Ryan Lochte may be a successful swimmer but his debut on the television screen was not as successful as expected. In fact, the rating of ‘What Would Ryan Lochte Do?’, a reality show about Lochte, was pretty low. It drew only 15,500 watchers in the TV market in Orlando. It seems that people like him swimming but dislike to see him be Ryan Lochte.
The show was premiered on Sunday night on ‘E!’. The authority thought Lochte to have a solid fan base in Central Florida as the swimmer is from Port Orange. However, their perception proved to be wrong as Lochte’s show fared worse than another ‘E!’ series entitled ‘Married to Jonas’, which had 16,900 viewers on its premiere episode.
In fact, the realty show is so awful that it has to be taken as a public-relations howler for the famous swimmer. However, the Olympic swimmer’s good looks charmed a lot of women. Sadly, good looks cannot ensure good rating.
