NBC yanks ‘School Pride’ after one episode

Schoolpride
Sorry, schools, you’re on your own.

After a dismal launch last Friday — the show averaged just a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 — Peacock execs had no choice but to already pull the plug on “School Pride.”

The show, from executive producers Cheryl Hines (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and Denise Cramsey (“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and “True Beauty”), centered on students, teachers and parents as they worked with a group of community organizers and designers to makeover their schools.

Thankfully, the first season’s makeovers were already shot — so schools including Enterprise Middle School in Compton, Hollenbeck Middle School in Los Angeles and Los Angeles Center for Enrichment Studies already received their makeovers.

Horizon Alternative TV was behind “School Pride.”
