Chad Johnson just lost another job ... VH1 tells TMZ the network is cancelling plans to air Chad's upcoming reality show in the wake of his domestic violence arrest.

The series, titled "Ev and Ocho" is already in the can and was supposed to debut on Sept. 3.

But now, after Chad was arrested for allegedly headbutting his wife Evelyn Lozada ... VH1 tells us:

"Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series 'Ev and Ocho' from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it."

The show was a spinoff of "Basketball Wives" ... which followed the couple's relationship from dating to engagement. The new show was supposed to focus on "the journey of this charismatic and passionate couple's every step, as they prepare to walk down the aisle and into each other's hearts forever."

Oh NOOOO.....Evelyn your plot to have everyone tune in to your show has backfired...LOL..because of her HOT temper I am wondering if she ran up to Chad and he head butt her defending himself because he didn't want to punch her. The truth will surface.

When you say I do, this is what happens. The domino effect. All you had to do was make money, live by yourself and smash this fake reality chick on the side. When the red light of the camera is on, you lose. This is a stupid mistake that she will capitalize on while you lose everything and become Chris Brown #2. Now it's time to disapper.

It's a start....but media has a long way to go to get out of the misogyny business. Look at how awful BRAVO makes women look.

Lozada is an ugly tramp. Ocho is a super star and has the right to cheat

Tomorrow VH1 will announce a spinoff of a spinoff staring Ocho and T.O. sharing a one bedroom apartment and flipping burgers.

He did something wrong, but he is way overpaying for it. Unjust.

I think the was a wise decision. I think both of them are violent people and they should not be on the air to set an example for young teens. Who know what kind of disgusting things went on while taping the series. I wouldn't be surprised to see it available for purchase at the VH1 online store though.
