VH1 just put one of its highest rated shows on the chopping block. Top level execs at the network are telling MTO News that Love & Hip Hop Miami may have just filmed its last season.
According to a high-level executive, VH1 appears to be planning on canceling Love & Hip Hop Miami - making all of the show's stars unemployed. The decision has not yet been finalized - but it doesn't look good for the Miami franchise of VH1s top show.
The exec, who asked to remain nameless, told MTO News, "Love & Hip Hop is our top franchise, so we have to protect it and only have strong spin-offs. Atlanta, New York, and Hollywood are all doing well. Miami hasn't performed."
The executive added, "Love & Hip Hop Miami drew in about the same ratings as Black Ink Chicago. But Black Ink costs less than half as much to produce."
VH1 already announced that they plan on rolling out a few more "Black Ink" cities. Next year Black Ink Compton will be launched. And there are talks of a Black Ink Atlanta also.
So what's going to happen to the cast? The exec explained, "We'll try and place some of them on other shows. Otherwise, they're on their own."
