New house flipping series
On August 25, 2016 HGTV has launched yet another spin on the house flipping theme – Desert Flippers is a brand new reality series that features Eric and Lindsay Bennett flipping houses in Palm Springs, California. Produced by Nance Glass Productions, the show is executive produced by Nancy Glass, Brian Balthazar and Bart Makatche, with Mark Downing co-executive producing. The freshman season contains eight half-hour episodes.
Wisconsin transplants, the Bennetts are parents to three small children, which is an 24/7 job by itself, but they manage to successfully renovate and sell houses for a profit in the triple-digits California desert heat. The first episode features a house bought by Lindsay and Eric sight unseen, and its condition turns out surprising... and not in a good way. Squatters and scorpions have done their job, but the couple turns the property into a lovely home with a pool and other amenities, transforming it beyond recognition.
Strong ratings and chances of renewal
Desert Flippers is doing very well ratings-wise, with the strong premiere viewership of 1.4 million viewers an a 0.33 rating in the 18-49 demo. The following episodes` ratings declined slightly and predictably, as is typical after the series premiere, but remained above 1 million viewers per episode. The family is charming, energetic and has a naturally positive approach to their business. Considering the solid numbers, we predict that the commission for a second season is not too far away, so please stay tuned, and we will inform you if and when it is confirmed by HGTV.
