NEW YORK, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- TV Land says it has picked up Joan Rivers' popular U.S. reality series "How'd You Get So Rich?" for a second season.

New episodes are to start airing May 5.

"It's so exciting for us to work with our friend, the incomparable Joan Rivers, and bring 'How'd You Get So Rich?' back to TV Land," Larry W. Jones, the network's president, said in a statement. "Viewers were very inspired last season by the stories of these millionaires who went from rags to riches -- some of whom were mowing lawns and are now collecting Bentleys! It is truly the American Dream, proving anyone can do it, and there is no one other than Joan who can do a better job of finding out how in the world these people got that rich."

"I'm thrilled to be back on 'How'd You Get So Rich?,'" Rivers said. "It's so much better than hosting 'How'd You Get So Poor?'... and when I say 'rich,' I mean rich. People that Oprah will borrow money from. People that will use Dr. Ruth as a paperweight and people that when their computer breaks Bill Gates comes by to fix it."
