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.
