Not even a skilled Baywatch lifeguard could resuscitate The Hasselhoffs after the first two episodes aired to dismal ratings.
On Friday, December 10th, A&E announced that that were removing the reality show The Hasselhoffs from their Sunday night schedule. The Hasselhoffs featured former Baywatch and Knight Rider star David Hasselhoff and his two daughters, who are aspiring to get into showbiz. According to The Nielsen Co. the first episode was seen by 718,000 viewers but that the audience hit low tide at 505,000 the second week. This ratings drop translates to meaning that more than half the people who watched the show “Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels,” which preceded The Hasselhoffs turned away from it in droves once Simmons show, which has an audience of 1.4 million, was over.
There are eight completed episodes of The Hasselhoffs that will remain unaired as A&E has no plans at this time to bring the series back.
