VH1 Greenlights New Reality Shows Including 'White Girls of Rap,' 'This is HOT 97,' and an Untitled K. Michelle Project

VH1 has announced several new shows coming to its programming lineup throughout the summer and fall, in the midst of a 33% boost in viewership of adults 18-49. 

In the absence of Single Ladies, the network will have plenty of programming for urban audiences and women, as it adds new reality series including This Is HOT 97, which gives viewers a comedic look inside this iconic radio brand; White Girls Of Rap featuring female rappers striving for success, from Ryan Seacrest ProductionsSwab Stories, chronicling how lost family members re-connect thanks to DNA testing; Walk Of Shame Shuttle, which follows a young entrepreneur’s service for college students who overindulged the previous night; and an untitled series following the singing career of Love and Hip Hop cast member K. Michelle.  

The new series will join a slate that already includes scripted dance team drama  Hit The Floor with Kimberly Elise, and Drumline movie sequel Drumline: A New Beat, produced by Nick Cannon with Fox Television Studios

VH1 is currently the #1 network with women 18-49 and women 18-34 on Monday nights to date, while its Thursday night demo ratings are up more than 200%, which the network credits to reality series Couples Therapy and Mob Wives.

You can't get any trashier than VH1! Why would our ladies waste time consuming this garbage?

The trash renaissance on VH-1 continues unabated.


I'm not here for ANY of the aforementioned.


No. No. No.

We don't need more of this trash on television. We're not interested in listening to white women rap. Really. We just don't want it!

We don't want to see Hot 97's DJs on TV. We can barely stand to hear them on the radio.

And I think we've all had just about enough of K. Michelle. Unless she's going to behave badly, she's not even remotely entertaining.


Unless one lives in New York, I don't see why anyone would care about "This is Hot 97."
Hell, I live here and I don't care. …And as for "White Girls of Rap," could that be any more offensive? Why don't they just call it "White People Who've Raped Rap and all other cultural artifacts from Blacks Who've Invented Everything that Makes Popular Culture Cool and Worthwhile."
