LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The introduction for Lauren Conrad’s canceled MTV reality show for 2011 has been released. And while LC’s show intro is drawing top praise from fans, it’s also drawing resounding criticism against MTV for canceling the program before it even aired.
In September 2010, LALATE first announced that Conrad’s new reality show would land at MTV. Lauren Conrad’s reality show was picked up by MTV after months of multiple networks allegedly fighting for broadcast rights.
Earlier that same year, Conrad had told news that she wanted to return to reality TV but on her own terms. “The only way I’d return to reality television would be if it allowed me to decide when the cameras stop,” she previously told US Magazine. Conrad had previously told fans in 2009 that she had struggled with “putting my personal relationships and struggles on television” previously.
Less than one month later, Conrad’s bosses Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley left MTV.
Suddenly, in February, MTV canceled the show before even airing a single episode. In a statement to news at the time, Conrad said ”MTV felt the subject matter was too high brow for their audience and offered me the opportunity to change the show by incorporating more of my personal life….We delivered the show that we sold and are sorry MTV didn’t feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it.”
Today fans are supporting Conrad.”Everyone would be watching this” and “agree with you, I would have totally watched this” are among the comments in support of Conrad heating up YouTube today.
