Chrisley Knows Best dad Todd Chrisley definitely does not know best about how to deliver a hit spinoff, as RadarOnline.com exclusively learned the plastic patriarch’s show starring kids Savannah and Chase is facing the axe over disastrous ratings!
According to Showbiz daily, the premiere episode of Growing Up Chrisley, which aired on Tuesday, April 2 on USA, bombed in ratings — ranking in 20th place!
Shockingly, they big debut was seen by only 600,000 viewers. In comparison, Chrisley Knows Best was seen by 1.8 million viewers on average last season.
In terms of demographics, Savannah, 21, and brother Chase 22, failed at bringing in fans! Growing up Chrisley scored a 2.3, which is more than three times less than the solid 7.8 rating of Chrisley Knows Best.
So, what went wrong?
“Basically, no one cares what Savannah and Chase are doing unless they are doing it with their father Todd,” the source told Radar.
Hoping to score ratings gold, Savannah also announced her engagement to NHL star boyfriend Nic Kerdiles, 25, on the same day as the show premiered. The former beauty pageant queen and her Hollywood hopeful brother did a lot of promotion as well.
“They were sure it was going to be a hit and they were clearly wrong. The storyline is just generic and neither one of them are entertaining. If Todd doesn’t do something his bragging rights are going to expire.”
