Spike TV Boss on Plans for 'Lip Sync Battle' & Luring More Female Viewers

For much of the past year, Sharon Levy, 45, has been leading a radical reinvention of Spike TV. She has overseen scripted and nonscripted development at the Viacom-owned channel since joining Spike in 2005. But her greatest mission has been to transform the formerly bro-focused property to a more female-friendly lineup. That's meant moving away from male-leaning shows (think Cops reruns) to capture a more diverse audience with original shows like Lip Sync Battle and scripted miniseries like Tut.
