TLC cancelled Little People, Big World; Decision to end the show was TLC's, not the Roloff Family



As most people are aware of by now, Matt Roloff announced on August 26th, 2010 that Season 6 would be the final season of Little People, Big World. Matt has made subsequent Facebook comments declaring his excitement in announcing the news and hinting that there is a spin off show lined up.

http://spiritswander.blogspot.com/2010/08/matt-roloff-announces-that-this-is.html

There have already been differing reports about whose decision it was to end the show.

E online states TLC decided to "pull the plug" on the show.

http://ca.eonline.com/uberblog/b197474_little_people_big_world_stop_turning_on.html

Other sites such as TV Squad are going by Matt's own comments on his Facebook Fan Page noting that Matt seems to indicate it was the Roloffs decision, although he provided no reason:

http://www.tvsquad.com/2010/08/27/little-people-big-world-to-end-after-6-seasons/

"According to statements made by Matt on his and the 'Little People, Big World' Facebook pages, the decision to end the show may have come from him and not TLC, though Roloff gave no reason for ending the show."

It is worth mentioning that as recently as July, Matt said they planned to do the show for "at least 2 more years" (at the 3:40 mark in this interview with the Portland TV station KOIN).

http://spiritswander.blogspot.com/2010/07/matt-roloff-interview-with-portland.html

The news on August 26th that this is the last season suggests this is a change from the what the Roloffs were expecting ("at least 2 more years" -- Matt Roloff, July 2010).

So that is what Matt had to say in his annoucement about Season 6 being the final season for LPBW.

However, we are being told a very different version of what happened by people within the industry connected to the show. This is what we are told that everyone within the industry -- there are obviously hundreds of people connected and working for the show, and this is what we are told they all know to be what really happened as it relates to the show coming to an end:


TLC cancelled the show Little People, Big World; the decision to pull the plug and not continue beyond the current Season 6 was entirely and totally the decision of TLC and not the Roloffs. Out of respect to the Roloffs for their longevity -- over 5 years and 200 episodes -- TLC extended the courtesy of allowing Matt Roloff to break the news and spin it how he pleased. It is uncommon for a television network to allow the star of the show release news such as this, usually they just send a basic press release, but TLC was being gracious and extending respect to the Roloffs as appreciation for their many years by allowing Matt to phrase it how he wanted and to break the news.

There is also no spin off show in the plans at the moment, we are told. Matt has been hinting about a spin off show and people have speculated for many years that twins Jeremy and Zach Roloff might get a spin off show centering around them living on their own with some of their close friends. We are told that is incorrect. There are no plans for that. The spin-off talk is still what it has been for several years. Nothing more than the producer that is closest to the Roloffs as a friend, kicking around the idea of 'Hey wouldn't it be great to do a show about Jeremy, Zach and their friends?' type of thing. However, that's as far as it goes -- we are being told. It takes a lot more for a show to become a reality than a producer having an idea. As for Matt immediately hinting and teasing about spin off shows on his Facebook Fan page? We are told that it is Matt Roloffs M.O. to throw ideas out there in the hopes that someone will take them up on it.



Contrary to the talk for many years, there is no spin-off show set up centering around Jeremy and Zach Roloff and some of their close friends often seen on the show.

That is what we are told really happened and this is what people connected to the show know how it played out. Obviously there are hundreds and hundreds of people employed and connected to show and this is common knowledge to people within the industry and with the show.

So the bare bones/straight to the point announcement could have simply been - TLC decided to cancel the show/not continue beyond Season 6. There is no spin off show. End of announcement.

We are told everything about the announcement released by Matt and Matt's subsequent comments are all Matt "spin". Again, TLC extended the courtesy of allowing the Roloffs to release the news how the Roloffs wanted.

The fact is ratings have been falling for Little People, Big World. It once consistently raked in ratings in the 2's. Season 5 Part A scored a lot of ratings in the range of 1.7, 1.8. When an episode in Season 5A had a rating of 1.4, we mentioned that was well below what is usual and expected for LPBW. At the time, through his website, Matt insisted ratings were great and stated that they were in good shape as long as it's over 1 million (1.0). However, Part B of Season 5 then continued to see ratings dip even further.

http://spiritswander.blogspot.com/2010/06/little-people-big-world-finale-roloff.html

There was an episode that failed to attract over the 1.0 mark, and other episodes consistenly hovered around 1.1's and 1.2's. The finale featuring the cliffhanger ending of "Matt's collapse" did generate the highest rating of Season 5B at a 2.085 -- however TLC did catch some flack for what some people saw as a cheap trick and publicity stunt by playing on people's emotions by making some trusting viewers think that Matt had some serious health crisis -- when Matt has since stated it was only a dizzy spell caused by vertigo and although they ended the season with that, it was actually filmed well before almost everything else viewers saw during Season 5B:

http://spiritswander.blogspot.com/2010/06/discovery-catches-some-flack-for-death.html

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/06/16/AR2010061605026.html

http://spiritswander.blogspot.com/2010/06/real-timeline-of-matt-roloffs-collapse.html

The fact is the ratings had dropped for LPBW standards. It was still okay for a cable show and still beats some other TLC shows most weeks. However, it should be taken into account that it's more expensive to produce than some of the other and newer shows that also hover around the 1.0 mark in ratings. Obviously after having such a long and impressive run, the Roloffs salary is understandably higher than stars of some newer shows. You could look at it using a general sporting analogy. If a baseball player hits 50 home runs, the team pays the player $20 million. If in the next season, that player hits 20 home runs, is the team going to be happy? No. Is 20 Home Runs still the same or better than some other players? Yes. However, they aren't going to be happy because of what it is costing them, they are paying the player to hit 50 home runs. If that player is going to hit 20 home runs now, they might as well cut that player and get someone cheaper and only spend what is usual for a 20 home run player. It's the same concept with LPBW dropping down around the 1.0 and 1.1 mark in the ratings.

