Bill Engvall goes for three

All you Bill Engvall fans out there (don't be shy), pay attention. Basic-cable network USA shares your love for the Blue Collar Comedy member, and has ordered a third season of his half-hour comedy, cleverly titled The Bill Engvall Show.

USA has requested 10 more episodes of The Bill Engvall Show, which just wrapped up its second season. Over the course of its run, Bill Engvall has averaged 2.3 million viewers and won its time slot among 18-49-year-olds among ad-supported cable networks, according to TBS.

"There's something about this cast and this show that gives you a good feeling inside, which is probably why it's won the hearts of so many viewers," said TBS vice president Michael Wright.

The Bill Engvall Show is a family-oriented sitcom, along the lines of other patriarchal programs like The Cosby Show. Engvall plays a Denver-based family counselor who--surprise!--struggles with understanding his only family. Nancy Travis and Tim Meadows also star.

TBS is also planning a pair of holiday-themed episodes of The Bill Engvall Show for air in December.

Its a good solid family show. Much like the situation comedies of the 70's and 80's. I'm glad to see its coming back for season 3.

I think Bill's standup is hilarious. But I've never seen his show. I'll have to check it out.

I like this show, not great but without too many other traditional sitcoms on anymore this does the job, I mean I don't understand why people diss shows like caveman, carpoolers, according to jim etc, I realize they are not the next AD's or seinfeld's, but they make me chuckle, And that is all I ask for. So Thank You USA.

USA is affiliated with TBS - it owns it.

I have seen this show and it is dull and predictable! It's terribly unfunny!

Not a huge Engvall fan, but good for him that his show is successful.

I don't understand, why does it say 'Usa shares your love...' and 'USA has requested...' this is a TBS show right? What's USA got to do with it?
