VH1's "Mob Wives" to Debut Half-Hour Post-Show "Mob Wives: The Sit Down"

The Series Will Premiere On Sunday, January 29 At 9pm

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 25, 2012 -- With ratings as high as the on-set drama, VH1 today announced that its one-hour hit reality series "Mob Wives" will be immediately followed with a half-hour post-show titled "Mob Wives: The Sit Down," beginning Sunday, January 29 at 9pm ET/PT. The series will also be produced by TWC, Electus, Left/Right and JustJenn Productions who also produce "Mob Wives" and the upcoming "Mob Wives: Chicago."

Hosted by VH1's own Carrie Keagan (Big Morning Buzz Live), the post-show will feature 2-3 of the wives each week along with a special celebrity guest to discuss the episode immediately after it runs and to share some exclusive behind-the-scenes info. The series has an initial order for 7 post-show episodes.

Now in its second season on VH1, "Mob Wives" (Sundays, 8:00 p.m. ET/PT) gives viewers an unfiltered look into the private worlds of six struggling "allegedly" associated women - Renee, Karen, Carla and Drita, along with new season 2 cast members Ramona and "Big Ang" - all of whom must pick up the pieces while their husbands or fathers do time for Mob-related activities. United by a bond which few understand, the women are all struggling with their identities and their futures as they raise their kids as single parents in the New York City area.

Season two premiere episodes have averaged a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demo, up +63% from season one's average. The premiere episodes have also averaged 2.2 million total viewers, up +67% from season one. "Mob Wives" has also consistently won its time period, making VH1 the #1 non-sports cable network among adults 18-49 all three weeks of its current season in the time slot. This spring the network will debut a spin-off, "Mob Wives: Chicago," where the hometown of Al Capone will serve as the backdrop for a new group of syndicate sisters.

Carrie Keagan is the host of VH1's entertainment show "Big Morning Buzz Live." She boasts well over 7,000 interviews to her credit with "Big Morning Buzz Live" and her own No Good TV, including an impressive list of exclusive and uncensored sit-downs with some of the biggest celebrities and public figures of our time. Keagan produced and hosted 2 seasons of VH1 Classic's "One Hit Wonders" and has co-hosted the live red carpet preshow for the Critics' Choice Awards and co-hosted The Daily 10 (E!) along with live Emmy, Oscar and Golden Globe red carpet coverage.

VH1's Co-Star app will also be an element of the show. Carrie will read fan tweets from Co-Star and additional fan tweets will be featured in the lower third graphics. Users can ask questions all week long using #TheSitDown for their chance to have their question read on the show.
