A Discovery Channel series, Gold Rush is an American reality show centered around the mining of gold in the Yukon Territory of Canada. It’s one of my favorite shows, although I have no idea why. Maybe it’s the way gold rush narrator Paul Christie reliably recaps the events preceding each commercial break, lending a relaxing predictability to the Yukon’s lack thereof. Discovery has perfected the clockwork drama of the “strike-it rich”, hard working reality TV series.


Now in its eigth season, Gold Rush continues to appeal to a broad viewing population . In total they have produced over 100 episodes running about an hour in length, with its series premiere coming in December of 2010. Its earlier seasons featured a much smaller number of episodes, totaling 11, 16, and 16 episodes in the first three seasons respectively. By the end of season seven however, each season featured a little more than 20 episodes per year, maxing out with 24 episodes in season five.

As with many of Discovery Channel’s reality series, Gold Rush has garnered a respectable viewership for a premium cable channel television series. Reaching its highest popularity in season two with an average of 4.59 million viewers per episode, they have maintained a similar audience with an average hovering around 4 million viewers for the rest of the series, while recent episodes have boasted a viewership will above 6 Million (R).


Catching Gold Fever

In the first season of Gold Rush, featured six men who had recently lost their jobs due to the recession, led by the Todd Hoffman, who’s typically faulty optimism drives much of the drama both inside and out of the Hoffman’s base camp. For these men and their families, the stakes are high, underscoring the risks involved and their inexperience.

Over the course of the series current run, the Hoffman’s have managed some degree of success, often in-spite of themselves. Their story has taken a back seat to some of the Yukon’s most experienced prospector’s, Tony Beets and “Dakota” Fred Hurt, and the young mining progeny, Parker Schnabel. Allowing the Hoffman’s to provide a bit of comic relief.
