Power Slap debuted on January 18 on TBS following AEW Dynamite. The premiere episode drew 295,000 viewers. The finale drew 220,000 viewers, a low for the series, and a 0.05 rating in the 18 to 49 demographic.

The season culminated with a live event that broadcast exclusively on Rumble. White plans for future episodes to air on Rumble and is working on a deal to film season 2 in Abu Dhabi.

“I’ve come to a two-year deal for [Power Slap]. We haven’t done the deal yet but we have a term sheet. I have a term sheet with Rumble for the next two years to deliver two more episodes of the reality show, Power Slap, and eight live fights, and I’m working on a deal right now to film season 2 on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi,” White said on The Pat McAfee Show (via MMAFighting).

The debut of Power Slap was delayed a week after footage came out of Dana slapping his wife at a New Year's Eve party.
