VH1 Orders Season 2 of 'Candidly Nicole'

VH1 said it has ordered a second season of Nicole Richie reality series Candidly Nicole. The MTV Networks outlet said the show, an outgrowth of an AOL online series and produced by Telepictures and World of Wonder, will return in spring or summer of 2015.

Candidly Nicole has surpassed every goal that we set for the launch," Susan Levison, EVP of Original Programming and Production for VH1, said in a release. "The series increased viewers in its time period by 50% attracted thousands of new viewers to the channel and shared Nicole Richie's sharp wit and comedic flair for highlighting some of the absurdities of the real world." The Aug. 28 episode drew 276,000 viewers on a Live plus Same Day basis, but two episodes in July drew more than 500,000 viewers each in the Thursday 10 p.m. time slot, according to Nielsen. The series premiere on July 17 drew 551,000 total viewers.