Our sources also tell us that TLC had to dramatically slash the Roloffs travel budget for Season 6.

Friends of the Roloffs have already begun making public comments to Matt congratulating the Roloffs on "your decision". A person claiming to be a friend of the Roloffs is also adamantly posting that it was the Roloffs decision along with these details:

http://spiritswander.blogspot.com/2010/08/matt-roloff-announces-that-this-is.html?showComment=1282962328032#c7929053838869573962

Our sources connected to TLC/producers/industry insiders read those comments on our site and simply say it is not true -- it is "spin" and "BS".

Amy Roloff made a statement to Entertainment Tonight. Her words were more to the point and lacked the same "spin" as Matt's subsequent comments. Amy states it was a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" and "As this chapter in my life comes to a close..."


http://www.etonline.com/news/2010/08/90498/

"I truly feel blessed for all these wonderful years," she added. "'Little People, Big World' has been a wonderful once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that has enriched my life, Matt's life and our kid's lives. As this chapter in my life comes to a close, I look forward to the many opportunities and new experiences that are yet to come and will still diligently continue my efforts with my charity the Amy Roloff Charity Foundation."


Obviously when there are two versions of what happened, individuals are going to believe what they want. People have heard and are reading Matt's version and we feel we owe it to people to allow them a chance to hear what we are told -- that people connected to the show/TLC/Production company are saying it was TLC's decision to pull the plug and there is no spin off show as we speak -- and Matt's whole tone of comments on his Facebook Fan Page comments regarding the end of the show is "spin".

Our site has always been about attempting to pass along the real story -- the truth as we know it; whatever that might be -- to fans and followers of the Roloffs. And that is what we have been told is the real story.

Thanks Spirits! I'm not surprised at all.

Matt is much too proud (too big of an ego)to concede defeat.

Expressed said...

No spinoff show for Jeremy and Zach? That sucks! :(

If TLC doesn't do it, I hope another network picks up on that idea.

Melanie said...

I am sorry to hear that. I will miss the show. I've watched LPBW every Monday for the last several years.

Anonymous said...

It was about time! Good for TLC. The show jumped the shark in the third season.

Christine said...

I think the show and the Roloffs had pure intentions in the first season, but then they fell into the trap of what always happen to people on tv. The fame and money went to their heads. It all became about vacations and watching them spend money and think of ways to put more money in their own pockets. It was vastly different than the first season.

Justin said...

Thank you TLC for ending this train wreck!

Sheri said...

I don't believe it. Matt Roloff is a man of intergrity. He wouldn't lie or deceive.

Patty said...

Long over due. Classy of TLC to let the Roloffs bow out gracefully though.

Susan said...

Now (or when the episodes stop airing) it will get interesting. I think sadly the Roloffs will implode without the same level of attention and money.

Carol said...

Jeremy's Himbo-ness wasn't enough to keep the show rolling? I'm shocked! ;)

I think Matt has a disease that prevents him from telling the truth.

Brandon said...

Great story, Spirits and sources!

I didn't doubt that it wasn't the Roloffs choosing to walk away. Like you said, Matt and Amy were talking about how they were going to do the show for many more years. A couple of months later the show is done? No way was it the Roloffs decision.

TLC is making the right decision.

I don't think a spin off show would have been successful. Where is the catch? At least Little People Big World could pretend to be about dwarfism.

I would have liked to have seen that tho. They couldn't do that without people finding out that Jeremy is not the squeaky clean Christian kid LPBW spent 6 seasons making him out to be.

David said...

Good stuff, Spiritswander.

I'm not surprised in the least. Matt would never admit the show was axed, just like he couldn't admit that ratings were declining.

Rap541 said...

Not shocked.

Older show, kids not so cute anymore, ratings dipping...

And TLC let Kate Gosselin spin her show's demise so I am not surprised they gave Matt the courtesy.

Diane said...

So much for the Roloffs always saying they wanted to slip back into normal life. It sounds like they are scratching and clawing to stick around.

Expressed said...

Rap, I believe what Spirits is saying about TLC dropping the ax, but I disagree with this part of what you said.

"kids not so cute anymore..."

When you talk about things like cute and attractiveness, you can't base it on just your own opinion because cuteness and appearance is a matter of opinion.

Jeremy might not be called "cute" anymore, but he is considered "hot" by lots of people.

I think Jeremy was cuter than Jacob was at his age now, but like I just said, doesn't matter what I think, I've read enough comments, people think Jake is a very cute kid. More and more people are saying Molly is a nice looking girl.

I don't think you can say one of the reasons why TLC is ending the show is because the kids have lost the cuteness factor, because I think appearance is more in their favor now than it ever was.

Rap541 said...

Expressed, I really wish you wouldn't assume a comment about cuteness was a slam on ATTRACTIVE Jeremy is.

It's an age issue, not a looks issue. This is a family show about the trials and tribulations of a dwarf family raising four young kids. It's cute when the twins are fifteen, but when the "kids" are almost old enough to buy their own beer and have poorly grown van dykes... thats a problem for a show marketed as "great for everyone in the family". Three of the four kids look college age... the show really isn't about two parents raising four cute kids anymore, not when two of the kids are legal adults and one is almost there as well.

Whether or not Jeremy is a nice looking young man isn't really factor - the problem is that he's not in any way a child. It ruins the show premise. Not his and Zach's fault - you can't help getting older after all, but its not reasonable to suggest he's still a cute little boy to the viewing audience.

Can we have a discussion about Jeremy without needing to "OMG JEREMY IS SO HOT THATS WHY THE SHOW IS A SUCCESS"?

Because clearly *that* isn't keeping the show afloat.

David said...

Great job, SW. Thanks.

Matt would rather die than be publicly embarrassed.

Defer to the honest Roloff that has always been able to read Matt the best. Zach.

"The most important thing to my Dad is his reputation." - Zach Roloff.

Expressed said...

