It’s not the comeback Lindsay Lohan was hoping for.
The actress’ reality TV show on Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN network started out with decent ratings but has been on a plummet downhill ever since, with her second episode dipping a whopping 24 percent — and more viewers tuning in to watch SpongeBob SquarePants!
Lohan’s show debuted on March 9 with 693,184 viewers and a .56 rating in the key demo of women 25-54 and a .53 rating in the demo of women 18-34.
But on the troubled starlet’s second episode, only 527,000 viewers tuned in giving Lindsay a 24 percent drop — with even lower ratings for the third and fourth episode expected.
What’s more, Nickelodeon’s animated hit show SpongeBob SquarePants airs on the same night as Lohan’s show but brings in a staggering average of more than 3 million viewers per episode.
When it comes to OWN’s key demo of women 25-54, Lohan, 27, isn’t helping the network at all. Instead, shows like Tyler Perry‘s The Haves and the Have Nots and Love Thy Neighbor both bring in millions of viewers.
Already half-way through the eight-week docu-series airing, Lohan has already blown through the $2 million paycheck she received, Radar exclusively revealed on Tuesday.
Living lavishly and above her means, an insider told Radar, “Only Lindsay could get paid such a large paycheck and once again be in dire financial straits,” a source told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “After Lindsay’s manager, agent, publicist [and taxes] were paid … she was left with $750,000.
“This was last year, and Lindsay has never been able to save any money in her life. Her reality show has been sold overseas, but she will only get $250,000. That money gets divided up among her team, and Lindsay is left with less than $100,000.”
