. And even if the multi-hyphenate isn’t currently burning his bridge with NBC executives, the economics of more episodes may not work out.
That’s not necessarily because of how much third-year series “Caught on Camera” costs — any first-year Accounting major knows strong revenue can offset some bills. Unfortunately, the plug-and-play series has managed just a 0.7 Nielsen rating among adults 18-49 thus far this season, on average, and 3.2 million total viewers. Those soft numbers are inclusive of a week’s worth of delayed viewing, which means advertisers aren’t quite enamored with a 30-second sales opportunity on this one.
