Rita Rocks Renewed

Lifetime's "Rita Rocks" will roll on to a second season.  The cable channel has placed a 20-episode order for the series, which stars Nicole Sullivan as a mom who also fronts a rock band.

Lifetime's first original comedy in 10 years, the Media Rights Capital-produced "Rita" premiered in October to an audience of 1 million total viewers, nearly 800,000 of them women 18-49 -- up 11% uptick in that key demo compared with how the time period was performing for the channel in the month prior.
