MTV has canceled “The City” after two seasons. This really isn’t shocking news to me. While I watched “The City,” I never thought Whitney Port carried the show. It was the sideline drama that really made no sense but was still entertaining between Olivia Palermno and Erin Kaplan (interesting read in the LA Times “‘The City’ exclusive: Erin Kaplan unleashes on Olivia Palermo and the finale“)
Here’s a link to the audio from “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” October 25, 2010 interview with Whitney “It’s Official: Whitney Port says ‘The City’ is canceled.” Whitney also took to her blog yesterday to confirm the news.
We still have Lauren Conrad’s new show coming to MTV called “Lauren Conrad: Fiercely Fashionable” which I’ve written about HERE and my tweeps over at Hills Freak have also posted on their blog. I don’t think the two shows could share the spotlight on MTV without one or both tanking.
I’d say that Kelly Cuttrone would probably scoop Whitney up for her Bravo show “Kell on Earth,” but the general consensus, although not official, is that the show will not go on to a second season. However, Styleite wrote a piece back in August picking up on Kelly Cuttrone’s tweets insinuating that she has a new scripted show coming out on MTV (read “Kelly Cutrone Announces New ‘Scripted’ Show“). It makes sense since I’ve read that MTV is moving in a direction of more scripted and less reality programming (although some might make a fair argument that there really is no difference when it comes to MTV).
