Fox has yanked “Knock Knock Live” after just two episodes. In its place, Fox will air reruns of Will Forte’s “Last Man on Earth” and Andy Samberg’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
Ryan Seacrest’s “Knock Knock Live” failed to connect with an audience, suffering poor ratings in both of its original episodes. The series premiere, which featured an appearance by David Beckham, brought in a soft 0.5 rating and just 1.7 million total viewers, per Nielsen’s fast national numbers.
Episode 2, which featured Justin Bieber, managed the same rating as the debut, but lost 100,000 total viewers.
“Knock Knock Live” saw Seacrest hosting in-studio, with co-hosts Kellie Pickler, Ross Mathews, Adrienne Bailon, Jordan “Shorty” Johnson, Chuey Martinez and Tyler Posey working the field.
The impromptu game show was produced by XIX Entertainment and Dick Clark Productions. Simon Fuller, Michael Herwick, Allen Shapiro, Mike Mahan, Mark Bracco, Stijn Bakkers, Nicolle Yaron, and Seacrest served as executive producers.
Fuller, Seacrest, DCP and Fox are stakeholders in the format worldwide. Fuller’s business XIX Entertainment has appointed DCP to be the international distributor of the format and series.
