"All of these new series have demonstrated increasing popularity and generated far-reaching interest among viewers," said Paul Telegdy, executive vice president of alternative programming. "Equally important, each has a compelling and innovative format, and a second season will allow these shows to grow creatively and attract an even wider audience."
