    It's not looking good for the  "entrepreneurs" of Bravo's "Start-ups: Silicon Valley," who have faced a series of unflattering time changes and unflattering reviews.

    The last show for Randi Zuckerberg's brainchild "Start-ups: Silicon Valley,"  is now slated for Wednesday at 3 p.m., according to Bravo's airing schedule. And, as of Tuesday, no other shows are listed in the future.

    (Yes, she's the sister of Silicon Valley great, Mark Zuckerberg.)

    The show used to have more promise. It used to air on Monday nights in  prime time, and then got bumped down to the much-worse time slot of 4 p.m. If you didn't notice, that's in the middle of the day, when most "real" Silicon Valley entrepreneurs are at work.

    The average number of viewers for the first six shows was a measly 517,000 compared to the 2.3 million viewers of a single "The Real Housewives" episode, according to Bravo ratings.

    Because of all this, other media outlets such as The New York Times and Pando Daily have surmised this means the Silicon Valley reality show will be getting the axe.

    Bravo hasn't made any official statement of the rumored cancellation.
