Fuse Orders More 'Billy on the Street'
The cable network adds 12 additional installments of its freshman pop culture show featuring Billy Eichner.
Comedian Billy Eichner is delivering big for Fuse.
The cable network on Tuesday announced that it has ordered 12 additional episodes of Funny or Die's Billy on the Street.
Since its December bow, the late-night series that features the comedian quizzing New York pedestrians on music and pop culture is averaging 1.3 million total viewers per its first 10 installments, which have included cameos from Joan Rivers, Rachel Dratch and more.
“I'm incredibly excited to come back later this year with new episodes, fresh games, and more crazy contestants to quiz in the face," Eichner said in a statement announcing the news.
Eichner, a regular on New York's improv circuit, created his man on the street videos as part of his live shows in which he asks people their opinions on politics and pop culture.
The series marks the third TV project for Funny or Die, joining HBO's Funny or Die Presents and Comedy Central's Jon Benjamin Has a Van. Billy on the Street joins a music-themed Fuse lineup that includes Hoppus on Music, Hip Hop Shop and the live concert series Fuse Presents, among others.
