E! Confirms “Total Divas” for Season 2, “Eric & Jessie” Renewed

What WWE had already made clear to wrestling fans has now been made official within the television community: “Total Divas” is coming back for a second season.

Never in much question, the renewal became a certainty when last week’s episode improved its ratings despite losing its “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” lead-in.

Though the series, which follows the lives of seven WWE Divas and their relationships inside and outside the wrestling business, it has been convincingly outdrawing much of the network’s non-Kardashians fare.

E! also announced a second season for “Eric & Jessie: Game On,” which focuses on NFL receiver Eric Decker and his singer wife Jessie James. Not a dominant ratings performer, “Game On” nonetheless attracted acceptable numbers in women 18-34 and adults 18-34.

The cable network also issued a second season to talk show “Hello Ross.”

“We are excited to bring back this diverse trio of successful series for second seasons,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Programming & Development, E! “Each of these series feature compelling personalities that offer unique stories and points of view from the world of pop culture. It’s exciting to have this strong line-up of returning series in addition to our other popular core franchises to help propel us into 2014.”
