A miniature golf competition, Holey Moley features 12 contestants facing off, on a supersized mini-golf course, in head-to-head sudden-death matchups. Executive producer Stephen Curry serves as the resident golf pro, with Rob Riggle on color commentary, Joe Tessitore providing play-by-play, and Jeannie Mai as a sideline correspondent. Only three players make it to “Mt. Holey Moley,” the final hole. The ultimate winner leaves with a $25,000 prize, as well as “The Golden Putter” trophy, and a “Holey Moley” plaid jacket.
The first season of Holey Moley averaged a 0.68 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.22 million viewers. Of ABC’s 14 Summer TV series, Holey Moley’s ratings landed it in the middle of the pack.
Here’s the renewal announcement:
