That’s a number way below what most reality skeins would open to on the cabler, but the network doesn’t seem to be all that concerned. According to A&E, “Teach,” which stars Danza as an English teacher at Northeast High School in Philadelphia, is more about shining a light on the country’s education system and need for quality teachers in urban schools.
A&E, which had never before debuted an original series on a Friday, has six more episodes to air and it’s doubtful they’ll be another season. The network could do something similar with another celebrity, but as it’s not much of a moneymaking proposition, chances are slim.
Danza, who is best known to the parents of Northeast High School students for his roles in “Taxi” and “Who’s’ the Boss,” had said he had always wanted to go into teaching before his career began as a boxer and actor.
