U.S. networks Lifetime and OWN have ordered second seasons of Dance Moms (pictured) and Extreme Clutter, while Canada’s History Television is renewing Pawnathon Canada for a second season.

Collins Avenue’s Dance Moms returns to Lifetime featuring dance instructor Abby Lee Miller, alongside her students and their mothers at the Abby Lee Dance Company in Pittsburgh. The camera catches the highs and lows of the dance competition season.

Jeff Collins, Bryan Stinson and John R. Corella serve as executive producers, along with Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Kimberly Chessler of Lifetime.

Over on Discovery Communications’ OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, Enough Already! with Peter Walsh is returning to the net with a new title, Extreme Clutter. The second season premiere airs on January 1, followed by a new episode the next night at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

In the second season, host and organization expert Peter Walsh looks at specific themes associated with disorganization including sale shopping temptations, broken relationships clutter, and how to move forward and let go of items after the loss of a loved one.

The second episode of season two sees Walsh visiting the home of actress Mackenzie Phillips, to tackle the clutter from years of substance abuse and emotional family upheaval.

Extreme Clutter is executive produced by Jeff Kuntz and Peter Walsh, in association with Discovery Studios.

Meanwhile, in Canada, Suddenly SeeMore… Productions is producing Pawnathon Canada for a second season for History Television Canada. The network has increased its episode order from four to eight.

Pawnathon Canada is a multi-day event in which the public has the opportunity to get a free session with appraisers. The good stuff is sent to the “Pawn Masters” standing by with cash in hand, who battle to outbid each other for historical items. Pawnathon Canada is set to air on History Television in the summer of 2012.

Morgan Elliott, president of Suddenly SeeMore… Productions will once again produce the series in association with History Television. Jonathan Dueck is returning as show-runner. Pre-production begins in November with filming to take place in Toronto in March 2012.

Also in Canada, the W Network has ordered a second season for All for Nothing? from Mountain Road Productions. The real estate and renovation series premieres on January 3 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

In each episode, two households compete against each other to renovate their homes on a budget of zero, and the seller with the highest increase in value at the end of two weeks wins the commission-free listing services of real estate agent Paul Rushforth.
