    No Ben Show?

  • Kyle R

    Yes! Great news! Nathan For You is one of the funniest shows I’ve ever seen. They must really like it too, considering it was their lowest rated original show.

  • Dan

    So far 3 for 3, who knows about The Ben Show.

  • Dave G.

    If they put season one of Nathan for You on Netflix, the audience for it would definitely grow.

  • Jake B

    Any news on The Burn with Jeff Ross?

  • Dan

    @Jake B – No but I cant imagine Comedy Central wont bring it back. They seem to have a good relationship with Jeff Ross, Anthony Jesilnik, and Amy Schumer.

    Comedy Central has an unusually large amount of series this year.

  • Brandon

    I screamed so loud when I saw this, this is seriously a miracle. Nathan For You had horrible ratings but it is my favorite show.. like ever. I am so happy right now.

  • Lucas

    YEEEEESSS!!! So happy for Nathon For You. Its the funniest show to hit comedy central in years. Was worried about it due to its low ratings, so this news made my day. If comedy central gives the show the promotion it deserves season 2 will surely grow in viewers.

    Nathan For You is one of those rare shows that will make you pee from laughter, it’s that good.

  • Azzman

    Way to go Jeselnik!! Just when you thought you couldn’t take anymore panel,…there’s more panel!

  • JR

    I love both shows but I’m a bit surprised they didn’t renew The Ben Show since it got slightly higher ratings than Nathan For You.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    Jeff Ross, Amy Schuemer, and Anthony Jeselnik all got shows. It seems Comedy Central is just trying using people from the Roast of Charlie Sheen. And half the stand up acts are also Daily Show correspondents.
