Bristol Palin Reality Show: Pulled From Prime Time, Replaced By Dance Moms Re-Runs!

by at . Comments

Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp is so unpopular, it can't even beat a RERUN of Dance Moms on Lifetime. So it's been pushed to 11 p.m., according to reports.

Lifetime will now be airing a new Dance Moms episode at 9 p.m. Tuesdays, followed by a repeat at 10 p.m. in Bristol's old slot, then Palin afterward.

The season premiere of Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp aired June 19 to abysmal ratings and worse reception from critics. It may be the worst show ever.

Bristol Palin Book Signing

It eked out a total audience of 726,000 viewers, many of whom probably hated it pretty bad, and a meager 0.2 rating in the key 18-49 demographic.

The show follows the daughter of former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin as she lives in an L.A. mansion and volunteers for charity.

Bristol Palin also rides a mechanical bull and so forth.

She brings along little Tripp, of course, her son by Levi Johnston, who turned down money to appear on the show because it's too bad for even him.

What's more, Kyle Massey, Bristol's former friend and DWTS co-star, is suing Lifetime claiming he created the idea and was screwed out of the project.

You might not want to claim credit for this debacle, K.

Bristol and her Mommy are trying so hard to copy the Kardashians. They picked Kate Gosselin's brain about how to get a network to air a reality series about their family and also how to get on Dancing with the Stars. Then Sarah and her Daddy Dearest filmed the episode with the Gosselins visiting in the most unflattering way--and the the Pitbull stepped in when Kate's show was cancelled and took over. Kardashians made a big thing of the phony wedding between Kris and Kim and they got a lot of money and attention. Now Palins are using Gino in the same way--anything to get the Palins attention.

I love the show. Great family. What a refreshing change from other reality shows. I agree not everyone likes it because it doesn't have sex, drugs, and alcohol.

I love this show. The main reason I think it is not popular is because unlike other current reality tv shows, Bristol has brains, the main focus of the show is not sex, the show is not filled with idiots who swear up and down every 3 seconds, and everyone loves to hate on the Palin family (which I do not understand because this family is an example of the few honest, good, and intelligent families left in this country). Although I am not a young mother, I can relate with Bristol and her family. It is nice to watch a reality tv show that doesn't dumb me down everytime I watch it. Bristol -- you go girl keep it up!!

Any1 who supports Bristol & Willows behavior needs help! They are disrespectful & arrogant! They treat ppl awful...even 1s they are supposed to love. This show wont b picked up for a 2nd season. If u want the other side of the story...go to Levi's FB page. I dont like him, either, but Bristol wants every1 to think she tries to get L & Tripp together...There's always stipulations.

At first I wasn't sure about wasitng my time watching another dumb reality show, but after watching it I now dvr every episode. I have a lot of respect for her now and hate to hear the ratings are falling short.

I never liked her or her mom one but, but was bored one night and love reality TV so I gave it a shot and have actually come to respect her. I didn't think it was bad at all, I actually set my dvr to record it. :)

What I think is that she is just after money ever since she was on the dancing with the stars! She wasn't even good it was so bad that me and my mom thought that she should been off the first week! She just thinks that everyone likes her because she got in to the finial three!
