VH1’s The Pick Up Artist ratings surge, expect another season

I heard it from a source a week and a half ago that the ratings for the show were improving but the only stats I saw up until yesterday were for the premiere episode which were not very good.

Mystery VH1 show “The Pick Up Artist”

That changed yesterday when I saw a Cable360 article from September 7th that reported:

“The Pick-Up Artist averaged 1.8 million total viewers and a 1.3 rating in viewers 18-49, a series best.”

That’s almost three times the premiere episode’s ratings of 673,000.

I then got wind of a Variety article from September 11th that reports: …continue reading “VH1’s The Pick Up Artist ratings surge, expect another season” »

Will there be a VH1 “The Pick Up Artist” season 2?

Here’s what I know from my insiders regarding the possibility of a season 2 of “The Pick Up Artist“:

  • The ratings did pick up after the premiere episode making VH1 consider a second season
  • There is nothing definite known one way or the other from the Venusian Arts side as of last week
  • A formal announcement if it gets renewed would probably be announced right after the finale of season 1

It sounds like VH1 is aware that the show got little initial push and premiered during a bad time of the year and is taking those factors into consideration as far as renewing it. That is a good thing.

I think the success of the season finale will be what ultimately determines if it gets renewed or not. Keep in mind that VH1 renewed “Scott Baio is 45…and single” for a second season earlier this summer if that puts it into a better perspective for you (no offense Chachi).

Casting for Season 2 of “Keys to the VIP”

If you are not familiar with the show “Keys to the VIP”, it is a reality show filmed in Toronto shown on TCN in Canada and Fuse TV in the US. It involves two pick up artists battling each other to be the most successful at opening women in a club in different situations. I find it to be fairly entertaining.

They are now casting for the second season.

Here are their stipulations:

  • must be 19-25
  • NON-Union
  • handsome
  • suave
  • extremely confident
  • believe they are adept at getting the girl

I think the age and “handsome” restrictions are complete fucking bullshit but I guess no one wants to watch some fat balding 35 year-old compete even if he can blow out some cocky ripped 21 year-old. It doesn’t make for “good TV” I guess.

I would like to see someone who was not a natural, learned seduction, and fits their stipulations blow out some blow hard.

VH1 “The Pick Up Artist” Ratings and Reviews Update

Previously I was concerned about The Pick Up Artist ratings, but things are looking better based on Thundercat’s recent post.   Apparently there is already talks of another season and/or a spin-off.

I personally am having a problem getting into the show.   90% of the screen time is devoted to the contestants and I find them all quite annoying.  Mystery is a very captivating speaker and is truly a leader in the field of seduction if not the best but he is watered down in this show.  Matador and J Dog seem like they would be interesting if they were allowed to speak.  Instead we get an hour of Pradeep whining like a bitch and Kosmo acting like a fucking spazz.

Each episode Mystery introduces a new pick up concept that I am already familiar with.  You get random bits and pieces of the students learning the technique but you get more of the students talking to the camera about how powerful and amazing the technique is.  No shit.
