Not even an all-star line up with the two of the most talked about booties in the industry – that of Jennifer Lopez‘s and Nicki Minaj‘s – were enough to resurrect the ratings of Fashion Rocks.
Taking a 6 year hiatus from television, the showing that aims to marry the hottest music with the hottest trends in fashion – fell flat with reports of less than half the ratings attributed to its 2008 showing.
Could it signal an end for the show?
“It was not a triumphant comeback for Fashion Rocks. The TV event, which spotlights the intersection of the fashion and music industries, returned to CBS on Tuesday night and only drew 2.4 million viewers, a 0.6 share rating among 18- to 49-year-olds, according to Nielsen Media Research.
That’s less than half the size of the audience that tuned in to the last Fashion Rocks telecast in 2008 (5.242 million viewers), and quite a bit behind NBC’s Tuesday night time-slot winner America’s Got Talent, which drew 9.37 million viewers.”
