TV One orders 26 episodes for second season of The Rickey Smiley Show

(March 19, 2013) TV One has announced a second season pick-up of its original hit sitcom The Rickey Smiley Show. The second season of The Rickey Smiley Show is scheduled to begin production in April with a 26-episode order and is slated to premiere in the summer of 2013.

"We couldn't be more pleased with the positive reaction to The Rickey Smiley Show," remarked Alfred Liggins, President and CEO, TV One. "The show's humor and comedic performances have made it a weekly must watch and we're thrilled to offer it as part of a dynamic slate of original programming that is clearly resonating with audiences."

"I can't even tell you how excited I am about the show's upcoming second season. It's going to be like nothing seen before," commented Rickey Smiley.  "We have so many wild plans for guests, characters, and new, crazy stories. Trust me, you have to see it. We are taking things to another level of funny.  Everything will be more!"

The September 2012 premiere of The Rickey Smiley Show, which catapulted TV One to a network ratings high, garnered a 1.08 HH rating, delivering 621,000 homes and among P25-54, earned a .75 rating, delivering 468,000 viewers. The second original episode airing at 9:30pm improved on the premiere, garnering a 1.12 HH rating, delivering 642,000 homes and among 25-54, earned a .83 rating with a delivery of 515,000 viewers. Over the four telecasts of the premieres and encores, The Rickey Smiley Show had a P2+ gross average audience of nearly 2.3 million viewers.

The Rickey Smiley Show stars comedian and nationally syndicated radio personality Rickey Smiley. In the series loosely based on his life, Smiley plays a popular national radio personality who is a single father trying to balance his family life -- including his ex-wife -- and career in the spotlight.

Rickey Smiley can be seen on various platforms, including his radio show, The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, his television shows, The Rickey Smiley Show and Dish Nation, and throughout the U.S. as he performs his stand-up comedy shows.
