The world of ratchet reality television can be pretty cut-throat some times when a show under performs, so because of that we see a lot of shows come and go very fast, but every now and then a series comes along that has just enough energy behind it to grab the attention of ratchet reality TV fans and also please the grumpy futon critics..
The genre just landed another slam dunk with the addition of WeTV’s Cutting It In The ATL scoring major ratings during its premiere season and garnering enough social media buzz to make the network stand at attention, so I guess it’s safe to say that the ladies can expect to see a slightly bigger budget for Season 2..
WE tv has greenlit a second season of its newest hit original series Cutting It: In the ATL following a strong freshman season which reached 4.5 million total viewers. Signaling growing interest in the series, the finale ranked as the most watched episode of the season. WE tv has ordered 10 one-hour episodes, up from nine in season one. Across the cable landscape, Cutting It: In the ATL ranked as a top five new unscripted summer series among women 25-54, and a top five freshman series on WE tv among all key adult and female demos and total viewers.
The show also ranked as the second highest rated new original unscripted series on cable this summer among all key African American demos.“It’s more challenging than ever to get viewers interested in a new show, particularly with an urgency to watch live, and the first season of ‘Cutting It’ accomplished both,” said Marc Juris, WE tv’s president. -WeTV