Rap, thanks. Gotcha. I guess I misunderstood by what you meant by the cute factor.

I just meant that even when the show started, if the Roloffs were an ugly family, I don't think they would have been given a series. Society is shallow especially for entertainment programs.

The Roloffs are a good looking family. I just meant that they still are, not as though Jake turned from a cute little boy into an ugly teenager or Jeremy from a cute teenager into a hideous 20 year old. But I got what you meant now.

Jackie said...

I'll miss the show, but I understand why TLC thought it was time to end. It hasn't been the same for a while.

Craw said...

Well then TLC are stupid.

They are going to throw away the LPBW audience totally? They gotta give Jeremy his own show with Zach. It would cut cost since it would only be the two of them, I doubt any friends would get paid much.

Jeremy could definately carry a show even with Zach for dwarf factor.

Esp. if the ditched the stupid PG stuff and showed Jeremy being cool and popular and having fun like everybody knows he is anyway.

Cindy said...

Very interesting. I can't say I'm shocked that Matt spins everything. It's nice to hear what is really going on.

Andrea said...

Of course TLC cancelled it. The Roloffs love the money too much to walk away themselves. Just look at how desperate Matt is to stay in the limelight.

FILIPA said...

OH MY GOD! I'M ALMOST CRYING! I WANT A SPIN OFF WITH JEREMY :'( NOOO

Expressed said...

Filipa, I feel your pain! :) Maybe Jeremy will decide he misses the cameras and try to pursue modeling again or something that will keep him in front of the cameras. We can hope! :)

tay said...

why wouldn't they do a spin off with the twins and the dbu?

i hope zach isn't ruining it for jer, by saying no. are you hearing that? is zach being a suck and saying no and spoiling it for jer?

Shadow said...

Hey, Tay, if Jer is soooo hot and sooooo talented, why couldn't he get his OWN show? Why would he NEED his "sucky" brother to HELP him?

Oh, yeah, because TLC has a brain...

tay said...

because they need some kinda bs angle and that would be zach being dwarf. it's the same as it is now. if the show was really about being dwarf then jeremy, molly and jacob would hardly be on it and wouldn't have episodes about them.

Rap541 said...

Still, that means Jeremy can't get a show on his own, now doesn't it?

And look, now Tay is slamming Zach for being "a suck" over a non-existant show.

Can we hold off on the "GOD ZACH IS RUINING IT FOR JEREMY LETS ALL HATE HIM" arguements until we have ANY indication that this took place?

Because really, isn't it a tad hateful to run Zach out of town for ruining Jeremy's opportunities when there's absolutely NO evidence that there was even a spinoff discussed?

What opportunity has Zach spoiled for Jeremy? Any? If there's no offers being made then Zach isn't spoiling ANYTHING and shouldn't be publically called names over it. But look at the HATE. He's done nothing wrong but he's HATED for POTENTIALLY DENYING JEREMY A NONEXISTANT OPPORTUNITY! HATE ZACH HATE ZACH, FOR THE LOVE OF JEREMY, HATE ZACH!

Thats what you sound like, Tay. Maybe you should ask Matt if Zach was "a suck" and "spoiled it for Jer"? Before you assume and pile on the Christian Hate for Zach over something that didn't actually happen?

A1 said...

Why are the ratings going down?

Judy said...

This is a downer.

On one hand, it might be good for the Roloffs, even if it wasn't their decision, that the show ended before Jacob gets into his wild teenage antics. If the show had went on for two or more years he would have been 15, almost 16. I think Jacob is going to cause a lot of problems when he's that age.

Sad to see the show go. It will be different without the Roloffs on Monday. They had a good run and did a lot of good.

Susan said...

TLC made a wise choice. Hopefully Molly and Jacob can be salvaged, although I think it's too late for Jeremy and Zach.

It's too bad the Roloffs are talking like they need the attention.

The best thing they could do is go back to living normal lives.

Chris said...

It's only bad because we will never know what REALLY happens to them.

Matt will still give updates probably...but duh, obviously Matt giving updates doesn't mean much since it's not the truth. lol.

Will Jacob get arrested? Will he top Jeremy's replace the vodka with the Sprite trick?

What will really become of Jeremy? We won't get to hear what else he's been dreaming of since he was 4 year old.

Plastic Surgeon Los Angeles said...

That sucks. I love this show and have since it came on the air. The Roloff family is amazing, despite all their hardships. Bummer big time.

Slayer Fan said...

Goodbye and good riddance to a show that should by all rights have been canceled after the fourth season.

Matt will never be able to accept that the network told him to sit on it and rotate but then again if he was ever present at a TLC board meeting he'd be whistling stranger in paradise.

BeckyM said...

I thought TLC had another dwarf show The Little Couple or somesuch? and they have selected a huge NYC multi-kid family IMO as a replacement for Kate Gosselin and brood.

The reality is that these "stars" are earning too much bucks and giving back too little in ratings. TLC is smart too cut them out and start over again. New people will naturally draw in viewers just for curiousity sake. It also lets' TLC look "new" when they really just rehash the same old same old or copy it from other networks (seems Cake Boss is already in trouble).

Personally, I would still watch this show if it actually offered something meaningful about prejudices, disabilities, etc... but it's all freebies, vacations and filler.

Matt and Amy have come across for years as ineffectual parents raising lazy young men. I hope losing the show helps Molly and Jacob start to lead more normal lives, though I suspect that Jacob (raised in front of cameras at an earlier age then the others and for longer) will need support (unfortunately Matt and Amy doesn't sound like they will provide it :(

Susan said...

Becky, that's the sad part.

Matt's spinning of this story clearly shows that he is looking for more ways to stay a celebrity and make money from it. Unfortunately I think Amy has fallen into that trap too.

They should be focusing on their younger kids by making sure they are raised properly. Unfortunately it seems like Matt and Amy are all about whatever keeps the money flowing and their faces in front of the cameras.

Julie said...

