I've posted about it while others tried to explain what the problems were with this show along with GLAAD and a long list of trans community bloggers and advocates.
The trans community expressed its opinions in social media how and why the show was disrespectful to our lives, our lived experiences and our struggles.
We appealed to ABC and the producers of the show to either not air it or make changes more in line with the reality of a transperson's lived experiences up to and including using trans actors. Instead ABC and the producers of the show arrogantly rejected that advice and ran it as is without the changes we implored them to make.
The verdict is in about the decision to air the universally panned Work It. According to Adweek it's getting worse numbers than the show it replaced, Man Up!
Work It debuted Tuesday night with a 2.0 in the 18-49 demographic they were shooting for, which is worse than the 2.4 that Man Up! had in the same time slot. It's lead in show, Tim Allen's Last Man Standing averaged a 2.4 Nielsen overnight rating in its first broadcast episode since December 13.
Translation: Work It lost 17 percent of its lead in audience.
