The unlikely cookery-based chat show pairing Martha Stewart with Snoop Dogg has been a hit for the US cable network.
VH1 has ordered a second season of Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party after just two episodes.
The unlikely cookery-based chat show pairing Martha Stewart with Snoop Dogg premiered on November 7. Both episode one and episode two, which followed on November 14, earned strong ratings for the US cable network, prompting a swift renewal.
“Martha and Snoop are the modern day ‘Odd Couple’ and the reigning King and Queen of pop culture. Wait until you see what happens in season two,” the network’s president Chris McCarthy said today (November 21) a few hours before episode three aired.
VH1 recently made episode one available to watch in full online. During the course of the episode, guests Seth Rogen, Ice Cube and Wiz Khalifa had to judge which of the show’s hosts made the best fried chicken.
“I don’t know who’s going to be more fried by the end of the show,” Stewart said at the start of the episode, referencing Snoop Dogg’s fondness for a treat greener than chicken.

During the episode, Stewart also revealed that she has been struck by lightning three times during her life. “Going to jail does not make you stronger,” she said, nodding to her five-month prison stint in 2004-5. “Only lightning makes you stronger.”
Special guests set to appear during the rest of the series include Rick Ross, Jamie Chung, 2 Chainz, Naya Rivera, Ashley Graham, Jason Derulo, 50 Cent, Fat Joe, Kathy Griffin, Kelis, Ashlee Simpson & Evan Ross, Keke Palmer and Robin Thicke.
