Who's Even Left? Skins Loses MORE Sponsors!

| Filed under: TV NewsMTVSad Sad

Wow. It's almost painful, watching this show die its slow, painful death.

Although both Red Bull and Clearasil both maintained that they would not follow the path of other traditional marketers and shun the controversial MTV remake of the British TV series, Skins, neither product had commercials in last night's episode, which also garnered less than one million viewers once again!

We guess it can't be the "most dangerous show" on television if no one is watching it!

Oh well. If by some miracle, this series does survive and get a new season, we hope that they start with what little originality they mustered this season and expand upon it, instead of just clumsily rehashing and watering down the original again.

Maybe then they can secure a fanbase instead of pissing off the fans of the original and ostracizing new viewers.

It's your choice, guys! Just saying!

    Just wondering - is anyone watching this show? I mean actually following it, watching it when nothing else is on. I really have yet to meet someone who watches the US version …

    i will say that i am a die hard fan of the original UK series and although the American version is nowhere near as good as the original, dare i say the last 2 episodes were finally watchable. if the remaining episodes remain that caliber, i will continue to watch. and further more, just because teem mom 2 (ick) and jersey shore gets humungous rating, all the other mtv shows, not just skins, get very low rating. do ur homework perez…

    I'm from England, and really? You call that watered down pile of wank the most dangerous show on TV? I'm guessing you'd self destruct if you watched our, better, original one.

    Years ago, MTV was about music and fun stuff. Not pumping kids' nascent sexuality to pimp worthless products.

    As someone very well beyond my teenage years, I've been watching SKINS and think it a very good show. I've seen a few episodes of the British version and wasn't really interested. I watch a lot of British shows, but not their SKINS. What I think people here are not realizing or looking closer @ is the message. Immediately people scream outrage because it involves young teens, but upon closer view, you'll see the root of each character and their perception of the adults & classmates in their life and how it directly influences their behaviour. The kids basically, out of retaliation, resentment, confusion, lonliness and feeling neglected, tries very hard to overcompensate by being badasses with sex, drugs & liquor. The parents do not lead by example and the kids feel the need to take over & control of their own lives…

    Seriously hate the American version, it's a bad knock-off of the original which I love. The characters can't even act….and all the lines are the same. After watching three seasons of the original Skins this one can't even hold a candle to it. I don't think I could watch season after season of the same lines just badly acted. I hope this version dies, just edit the UK one and put in on the air here.

    The reason that British shows do well here is because we actually make them good and worth watching ..Nobody cares about Europe this is the fucking United States ..we decide what's in and what's out … This is without a doubt one of the best shows on TV right now

    Re: stevehousse – i agree….the last couple episodes have been really well done.
    the shows gotten a little better as its gone on.

    I watch it and love it. It gives good input on why teens do what they do.. If you had watched the show u would know they all have shitty parents. Michelles mom fucks a new guy each episode and lets her have sex in the house with her boyfriend. Michelle even made a comment about how her mom has never been a parent..

    i love us skins! The only reason people arnt watching it is because they had negative preconceived notions before it even aired. No one gave it a chance.

    I really hope this show doesn't get cancelled. There aren't any REAL teen shows anymore with real world situations and it's sad! I loveee this show!! UK Version kicks ass too! I think it's sorta neat that the US version's episodes are similar to the UK's. It was the same with "The Office" at first and everyone loves it now! wth?



  13. 13

    i only liked the episode where michelle dumped tony. it was entertaining, and well thought out. the others were pure shit.



  14. 14

    I LUV SKINS!!!

    when they chose to recast maxxie as a girl…i knew the show was doomed

    let us hope that the inbetweeners doesnt meet the same fate as us skins
