After a successful season sending up shows like “Mob Wives,” “The Real Housewives,” “Toddlers and Tiaras,” and “Jersey Shore,” VH1 announced today that “Stevie TV” will return for a second season of pop culture parody at the hands of sketch comedy chameleon and series star Stevie Ryan. Each episode will again be packed with Stevie’s signature brand of quirk and comedy in fast-paced, irreverent sketches along with the mixed-up music videos, mashed-up movie trailers, dead-on celebrity impersonations and fake commercials that fans crave. The second season of “Stevie TV” is slated to premiere this fall on VH1.
