Comedy Central has ordered second seasons of The Jeselnik Offensive and Nathan for You, because both are good shows that make people laugh, fitting the Comedy Central brand. Each order is for a 10-episode second season.
The Jeselnik Offensive stars comedian Anthony Jeselnik in a talk-show format; dead babies, pedophile priests, and all races are targets of Jeselnik's "offensive" humor. In each episode, Jeselnik welcomes a pair of guests to talk about current events and make you cringe with blue humor. If you are sensitive, you should not watch The Jeselnik Offensive! Because the talk-show format and topical humor lend themselves to quicker production, the second season will begin this July.
Nathan For You is the wicked brainchild of Canadian comic Nathan Fielder, who uses his business degree and his pretty good grades to give business tips to struggling small businesses. And guess what!? The results are hilarious. Fielder is shooting up the ranks pretty quickly, thanks to nifty viral experiments like getting kids in trouble with their parents by faking drug-related text messages. This show is amazing and you should stop reading this and watch it right now. Season 2 won't air until next year.
There's no word yet on The Ben Show, which launched alongside Nathan For You. But if my very accurate grading of Comedy Central's new shows is as accurate as I believe it to be, it likely won't receive the same good news.
