MTV Gives Rob Dyrdek's 'Ridiculousness' a Second Season

Looks like MTV loves Rob Dyrdek's 'Ridiculousness' just as much as teenage boys do.

The network has renewed the funny viral video series for a second season. 'Ridiculousness' joins 'Awkward' and 'Teen Wolf' as a breakout hit for the network.

'Ridiculousness' averages 1.9 million viewers per week, a 1.8 rating in the network's target 12-34 demographic and is the network's second-highest rated show on the men 12-34 demographic, behind 'Jersey Shore.' The amateur viral video show also ranks second across all television in the 12-34 demo in its Monday night 10PM time slot.

"Our audience loves 'Ridiculousness,' and we're thrilled that Rob will be bringing another hilarious season of the show to our viewers," said MTV head of programming David Janollari on Monday in a statement. "He is a powerhouse talent with a long history with MTV, and his brand of comedy, from 'Ridiculousness' to 'Fantasy Factory,' is a perfect fit on our network."

Dyrdek's own ridiculous brand of comedy has done well for MTV, which has recently made a push into more original scripted series, with new shows like 'Death Valley' and the return of 'Beavis and Butthead.'

I don't like how Tosh has snark, hilarity, and originality. So I watch this.
