*MTV2 has renewed “Charlamagne and Friends” for a second season.
Hosted by “Guy Code” and “Guy Court’s” Charlamagne the God, the series welcomes a rotating door of artists, athletes and comedians as they give their opinions on music and pop culture stories.
The new season will debut Sunday, Jan. 15 at 11:30 p.m. PST/EST.
The first season of “Charlamagne and Friends” aired on the cable network as a week-long preview for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards in August.
Additionally, MTV2’s half-hour series “Ain’t That America With Lil Duval,” previously renewed for a sophomore run in October, will return on Jan. 15 at 11 p.m. PST/EST. The series is the network’s highest-rated original series to date and averaging 800,000 total viewers for the first season.
“Is this real life? Duval and I went from doing online webisodes to having our own shows back to back on MTV2,” said Charlamagne in a statement. “God and the Whiteman really have a plan for us. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity and as always, I hope I don’t make MTV2 regret it!”
Other programs on the male-skewing MTV2 include “Nick Cannon’s Wild ‘N Out,” “Mac Miller and the Most Dope Family” and “Nitro Circus Live.”