Thank you SpiritWander. It is good to know to hear the story. I have never trusted anything Matt says.

Jim Beem said...

Something fishy is going on. Why would TLC decide to pull the plug now, before it's had a chance to see what Season 6 ratings are like? Believe me, if the LPBW ratings jump back up above 2.0 million consistently, this show will be back. I don't think this is the last of LPBW...maybe TLC will scale down production or pay for less travel, but it will be back in some form. I'm keeping my hopes up!

Ashley said...

Jim, I've wondered that too. Maybe TLC thinks if people think it's the last time they'll see the Roloffs they will watch again and get better ratings.

Anonymous said...

Unfortunately, I also saw the money drive in this. The family went from being simple and well grounded to celebrityhood. That was just a BIG disappointment. It was there being true to themselves that drew me to watch the show. After that it wasn't interesting anymore. It was fake!

Anonymous said...

Im going to miss LPBW, but last season was really boring....I will watch this last season and enjoy it for what it is, a nice show about a family working thru their issues like everyone else.

Angela said...

Good decision TLC. I think it will be good for the Roloffs ego for some of the fame to go away.

It will take a while for it to wear off, but the kids will learn what it's like to be a normal person and how to work for things you get instead of being given freebies.

They might also realize that us annoying fans weren't as bad as they always trashed. When people stop caring about them and the money stops, they will long for the days when they had fans that wanted to be nice to them and were interested in them.

mythoughtis said...

I think it needed to be cancelled... as the show had strayed way too far from its premise. I watched it at first because I knew next to nothing about dwarves other than they were vertically challenged. Now I know that they can have certain medical issues that the average hieght person usually doesnt. Now I know that they are people first and deserve to be treated as such.
But, the show hooked us into caring more about the family than the dwarfism issues and news. People began fawning all over Jeremy as a nice looking man, assigning him personality and other characteristics that he didn't neccessarily have. People began comparing the normal teenage discord between Zach and Matt as more than what it was. The family moved off its axis.... Matt got a large cash inflow and went wild with his spending, his megahouse and megafarm productions, his mega vacations that he scheduled and then left. Amy saw this clearly.
In the end, the kids were harmed by all the attention and easy money.

I do not think that a reality show based on a group of people show last more than long enough to clearly portray the subject involved (such as dwarfism or multiple births, etc). The ones that change the people from season to season in terms of a contest, such as Survivor can go on as long as an audience is interested

Jocelynn said...

I agree, MT. I don't think the Roloffs were ever call it quits on their own. Good decision by TLC.

"In the end, the kids were harmed by all the attention and easy money."

Well said. I think in the beginning Amy tried to make surethat didn't happen, but eventually she got caught up in it too.

Anonymous said...

the show has really gone down hill since season 3. when the family unit started to fall apart and ppl started going their seperate ways (to different countries) it made ppl feel like this wasnt a normal family who just happen to be made up of 3 dwarfs and 3 normal size ppl.. they pushed it like they were like everybody else and in the end they werent. take the money and run matt you are a good man and businessman but the shark has been jumped and theres no looking back.

shrnjn@comcast.net said...

I will really miss watching LPBW. I love the show and the family. Can't understand the hostility and rude comments towards them. The show is about showing that they are no different than the rest of us. They have ups and downs, trials, and hardships just as we all do. And they have feelings too, which seems to be forgotten by some. I wish them all the best.

I think Jeremy will have the hardest time when the attention and money fades.

Jason said...

For people that always insisted they didn't do the show for money or attention they sure seem mighty desperate to keep their celebrity going.

The show ending was *just* announced... if this is still going on six months from now, then I'll be judgemental.

I think Jeremy Roloff and Jacob Mueller are closeted lovers.

Anonymous said...

Actually jeremy is the one that is being most courted by agents and lawyers. I'm pretty sure he's already signed a deal just waiting for the Tlc contract to expire

Brandon said...

11:10 Anon, I wouldn't be surprised. Lots of people including myself always predicted that Jeremy would turn into a "fame-whore".

In my opinion, Jeremy is the Roloff kid that was most in love with the attention. When the show ended he would be the most desperate to keep the attention coming and would have the hardest time living as a normal person again because Jeremy thrives on special treatment and attention.

Carol said...

I think I will wait to see what comes of Jeremy before we annoit him successful.

I'll refer to a line from Spirits' article.

"We are told that it is Matt Roloffs M.O. to throw ideas out there in the hopes that someone will take them up on it."

Wise advice.

I'm positive that somebody in the entertainment world is courting Jeremy. Being "courted" is not the same as something actually happening.

Jeremy is the "Himbo" on the show. He is a reasonably attractive young man that walks around shirtless and rarely says anything of substance other than regurgitating the same catch phrases over and over...

"(x) is the most amazing thing I've ever done. I've been dreaming of doing (x) ever since I was 4 years old. It's amazing." Put that on repeat for everything Jeremy has ever done on the show.

Will someone in the entertainment industry try to capitalize on Jeremy's semi teen idol status? Perhaps, but I'll wait and see what actually happens and what it is. I can't imagine it will be anything worth applauding. I say he has "semi" teen idol status because most people don't know who he is, but among LPBW watchers that is true.

Expressed said...

Anon, I can only hope and pray that Anonymous at 11:10 is right!! :)

I believe it. I've always said the big reason why LPBW was still going for this long was because of Jeremy. Everyone I know under 25 that watches LPBW watches only for Jeremy.

Timothy said...

I can't imagine what project a legitimate company would want Jeremy for?

Here is the cold hard facts. He is a reality tv player. Or now an ex reality tv star. It is very rare for reality tv stars to ever go on to anything of value.

Look at all the Survivor people that have a lot bigger audience than LPBW. Whatever happened to "Colby" that was the "hot guy" in the first or second Survivor? I don't know, but I've never heard of him again.

The only thing that reality tv stars go on to are lame reality shows that are laughed at by millions, like celebrity boxing and celebrity rehab.

