The plastic surgery fix show is E!’s most-watched and highest rated docu-series since 2011
Doctors Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif will be back to fix more horrible plastic surgery jobs on E!.
The cable network has given the freshman reality series a second season renewal. It’s set to return in early 2015.
Currently averaging 1.54 Million Total Viewers per episode and nearly 1 Million viewers in the advertiser-coveted Adults 18-49 demographic in its timeslot on Sundays, the show is tracking to become E!’s most-watched and highest rated docu-series since 2011.
The series reached a series high with its July 27 episode among total viewers, averaging 1.7 million viewers. It’s also the No. 1 show in its timeslot among Women 18-34 and Women 18-49 (excluding awards shows).
“The ‘Botched’ series has struck a chord with viewers who are drawn in by stories of excessive surgeries gone wrong,” said E!’s executive vice president of programming and development, Jeff Olde, in a statement.
He continued, “In the quest for perfection, we’ve tapped into a pop culture zeitgeist, sharing cautionary tales, positive outcomes and true transformations. We’re glad our audience has responded to these very personal stories.”
Produced by Evolution Media, “Bothced” follows Dubrow and Nassif as they take on patients who have had horrible plastic surgeries mistakes and try to fix the damage done. Season 1 has included former model and “America’s Next Top Model” judge Janice Dickinson, a man who went overboard to look like singer Justin Bieber and a woman whose reconstructive surgery after breast cancer went terribly wrong, among many others.
Both Dubrow and Nassif have appeared on Bravo’s “Real Housewives” franchise. Dubrow is currently married to Orange County’s Heather Dubrow and Nassif was previously married to former Beverly Hills cast member Adrienne Maloof.
Season 1 of “Botched” is set to conclude on Aug. 17.
