'The Jeselnik Offensive,' 'Nathan for You' Renewed by Comedy Central
Comedy Central is sticking with comics Anthony Jeselnik and Nathan Fielder.
The Viacom-owned cable network has renewed the duo's freshman efforts, The Jeselnik Offensive and Nathan for You, for a second season. Ten new episodes of the former are set to begin in July, while the same number of episodes of Nathan will bow in 2014.
“Anthony and Nathan share dashing good looks and razor-sharp wit. One of them is also a humanitarian,” quipped Comedy Central's president of content development and original programming Kent Alterman in a statement announcing the news Friday.
"Sounds good," added Fielder, with Jeselnik chiming in: “I don't know what joke Kent Alterman attempted in this press release, but I'm sure it's terrible."