Other than that, how much grease can Jeremy really sell? C'mon.

Susan said...

If I was with a company courting Jeremy, I'd be afraid of making a deal with him.

Nevermind all the other stuff, he has a horrible rapport with fans (it's non existent) and he has a history of offending just about every minority group except for LP. He would need to be babysat 24/7 to prevent a PR nightmare.

David said...

Great point, Susan.

Rap once said it best about Jeremy. The biggest indictment of Jeremy is not anything Rap or anyone else has ever said about him.

It is the fact that Matt and Amy don't trust him enough to speak for himself. All the BS and PR crap aside, that is the most telling thing of all about Jeremy. He is 20 years old and his parents still need to treat him like he is 10 years old. They don't trust him to talk for himself.

It's very revealing and quite sad actually.

Samantha said...

I don't mind Jeremy, but I can't imagine that Hollywood is beating down his door.

He is not a bad looking guy, but he is not stunning. What does he really have to offer? He is an ok looking guy that was on a reality show because he was born to dwarf parents and has a dwarf brother. So?

I hope for his own health that he's not taking stuff to help the look of his body, because it is making me wonder. He's gotten big awfully quickly. If he's trying to ink deals to stay famous, maybe he is getting desperate?

Diane said...

I sure hope Jeremy doesn't get anything. I think he's a stuck up jerk and it's about time some bad karma comes his way for how bad he has treated people over the years.

Laura said...

I doubt Jeremy has already signed some deal if the TLC contract doesn't expire until next April.

Count me in the group that doesn't understand what Jeremy would do? Didn't he already try to get into modelling and it didn't work out?

Who are we kidding? Jeremy wouldn't do anything that would take him away from spending time with Mueller.

Myndi said...

Maybe Jeremy will be on a show about pseudo-Christians? That is the first thing I think about when I think of Jeremy.

A pseudo Christian describes an individual who follows the beliefs of the Christian church but fails to apply them in his/her daily actions.

William said...

Boy, for how many years did the Roloffs insist they didn't want to be celebrities?

As soon as the show ends, they rush around trying to get another celebrity gig.

They should have only done the show for two seasons, used the money as a boost and then continued on as normal people. Instead they've fallen into the celebrity trap.

DJ said...

Right, like Jeremy could do anything without Matt or someone with the show guiding him. Jeremy can barely survive being separated from his friends since kindergarten for more than a week.

My bet is if Jeremy does anything (doubtful) Matt will be involved. He can barely cross the street without instruction from Matt, Amy or Molly making sure he does it right and doesn't get into trouble.

Doreen said...

I'll miss the show.

Mary said...

Even if it wasn't the Roloffs choice, maybe now that it's decided they are excited to move on to other things?

Z to the Zee said...

Mary, I doubt it...I doubt it very much. Listen to Spirits. Matt Rolof spin!

It is about...what else? Money.

Being totally straight with you I don't know what their 6th season contract is like but I assume it's like their contract before that.

I know that Jeremy and Zach told their friends that they didn't start getting paid until season 5 and they don't get paid until the episodes air.

TLC cancelling the show and only doing half a season, 20 eps instead of 40 eps or 80 eps is a lot of lost money for the Roloffs.

Sure they're trying to be media whores and find another way to make it up, but it's still lost money they had within their grasp.

No way are they secretly happy about being cancelled.

I think TLC needs to learn there are more things in this life than little people and families with more children than they can handle. I mean there was little people big world, tiny chocolatiers, little family, little couple (all on tlc) then there were the duggars, the Gosslins, this other family I never watched with 12 kids... now I hear they're getting another multipule show.

its all they freakin have! I'm surprised ratings for TLC haven't dropped in general.

WHAT THE TWINS WILL HAVE TO GET REAL JOBS.

I can't see poor Jeremy trying to do anything. He could not even change a class with out help. He had to go to his jr college advisor... Then they have to move out. POOR landlord.
Those boys like to live in filth.

Dana said...

Jeremy will go onto great things. I'm sure he's not worried and has an array of different paths he can choose.

Diane said...

I sincerely hope Jeremy doesn't get another deal. I honestly don't know why or what he has to offer. Not only does he have any particular skill or talent that would be deserving of fame, but he's not even a nice person. He's selfish and has no integrity.

Justin said...

William, I couldn't have said it better myself. For 4 years Matt insisted they didn't want to be celebs. The second the show is done they are running in every direction trying to milk their fame and keep on being celebs. I'd say someone was lying for 4 years. Matt and the Roloffs be dishonest? No! :)

Anonymous said...

It's my guess that Matt has collected a long list of opportunities to exploit now that their 5 year contract is ending. I bet we never see the inside of the Roloff house ever again but we see plenty of the Roloff's. They will be fine. Good for them and the way they played this out. Just wish Matt wasn't such a pompous ass.

David said...

I don't believe the stuff about them having a 5 year contract. Every year until the last Matt would play the contract negotiation game of "we might go back to normal life", That was obviously a load of you know what, but he did it every year at the same time. No need to do that if they had a 5 year contract.

"Dana said...

I think that Jeremy is probably very worried that his fame is going to disappear and he'll have to go back to just being another anonymous face in the crowd who is unrecognized by the world.

Hollywood agents are almost certainly not "beating down his door" with offers for TV shows movies or modeling work because Jeremy IS NOT AND NEVER HAS BEEN AN VERY GOOD ACTOR nor does he have any specific talent that would merit further attention from anyone else.

There is no doubt that Jeremy loves being payed attention to and hearing the empty complements that people constantly give him because he's so eogtistical.

In a lot of ways he is like a highly trained dog or circus animal, he knows how to get what he wants by performing for people and acting a certain way.

In the end the only path that will be open to him will be the path that leads to nowhere but disappointment.

