TLC has announced the renewal of its hit freshman series 'Dr. Pimple Popper' for a second season, which is slated to air in January 2019. So far the series has been doing fairly well for TLC as it has been ranked #1 with W25-54 in its Wednesday 10:00 p.m. time period since its premiere on July 11.
As the digital series has driven millions of views across Facebook Watch and TLC GO, it has ranked No. 1 among women in between the ages 25-54 in its Wednesday 10:00 p.m. slot. Howard Lee, President, and GM, TLC, said, "We are delighted our viewers have embraced DR. PIMPLE POPPER, making it a hit for TLC this summer. We look forward to giving viewers more of the fantastic Dr. Sandra Lee and showcasing how she tackles challenging conditions and, most importantly, improves her patients’ lives in the upcoming season."
Dr. Pimple Popper features Dr. Sandra Lee, one of America’s top dermatologists, as well as Instagram and YouTube sensation, as she treats patients with unusual skin conditions and helps them to lead a life free of embarrassment-- one needle, pop, and scalpel at a time. The season finale airs Wednesday, August 15th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
