Spike, another network joining the renewal frenzy that has my lists of cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012 already at near 300 shows for the year. And now, the stapler from the cabler, and even though it is not the same as the original Storage Wars from A&E, the show has proved to be a successful option, and therefore Spike renewed Auction Hunters for season four.
Spike has picked up a fourth season of 26 episodes of “Auction Hunters,” starring the two best prospectors in the business, Allen Haff and Ton Jones. The announcement was made today by Sharon Levy, Spike TV’s Executive Vice President, Original Series.
The recently completed season three of “Auction Hunters” (March 21-June 6) delivered 1.9 million viewers and improved the timeslot with Men 18-49 by +102% and Men 35-49 by +121%.
What is Auction Hunters about?
Every year in America, 50,000 storage facilities hold auctions for abandoned storage units and, at these auctions, over $1 billion worth of goods changes hands. Each unit has the potential to be a goldmine or a bust for those who make their living hunting unclaimed property. “Auction Hunters” cuts the lock and opens the door into the high stakes, financial risks and potential rewards where the right purchase can bring in serious cash. The series follows Haff and Jones in their quest to win auctions, dig for abandoned historical treasure and sell them for a profit.
