And just like that, another week has gone by!

Gold Rush returned last Friday with a vengeance; the fifth season premiere was the most watched cable program that night. And another fan-favorite show made a splash as Derick and Jill Duggar Dillard announced that they are having a baby boy. Congrats to them both!

Congratulations are also in order for one of our own, as Joe Abruzzese, President of Ad Sales, came in at #25 on the annual Adweek 50.

‘Gold Rush’ Returns to Discovery Channel Tomorrow

October 16, 2014 | by lstewart

The wait is almost over! The fifth season of Gold Rush premieres tomorrow, October 17th on Discovery Channel at 9PM ET/PT.

This season, the stakes are higher than ever. After braving the jungles of Guyana, South America, Todd Hoffman is back after losing his land, his crew and most of his money. Meanwhile, Parker Schnabel has set an outrageous goal for himself, looking to double the 1,000 ounces of gold that he brought in last season – worth 1.4 million dollars – to 2,000 ounces this time around. Tony Beets has his own challenges ahead, as he took a huge risk by purchasing a $1 million, 75-year-old floating gold dredge.

It’s a new season with new beginnings. Check out a sneak peek of the season premiere of Gold Rush below, and don’t miss tomorrow night’s premiere!
