Suffering car dealerships get reality TV show – Sep. 27, 2011

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — It’s been a rough few years for auto dealers. Hundreds have had to close over the last couple of years and the those that survive face a still-tough economy and even tougher customers.

But a new reality TV series aims to help a few struggling dealerships turn their businesses around.

Spike TV‘s new series, with the working title Car Lot Cowboy, will feature auto sales consultant Tom Stuker as he works to turn failing dealerships into profitable businesses in just five days.

Stuker’s expertise is primarily in sales but since there’s a lot more to running a profitable dealership than just selling cars — like parts and service, for instance — he will bring along a team of experts in various aspects of the business.

Outside the auto industry, Stuker is most famous as the first man to earn 10 million United Airlines frequent flyer miles. He has worked with over 1,500 auto dealerships, the network said.
