Spike TV has ordered new seasons for two of its highest-rated unscripted series, Auction Hunters and American Digger.
Both series will go into production this fall and premiere in 2013.
Auction Hunter's third season averaged 1.9 million viewers and improved the timeslot among males 18 to 49 by 102% and men 35 to 49 by 121%. The first season of American Digger averaged 1.2 million viewers and improved the timeslot with men 35 to 49 and guys 18 to 49 by 36% and 11%, respectively.
"We are thrilled to bring back new episodes of two of our most popular shows that speak to the network's mission of delivering bold, non-scripted entertainment with real stakes," said Sharon Levy, Spike TV's executive vice president of original series.
