OH NO!!! Starz Power Losing a Chunk of Viewership as Cable Provider Optimum Drops STARZ!! — 50 Cent’s breakout TV series Power could be losing a large chunk of viewership in the New York region, as cable provider Optimum has severed ties with STARZ, Deadline reports. Following the news, 50 Cent took to Instagram to urge fans to call Optimum and petition to get STARZ back on-air.
“Optimum doesn’t think POWER is good enough after all the success of the show. The numbers are great , I guess it’s the wrong color faces in the picture again,” 50 wrote on Instagram suggesting that the show’s predominantly black cast members could be a reason the series is under threat.
50’s Power co-stars Omari Hardwick (Ghost) and Joseph Sikora (Tommy) confirmed the news on Instagram as well with Hardwick opening up about the news in a lengthy Instagram post.
