USA Orders More ‘Chrisley Knows Best’ Episodes

USA Network has added six additional episodes to the third season of its reality series Chrisley Knows Best, the network said Thursday.

The series will increase its third season episode order to 18 with the additional six shows, said network officials. The series will follow the Atlanta-based Chrisley family as they visit London.

Season two of Chrisley Knows Best averaged 2.3 million total viewers (live +7), up 37% over the show’ season one average, and 1.2 million adults 18-49, up 31% over its freshman campaign.

Season three is slated to premiere this summer on USA.

“We’re excited to follow the Chrisley family on this great adventure" said Jackie de Crinis, executive vice president, original programming for USA Network. “Todd is a creature of habit and prefers to be king of his own castle, so there is no telling what will happen when he travels outside of the USA for the first time ever.”
