Lip Sync Battle Renewed for Season 2

Lip Sync Battle Renewed

Lip Sync Battle is going for Round 2: Spike TV has renewed its star-studded competition series for a 20-episode second season, it was announced Wednesday.

Adapted from Jimmy Fallon’s recurring Tonight Show game, Lip Sync Battle pits A-list celebrities against each other as they mouth the lyrics to famous songs. Its April 2 series premiere drew 2.2 million total viewers, giving Spike its largest audience ever for an unscripted series debut.

Lip Sync Battle is a television and viral rock star for Spike,” network president Kevin Kay said in a statement. “We are thrilled to be renewing Lip Sync Battle whose success is a direct result of the brilliance and creativity of our producers, the brave performers, and of course the coolest new duo on television, LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen.”

Season 2 of Lip Sync Battle will debut in 2016. Below, check out the memorable “sing”-off between Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt. (You’ll never hear “Wrecking Ball” the same way again.)

    NBC was so stupid to pass on this show.

    Then again, I expect nothing less from NBC.

      They had already passed by the time Jimmy Fallon’s clips really started going viral on youtube. It seems so obvious now, though. How could a show like this NOT be amazing?

    Wonder if Beth Behrs of 2 Broke Girls should be on that show because she’s a talented singer in real life.

  3. Wordsmith says:

    It would be nice if they took some time over the hiatus to figure out how to use Chrissy Teigen. I find that her presence actively detracts from my enjoyment most of the time she appears on screen. She pulls focus rather than playing up what is happening on stage.

    I watched an episode of this just because. I was hooked after the first show. This is funnier than a lot of so called comedies on air today and it has become one of my favorites. Right up there with Who’s Line.

    I was surprised by how much I love this show though I really can’t stand Chrissy Teigen and they need to work on their editing.. Very obvious edits. But overlooking that they’re getting great stars who just let it all hang out. I laugh every single episode! Glad we’re getting more!
