I’ve enjoyed “Platinum Hit” for what it’s worth. But clearly not many others are. The show, which features Jewel and “Idol” refugee judge Kara DioGuardi, has been drawing fewer and fewer viewers each week since its debut.
On June 27, the last time it aired on Monday, the show drew a mere 397,000 viewers.
That is far less than any of Bravo’s “Real Housewives” shows and even fewer than its “Project Runway” ripoff “Fashion Show.”
So Bravo, instead of canceling it outright, is burying it at 8 p.m. Fridays. I have it on DVR so I’ll keep tracking it. What do you think went wrong with this show?
I have found both Kara and Jewel a bit chilly but not repulsive. A handful of the contestants have shown enough personality to be passably memorable, including Jes Hudack and Jackie Tohn, the two former “Idol’ contestants. Mr. Eye Roller Nick Nittoli is the token villain. Jes and Johnny Marnell have fallen in love (or at least, deep infatuation.) Overall, the songs they’ve created haven’t been bad considering the circumstance.
Personally, I am a softie for competition shows. I watch most of them, from ‘Top Chef” to “Food Network Star” to “HGTV Design Star.” Too bad this one didn’t work out.
