Series info and concept
The brand new Oxygen documentary series Quit Your Day Job has premiered on March 30, 2016. It`s produced by Original Productions, a FremantleMedia Company. Jeff Conroy, Jeff Bumgarner, Philip D. Segal and Kevin Williams serve as executive producers. The freshman season is set to contain eight episodes.
The show offers aspiring young entrepreneurs first-hand experience and mentoring from the resident business experts. They are: technical mogul Randi Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media- Ido Leffler who co-founded a natural cosmetics line, and runs a line of school supplies- CEO of LMB Group Lauren Maillian, who has launched the first winery in Virginia that is owned and operated by African Americans- and Sarah Prevette, who has founded several successful projects, such as Sprouter, Betakit and BrandProject. The aspiring business professionals have a life-changing opportunity to pitch their ideas to the angel financiers, and receive practical advice and an honest appraisal of their projects` potential. Marie Claire`s executive editor Lea Goldman also participates in advising the future business stars in every episode.
Ratings and renewal prospects
The series premiered to 169,000 viewers and a 0.1 rating in the 18-49 demo, dropping to 55,000 by the second episode, viewership numbers that are less than impressive. The reasons behind such a lack of popularity aren`t quite clear, perhaps the tough love shown by the investors in the trailer portrays part of the problem, with many pitchers driven to tears by the mentors. However, usually the more drama there is in a reality series, the better its ratings, so that shouldn`t have been the problem. Things may change as the series progresses, but it might be difficult for Quit Your Job to resurface ratings-wise. Stay tuned for relevant announcements.
