E Renews Total Divas

'Hello Ross,' 'Eric & Jessie' also nabbed season two pick-ups

E! is going back to the mat for another round with “Total Divas,” as the cabler has renewed the WWE reality show for a second season.

Network announced Monday that “Eric & Jessie: Game On” and weekly talkshow “Hello Ross” have been picked up for second seasons, as well.

“We are excited to bring back this diverse trio of successful series for second seasons,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Programming & Development, E!  “Each of these series feature compelling personalities that offer unique stories and points of view from the world of pop culture.  It’s exciting to have this strong line-up of returning series in addition to our other popular core franchises to help propel us into 2014.”

“Total Divas” has averaged 1.4 million total viewers since its summer debut, making it one of E!’s most promising new entries and a strong performer on Sunday nights in the 18-34 demo. From WWE and Bunim-Murray Prods., series centers on the lives of femme WWE stars both inside and outside of the ring.

“Hello Ross,” hosted by Ross Matthews, is averaging just under half a million viewers and is produced by Borderline Amazing. “Eric & Jessie: Game On,” which follows newly-weds Jessie James and Eric Decker, debuted in September and, like “Divas,” draws solid numbers for E! on Sunday nights with young adults and young women. Shed Media U.S. produces the docuseries.
