Series` info, hosts and concept
West Texas Investors Club is a documentary/reality series airing on CNBC since 2015. The current second season has premiered on June 7, 2016. The program is produced by The Eberson Lanigan Company and executive produced by Charlie Ebersol, Jason Henry and Dan Lanigan. The series is hosted by Mike “Rooster” McConaughey and Wayne “Butch” Gilliam, who are the title West Texas investors themselves. Their friend, colorful country musician Gil Prather is also featured on the show.
The two hosts, whose self-made millionaire fortunes are chiefly oil-related, meet with entrepreneurs who have an opportunity to pitch their fledgling projects and receive investor funding from Butch and Rooster. The duo has invested a combined amount of $1.97 million over the course of the first season of this Shark Tank-style series.
Viewership, current season and possible renewal
The viewers seem positive about the series, praising the sincerity of the hosts and their apparent desire to help people. They point out that their millions are completely self-earned, and that they know what it feels like to start from scratch, thus they are “all about helping the little guy”. The first season saw a progressive decline from 462,000 viewers for the season premiere to just over 200,000 for the finale, and the sophomore chapter opened with an audience of 370,000, and averaged over 300,000 viewers for the two subsequent episodes. West Texas Investors Club holds a 5.9/10 IMDb score, which is neither brilliant, nor a flop. Stay tuned for network announcements on the future of the Texas-style investor show.
