E! took the plunge with Olympian Ryan Lochte, but low ratings have lead the network to abandon the "Jeah!"

Lochte's reality TV series, What Would Ryan Lochte Do?, has been canceled after just one season, reports TV Line.

The eight-episode show that chronicled the popular Olympic swimmer's daily antics including his training regimen for the 2016 Games and dating life, has folded after averaging 440,000 total viewers.

Even after a considerable media push to get viewers excited for the show, the show's premiere drew only 800,000 viewers.

We were hoping for round 2 of Lochte with Fox 29's Mike Jerrick and Sheinelle Jones, but alas- in another lifetime.
