‘Chrisley Knows Best’ Becomes Breakout Reality TV: Can It Surpass ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’? [Video]

If you’re struggling for guidance in your life, just ask Todd Chrisley, one of the stars in the breakout reality TV show Chrisley Knows Best. USA Network will produce six more episodes, with Season 3 set for summer viewing, reported Deadline.

The show combines comedic events with semi-serious family catastrophes, making it a comedy-reality-drama that just might have the potential of becoming another Keeping Up With the Kardashians. But instead of “momager” Kris Jenner, it has “dadager” Todd, who is a multimillionaire based in Atlanta.

Others in the colorful clan include the five children (Chase, Kyle, Savannah, Lindsie, and Grayson) and two grandchildren, along with Todd’s patient wife, Julie. One of the grandchildren, two-year-old Chloe, lives with the family.

The newest episodes will show the family experiencing their first trip out of the United States. Royal alert: Their destination is London.

In 2014, Chrisley Knows Best scored in the Top 10 new unscripted shows on cable, maintaining those runaway ratings for all categories. The series is produced by Maverick TV and All3Media America.

Most of the action focuses on Todd’s efforts to rein in Chase and Savannah, whose exploits range from secret expensive expenditures at fancy restaurants to botched babysitting assignments, shown below.

How does all this compare to Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Kourtney and Khloé Take the Hamptons?

As the Inquisitr reported, the Kardashians’ reality TV shows also focus on drama within the family. In a recent episode, for example, Kourtney Kardashian was furious at her sister. She screamed at Khloé and Kim for carelessly drinking alcoholic beverages around Scott Disick, who chose to enter rehab after recognizing he was having a drinking problem.

But both shows also have their share of goofy moments. Todd Chrisley, for example, once ordered his daughter Savannah to stop driving after she drove the car into a ditch (she was unharmed).

He then told her she had an alternative riding option. Excited, she dashed outside… only to discover a pretty little bike complete with a pink helmet.

And Keeping Up With the Kardashians also has some unexpected humorous content, as shown below.

In addition, several of the cast members on both shows are devoted to using social media to share their slices of their life.

“Locked inside a bedroom at motel 6 blasting Madonna Erotica on repeat &rolling around in a Prada bodysuit at 2am” – Kim Kardashian

“I’ve gotta get on a diet…I’ve eaten cereal, 3 tacos, and chips & salsa today…oh and I’m now eating pizza and a salad…#ilovefood” – Savannah Chrisley

The third season of Chrisley will be broadcast in two parts, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The network hasn’t revealed any details yet of what will happen when they visit London.

“We’re excited to follow the Chrisley family on this great adventure,” said Jackie de Crinis, Executive VP of Original Programming at USA Network. “Todd is a creature of habit and prefers to be king of his own castle, so there is no telling what will happen when he travels outside of the USA for the first time ever.”
