What Would Ryan Lochte Do Not Renewed For Season 2

Breaking the news that I think most of us presumed by now, E! has decided not to renew Ryan Lochte’s tv show “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” according to several news outlets, including the Hollywood Reporter. E! did say, however, that they were interested in working with Lochte in the future on other projects.

The show began with decent numbers at the premier, but never gained any momentum to average 444,000 viewers.

The show revolved around Lochte, his group of close friends that he called the “Lochterage,” and the dry-side of his celebrity. There were a few scenes of him swimming, including some shots at the Orlando Grand Prix and Lochte informing his viewers that “if you’re going to be a man at night you have to be a man in the morning.”

Lochte’s planned to branch out a bit in the coming year from his long-time training ground in Gainesville. It seems that no firm plans have been set (he’s made a cryptic Tweet on the topic of perhaps not going to Australia as he’d originally announced), but Gregg Troy will continue to be his head coach and overall mastermind of Lochte’s training.

Thank goodness. As a swimming geek i felt i needed to watch it to keep up with that part of swimming. Now i don’t have to worry about it.

I’m not really surprised by this. The show was entertaining, but got really dull after maybe the third of fourth episode. Ryan’s biggest problem was that he made himself look like completely dumb. Granted, the man has a college education, but come on. It was horrible at times watch him look directly into the camera. I would like to see one about Nathan Adrian and Anthony Ervin. That might be interesting.

I totally agree with you, it would be interesting to see Nathan A. and Anthony E. even Natalie C., but these guys something that makes more is admired and keep a low profile… Moreover INGA also agree with DENNIS BATEMAN. When you say that there is nothing more exciting than watching the swimming competitions, really should give more support and coverage to the different skills that develop during the year and learn more about the swimmers in the real environment.

I think the best part of this is that he gets to really focus on his swimming again, he ended up doing quite well this year considering how inconsistent his training between the show and it being a post Olympic year. I’m excited to see what can happen as he begins to specialize a little more and gets more consistent with his training.

Not Being harsh.. but you looke like you are talking of a 20 year old swimmer that is getting the grip right now.. and that is not the situation.. he needs to specialize not to get better.. but to keep going.. 200 free is over for him.. 100 fly is a tough one.. but if he drops 200 free he can do that.. 200 IM and 200 back are his best chances.. taking 400 IM back might seem tempting but would backfire probably..
