Rickey Smiley’s TV One Docu-Series Renewed for Season 2!


Following its first season as the¬†#2 Program on Cable¬†in its time slot among Black P25-54 and reaching 8.2 million Unique P2+ Viewers,¬†TV One¬†announced today a second season renewal of¬†Rickey Smiley For Real.¬†¬†Featuring nationally syndicated radio personality, host and stand-up comedian¬†Rickey Smiley, the hour-long series takes a humorous look at his life as he manages his career, single fatherhood and personal life. The second season, which finds¬†Smiley¬†concentrating more on the three F’s – Fun, Family, and Focus – is slated to premiere¬†Tuesday, May 10¬†at¬†8 p.m. ET.


Rickey’s unmatched sense of humor, business savvy and passion for his family resonated well with our audience, said¬†TV One President Brad Siegel.¬†We are thrilled to team up with Rickey and both his real family and radio show family for another season of real life turmoil and love.¬†


A voyeuristic view into what makes Smiley¬†a successful media mogul in radio, comedy and television,¬†TV One’s¬†Rickey Smiley For Real,¬†captures the syndicated host as he juggles two families – one at home and the other at work. In the second season,¬†Smiley¬†commits to enjoying the fruits of his labor.¬†¬†After many years struggling to balance the responsibilities of his large and unique family, along with growing and challenging himself in his career, he is determined to be more attuned to his own needs. Viewers will follow as¬†Smiley¬†steps back from his¬†Dish Nation¬†show, takes a trip to the Bahamas, tours with¬†Mike Epps,¬†collaborates with R&B icon¬†Kelly Price¬†and celebrates his 15th college fraternity anniversary.¬†

Throughout the second season,¬†Smiley¬†will also do his best to keep his kids on the right track. He is concerned with how his success may be affecting his family, particularly the boys.¬†Brandon, Malik¬†and¬†Craig¬†each challenge¬†Smiley¬†as they attempt to find themselves, landing in a variety of behavioral, disciplinary and legal issues. And as always, he keeps a close eye on daughters¬†D’Essence¬†and¬†Aaryn¬†as they face their own growing pains.¬†


Season two of¬†Rickey Smiley For Real¬†is already showing signs of being even bigger and better than our stupendous season one, said¬†Smiley. I am hugely thankful to the viewers for their support and excited about¬†TV One’s¬†dedication to bringing a quality second season to our viewers. Thank you all for allowing my family inside your homes every Tuesday night!