I think closing out the Roloffs is the best idea. Some observations:

1. Matt is a pain in the ass blow hard, not to mention incredibly and surprisingly selfish. The way he ignores common sense in favor of satisfying himself is truly amazing...not to mention scary.

2. Amy is slowly but surely realizing this, at last.

3. The kids are incredibly spoiled, with parents who have no concept of proper discipline. How often when you were growing up were you rewarded for bad behavior? Jeremy and Zach crash a farm vehicle - so what's the punishment? - buy Jeremy a fixer upper. The kids fail to clean their room? What's the punishment - Matt breaks out $100 bills to give to all kids that finally do what they're told. Jacob? This kid is going to have a bucketful of issues when he leaves Shangri-La. Maybe not a serial killer, but anything is possible with him unless someone gets a grip on him fast.

The way the Roloffs live is so unrealistically Beaver Cleaver that it is often sickening to watch. Smothering your kids and watching every move they make is no way to do it. The only properly functioning members of that family are Amy and Molly. The twins have been so coddled and sheltered that I am surprised they know how to tie their own shoelaces. Just listen to them talk. They sound as truly clueless about the real world as they are.

When you were 19, did your folks hire a clothing designer to make your outfits? Did they hover over you like annoying gnats? Did they inviter your entire class over for a weenie roast?

HIGH TIME THAT TLC GETS A GRIP ON THEIR PROGRAMMING. For me, the program "19 Kids and Counting" is sort of frightening. I find it hard to watch a family whose mother is basically serving as a human incubator, and then trying to describe how cute that is! Does this woman have any goals besides breeding 24/7?

Reality TV is thankfully spinning its wad and we can hopefully get back to more realistic television.

mary from pa said...

I am very upset that the show is cancelled, I just really started watching it and already bought season 1 & 2 & will definetly be buying the other seasons... It is a great show, the family is to be admired for showing that even tho you might be disabled life can be lived to the fullest... I have a grandson with a disabitlity and plan to use these shows to encourage him... God Bless the Roloff's... maybe I'll visit the farm one day

Bye Bye Roloffs - Hello Reality

In reading many of these posts, I think most people just do not "get it" when it comes to how LPBG has changed. It stopped being about disabilities and the attached challenges a few seasons ago. Now it is about Matt, his stupid ideas in trying to create a hideous, second-rate Great Adventure in the middle of an Oregon cornfield, and Amy disagreeing with almost everything he does (and rightfully so).

What's coming out now is that the only person with the slightest grips on reality are Amy and Molly.

And it's not like TLC is getting any smarter by pushing the 19 KIDS AND COUNTING program, which to me is frightening at best. What woman would willingly turn herself into a human incubator? Why would anyone want 19 children?? Do they have any loftier ambitions than just being breeders? Worst of all, Kate Gosselin and her nauseating show.

Just how far DOWN is TLC going to sink?

Rap541 said...

Every year until the last Matt would play the contract negotiation game of "we might go back to normal life", That was obviously a load of you know what, but he did it every year at the same time. No need to do that if they had a 5 year contract.

Is he now saying they were signed to TLC for five years?

I haven't seen that. I do remember the yearly "we might not sign, we decide every year if its best for the family to continue the show".

I wish Matt would stick to one story.

grace said...

Ok, let me get this straight. TLC is taking off a good family show that my grandkids can watch and adding a reality show about a man with three wives??? What is wrong with this picture!!!!

dlb said...

Sorry, to see the show go off the air. Not many wholesome family shows left. The world was given a look into the lives of a real family "unit" with mother and dad present.

We all have challenges and trials in life but, they over came many.

benighted10 said...

I've been calling this show Little People, Big Paycheck since season three.

Matt spends money almost as quickly as a degenerate gambler. I saw him drop close to 100G's last night on depreciating crap(a truck and some fancy cart).

Hope fully Amy is hiding some money from this guy. He is the classic paycheck to paycheck personality.

I have always spent my money elsewhere during pumpkin season.

Hello Matt and family

Well it has been nice watching your show and you will be missed, hopefully you will find other great adventures to follow. Poke your head in tv let all of us know what your family is doing now and then

I am really getting tired of the fighting between Amy and Matt. Also of all the vacations they are taking. The show is running out of ideas and it is time to stop the show.
I think they will get a divorce and sell the farm, and go their own ways. Let's hope this is the case

Cate said...

Cate I believe that Matt has bought too many vehicles + renovated a home too large. Children leaving home don't need all that stuff. I agree with post above that Amy has invested + saved. The children must have received pay checks + hopefully they won't follow matt's money senses. Wish them the best + thank them for showing us a unique family.

Marcia said...

Why are people so nasty on this subject? If you don't like the show, or it has lost it's appeal for you, the solution is simple . . . STOP watching it. Admit it, the Roloff's afforded us of 5 years of entertainment. Most likely we watched it because we were lacking so much in our own lives. Personally, I will be sorry to see them go after been in their living rooms every week for 5 years. Marcia

Rob said...

I feel bad that TLC canceled Matt and Amy's show....maybe it's for the better. Amy has been wanting privacy it seems, and the older boys Zach and Jeremy are getting board and want to move on. I had the pleasure of meeting Amy on a flight from Portland to Boston, and she is a very quiet lady. She likes her privacy, and rarely signs autographs or takes pics with fans. Matt on the other hand is quite the opposite of Amy. He is boisterous, loud, excited, too hyper and I think he might have a chemical imbalance. However, this show has ran it's limit and I wish the family God's peace, and hope that they get the privacy they so deserve.

Cust. Svc. said...

The truth is we do not know why the show is in its last season and we should not care. We watched the show because it captured our interest. I loved the show because it bought to my attention that I have no reason to complain about anything at all. I walk into my kitchen and can reach my sink, cabinets with no problem at all. I do not/did not have anything custom made to fit my physical form and for that I am blesses. I do not have to face forms discrimination i.e the county planners office for the deck in the back of their house and I do not have ignorant people patting me on the head because I am so small, i.e. the LP Convention in Wisconsin.

