It looks like Cedric the Entertainer has a hit on his hands!
Comedian and actor Cedric the Entertainer tweeted earlier in the week that he’d gotten word that his TV Land sitcom, The Soul Man, had been picked up for season two. The show debuted in June with a high debut at 1.9 million viewers. It has continued to maintain a fairly steady following.
The Soul Man is a spin-off of TV Land’s other hit show, Hot in Cleveland in which Cedric appeared on one episode in 2011; that served as a set up for his own show. The Soul Man follows the life of Rev. Boyce Ballantine, a former R&B singer, who received his calling to serve the Lord. He put down his lavish Las Vegas ways and moved his family to St. Louis in order to take over his father’s church. His wife Lolli (played by Niecy Nash), was taken aback by the entire move and because of that, she’s only slowly evolving into a “true” First Lady of a church. Her clothes are still low cut up at the top and short at the bottom and her mouth continues to get her in trouble but Boyce loves her all the same.
The Soul Man is currently on hiatus until the new season starts but reruns are airing on BET. Congrats to Cedric and the entire cast!
