The Soul Man: Cedric the Entertainer Wants Help Saving His Show

Soul Man season two?Cedric the Entertainer is asking fans of The Soul Man, his TV Land sitcom, to help get the TV show renewed for a second season. In an open letter, the actor requested that viewers send a note to TV Land and provided a sample of what that letter could look like.

Soul Man premiered in late June to a very healthy 1.9 million viewers with a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Those are solid number sfor the small cable channel but they didn’t last. The second episode frell to 1.2 million and a 0.3 rating. The third dropped again, to 807,000 viewers.

The sitcom wasn’t TV Land’s worst performer — Retired at 35 holds that distinction — but it certainly wasn’t a hit either. TV Land hasn’t cancelled any of their original sitcoms yet and it didn’t seem likely that The Soul Man would be their first but perhaps Cedric knows something we don’t.

Here’s Cedric’s plea for help:

Ladies and Gentlemen I need your help… if you liked my show on TV Land, The Soul Man, then please take part in my letter writing campaign to bring it back for a second season . Just use the following letter and email it on… we want to make the biggest impact so if you have a moment please email. Thank you, I’ll Holla

    Please leave the Soul Man on Tv land. I look forward 2 watching & recording the show. I like the whole cast of the sitcom. Cedric is very funny. The dad on the show reminds me of my own dad. The show really makes my day. They are just getting started. Tv Land please let the show grow :)


    The Soul Man is refreshing and entertaining! With a bit of time and more exposure I believe this show will prove a lasting winner! The cast is a great blend of actors and is the “AMEN” of the modern day! Please keep this show going!

    Please renew The Soul Man for more seasons. My husband and I enjoy the show so much! Cedric and Neicy make a great couple. Humor is more in need with new shows than so much violence and reality boring shows being shown lately. This show is refreshing and helps wind down a tough day.

    One of the BEST sitcom that i have seen in a long time. Mr. Cedric is one of the best actor on tv. The Soulman do make you think about thing that happen at church.Thing a Pastor and wife go through, as well as the family.People are going to complain no matter what we do or say. Keep the Soulman on looking foward for the second season.
