2 Months, 2 Million cancelled for second season

2 Months, 2 Million cancelled for second season

Thursday, 4 March 2010

Unfortunately for TV poker fans, the popular 2 Months, 2 Million show that pitted four online players against the poker world in a bid to make $2,000,000 in eight weeks will not be renewed for a second season.

Jason “pr1nnyraid” Rosenkrantz recently learned of this decision and told PokerListings that the cast – including Dani “ansky” Stern, Emil “whitelime” Patel and Brian Roberts – are now weighing up alternative options: “We're exploring our options. I learned a lot doing ‘2 Months, $2 Million,’ not the least of which was what people really liked about it and what didn't work. Hopefully, we’ll get a chance to let that experience work for us.”

In the first season, the team struggled to reach the target. At one point, in week five, they were only up $35,000 before resetting the goal to $1,000,000 and managing a total profit of over $650,000 a few weeks later.

Whether or not this was a factor in G4’s decision to drop the show is unknown. Personally, we enjoyed the programme, though it is easy to see why ratings may have been poor. Online poker is not the form of this game that a TV audience wants to watch, despite us knowing how awesome it is.

Better luck next time, boys.
