Bad acting? Poor ratings? Who knows. But for whatever reason, Single Ladies has been kicked to the curb.
According To The Hollywood Reporter:
VH1 will not continue on with Single Ladies.
The music-themed cable network has opted to cancel the hour-long dramedy after three seasons, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
“We’ve been proud to deliver three seasons of the drama, romance and style that engaged viewers in each episode of Single Ladies,” VH1 said in a statement. “Although we’ve decided not to move forward with another season, we hope to work again with the talented cast, creatives and producers as well as our partners at Flavor Unit Entertainment inthe near future.
We also thank the show’s fans for their support since the premiere in 2011.”
The series, which stars Charity Shea, Denise Vasi and LisaRaye McCoy, is currently wrapping up its third run on the network — which used an e-book written by New York Times best-selling author Ashley Antoinette to bridge the gap between its second and third seasons.
Single Ladies centered on three best friends with different philosophies on love, sex and relationships, proving that not all women have the same desires. The series had survived some cast turnovers when Vasi replaced former lead Stacey Dash, who exited the series in its second season.
In its third season, Single Ladies is averaging 2.2 million total viewers, on par with its sophomore run.
