truTV’s Hardcore Pawn Launches Season 6 with More than 2.5 million Viewers

Breakout Hit Scores 33% Growth over Season 5 Premiere

truTV’s breakout hit Hardcore Pawn kicked off its sixth season with a bang last night. The show averaged more than 2.5 million viewers in Live + Same Day, up 33% compared to its season five premiere.

Last night's Hardcore Pawn was especially popular among young men, ranking second among all ad-supported programs in the timeslot with men 18-49 (728,000). In addition, the show scored 1.2 million adults 18-49.

Produced by Zodiak USA, Hardcore Pawn takes viewers behind the scenes of the immense American Jewelry & Loan, a family business owned by third-generation pawnbroker Les Gold. Working with Les are his son, Seth, who is being groomed to eventually take over the store, and daughter, Ashley, who thinks Seth isn’t ready for the top job. Hardcore Pawn is executive-produced by Natalka Znak, Mike Gamson, Claire O’Donohoe and Richard Dominick.
