‘Lip Sync Battle’ Renewed for Season 3

Spike re-ups celebrity air-singing competition series for 20 more episodes

Spike has renewed “Lip Sync Battle,” its hit celebrity competition series, for a third season, the network announced Tuesday.

“Lip Sync Battle” is hosted by LL Cool J with Chrissy Teigen and features celebrity guests going head to head putting on elaborate lip sync performances.

“Lip Sync Battle is a multiplatform pop-culture phenomenon that has played an integral role in delivering a new and broader audience to Spike,” said Spike President Kevin Kay in a statement.

The Season 2 premiere of “Lip Sync Battle” — in which Channing Tatum battled it out with wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum — set a new all-time high mark for the cable channel, with 4.7 million total viewers. That sum counts three days of delayed viewing and makes this the most-watched original series episode in Spike’s history.

In demo ratings news, the “Lip Sync Battle” Season 2 debut was the top-ranked show among viewers 18-49 (with a 3.45 rating) and 18-34 (a 3.43 rating) across all of television in the timeslot.

It is executive produced by Casey Patterson, Jay Peterson of Matador Content, John Krasinski, Stephen Merchant and Eight Million Plus Productions.

“Lip Sync Battle” airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
