The series will return in 2013, along with the popular tattoo competition series "Best Ink," with new host Pete Wentz.

Not only did the network's energized programming slate resonate with viewers, but with Madison Avenue as well, bringing in 15 new advertisers in 2012, including a unique integration with candy maker Brach's and a multimedia partnership with ULTA Beauty for the upcoming launch of "The Face."
