VH1 doesn’t plan to strip “Dating Naked” from its schedule anytime soon.
The channel has renewed the reality series, which features brave souls seeking love while baring it all in every sense of the phrase, for a second season.
The first season of the series has averaged 1 million total viewers weekly, with a .6 rating in the 18-49 demographic most sought by advertisers. Online, “Dating Naked” has racked up 500,000 weekly streams, with a season high of more than 750,000 streams the week of its sixth episode.
“‘Dating Naked’ has been a ratings success for us and a viewer favorite,” VH1’s executive vice president of original programming & production, Susan Levison, said in a statement. “VH1 has always been about shaping the cultural conversation and we’re so glad to have created another pop culture lightning rod. The show is funny, engaging, and it actually works – we’ve helped six couples find love this season. You’re welcome, America.”
On Sept. 18, VH1 will air “Dating Naked: The Wedding,” which will feature the wedding of “Dating Naked” couple Ashley and Alika as they tie the knot in an all-nude — guests included — ceremony.
The second season of “Dating Naked” will premiere in summer 2015.
