After watching 50 Cent’s pathetic stab at the reality competition genre over a month ago, I knew that the not even Jesus could save that mess. And alas, He could not. The New York Post gave the word that Fiddy C’s MTV show, 50 Cent: The Money and the Power, has been canceled after six episodes, “a victim of poor ratings and lack of buzz” (source). And may I add a few other things, like low rent, seemingly randomly chosen contestants, crappy production values and lame ass challenges.
Somewhere Kanyakketyak West is laughing his butt off and Diddy is giving a Ciroc and lemonade toast to the true players in the TV game.
