"The Soul Man," starring Cedric The Entertainer as a former R&B singer who decides to become a preacher, has been renewed by TV Land for a second season. Although the comedy was one of the cable network's high-profile shows, several months passed before TV Land decided to pick up another season. Another TV Land comedy, "The Exes," starring Donald Faison and Kristen Johnson, was picked up for a third season. Both series will return in June with 10 episodes each.
