Nickeklodeon faced a big time rating loss last quarter, but the channel vows that this quarter the views will hit a new high. The company is bringing on Master P’s daughter, Cymphonique Miller, to star in her own original series called “How to Rock.”
“We’re hoping for great things from Cymphonique– a big, fat, giant hit,” Nickelodeon’s president for original programming Margie Cohn told AllHipHop.com. “That’s what I’ve been working for with this series, so why not say it?”
Stardom runs all throughout the family starting with Master P who is known as one of the most successful hip hop businessman. Cymphonique’s older brother, Romeo Miller, also had his own show on Nickelodeon from 2003-2006.
Despite Cymphonique’s big dreams of stardom and her family’s success, Master P tells AllHipHop.com that he didn’t want his 15-year-old daughter to get into the entertainment industry.
“I tried everything in my power to stop this girl because this can be a hard, sick business — really easy to get taken advantage of,” he said to AllHipHop.com. “I guess you can’t hold raw talent back.”
Viacom’s chief exectutive Phillippe Dauman tells AllHipHop.com that Cymphonique’s show is just one of the many more new shows they have planned. Dauman expects that with her show leading the change, the new shows will boost ratings so that “next quarter we expect to see stronger ad sales growth.”
Fans of Nickelodeon and the Miller family can look forward to “How to Rock’s” debut next month set for February 4.
Master P’s daughter is following in the footsteps of her older brother, Romeo, by landing her own show on Nickelodeon.
Fifteen-year-old Cymphonique Miller will star in “How To Rock,” debuting Feb. 4, and the network already has plans to make her the pop phenome of 2012. To promote the show, they’ve created an eight-part video about the teen and the song, “Only You Can Be You,” which she sings in the first episode of the series, is already available on iTunes.
Margie Cohn, Nickelodeon’s president for original programming, said they’re hoping Cymphonique will be “a big, fat, giant hit.”
Master P on the other hand was a little hesitant about putting his baby girl in the spotlight.
“I tried everything in my power to stop this girl because this can be a hard, sick business — really easy to get taken advantage of,” he told AllHipHop.com. “I guess you can’t hold raw talent back.”
With her father by her side, Cymphonique should be able to keep a good head on her shoulders. It’s great to see a young black girl headlining a show on a major kid’s network. Are your children fans of Nickelodeon?

He took over as Elmo upon his formal introduction in November of 1985. Since then Clash has been awarded 9 Daytime Emmys for his performance as Elmo and Hoot the Owl. In 2006 he wrote an autobiography titled, ”My Life as a Furry Red Monster: What Being Elmo Has Taught Me About Life, Love and Laughing Out Loud”.
