ADDITIONAL NOTES: renewed through the 2015-16 season (the show's second) on 1/15/15
DESCRIPTION: (from Esquire's press release, January 2015) At today's Television Critics Association tour, Esquire Network announced the renewals of two original series, CAR MATCHMAKER and BOUNDLESS, as well as plans to once again air the RUNNING OF THE BULLS as a live, eight-day event this July. Matt Hanna, Esquire Network's head of original programming, made the announcements prior to the network's presentation of the April documentary series THE RUNNER-UP. Returning originals have been strong performers for the network, with an average increase of +36% among Men 18-49 and +45% among Adults 18-49 vs. first seasons. Building on this success, the network announced a second 18-episode season of CAR MATCHMAKER, set to premiere in 2nd Quarter 2015. In each half-hour episode, host Spike Feresten meets buyers in need of a car and draws upon his knowledge and instinct to find the perfect choice for them. The series is produced by Ellen Rakieten Entertainment, a division of Relativity Television.
