TBS doesn't want any part of CeeLo Green's The Good Life. The Turner-owned cable network has canceled the unscripted series after one season, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The unscripted series bowed in June and has already completed its six-episode freshman run. The reality show featured Green as he juggled his schedule of producing, recording and performing.
The series averaged 677,000 viewers when factoring in seven days of delayed viewing, with 403,000 among adults 18-49. TBS' decision to cancel The Good Life comes as the former The Voice coach is mired in controversy following tweets over the weekend about the nature of rape. The musician/TV personality has since deleted the tweets in which he implied that women can only be raped if they are conscious. He also compared rape to a home invasion. "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! So WITH implies consent," Green wrote. "People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!" he added.
Green pleaded no contest in August to a felony count of furnishing ecstasy to a woman. He faced sexual assault charges in 2012. TBS' decision comes after women's rights group UltraViolet petitioned the network to cancel The Good Life. Sources tell THR that the network's decision to cancel the series was based only on its ratings performance.
