Looks like season three for Dark Side of the Ring is a lock at this point as Variety is reporting that the docuseries is the highest-rated program in the history of VICE TV which launched in 2016.
According to Nielsen Live+3 data for both seasons, the series averaged 423,000 viewers for each episode. In the 18-49 demographic they averaged 242,000 viewers. Season two averaged 485,000 viewers per episode with 288,000 viewers in the 18-49 demographic. That is a jump of 52% and 73% from season one. The season two finale which focused on Owen Hart’s death was clearly the highest rated episode.
Morgan Hertzan, who is VICE TV’s executive vice president and general manager said:
“We are absolutely ecstatic with the success of ‘Dark Side of the Ring.’ Audiences respond to our courageous compelling storytelling, and this series has proven to be heavyweight in the television landscape. I am very proud to partner with the incredible creatives at Vice Studios, and tag team executive producers Evan Husney and Jason Eisener who have so skillfully crafted this show. It is in every way the no holds barred type of programming that you can expect to see on Vice TV. Looking forward to the next KO!”
Chris Jericho narrated season two while Evan Hunsey was the writer and Jason Eisener was the director. Vanessa Case, Naveen Prasad, and Catherine Whyte are the executive producers, with Alex McIntosh producing.
