Despite a sharp decline in ratings after the season one premiere, producers at TV One have decided to bring The Rickey Smiley Show back for another run.
Instead of showing Smiley as a family man, the show will now be focusing on Smiley’s different characters. Some of the characters he’ll be playing include Pastor Watkins, Clarence the Janitor, Lil Darryl and Joe Willie. According to Smiley, the chemistry on the show is better and his motto for the year is only to shoot funny material.
The 26-episode season will begin July 26.
