The show, which aired out of repeat episodes of the highly-rated The Big Bang Theory premiered to two million total viewers on Jan. 17 and 1.2 million adults 18-49 and 586,000 adults 18-34. In Live +7 the first three episodes of King of the Nerds averaged 2.1 million viewers, with 1.3 million adults 18-49 and 670,000 adults 18-34. The show ends its first season March 7.
"King of the Nerds has really clicked with TBS viewers, introducing such concepts as cosplay, quadcopter gaming and nerdcore rap to the uninitiated," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and TCM. "We look forward to another round of hilarious competition when a new contingent of nerds sets out to win the crown."
King of the Nerds was the network's first foray into the unscripted space, part of its initiative to have year-long original programming. It's second unscripted series, Who Gets the Last Laugh premieres April 16. Howie Mandel's Deal With It (working title) and Mark Burnett's Trust Me, I'm a Game Show Host (wt) also make their debuts later this year.
