The truTV cable network has ordered up eight more episodes of "Hardcore Pawn: Chicago," extending the series' freshman season to a total of 17 episodes so far.

An off-shoot of the original "Hardcore Pawn" filmed in Detroit, the Chicago version takes place in Randy and Wayne Cohen's Royal Pawn Shop, one of the biggest and oldest pawn shops in the city.

"Hardcore Pawn: Chicago's" Jan. 1 debut gleaned more than 2.1 million viewers, making it the male-skewing cable net's biggest series launch ever. The show has continued to average 2.1 million viewers, including 1 million in the advertiser-coveted 18- to 49-year-old demographic.
