News Briefs: Comedy Central Renews Brickleberry for Season 2


... Comedy Central has ordered a second season of Brickleberry, the animated series from Daniel Tosh about a bunch of park rangers and some bears that's full of references to genitals and sex. I can't say it's any good, but I understand that Comedy Central wants to keep its prized possession (Tosh) happy, because business is all about sticking your lips so far up the ass of the right people you can taste the back of their throats.

I have no idea what I just wrote, but I can't wait to see what happens on Dog With a Blog. [Deadline Hollywood]
