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."

I don't think very many people would have watched it anyways and I think Vh1 came to the same conclusion way before this incident... That's why they were so quick to pull the plug.

The show will not be cancelled. They know they stand to make a lot of money off this foolishness and all this was staged to make a good show anyway.

I've never liked "Ocho"..he's an idiot. I don't know anything about Ev because I don't watch those trash "reality" shows but it seems like they were two peas in a pod...selling theirselves for reality TV...now they have no show and he has no career...how'd that work out for y'all???

PaHaaa!!!!! That was Evelyn Lozado's slam dunk. Let the "take down" begin. NO ONE with any sense thought that relationship would last. She just had to secure her position, financially. And with twins, even if it does not include alimony, she will make sure she STAYS in "the life." Again, PaHaaa!!!!! Yeah Ocho, it won't be Cinco.....it will be half. But she ain't black. Is she?????

Wait! Waaiittt! Wasn't it Chad that asked Ev to stop being nasty on her Twitter and elsewhere. To be a "Lady". He did what he could to try to tame a beast. He sees now that this beast is from the deep deep outback and can not be tamed. Glad the show isn't going to air. Although I suspect, with VH1's MO it will air after the storm. VH1 likes violence and drama unspeakable. Just like E! loves the K family. It ain't over. No petition will stop it cuz people are listening. Just like the K family. You watch, you comment, you look, and you listen. AND you repeat the slogans, and nonsense from the ridiculous reality tv people and make them,...it, popular. No show is going to turn away from what is in. C'mon. A way will be found to keep the fabulous and repulsive going. You care and give a darn so they, networks, can only aim to please there audience. Its business. You talk n you watch. This is how the K family is able to travel the world on a Teusday while you are at home commented on what they did yesterday.

Yup    

What a stupid dumbass. Not only is his football comeback over, but he's lost the money from the reality tv show, everyone now thinks of him as a woman beater and he might just lose his wife. All because he's the emotional equivalent of a child who can't stop himself from hitting people. DUMBASS...

Thank you VH1! I’m so sick of the buffoonery! Please replace this (slutty ass I’ll **** for a dinner and a handbag trick) with a quality show. She is such bully and a whore. I would never support anything that she was a part of. Oh, and PS Chad is clearly a homosexual! Bet the dumb bitch didn’t know that either. Haha! Gold-digging slutt!
