Ryan Seacrest Fired: ‘Knock Knock Live’ Canceled After Two Episodes
FOX has pulled the plug on Knock Knock Live starring Ryan Seacrest. This is the second major flop for the American Idol host.
Back in 2013, Seacrest headlined The Million Second Quiz on NBC to much fanfare but it didn’t get traction in the ratings.
Knock Knock Live fared even worse. According to THR:
The Ryan Seacrest-hosted wish-fulfillment series bowed to a 0.6 ratings and 1.75 million viewers July 21, one of the network’s lowest series debuts ever. Week two, which included a Justin Bieber cameo, scored a 0.5 in the coveted demo, with an even more dismal 1.6 million total viewers.
American Idol will have its final season in 2016. Will Ryan Seacrest be able to work as a host of a regular show after that?
