Scripps Networks Interactive had plenty to boast about at its Upfront event Tuesday morning at Alice Tully Hall, a precursor to the celeb-filled event for advertisers held later in the day. President, national ad sales and marketing Jon Steinlauf started things off, noting the ratings rises at Scripps nets are rare in the cable world right now. The secret? “Personal is the new premium,” said chief programming, content & brand officer Kathleen Finch. “Our goal now is to make content that matters and turn talent into household names.”

HGTV, on pace to deliver its best first quarter ever, has a programming lineup of 17 premiere series, fresh episodes of 24 shows and 14 one-hour specials. New real estate titles include recently launched Listed Sisters, along with Good Bones, Home Town, Masters of Flip and Vintage Flip. Mountain Life is a new entry in the destination programming category. “HGTV is thriving because we have an established cadre of compelling star experts, as well as an influx of new talent who resonate with our audience,” said Allison Page, GM, HGTV, DIY and Great American Country. “Our content and scheduling is solid, we have a powerful development pipeline, and we’ve grown our audiences across the board – particularly upscale audiences – for several years.”

Travel Channel is taking a turn to the fun side. “Look for more Travel Channel shows like Expedition Unknown and Bizarre Foods that provide much-needed escape from the daily grind,” said Courtney White, SVP, programming. “We’ll travel to plenty of far-flung and fascinating places, eat mouthwatering foods and have lots of laughs along the way.” With five consecutive months of ratings gains, the net has commissioned 400 original programming hours, and has over 35 new series (like Andrew Zimmern’s Driven by Food and Dartboard Road Trip) and pilots in the pipeline. Travel is event-izing summer with offerings like 7 Water Wonders, Top Secret Swimming Holes, Xtreme Waterparks and Life’s a Beach.

On the menu at Food Network and Cooking Channel are 30 new series and 40 returning shows. “Continuing to fuel our pipeline with series that entice co-viewing and entertain audiences of all ages is a top priority for 2016,” said SVP, programming and development Didi O’Hearn. New to Food will be Cooks vs. Cons, Cake Masters, Guy’s Grocery Games Redemption Tournament, 12 Hungry Yelpers and Kids BBQ Championship, among others, while Extra Virgin: Americana, Million Dollar Critic, Cheap Eats and Patti LaBelle’s Place are among the selections on Cooking’s programming plate.

Great American Country grew ratings by over 30 percent in 1Q16 among prime viewers P25-54, and they did it by taking it outside. “We will keep building on our success by focusing on families who love the experience of outdoor living,” said Page. The network released a slate of returning series: Season 2 of Going RV will premiere Wednesday, May 4, at 9p, while, the second season of Lake Guys debuts Thursday, May 5 at 8p. Additionally, season 7 of Flea Market Flip is set for Sunday, July 3, at 9p and season 2 of Mega Decks will premiere in July.
