I’ll admit it, I was a Simple Life fan. Not because I loved Paris or Nicole, but because I love watching dumb people on television. However, Hilton’s new show The World According To Paris, which premiered last Wednesday night on Oxygen, failed to interest me. And apparently I wasn’t alone.
According to reports, Paris’ premiere was only watched by 409,000 viewers– a low number even for Oxygen standards. As a point of reference, more people chose to watch a rerun of Everybody Hates Chris on Nick At Nite or White Chicks on Starz.
So, what happened?! It was only six years ago that The Simple Life premiered and Paris seemed to be on top of the world for doing just about nothing. She even helped launch Kim Kardashian’s socialite reality TV show career (yes, they used to be BFFs back in the day). While I don’t have any answers for you, Lovelies, did you watch Paris’ new show? What did you think if you did? Why do you think it’s failing?
