Oxygen shows breathe easy

By DENISE MARTIN

Women's network Oxygen has given second-season greenlights to its top-rated original shows "Campus Ladies" and "Mo'Nique's Fat Chance."

Renewal for "Campus Ladies" comes after just five episodes have aired. While ratings are slightly above par for Oxygen -- one-hour premiere averaged 343,000 viewers -- network chair-CEO Geraldine Laybourne told Daily Variety that the positive reviews for the half-hour prompted her to lock up a second season.

"The show has unknown stars, but the critics have liked it. I think it will take the show a bit longer to get to hit status," Laybourne said. "It's really like Ethel and Lucy gone wild."

"Campus" is a sort of "Ab Fab" take on a pair of middle-aged housewives attending university among college-age co-eds. Cheryl Hines ("Curb Your Enthusiasm"), Paul Young, Peter Principato, Carrie Aizley and Christen Sussin exec produce.

Laybourne noted that the recent boost in carriage -- Oxygen picked up 12 million subs from EchoStar in the last month -- gave execs an unexpected wave of additional revenue, which expedited the renewal process.

Cabler said 10 new episodes will bow this fall.
