The Saturdays' US TV show has been cancelled in America, as the girls just didn't provide enough drama.

Chasing The Saturdays premiered in January on E!, and showed the girl group's journey as they tried to break America and find fame overseas. However, the show is set to be cancelled as the band genuinely liked each other and rarely argued.

A source told The Sun, "It got killed in the ratings. U.S. fans like drama and conflict but The Saturdays actually liked each other."

The show only pulled in 100,000 viewers and executives made the decision to drop it. However, a spokesperson for the band said, "Chasing The Saturdays was originally only commissioned for one season.

"The show has since been picked up by 46 territories around the world. The head of E! is coming into the UK next week to discuss a Christmas special."

Boyband The Wanted will be hoping that they don't come to the same fate, as their TV show The Wanted Life, is set to debut next month - also on E!.

However, their show could be more interesting as an extended preview of the TV series has already promised drunken fights, showbiz parties and make-outs in night clubs.


The Saturdays weren't interesting enough for an American audience

Speaking about the show to Capital FM previously, Max George described it as "a fly-on-the-wall documentary based on us, and we're going to be living in a big mansion in the Hollywood hills, doing whatever we want."

Jay McGuiness added, "Part of the attraction for Ryan [Seacrest] was that the British invasion thing happened in a big way, and then the boy band thing became something else and he just invited us to do the show. So we just rocked and rolled."
