Rob Dyrdek’s “Ridiculousness” Gets a 2nd Season… Why?

rob dyrdek ridiculousness season 2

Apparently people are watching “Ridiculousness” on MTV for some reason as MTV just announced that it has picked up the show for a 2nd season. The show is apparently 2nd highest in the ratings for men ages 12-34, second only to “Jersey Shore”. I’ll be honest, on the recommendation of Shane Nickerson, via Twitter, I gave the show a few more episodes after I bashed the season premiere and I just couldn’t get into it. It’s a blatant rip off of Tosh.O, which in itself is already a rip of of shows like Web Soup and The Soup, but at least Daniel Tosh is funny where as Rob is not, at least in this setting.

As I said in the original “Ridiculousness” post, I like Rob Dyrdek, he’s entertaining, but he’s not a stand up comedian and this show is not funny. I still can’t figure out why Steelo Brim and Chanel are there, it seems that more people are just annoyed with Chanel’s laugh than anything else. She’s a cute enough girl, but she’s seems a bit immature and a little annoying. I actually cringe whenever they show her on screen or I hear her laugh in the background. I think the show might be better if it was Rob, Big Black and Drama going back and forth about the videos, but either way I don’t think the show deserved a second season.

So for those of you that can’t get enough of Rob Dyrdek you have another season of “Ridiculousness” ahead of you and it’s all yours, I’ll stick to Fantasy Factory.
