Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous Gets New Life at NBC, Nick Cannon to Host

Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous NBC

Your champagne wishes and caviar dreams have come true.

NBC is planning to revive Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, the syndicated, unscripted series that visited the homes of the very wealthy to show regular joes how the other half lives.

Robin Leach hosted the original Lifestyles, which aired from the mid-1980s to the mid-90s; per The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported the news, America’s Got Talent emcee Nick Cannon will take his place in the new incarnation.

The updated Lifestyles reportedly will be told from Cannon’s point of view and will include wealthy tech entrepreneurs; it also will include coverage of the philanthropic efforts of its subjects.

Esquire Network (formerly Style) originally revived the concept last year but ultimately did not move forward with the project.

    Like the idea of the new and improved Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous. Hope Nick Cannon gives Robin Leach a run for his money. Wonder if A-list celebs will be featured on the Lifestyles reboot.

  4. Jan says:

    Seriously? It was trashy in its first incarnation. Feel sorry for writers trying to sell pilots of scripted shows.

  5. DavidSask says:

    Moving away from well known celebs is not a smart move for the show!

  6. Hello, after reading this amazing post i am as well cheerful to share my knowledge here with colleagues.

  7. Meh. A TV show glorifying the rich might not be in good taste nowadays.

  8. Eric says:

    Everything old is new again. That being said, Nick is a super funny guy. I’ve been watching him since his Nickelodeon days. We’ll see how this turns out.

  9. Ed says:

    Cribs on NBC?

  10. mfarris70 says:

    Nick Cannon?! I guess this reboot will be as tacky and C-list as the original. Leave it to NBC to keep scraping the bottom of the barrel.

  11. Ethel says:

    Nick Cannon? OH well, better than having to suffer through Carson Daly. Oh wait, I won’t watch it so not a problem

  12. Matt Ceccato says:

    Nick Cannon is not Robin Leach. That will serve the show a lot better. However, Robin Leach has that voice. As long as the show remembers to include the celebs along with the tech people and philanthropists, this could work

  13. Melora says:

    A TV Show glorifying the population who control the wealth in this country is not a good idea.
    I believe this is only going to last one season.

  14. Tony Lang says:

    The original came during a decade of greed and excess. Not sure that “coverage of the philanthropic efforts of its subjects” will offset how distasteful it is to bring it back now. Just for kicks, they should hold the Premiere party in Detroit…

    It’s therapy. It’ll help him get over his loss of Mariah.

  16. Ryan Elder says:

    Congrats to NBC and nick cannon for bringing back this very entertaining show. Its truly intriguing and inspirational and never should have went off the air. One day nick will be at my estate.

    I was a huge fan of the original show, because it was beautiful and classy. I’m not sure sure about a remake of this show, because remakes usually are flops. I’m willing to watch it because I love Nick Cannon, but I hope that he keeps it classy and not only showcase the homes of rappers and athletes. Please not another MTV Cribs, but give us a variety of celebs, authors, designers, and business moguls just as Robin Leach did. This will target all demographics.
