‘Hip Hop Squares’ Renewed For Season 2
VH1 has renewed their hit game show, “Hip Hop Squares” for a second season.
The show, which is executive produced by Ice Cube (Cube Vision) and Jesse Collins Entertainment, Scott St. John and Jeff Kwatinetz (The Firm), is a fresh spin on the classic game show “Hollywood Squares.”
With the laundry list of music stars, reality TV stars, actors and comedians…it’s no surprise “Hip Hop Squares” was an instant ratings winner.
Here’s more scoop via Deadline:
The renewal comes amid strong ratings for the series, which debuted to over 3.2 million viewers across premiere night plays. Hip Hop Squares is the No. 1 non-sports cable show in its time period with P18-34 and ranked as VH1’s highest-rated new series in a year, according to the network.
Based on the iconic Hollywood Squares, Hip Hop Squares, hosted by DeRay Davis, features some of the biggest names in hip hop, comedy and entertainment match wits and test their pop culture knowledge with the superstar squares.
Congrats to Cube and Jesse Collins.
“Hip Hop Squares” is a refreshing and fun switch up from all of the reality TV madness VH1 has been peddling for years. It can be ratchet at times, but it’s always hilarious.
