Pete Holmes - P 2011

TBS has renewed The Pete Holmes Show.

The late-night talker starring comedian Pete Holmes, which had a seven-week run last year, will return for 13 more weeks with new episodes beginning Feb. 24.

"The first 28 episodes were a joy to make, and I'm so thrilled we get to keep going," said Holmes. "We have so much more we want to do, and I'm looking forward to the opportunity to make great comedy, continue to evolve the show and really push the limits of potty language and tasteful male nudity. I can't wait!"

The Pete Holmes Show, which airs after Conan Mondays through Thursdays at midnight, has averaged 500,000 viewers since its Oct. 28 premiere, with its median viewer age at 36.

The Pete Holmes Show is produced for TBS by Conaco, with Jeff Ross, David Kissinger, Nick Bernstein, Dave Rath and Conan O’Brien serving as executive producers.

Holmes also is the host of the You Made It Weird podcast and has also released a comedy album, Nice Try, The Devil. He also is the voice of the baby in the E-Trade commercials and stars in College Humor's Batman parodies.
