Oxygen’s “Preachers Of L.A,” the reality series Bishop T.D. Jakes slammed, calling it “junk,” is coming back for season 2, along with brand new editions.
On Monday, Jan. 27, the network officially announced casting for New York, Atlanta, Dallas and Detroit. Will the allure of fame and notoriety draw in other big name pastors?
According to Oxygen, Noel Jones, Deitrick Haddon, Clarence McClendon, Jay Haizlip, Wayne Chaney and Ron Gibson had some serious drawing power.
“Preachers of L.A.” became the most watched freshman series in network history among the 25-54 demographic, averaging over one million total viewers.
Even though the feedback was overwhelmingly negative, it averaged more full-episode streams in season than any other Oxygen original series and was the #10 most social cable reality program in October and November. Looks like the faith-based docu-series had a car wreck effect on viewers: it was so horrible, it was hard to look away.
The heavy focus on bling and prosperity was a turnoff for those inside and outside the Christian community. Despite all the backlash, however, the preachers are willing to go for another round. Perhaps the gains of money and exposure, in their minds, outweigh the losses, even if the biggest loss is their credibility.
