TLC renews Little People, Big World; A&E renews Dog the Bounty Hunter and Intervention

Two cable networks are picking up additional seasons of successful reality series.

TLC, which is moving away from Trading Spaces-style shows, has renewed Little People, Big World, which “follow[s] the experiences and challenges of the Roloff family, which includes both little people and normal-height members,” according to Variety. The show “has averaged a solid 1.3 million viewers since its premiere and posted a 40% increase in adults 18-49 vs. last year’s primetime average.” TLC will run an eight-episode marathon of the show this Saturday starting at 7 p.m. ET.

A&E is picking up a fourth season of Dog the Bounty Hunter, which will air this summer, and a third season of Intervention, which will air next winter. The network is also adding episodes of its new series King of Cars and picking up a new series, Sons of Hollywood, which “follows the sweet life of Spelling scion Randy Spelling and showbiz pals Sean Stewart (son of Rod) and talent agent Dave Weintraub as they move out of their parents’ homes and try life as roommates,” Variety reports.