I think Amy is an awesome Mom! She works two jobs deals with four children that do what children do, which is be selfish and she does not loose her mind. I am a mom of four girls and still do not deal with my children as graceful and Amy does. So Amy my hats off to Darlin you are Awesome!

As for Matt, he is great! He is a mans, man. He takes care of his family. It may not be the way we think he should, but he has vision and he does what he has to do to make sure those visions come to fruition and provides for his family at the same time.

So if they get a spin off I will watch, if not then oh well. They have been given an opportunity that we all would have jumped at if given the chance. So for all of you negative Nelly's about this family please keep your opinions to yourself. Because if you were in their situation with out the cameras you know you would not be able to handle what they go through.

The Roloffs live their life for them and not for us. I thank them for allowing me into their lives with this show. It has showed me a lot and taught me that in the grand scheme of things I have nothing to complain about at all! I wish them well!

Rap541 said...

"So for all of you negative Nelly's about this family please keep your opinions to yourself."

And yet another 'SHUT UP IF YOU WON'T PRAISE MATT, BLESS HIS EVERY ACTION AND WORD" poster :)

Do we need to explain what a discussion board is vs a fan board again? Because no one is telling the "I love Matt" crowd to shut up.... so perhaps the "I love Matt so SHUT UP you haters!" could maybe take the point?

Mike P. said...

Well, I'm a Negative Nelly, and I'm glad that my critical faculties are intact for now and that I have a place to post my opinion.

I'm also a man, and believe me, a "man's man" of the Roloff variety is a laughingstock. A foolish caricature. A thigh-slapping joke.

No way would I treat a wife and kids the way this strutting jackass treats his. The lessons Roloff is passing to his kids are dangerous.

James said...

They need to bring the show back and may be show farm and molly and jacob activities some weeks and then do a twin brother set up on other weeks.

Glad to see them go! said...

I think they should end the show as soon as possible. There is no great significance in the show and what I have seen from it they are very unappreciative to everything that they have been given. Like in the last episode thousands of dollars were put towards their Dixie Chopper mower for Matt and they don't even show it on Television except him making his son mow the grass. They take things for granted and only think about themselves. It all seems like a pity party for the Roloffs but they are making it quite nicely as is. What else do they need? Really nothing. I don't think another show should be produced what so ever. As of the Little People, Big World I will never watch another minute of the pointless reality show. They should just leave where they stand, and go on living their lives like normal people. Schemeing to stay in the limelight is not the way to go. Many people frown upon it, and it's not a good reputation to carry. I feel bad for the many people that they have taken advantage of and taken for granted. People were nice enough to hand them things left and right and no appreciation goes to show towards them. I hope that the show ends and reality sets in when no one is there to hand them everything. It's just all a waste. How sad.

drw said...

I am very disappointed with one of last night's episodes. Dixie Chopper delivered a mower to the Roloffs FREE. TLC was there to greet the Dixie Chopper truck and filmed the delivery to the Roloffs. Was there any mention at all of this? Was there any gratitude expressed that this company gave them the mower and went to the expense of delivering it themselves? Absolutely not!!! How ungrateful. I'm glad the show is cancelled. I didn't watch it anyway, but they do not deserve the opportunities that have been opened up to them because of the show.

Dave said...

I think the show lost relevance the moment it stopped being about a mixed family facing everyday life challenges and became all about vacations, unnecessary toys, how NOT to discipline your kids and Matt and his stupid attempts to turn a farm into a cut rate Disneyland. Now, it simply exposes Matt as a selfish blow hard who never met a ridiculous project he didn't like, and who continually drags his family into it.

Regarding the kids, I worry very much about Jacob and Jeremy. And much of this is due to the fact that neither Matt or Amy have the slightest clue what discipline means. But at least Amy tried. Jacob acts like a spoiled brat with zero impulse control, while Jeremy will hopefully learn how to tie his own shoes once the cameras shut down. Molly and Zach both show signs of actually turning into normal people.

But leave it to TLC to continue it's fine programming, now featuring shows with Sarah Palin (hopefully she will stay out in the woods), a polygamist, and a family that does nothing but breed children.

Susan said...

I love the Roloffs and I enjoy their show. Yes they have been able to expand their territory with the money that fame has brought them, but they still act like a normal family with typical challenges. I am really sorry to see their show end. It is definitely one of my favorites and I find VERY little on TV that I care to see. Mostly pure soap opera morning, noon and night.

Greg said...

They still act like a normal family? How? Well, yeah even very wealthy people are still people. They still go to the bathroom. The kids play video games.

But that's about it. A hired housekeeper. Professionals to do all the "farm projects". A personal cook? Private meetings with owners of businesses to give advice? A special invite to shoot an airshow? Oh yeah, these are everyday normal things that happen to every family.

They fight over how many parking spaces each member of the family has for their classic cars or who gets to go on the vacation of the month.

Anonymous said...

Please don't end the show. I so enjoy it.

Ann said...

TLC should review the decision to discontinue LPBW, Are they trying to tell the discerning viewing public, for example, that the overrated "Kate Plus Eight" series draws more viewers?? This obnoxious woman should have been given the boot long ago--it's painful to watch her. In fact, she should be pitied. Stats/ratings can be manipulated, helping to explain why Kate is still in front of the camera while the Roloffs are signing off. Shame on TLC!

Nick said...

on this last episode, did they really just say they have 34 vehicles?...amazing...seems like they could put some of that money into their own charities.

Anonymous said...

I will miss the show...I really like watching them. They were a nice family. They were funny and loving to all.

Vic Rattlehead said...

"I wish Matt would stick to one story. "

Matt's biggest problem is that he's a chronic pathological liar who constantly reinforces his previous lies with more new lies until they get so big that he can't hide the fact that he's been caught.

To put it bluntly Matt wouldn't know the truth if it came and punched him in the nose.

Spidey said...

