The rent maybe be slightly higher in San Francisco, but their real estate scene’s got nothing on NYC when it comes to drama. While “Million Dollar Listing New York” just premiered its fifth season, the San Francisco edition of the show has already been axed after just one season.
SFGate reports that the show struggled primarily with its cast of brokers. Cast members Justin Fichelson and Andrew Greenwell claim that the show’s producers spent four months seeking out a replacement for Roh Habibi, but could never come up with one.
Habibi was the one who actually broke the news that the show would not return for a second season through a series of tweets, which he has since deleted.
Fichelson told SFGate that the San Francisco’s greater sense of privacy also made it difficult to get clients willing to go on TV.
“This is not New York or Los Angeles,” Fichelson said. “Los Angeles has a plethora of people involved in the entertainment industry looking to be on TV in the first place.” [SFGate] – Christopher Cameron
