“Ladies Night” Launches Season 2 of Poker Night in America, Debuting Tonight on CBS Sports
You don’t want to miss the debut of Season 2 of “Poker Night in America.”
With no more Monday Night Football, there’s no excuse not to tune in.
The first-ever ladies only cash game was filmed last month at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood/Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. An entire day of shooting produced nine thrilling hours of poker action, outrageous conversation (fortunately, some of which we can show), and plenty of laughs. Tonight’s program will be the first of what we hope will be multiple shows this season which are showcasing some of the top players in the world — who just so happen to be female.
Tonight’s show appears on CBS Sports in most television markets and begins at 10 pm (EST) which is 7 pm (PST). Two 30-minute episodes will run back to back. Click Channel 221 on Direct TV. The show will appear weekly in this same time slot, every Monday night.
“Ladies Night” marks yet another leap forward in diversifying poker on television. Throughout the first season, many newcomers who were relatively unknown players participated alongside some of the most famous pros in the game. “Poker Night in America’s” casting call gave more than two dozen players the chance to shine. Consistent with the goal of opening the game up to more people, the production team organized a No-Limit Hold’em cash game for ladies. Blinds were $25-50. The minimum buy-in was $5,000.
Participants included — Marsha Wolak, Reggie Duvdivani, Lauren Billings, Jaclynn Moskow, Jamie Kerstetter, Lily Kiletto, Nancy Birnbaum, Vanessa Selbst, Jessica Dawley, Natasha Barbour, Danielle Andersen and Eboney Kenney.
Look for “Poker Night in America” to continue doing things just a bit differently.
Up next, look for an announcement about our next filming location at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City (Jan. 16-19). We’ll also provide more information about the $1,000 buy-in tournament taking place that same weekend at the Golden Nugget, which is open to all players.
