VH1 Dumps “Sorority Sisters”
Fans of VH1’s “Sorority Sisters” will officially be SOL after Friday when the network releases its final episodes and finale in a single day.
The move is reportedly the first step towards a cancellation.
VH1 has finally said no mas to its detractors: the remaining three episodes of Atlanta-based “Sorority Sisters” are being burned off three in a row this Friday night.
How badly does VH1 want to put this show into the grave? The final episode will start at the odd time of 11:10 p.m. and end just past midnight. Plus, it’s not even being repeated later that night for West Coast consumption. And Friday tends to be a relatively low TV consumption night.
This doesn’t mean the show has been officially cancelled. VH1 rarely makes such announcements when a show is killed anyway, but no network with any intention of bringing a show back would make a move like this. It’s not a stretch to say it’s over for “Sorority Sisters.”
“Sorority Sisters” has been attacked for denigrating the history of African-American sororities by tying these well-regarded Greek names to the silly stereotypical drama that is part and parcel of many of VH1’s reality shows. The formula is now well worn: cattiness, jealousy, name-calling with the occasional fist thrown for good measure.
Two members of Alpha Kappa Alpha were suspended last week for more than two years for participating on the show.
Congrats to the Greeks; all that boycotting and backlash really did make a difference!
And a BIG sayonara to those (attention sloring) ladies!
What do YOU think about VH1 quietly getting rid of “Sorority Sisters”????
