Dr. Pimple Popper, a show full of things I can’t quite believe that I’m seeing even though I tune in every week, will return for a second season in January 2019. That’s about five months away, so do keep your barf bags handy.
In a press release announcing the Season 2 pickup, TLC called the show, centered on dermatologist Sandra Lee, a “hit,” noting that it’s ranked No. 1 with women in the 25-45 age demographic since debuting in July.
According to ShowBuzzDaily, viewership has hovered around the 2 million mark for the past five weeks. It’s scored higher numbers than the current season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Khloe, you’ve been replaced by a lipoma that looks like chicken.
Howard Lee, President and GM, TLC, said in a statement:
“We are delighted our viewers have embraced Dr. Pimple Popper, making it a hit for TLC this summer. We look forward to giving viewers more of the fantastic Dr. Sandra Lee and showcasing how she tackles challenging conditions and, most importantly, improves her patients’ lives in the upcoming season.”
Even more importantly than that most important notion of improving lives is irrigating pus out of cysts with the consistency of oatmeal. And I think to myself, what a wonderful world-slash-that looks delicious.
