You Never Know What’s Gonna Come Through That Door: Secrets of Pawn Stars

The Unlikely Show Was a Hit Everywhere

The first episode of Pawn Stars aired a year later and was the No. 2 reality show, only second to Jersey Shore. An original episode that hit airwaves in January 2011 was watched by more than 7 million viewers, making it the most-watched program ever on History Channel.

The reality series wasn’t just a hit in the United States either. Since its debut, the series has been translated into 38 languages and has aired in more than 150 countries. Rick Harrison has even said he has “been mobbed” by people in places like Buenos Aires, the Philippines, Kuala Lumpur, and New Delhi. He also added, “Everywhere in the world, people know the show.”
