Philly's Kevin Hart is having a good week.

Coming off a stint as guest host on NBC's "Saturday Night Live," the comedian Friday had his BET mockumentary series, "Real Husbands of Hollywood," picked up for a second, 12-episode season.

Besides Hart, who's divorced both in real life and on the show, which he produces, the "Husbands" include Nick Cannon, married to  Mariah Carey, Boris Kodjoe, husband of Nicole Ari Parker, Duane Martin, husband of Tisha Campbell-Martin, J.B. Smoove, husband of Shahidah Omar and Robin Thicke, husband of actress Paula Patton.

One of Hart's running gags on the show is that all of these women secretly have crushes on him, though Carey, when I mentioned the show to her after an "American Idol" press conference in January, shortly before "Husbands" premiered, summoned up an eye-roll of epic proportions.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