I have always enjoyed the show. It is better than ANYTHING else TLC has to offer. Cake Boss?!? Now that's $h-t for TV. TLC has really been pretty poor since messing up Trading Spaces.

Lassiter said...

I always wondered how much the family was paid for product placement on the show. Apple, Nikon, Mercedes, etc. They always own the best of everything.

Steve Johnson said...

I can say for a fact that I truly loved and have watched this show from the very beginning. At first it was very refreshing, and later becoming extremely painful. While watching the Roloffs grow and go in different directions, I found myself looking at my own life, and pondering. Oh well, that's life. What started as a family grounded in GOD simply seems to have end in HOLLYWOOD BS. Each week I VCR'ed then DVD'ed it, and now DVR it. How time truly has flown by for all of us. I have watched each episode 3-20 times each, for all these years, even questioning several times whether or not the series would return, and for a time it looked like it would not. I understand some of the struggles of new founds, and the changes it makes to all lives. How unfortunate that WE as reviews love to watch or love to HATE. While we watch someone else fall or fail, we should be helping them by picking them up!

To Matt: Let go, find again and listen to your soul-mate Amy!
To Amy: Stop over mothering. I sometimes wish I was your son. I did not have it so good.
To Jeremy (Farmer): All that is, is NOT all that! Time marks all men, looks fade. What you do is how you will be remembered.
To Zach: You are so much more than you know! Get Real!
To Molly: What a beautiful soul and mind! Keep it real and do not forget!
To Jake: Never take anything for granite. Time is the enemy. Your parents love you deeply! Start growing up, right.

GOD bless you all!!

First off how does a reality show jump the shark??? stupid.
Anywho, TLC better do a spin-off I love the roloffs and it sucks that they wont be on my DVR every monday, its pretty upsetting that TLC will cancel a great show like Little People, Big World and then say their is no spin-off and that its alot harder to start a reality show blah blah blah but a douche bag with 4 wives can get his ownshow??? TLC, thats just sickening....

Blonde said...

I love all the Roloff family members and will miss them terribly! Mondays became my favorite day of the week because I could come home from work and catch their show!! The Roloffs are a genuine family will real life issues. They all contribute something unique to the show. Matt is dynamic! He keeps the show exciting with all of his creativeness. I want the show to continue!!!!

Wow, some of you people are so judgmental and critical of the roloffs. Many of the comments paint the parents as lousy and the kids as spoiled brats. To me, the seem like a pretty normal family and the parents love their children and try to instill good values in them.

Rap541 said...

Roof cleaning - when Matt Roloff was agreeing on his facebook with his buddy Pondo the Mad Greek that people who complained about his parking fees were cheap bastard douchbags, did you soundly complain to Matt that he was judgemental?

Because he was. And pretty offensively crude for a Christian Man of the Book. Did you chide Matt and judge him?

Or did you sit silent?

I notice that when Matt is a crude pig laughing about bastard douchebags, none of his Christian fans have a word of judgement to say. Nor do the Christian fans have a word of judgement to say to Matt as, as a Christian father and husband, he allows himself to be called a sexy bitch and has various female fans advocating adultery on his facebook.

Bless Matt for endorsing hate! Bless Matt for endorsing adultery! If I have learned ANYTHING about Christianity from Matt Roloff, its that being a HYPOCRIT PLEASES THE LORD! Yay SexyBitchMATT! :)

I really like this show, no murder and mayham. Just about a family and Matt is a riot. I got to know this family and will miss them. How about a yearly special about whats going on with them. Isnt it funny, the more you watch them the less you look at them as Little People, they are just a family, living on a farm in Oregon.

Sandy B said...

I think this was a wonderful program about a loving family with true values. We've had the pleasure of watching the children grow up and observe the ups and downs of marriage. We felt their sorrow for the loss of their wonderful family friend and we learned of some of the problems that they had to overcome..also, Matt and Amy are generous of their time..I wish there were more programs like this one and I will miss them greatly.

ART Gonzalez said...

This was a wonderful show. Let's not loose sight of the fact that it was also TV. Who cares who called it quits! There is no defeat here. How many people can say they had a hit show for multiple seasons? Why not make yourself look good when parting ways? You don't think TLC has a public relations department? Why can't Matt? Matt is a talented business man who strategies just like any other TV executive would. For that he should be commended for not criticized.

Brady Hunsberger said...

MY LORD. THEY SHOULDNT HAVE GOTTEN RID OF LITTLE PEOPLE BIG WORLD AND CANCELED THAT OTHER STUPID SHOW WITH THOSE TO LITTLE PEOPLE. I THINK ITS CALLED, ''THE LITTLE COUPLE''??? Those two are annoying. I would much rather have the roloffs to watch then them.

Allison said...

The thing about the Roloffs that bugged me the most was their attitude with fans.

I know most celebrities hate their fans but gosh I don't think it's right. It bugs me that if you meet the Roloffs and say you're a fan that always watched their show, their reaction is to want to get away from you.

If you never supported the them by watching the show and couldn't have cared less about watching their show or what they had to say, they were more likely to be decent to you.

Matt's said that kinda thing about how they don't look people in the eyes when there are fans and it was proven with the video from the girl on the cruise with Jeremy and Zach. They treated fans badly but hung out with the rich cruise girl that never watched the show or cared about them at all.

What can I say, it does annoy me. If I was a celebrity I would be more grateful to people that like me and not ungrateful snobs like the Roloffs.

I like watching the show in beginning, until it all became about money. I think all the fame and money, back fired on Jeremy and Zach. They're sooooo used to all the easy money, vacations, etc that they'll have to get REAL jobs now, and find that u REALLY have to work hard to make a living!!!

What a shame, the show was fantastic for the first two seasons. Its been a train wreck ever since the 3rd season. All the money has gone to Matt's head. Amy needs to nail his head into the ground before the money is all gone if Matt has not already spent it on his Grand Pumpkin Patch of NW Oregon.
