I have to hand it to Jenny McCarthy. For a while, it seemed like her career was pretty much over - sure, she would pop up occasionally, but at nowhere near the level of stardom that she once had. McCarthy reinvented herself as an author, and building off that, she has been able to give herself a second act.
VH1 has announced the premiere date for the new 'The Jenny McCarthy Show,' which show McCarthy hosting parties from her penthouse apartment, with appearances by her friends and other celebrities. Not a concept that I would assume had a lot of legs, but I am continually surprised by what people watch.
In addition to the McCarthy series, VH1 announced the third season premiere date for 'Mob Wives,' its popular unscripted series that stars Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano, Drita D'Avanzo, Carla Facciolo, Ramona Rizzo and "Big Ang". A new wife, Love Majewski, will join the women this season. The series returns Sunday, January 6 at 8 p.m.
Two other new series are coming our way as well, the matchmaking 'Making Mr. Right' and 'Black Ink Crew,' which is a docu-series about tattoos. Three single women will play expert matchmakers tricking 14 unsuspecting men in 'Making Mr. Right,' as the men think they are appearing on a show called 'Match Me if You Can.'
The unscripted entry will be paired at 9 p.m. with eight episodes of Making Mr. Right, which will see three single women pose as expert matchmakers to pull a ruse on 14 unsuspecting guys who think they've signed up for a show called Match Me if You Can.
The third season of docuseries Love & Hip Hop will launch Monday, Jan. 7 at 8 p.m. with a mostly new cast and a handful of familiar faces. The popular series will be followed at 9 p.m. with rookie entryBlack Ink Crew, which is set at a black-owned and -operated tattoo shop in the heart of Harlem and its celebrity clients including hip-hop stars.
Weekly pop culture rundown series Best Week Ever will return Friday, Jan. 18 at 10 p.m. and include a new cast of panelist/comedians and appearances from the past as each 30-minute episode celebrates the biggest news in entertainment. The series, which originally ran on the network from 2004-2009, will serve as a lead-in for the debut of The Jenny McCarthy Show at 10:30 p.m. The all-access series will feature McCarthy host parties from her high-rise penthouse apartment and feature appearances by celebrities and friends.
