Radio personality, host and stand-up comedian Rickey Smiley is returning to TV One with the premiere of his new reality show, Rickey Smiley For Real on Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 8 p.m. ET. See the network’s official release:
The hour-long series takes a humorous look at Smiley’s hectic life as he manages his career, single fatherhood and personal life. TV One’s Rickey Smiley For Real is a voyeuristic view into what makes Smiley a successful media mogul in radio, comedy and television, as well as captures the syndicated host as he juggles two families – one at home and the other at work.
Throughout the season, viewers get a sneak peek at Smiley’s most important role – fatherhood – as he keeps his head above water with an untraditional schedule and lifestyle. They will see Smiley in both relatable and un-relatable situations – cooking dinner, performing on stage, family outings, business meetings, raising his kids, celebrity dates and coaching co-workers – as well as get an insider’s look at his professional life on the road, in-studio and backstage. Splitting his time between Atlanta and Birmingham, as well as his struggle to find work-life balance while trying to maintain a love life will be a central focus of the series. As a notorious bachelor, viewers will see him get real about romance.
