THE “PATRIARCH OF PERFECTION” IS BACK!
USA NETWORK SETS OCTOBER 14th PREMIERE FOR SEASON TWO OF
“CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST”
Breakout Half-Hour Comedic Reality Series to Return on Tuesdays@ 10/9c
NEW YORK – AUGUST 12, 2014 – USA Network announced today that season two of its breakout reality series CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST will premiere with two back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, October 14that 10pm/9c. The real-life family comedy follows the entertaining lives of Atlanta-based outspoken and overprotective, but very loving husband and father, Todd Chrisley and his colorful clan, including his lovely wife Julie, and their charming, yet scheming expansive brood. The buzzy series struck a cultural chord with a large and loyal fan base, and earned its place as the network’s youngest original series to date with a median age of 35.
CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST is currently in production on a 12-episode second season in Atlanta, GA. This season promises even more comedic moments, and not-to-be-missed extreme parenting lessons. Viewers will join the Chrisleys for many milestones and family adventures, including their move into a brand new home, teenage daughter Savannah’s first date without her watchful dad (or so she thinks!), Chase’s much-anticipated 18th birthday, and a memorable Father’s Day which does not exactly go Todd’s way!
For fans who just can’t get enough of the Chrisleys, or those who want to check out what everyone’s talking about, USA celebrates Labor Day weekend with the family during a season one CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST marathon on USA Network on Saturday, August 30 from 7pm/6c –11pm/10c.
Season one was filled with laugh-out-loud moments and Todd’s signature one-liners, where in Todd’s words, “crazy runs deep!” Highlights included Todd cringing over his teenage daughter’s questionable wardrobe choices, a heated competition between Todd and his not-so-favorite son-in-law at a shooting range (where Todd showed up in a full army attire), Chase being punished with a boot on his car (courtesy of dear dad!), and Todd presenting his oldest daughter with a boob cake before her breast augmentation surgery. But despite their crazy moments and Todd’s over-the-top behavior, he has the best intentions at heart and at their core, the Chrisleys are a fun, close-knit, loving family.
In its first season, CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST captured a loyal following, averaging 945,000 P18-49, 880,000 P25-54, 552,000 P18-34, and 1.7 million total viewers P2+.
The entire first season of CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST is currently available on video on demand and USANetwork.com. Fans can also access “Chrisley’s Corner” on USANetwork.com, a one-stop digital destination to gain access to exclusive un-aired scenes from season one.
