It’s back to the ‘Bar’ for Spike

Cabler renews show for second season

Spike has renewed “Bar Rescue” for a second season, following the company’s new, all-unscripted trajectory (Daily Variety, Aug. 30). Net has placed another 10-seg order for the nightspot renovation show, with production to start this winter and new episodes airing next summer.

“Bar Rescue,” produced by 3 Ball/Eyeworks, has earned solid ratings for the net; the series peaked with 1.3 million total viewers and started off with 742,000, so an investment in its growth seems warranted. “Blue Mountain State,” the net’s only remaining scripted program, averaged 1.3 million viewers in its second season and almost certainly costs far more to produce.

Instead, the net’s highest-rated show continues to be “Auction Hunters” (1.7 million), and it has acted accordingly: Upcoming on the net are “American Digger” from “Hunters” shingle Gurney, Al Roker Entertainment and Nuyorican’s “Big Easy Justice,” and “World’s Worst Tenants.”Original programming Sharon Levy told Variety last month that, with those new series, Spike had a full, year-round slate of unscripteds ready to roll.
