�We�re thrilled to go into a second season of this family comedy and to continue our relationship with Bill Cosby,� states Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land and Nick at Nite. �Fatherhood has connected with our audience in a huge way, and we know our viewers share the same enthusiasm for fun, family viewing.�
