Update: Bristol Palin’s Show, ‘Life’s a Tripp’ Booted from Primetime, Replaced by Reruns

As we reported on June 19, Bristol Palin’s new Lifetime reality show, Life’s a Tripp, was advertised as depicting a down-to-earth mom who just wanted the media to leave her and her son alone to live normal, happy lives, away from the prying eyes of the public. Well, it looks like she just might get her wish.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, amid a tidal wave of critical bashings and due to dismal ratings (726,000 its first week and only 586,000 in its second week), Life’s a Tripp has been bumped from its primetime slot and replaced with reruns of Dance Moms. Ouch.

And if that weren’t bad enough, both Bristol Palin and the producers of Life’s a Trip are reportedly now facing a lawsuit from Christopher and Kyle Massey, co-stars of a similar, unrealized reality show for Bio based on Brisol Palin’s life. The Massey brothers are claiming the show was their idea, which, at the moment, isn’t much of a feather in their hats.

For now anyway, Life’s a Tripp will continue to air at 11:00 pm on Tuesday nights on Lifetime.
