MTV recently announced that the network would emphasize shows featuring "affirmation and accomplishment." This is why it launched new programs yesterday featuring testosterone-ridden douchenozzles and a girl who doesn't work. So how did they fare?
Not so well, says THR. The City, Whitney Port's NYC-set spinoff of The Hills, lured 1.6 million viewers—down 38% from last week's Hills episode in a season where The Hills is already down 26% year-to-year. 9pm lead-in Bromance did the show few favors; it averaged 963,000 viewers. Sorry, Audrina: this means your planned revival of the seminal Eric Nies starrer The Grind goes back to development hell.
