The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will not be returning to network television, after almost two decades on the air.
Corporate executives announced the decision on Friday. Leslie Wexner, the chief executive of Victoria’s Secret’s parent company, L Brands, said the company had been “taking a fresh look at every aspect of our business,” according to the New York Times.
Viewership of the once-popular fashion show has plummeted by two-thirds over recent years, according to the Times.
The show has often been criticized for objectifying women and has faced recent criticism after CMO Edward Razek made about casting plus-sized and transgender models in the show.
The fashion show first aired in 2001 on ABC.
