Famous in 12 is an American reality television-social experiment series that aired on The CW.[1] Premiering on June 3, 2014, the series chronicles the Artiaga family as they relocate to Los Angeles in order to seek fame over the course of 12 weeks.[2] TMZ and Harvey Levin provide the family with opportunities and situations to increase their chances.[3][4] While on the series, the family continues to build their brand utilizing social media to interact with viewers.[5] Each week features a "star power meter" that calculates which individual family member is receiving the most interest.[5] The show was canceled in week five and the family was sent home early due to lack of viewer interest.[6]
