Dynamic host and executive producer Dorothy Cascerceri is set to begin the second season of her lightning speed, high-energy talk show.

'Celebrity Corner', which will air in nearly eight million homes, premieres January 30 at 6:30 p.m EST on WVVH-TV in New York, at 7:30 p.m. EST on WMCN44 in Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware and on DorothyOnTv.com.

"We're starting season 2 on a really exciting note by having Renee Graziano, star of VH1's 'Mob Wives', in studio with her sister Jenn Graziano, who is the hit show's creator and executive producer.

“We'll be featuring Super Bowl party coverage. We have an Oscars special for viewers to look forward to and tons of viewer and audience giveaways!”, Cascerceri said.

Considering today's transforming and highly competitive TV world, how did this show gain a large and loyal audience during it's first season?

"First and foremost, we all work to produce solid, relevant and engaging content and we try to tailor our segments so that they speak to every viewer, not just to the married woman, or to the single girl. The minute people can't relate, they tune out.

“Secondly, I have been told many viewers' favorite part of the show is seeing me interview celebrities, because I do it in a way that separates me from other entertainment hosts. When I sit down with them, it's less about putting on a show to me and more about genuinely connecting with this other human being I'm talking with. Yes, I ask the hard questions. But, I do it with love.

“Lastly, viewers have said that I am more like the girl next door who they want to have a glass of wine with, rather than some snobby reporter. They appreciate my honesty and self-deprecating humor and the fact that I don't take celebrities, or myself, too seriously. And thank God they do, because I am my toughest critic,” Cascerceri said.

This entertainment, news and celebrity lifestyle expert has appeared in hundreds of television segments on shows including: 'The Today Show', 'The Wendy Williams Show', 'Chelsea Lately' and 'Joy Behar: Say Anything'. Cascerceri, who earned her journalism degree at George Washington University, has also interviewed major Hollywood celebrities, including Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Brad Pitt during her career.
