Vice Eyes More ?Dark Side Of The Ring? & Plans To Expand Franchise Into New Worlds


Recommended Posts

Dark Side of the Ring has become one of Vice TV?s biggest ever series. The youth-skewing cable network is now looking to double-down on the wrestling docuseries as well as expand the franchise into new areas.


Morgan Hertzan, EVP & General Manager, Vice TV told Deadline that the show has become a ?mega-hit? for the network.


?We are eagerly looking forward to explore more ways to do more episodes of Dark Side of the Ring and Dark Side of other strands,? he said. ?We also are looking at all of our audience data and what people love about that show is, and are using it to inform other shows that we?re greenlighting. The audience is telling us they love this kind of storytelling so we want to keep delivering on that over and over again.?


The first three episodes of this season made up the top three most-watched shows in the network?s history, according to Nielsen, and episodes of the show make up five of the net?s most-watched telecasts among viewers 18-49 and 25-54 as well as 8 of the top ten P2+ viewers.






The wrestling audience is definitely niche, so I can see why they are looking to expand to "other strands." Dark Side of is a money-maker expansion, IMO. Every sport has a closet full of skeletons worth exploring.
