Fashion Star cancelled, having actually already aired a second season
NBC’s Fashion Star was cancelled, which is less surprising than the fact that it was renewed for a second season that aired this spring. Although the show was slightly retooled, with a new host and a new sponsor (Express instead of H&M), it was pushed to Fridays and all but ignored.
Saturday, the network’s entertainment president, Bob Greenblatt, told a group of reporters, “no,” when asked if it would return; The Hollywood Reporter describes his response to its question as “swift and firm.”
Its second-season ratings were pretty bad, with only 2.5 million people watching the finale, and a significant drop for its rating between seasons among younger viewers for the finale (1.6 to .5).
