If you want to watch Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s reality series, “Q’Viva: The Chosen” on FOX, you’re going to have to stay up pretty late on Saturday evenings. The global singing competition, which has not been performing well on the FOX network, is being moved from primetime on Saturday nights to late night, as reported by Deadline.com.
Although the show originally aired on the Spanish-language network Univision, FOX picked up the American rights to Q’Viva: The Chosen in mid-February, hoping to benefit from a double-dose of Lopez, who is also a judge on the network’s hit show, American Idol.
“Q’Viva: The Chosen,” which follows Lopez and her former husband Marc Anthony as they trot around the globe looking for the best Latin talent, had its two-hour FOX premiere on Saturday March 3rd and was slow to perform right out of the gate, with a .8 rating among adults 18-49 in the 8-10 PM Saturday slot. Since then, the show has dropped even lower in the ratings to a .5 rating, according to Deadline.com.
FOX will replace the remaining two-hour episodes of “Q’Viva” at 8 p.m., with “Cops,” which had been performing slightly better in the time period. The network is also trimming the show from two hours to 90-minutes from 11PM-12:30 a.m.
Aside from “Q’Viva,” Lopez has been busy with a slew of projects. The Puerto Rican superstar is currently judging the 11th season of American Idol and she’ll unveil the video for her next single, a track titled “Dance Again,” on the hit singing competition on April 5th. On Monday, it was also announced that Lopez will be performing at the Pop Music Festival in São Paulo on June 23rd and in Rio de Janeiro on June 27th.
