The show pulls in just 700,000 viewers per week

Executives at the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) have decided not to renew Lindsay Lohan’s docu-series, Lindsay, due to poor ratings, according to reports.

The show pulls in just 700,000 viewers per week, which is reportedly just a third of the number the network had hoped for. OWN is also apparently disappointed with Lindsay's unwillingness to promote it.

Lindsay follows the star as she relocates from Los Angeles to New York post-rehab and tries to rebuild her career. Oprah had wanted the series to be a comeback for Lindsay, but the actress’ tardiness and reluctance to shoot her real private life made it difficult for producers to get any decent footage of her.

Cameras were not allowed to follow Lindsay as she partied, and would frequently wait hours for her to get out of bed on shoot days. Last week's episode featured Lindsay showing up hours late for an Elle Indonesia photo-shoot, forcing the magazine to add another day to the shoot.

In a recent episode, Lindsay revealed she has had alcohol since leaving rehab and that she is still struggling with her sobriety.

We're sad it won't be renewed, although watching Lindsay repeatedly sabotage her own life is actually becoming kind of draining.
