About the show
Rickey Smiley For Real is a TV One reality show about the personal and professional life of Rickey Smiley. The series was produced by Bobbcat films, where Rickey Smiley and Roger M. Bobb are executive producers, and Angi Bones serves as a co-executive producer. It has originally premiered on November 10, 2015, while the most recent third season was released on November 15, 2016.
Rickey Smiley is a comedian and a syndicated radio talk show host – that`s what everybody knows about him. But he`s also a single father to four children of his own and practically a father to his nephew. Besides, he is a notorious bachelor and an entrepreneur splitting his time between his home in Birmingham, Alabama and Atlanta, Georgia, where he resides during the week. The biggest challenge Rickey faces is trying to harmonize his family, business and love life. There`s also the recently launched Rickey Smiley Foundation seeking to “impact the lives of children, teens and seniors”, which will be presented in the series. In the second season Smiley leads a more laid-back lifestyle, traveling to the Bahamas, taking a break from his Dish Nation show, keeping a close watch over his kids, touring and working on a collaborative project.

The fan-favorite reality series has posted a significant increase in viewership in season two as well , especially in the black demos, reaching 3 million total unique viewers in P2+.The current season premiered to 0.26 million viewers, which is completely on par with the previous installments. The social media response to the show has also been very favorable and supportive, so there`s a good chance that there might be a continuation of the Rickey Smiley For Real.
