Please don’t hurt me, Hammer, but…The premiere of MC Hammer’s reality show, Hammertime on A&E averaged a very modest 1.123 million on Sunday night at 10pm. I hate to say it was edged out by a rerun of Cold Case at 1am on a Tuesday morning. But it was.
And despite the fact that it didn’t have a million dollars worth of Google Adsense ads promoting it, a years old That’s So Raven repeat at 11:30 on a Wednesday had (just) over 2 million viewers.
Too legit to quit? Not with these numbers. It wasn’t even among the 15 most-watched shows on A&E. Of course the most-watched show on A&E was Dog The Bounty Hunter (1.9 million), with Intervention (1.84 million) and Obsessed (1.81 million) and of course, CSI Miami reruns doing well. But Hammer was also beaten by a repeat of Criminal Minds (1.518 million), Crime 360, The First 48, Gene Simmons a repeat of Independence Day more CSI Miami reruns and Tattoo Highway.
People apparently confused “can’t touch this” with “don’t touch this.”
