NBC has replaced the canceled Tony Robbins series “Breakthrough” with a mix of original and repeat episodes of gamer “Minute to Win It.”
Peacock opted to yank “Breakthrough with Tony Robbins” after Tuesday night’s episode averaged a low 0.8 rating and 3 share among adults 18-49, and attracted just 2.8 million viewers.
Just two episodes of “Breakthrough” had aired.
Here’s Brian Lowry’s review of the show; he actually didn’t mind it.
NBC originally ordered eight episodes of the show way back in February 2009 — under the previous regime of Ben Silverman. It was the first major piece of development ordered by NBC reality topper Paul Telegdy.
Series features the self-help guru Robbins as he takes participants and helps them face personal challenges; the pilot, for example, focused on someone who was a lifelong stutterer — and who, by the end of the episode, was speaking in front of a public audience.
