VH1 officially renews Flavor of Love

VH1 has officially renewed Flavor of Love for a second season. This isn’t surprising, considering the record-breaking first season ratings and the fact that casting already started. The show has been renewed for 10 episodes.

VH1 says they renewed the show because “Flavor Flav became more determined to find love,” after his first search failed. And the show’s executive producers “say” in a press release that “[a]fter spending so much time with Flavor Flav on ‘Surreal Life’ and ‘Flavor of Love,’ we shared his frustration at not having found love. Thankfully, the success of the first season and Flav’s popularity enables us to have a second chance at finding him the right woman.” And also to take advantage of the first season’s amazing ratings by charging more for ads and product placement, perhaps?

Production begins in May; there’s no word when the series might air.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
