MTV's Skins Will Not Be Canceled Despite Loss In Advertisers

Posted on Thu Jan 27, 2011 07:55 AM PDT


The new series Skins has ruffled feathers with both viewers and advertisers, but despite the controversy over its racy content, the network is keeping the show on the air.

MTV has released the following statement:

    "Skins has earned the loyalty of fans across the globe for its thoughtful and honest portrayal of teen life today. An internationally acclaimed scripted drama, the show has been honored with a long list of prestigious awards. MTV stands by the US adaptation of Skins and the vision of its creator Bryan Elsley.”

The following advertisers have already pulled out: Foot Locker, L'Oreal, Shick, Subway, Wrigley, Taco Bell, General Motors and H&R Block.

Skins could reportedly end up costing MTV close to $2 million per episode without big-time sponsors. The premiere episode drew in 3.3 million viewers, while the second episode saw the numbers drop down to 1.6 million.

Do you think the series will last for another season?
