On a “most current” basis, season two of “Below Deck” is averaging 1.5 million total viewers and 808,000 adults 18-49.

Bravo plans to extend the show’s second season with a “The Crew Tells All” special next Tuesday and a reunion special hosted by Andy Cohen on Nov. 4.

“Below Deck, which follows the crew of a luxury yacht as they deal with their wealthy charter guests, is produced by 51 Minds with Mark Cronin, Courtland Cox and Elise Duran serving as executive producers and Rebecca Henning as co-executive producer.

    I Love this show! I just finished watching the rerun with Timothy Sykes as the guest, and I am fuming! He is the most obnoxious, arrogant son of a bitch I have ever seen! I looked him up on Facebook and was so tempted to tell him what I think, but I thought better of it (for now)…..I love the crew, I love Captain Lee and I sure hope to see more seasons of this show!

    I really enjoyed this show, especially because I was in the high end hospitality world also. And I could definitely see doing this for a while.
    Travel and work. It’s what I called my freedom 35 plan… but then was in an awful car wreck on my 39th bday.
    Does anyone know when the new season is to begin? I just love being able to witness being at see from that Gorgeous yacht! Wowza! What an office view is right Captain Lee.
