Skins MTV CANCELED

esq-01-skins-mtv-lg


MTV canceled controversial teen soap ‘Skins’ because it didn’t bring in enough viewers to green-light a 2nd season: ”Skins’ is a global television phenomenon that, unfortunately, didn’t connect with a US audience as much..

..as we had hoped.’ There are six new series set to premiere on the network this fall: ‘Awkward,’ ‘Beavis and Butt-head,’ ‘Good Vibes,’ ‘I Just Want My Pants Back,’ ‘Death Valley’ and ‘Inbetweeners.’

    I’m wondering if they are going to do a new thing/type of Beavis and Butt-head or just show reruns?

    awww i liked that show…but i never saw the UK version but my friends said the UK one was better anyway…but oh well another show that didnt last but only one sesason….

    This show was way too inappropriate. I’m sorry, but it doesn’t do anything positive for this world…

  • Rachel

    honestly, i loved the us version and im sad that its canceled.i was waiting and waiting for an update to know if there would be another season.

    the next one to go will be Teen Wolf. Seriously, all u see on TV now a days is crappy reality shows (which half aren’t even real), Too Many Vampire Werewolves Shows, and other mess. And I agree with others, why call it The MUSIC TELEVISION if u don’t even play music anymore. MTV died when TRL went off air

    they have several mtv channels that mostly play music but there maine one hardly ever does.. lol in the early am it does…

    The only successful shoes on tv now are jersey shore and 16 and Pregnant.

    You’re only talking about most successful REALITY shows right?! Because those are certainly NOT the most successful overall shows right now….

    this is why i don’t really want to start watching new tv shows untill they’ve passed seasons one and two because if you fall in a love with a tv show it could get cut. :(

    It was a really poor decision on their part to air it on MTV. I know they thought it was a good choice because MTV is such a staple in American TV, but it would’ve gone over much better on a channel like HBO or Showtime.

    I know how hard Bryan Elsley worked to get US Skins to be successful. But, it’s definitely a learning process.

    it always will be

    im actually really annoyed it was cancelled. I loved that show..

    nope, not upset, the show sucked.

    I really liked the US version of Skins before I had seen the UK original. 8m not really upset about it because a show like skins is not meant for American television. It is too close to being borderline HBO . It wouldn’t have lasted another season anyway. I also think it didn’t last because it was on NYC. The only successful shoes on tv now are jersey shore and 16 and Pregnant.

    Because NOBODY watched them. MTV stopped playing music videos because they got horrible ratings and reality/scripted shows get better ratings. Maybe if all the people who complain about MTV not playing music anymore had actually watched it when it was playing music it would still be playing music.

    MTV is a sellout, 99% of its programming today is garbage, and it was only good in the 80s and early 90s

    MTV should try and bring music videos back for the younger generation. We haven’t even had a chance. Yeah, they show JumpStart in the mornings, but we’re at school.
    Also, usually the other channels are showing stuff like Classic 80’s Videos or just a certain genre.
    I think MTV should just do a test run of some kind of all music video show that shows ALL types of videos.
    Ones from previous decades, pop, punk, rock, alternative. Just give us a chance to have MTV go back to music.

    Whatever, that’s just what I think…also, I kind of liked Skins for a few episodes, but I watched some of the Brit version and it blew the US out of the water.

    i liked skins uk nd didnt give the us skins the time of day.

  • justlaugh

    I’m not mad… I’m super fucking mad. So what if this show isn’t as good as the British version? It can’t compare to it, no, but it sure as hell was good and it just sucks that people didn’t watch it and gave it a chance because it was a remake. There are so many show’s out there that suck ass and they keep running. It’s like why the hell? Guh, I just can’t. I’m so pissed.

    LEAVE THE INBETWEENERS ALONE! Don’t even go there. It’s amazing and if they do an American version of it, you can pretty much guarentee it will be complete and utter bollocks.

  • Anonymous

    Yea, they’re gonna cancel the American version of Skins because it sucked! Why can’t MTV just leave British shows alone? Why do they have to make an American version of most foreign shows?! Honestly, they need to leave INBETWEENERS ALONE! The British version is fantastic as it is and don’t need butchering from MTV.

    Yea the show SKINS did connect with the US but it was the UK SKINS that it connected to. The US censored so many things that does happen in real life, and it sucked. i’m kind of glad cause it was giving us a bad rep with UK.

    The acting was terrible and the actors/actresses didn’t even fit that part that they had. UK will ALWAYS be better.

  • MileySnuggle

    Finally it was about time to be canceled,the US version sucks anyway
