You know the saying for the haters, “Don’t Watch Me, Watch T.V.”, well it seems like that’s what the haters were doing for VH1’s “Sorority Sisters”. The only problem is that the haters are what is keeping the show on TV.
According to the Washington Post, a petition that was created to take the sisters down has more than 67,000 signatures but too bad that doesn’t beat the 1.3 million people who tuned in to watch it!!
“In an emailed statement, VH1 said that the premiere was seen by 1.3 million people and it was the number one non-sports cable program in that time period among women ages 18 to 49.”
Well if the signatures ain’t get the sistas out you got to hit them where it hurts, the pockets! Companies like Carmex, Crayola, JBL Audio, Honda, and Hallmark Cards all pulled their ads from the show, hopefully trying to cut funding.
