NEW YORK, Aug. 13 -- VH1 continues to keep summer sizzlin' with the debut of two new original series "Glam God with Vivica A. Fox" and "The Cho Show," premiering Thursday, August 21. The return of VH1's long-running popular series "The Fabulous Life," heads up the new Thursday night lineup.

"THE FABULOUS LIFE" -- PREMIERES THURSDAY, AUGUST 21 AT 9PM ET/PT

This latest season of The Fabulous Life is spotlighting the hottest trends and names out there -- from Million Dollar Babies, a look at Hollywood's lavish baby boom, to The Nerdiest Nerds, the tale of how the meek have come to inherit the earth. Each of the eight new episodes will uncover the stories and numbers behind the biggest purchases, people, and events. The 8-episode run will also include such titles as The Fabulous Life of Red Carpet Excess, The Fabulous Life of Super Spoiled Stage Moms and The Fabulous Life Of Posh Pop Stars. Along with Fab Life favorites like Oprah, Jennifer Lopez, and the Beckhams, this season introduces a whole new class of super spenders: Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Ne-Yo, LeBron James, Chris Brown, and Daniel Radcliffe.

A snarky blend of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and the Forbes 400 List, each episode combines expert interviews, investigative field segments, and voyeuristic footage with signature lively graphics, giving you a glimpse into The Fabulous Life as you've never seen it before.

"GLAM GOD WITH VIVICA A. FOX" PREMIERING AT 10 PM ET/PT

Vivica A. Fox, actress, producer and fashion luminary, is bringing her celebrity style to VH1 for a new competition show ripped from the pages of the fashion magazines. The new series, "Glam God With Vivica A. Fox" premiering on Thursday, August 21 at 10:00 PM*, searches for the next great celebrity stylist who has what it takes to become the stylist to the stars through their ability to create a chic masterpiece using the three key elements of fashion -- hair, make-up and wardrobe.

Joining Vivica on the judges' panel will be 'stylist to the stars' Phillip Bloch and Us Weekly's, Melanie Bromley. Phillip is Hollywood's go-to stylist whose clients have included Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman, John Travolta, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey. His work has also graced the covers of In Style, Vogue, Vanity Fair and Entertainment Weekly. Sitting next to him will be Us Weekly's West Coast Bureau Chief, Melanie Bromley. London-born Melanie started the magazine's European bureau before relocating to California where she heads up the L.A. office and oversees all things relating to celebrities, beauty and fashion.

Each week the "stylista" contestants will be asked to compete in various challenges that will test their knowledge of fashion and style trends as they create the perfect look from head to toe. The stylists must be well versed in all areas of fashion and beauty as they bring their vision to life through hair, make-up and wardrobe. Those that fall short of creating that perfect look will have their style license revoked and will be sent packing. The one stylist that manages to rise above the rest will be given the ultimate reward -- the chance to launch a career by styling a celebrity and being awarded $100,000.

Throughout each episode viewers will also learn the secret tips of looking fabulous on the red carpet.

"THE CHO SHOW" PREMIERING AT 11 PM ET/PT

Margaret Cho burst onto the scene in 1994 with her sitcom "All American Girl" and her struggles with the network over that show are legendary. Thirteen years after her catastrophic foray into television, Margaret Cho is triumphantly returning to television in a new half-hour VH1 series "The Cho Show." And this time, it's on her own terms.

Premiering Thursday, August 21 at 11:00 PM*, "The Cho Show" will follow the irrepressible Margaret Cho and her eccentric entourage as she fights to be herself in an industry that in the past wanted her to be something different. "The Cho Show" blends Margaret's real life with some imaginative and comical situations that touch upon all aspects of Margaret's "anything goes" lifestyle. From the complicated and awkward moments with her somewhat traditional Korean parents, Mr. and Mrs. Cho, to the more irreverent and outrageous experiences shared with her colorful cast of friends and colleagues, "The Cho Show" invites viewers into Margaret's unique reality. The Cho family is joined by her no-nonsense assistant Selene Luna and her "Glam Squad": John Stapleton (make-up,) John Blaine (hair stylist,) and Charlie Altuna (wardrobe) who help her keep it together from head to toe. Viewers will get the opportunity to meet the people that provide her with plenty of material in her stand up routines and follow the journey of this pioneering comedian.

VH1.com will sneak peek the first episode of "The Cho show" beginning Friday, August 15 and will be the home to exclusive video content of all three series throughout the seasons.
