Comedy Central has issued a quick renewal for their freshman comedy The Sarah Silverman Program.
The network has ordered 14 episodes of the second season, which will premiere in the fall of this year.
“We couldn’t be happier with the success of ‘The Sarah Silverman Program,'” says Lauren Corrao, Comedy Central’s executive vice president for original programming and development. “The exceptional critical acclaim combined with the fantastic ratings has created a new Thursday night destination for our viewers. The show is smart, innovative, irreverent and politically incorrect — that, to me, is the purest example of a Comedy Central success.”
The series premiered on February 1 to the tune of 1.7 million viewers, making it the networks strongest debut for an original series since the premiere of the animated series Drawn Together (2.2 million viewers) in 2004.
