“Love Connection” is no more.
FOX has officially canceled the Andy Cohen-hosted series after just 2 seasons on the air. The news comes several months after the series wrapped up its second season last September. Cohen himself confirmed the cancellation during a radio appearance on “The Howard Stern Show” this morning.
A reboot of the Chuck Woolery-hosted series from the 80s and 90s, “Love Connection” focused on single men and women trying to fall in love, being set up on dates, and discussing their relationship goals and struggles with Cohen.
Never much of a ratings hit to begin with, “Love Connection” averaged a 0.5 live + same day rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 1.58 million viewers throughout its second season, down from its first season’s 0.7 and 2.34 million viewer averages. As a result of the show’s low ratings performance, its cancellation doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
The news also comes as FOX maintains its commitment to its unscripted titles, with the renewal of its rookie smash hit, “The Masked Singer,” last month, and the 2-season renewal of Gordon Ramsay’s “Hell’s Kitchen” yesterday.
