ABC has renewed Shaq vs. the summer reality series starring Shaquille O’Neal for a six episode run this summer.

Shaq Vs. stars O’Neal  in competition versus top athletes in other sports. In season one, O’Neal wound up verus Pittsburgh Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger,  Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh  the St. Louis Cardinals’ Albert Pujols, Oscar de la Hoya  and Michael Phelps.

Despite being given a handicap, Shaq didn’t win any of the competitions last year.

Shaq vs. the ratings didn’t see the 7 footer come up very tall.  Its best numbers of season one were a 1.7 live+SD adults 18-49 rating and around 4.3 million viewers, but that still winds up better than much of the summer fare on the broadcast networks.
