Just two weeks into Season 2, Spike has ordered a 20-episode third season of pop culture hit Lip Sync Battle. The new season will tape later this year and a Season 3 premiere date will be announced in the near future, says Spike.
Hosted by LL Cool J with Chrissy Tiegen as commentator, Lip Sync Battle features celebrities going head to head – lip-syncing the song of their choice – battling for the coolest bragging rights on the planet. In its first two episodes this season, Lip Sync Battle is averaging 4.4 million viewers and is TV’s top-ranked series in its timeslot with a 3.1 rating in Adults 18-49, according to Spike. The series also has amassed over half a billion video streams since its launch last April, with over 50 million alone for the Season 2 premiere featuring Channing Tatum vs. Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
“Lip Sync Battle is a multiplatform pop-culture phenomenon that has played an integral role in delivering a new and broader audience to Spike,” said Kevin Kay, Spike President.
Lip Sync Battle is executive produced by Casey Patterson of Casey Patterson Entertainment, Jay Peterson of Matador Content, John Krasinski, Stephen Merchant and 8 Million Plus Productions.
