Bravo finds 'Poker' face
Foley dealt presenter's hand
By DENISE MARTIN
Bravo has tapped Dave Foley to host the second super-sized season of "Celebrity Poker Showdown."
Twelve-episode season will feature two tournaments in expanded two-hour episodes slated to bow this spring.
Last year, "Showdown" achieved ratings highs for Bravo, with the finale delivering more than 1 million viewers in its key 25-54 demo.
"We are extremely pleased to have Dave Foley as the host of one of our most popular series," Bravo topper Jeff Gaspin said. "Foley is a tremendous comedic talent who I am certain will do a wonderful job calling the action this season."
"I wanted to be on 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,' but apparently I did not meet the requirements for either category," Foley said.
Series is produced by Picture This Television in association with Bravo. Exec producers are Marcia Mule, Bryan Scott, Andrew Hill Newman and Joshua Malina. Frances Berwick, Amy Introcaso-Davis and Shari Levine oversee for Bravo. Phil Gordon will continue to provide commentary.
Dave will be shooting an entire season of Celebrity Poker Showdown (you know, airs on Bravo) at the end of this month in Vegas!! Air dates TBA, probably sometime later this year. He'll be promoting it in NY next month, so stay tuned for those appearances!
