DIY Network's "Salvage Dawgs" Episode Ranks as Highest-Rated, Most-Watched of Series

7/14/2015 4:15 PM

Sunday night’s 9P-9:30P premiere of Salvage Dawgs on DIY Network now ranks as the highest-rated and most-watched episode of the series. Additionally, it was a Top 5 rated telecast of the year on DIY among P25-54 ratings.  More than 1.2 million viewers tuned in to DIY on Sunday night, helping the network grow 50% versus year ago levels.


Salvage Dawgs stars Robert Kulp and Mike Whiteside, co-owners of a top architectural salvage business called Black Dog Salvage. During the series, Robert and Mike secure remarkable vintage pieces of America’s past from soon-to-be demolished homes.  The guys then sell these valuable pieces -- everything from doors, windows, mantles and more -- to a wide range of clients, including construction workers and high-end interior designers who use them to restore other historical buildings or add character to newer structures.
