TV Land renews Joan Rivers' How'd You Get So Rich'
TV Land has picked up a second season of the reality show "How'd You Get So Rich?" in which Joan Rivers travels the country asking wealthy people how they got so rich. Go figure.
The series will return to TV Land on Wednesday, May 5 at 10 p.m.
"It's so exciting for us to work with our friend, the incomparable Joan Rivers and bring 'How'd You Get So Rich?' back to TV Land," states Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. "Viewers were very inspired last season by the stories of these millionaires who went from rags to riches – some of whom were mowing lawns and are now collecting Bentleys! It is truly the American Dream, proving anyone can do it, and there is no one other than Joan who can do a better job of finding out how in the world these people got that rich!"
Adds Rivers, "I'm thrilled to be back on 'How'd You Get So Rich?.' It's so much better than hosting 'How'd You Get So Poor?'...and when I say 'Rich,' I mean RICH. People that Oprah will borrow money from. People that will use Dr. Ruth as a paperweight and people that when their computer breaks Bill Gates comes by to fix it."
