Demi Lovato's Sonny With A Chance Gets Name Change

| Filed under: TV NewsDisneyDemi Lovato

Poor Demi Lovato.

Looks like the chances of her coming back to her Disney show Sonny With A Chance are slim.

Disney has changed the show's titled to So Random for its third season, which will focus on the show within a show.

In the vid (above), her co-star Brandon Mychal Smith says:

"With a show like ours, and any great show that I’ve seen in the past, like The Wire or Seinfeld, each season you focus on a different concept, a different theory, or maybe a different character’s background. Season one we established who we were — you saw some mini sketches, you saw who the character were and how they mingled and intertwined. Season two you weref able to see more of the relationship between Sonny and Chad and how they got into it and how we didn’t like it, and you saw some of Mackenzie Falls and that aspect. And now this season you’ll be able to see So Random, see why we are where we are today in regards to being the teen idols that we are. You’ll be able to see how we bring the funny every week."

So what does this mean for Demi's character?

Will U watch the show now that it has a new name??

    So basically disney is taking the suicide route with this show. I'll tell you right now the show is shot without demo. She pretty much is the show. If this is an indication if where.disney is headed, then be prepared to lose tons of viewers.



  2. 2

    Without Demi the show has lost his interest. I won't watch it anymore unless demi comes back to the show. I guess it's the end of the show. it won't last long it will be canceled after season 3 for sure. Because Demi IS the show like ThePerezHater said.

    wow… I don't think I'll watch it if Demi isn't up there. I watch it FOR her. good job fucking up Disney



  4. 4

  5. 5

    BRe: angelinthemorning – well then that puts.you.in the.minority. the majority pretty much thinks that this.is a.folly move. Even though the.disney suits claim that lovato will be back and she.hasn't been dropped, we've been lied to before. Way to duck up your own series asshats.

    I guess disney decided to take the chuck levine route and notches up their show. Way to screw over your cast mates disney. Chaim levine is that you?

    This change has less to do with Demi, as it does with the way Disney does business.
    Disney basically has to change the premise of a show and the name of the show, in order to avoid a 4th Season pay increase for all of their actors and actresses involved. They did it with Suite Life of Zach and Cody. Now it's Suite Life on Deck. In doing so, they renegotiate their contracts to basically start over again for another 3 seasons. Certain shows that are HUGELY marketable, like Hannah Montana or Wizards of Waverly Place make so much money on endorsements and merchandising, that it's not that easy to make the change. It sounds like this seemed like the best time to make the name change, instead of waiting another season. Especially with all the Demi drama.

    Re: JimmyBones110 – If this is the case then Disney needs better team management because people will always associate the title of this show with Demi's character. So basically Disney is willing to gamble with an entire cast and crew's jobs just so they can make a few bucks for them selves? That is what we call bad PR. People will always see this show as Sonny With A Chance. Just like they saw the show "suite life of zach and cody" as such. Not "Suite life on deck" and from what I hear, the latter has sucked as of recent.

    This is what we call botching your show.

    Demi isnt on the show or on disney for that matter then whats the point in watching :/
    Hannah montana's ended and selena gomez is a fame grabber :/
    when jo bros get famous-she dates nick
    when twilight becomes a hit-she dates taylor launter
    when her shows get more popular- david henrie
    now- justin bieber.
    ditched demi for taylor when demi needed her most.

    omg :(

    Re: Shannon Katy – Not only that, they're losing wizzards this season as well. Charlie Sheen is right, these idiotic execs are letting their egos get them on the battlefield.

    this show is completely stupid and pointless without Demi.
    No ones gonna watch anymore and it's retarded to try to continue it without her.
    Disney's really gonna go downhill once Demi's gone.
    They have no big and popular people on disney anymore…sucks for them.

    Re: Shannon Katy – Selena isn't a "fame grabber". When she was dating them, she never even confirmed it and she tried to keep the relationships a secret but the papparazzi were able to find them on their dates. And you don't know what the whole friend situation with Demi was like, maybe Demi did something wrong that changed their friendship.

    I have actually seen a taping of the new show SO RANDOM, and while I would have LOVED to see Demi there… the show was so different than SONNY that I didn't focus on her absence. It was really funny- kinda like a SNL for kids with a musical guest (Cody Simpson was there the night I went) and there is a cool new set. It was really a fun show to see a taping.

    Re: goodtime – Anyone recalling Nickelodeon's hit show All That? Anyone?

    I have to say, I'm disappointed that Demi isn't returning as quickly as we all hoped, but I'm happy to see that she is committed to her recovery and isn't just rushing through it to get back to work. It takes a huge amount of control to say "This is what I need to do, even though I'd much rather be here", coming from someone who is in the performance industry, I've had to take an unwanted absence due to health reasons, but I quickly learned the more I focused on getting well, the greater my chances of returning were.

    I'm also very interested to see how he next album turns out when she finally begins recording again. I'm sure it'll be very personal and probably much different from her other two, which might also be a reason Disney is sort of cutting ties with her. They have a persona to hold up to about being all happy and wonderful and nothing bad ever happens, and Demi I'm sure isn't going to put out an album about butterflies and rainbows and happy walks on the beach.

    I'm on Team Demi. Always have been. Nolan would agree.

    I wish we never ear talk about Demi after that

    Re: goodtime – really? I heard differently. The taping that my friend went to said that most of the talk was "When was Demi coming back" or "What the hell is this goose paste" or better yet "What makes them think they can do a show without demi" being part of a live taping is one thing. But your ratings is another.

    And for the most part, it is agreed that this show will bomb and that people won't tune in due to the fact that their MAIN ACTRESS is now MIA from the show.

    I guess Chuck Lorrie is now running things at So Random. How's fucking up going over there Chaim?

    Re: Myra Ahmed – So the paparazzi just "found" her with Nick when the JoBros were at their peak and when Nick's solo album came out? The paparazzi just "found"her with Taylor when Twilight was making millions and Taylor firat made his huge debut into fame? And the paparazzi just "found" her with Beiber when his film was just about to hit theaters and he was the current 'it' boy?

    Trust me, the paparazzi have their hangouts.



  20. 20

    And the celebrities know the hangouts well. Selena Gomez and her publicists know the fame game and play it damn good. You can not honestly sit there and say they just 'found' her, because that is complete bullshit and just what they want you to believe. 

    Any who, I think the show is nothing without Demi but people will tune in just out of curiosity to see how they go on without here. That's my opinion, I might even so it myself.
