The new season returns to MTV2 in 2007 for 6 new episodes and takes the bizarre antics and pranks of America's favorite internet sensation along with his new found fame and meager fortune from his apartment in New York's Lower East Side to the streets of Hollywood.

"The Andy Milonakis Show and MTV2 is a match made in heaven. Its subversive comedic tone and viral feel fits right into the MTV2 sensibility and its format is tailor made for multiplatform programming plays across our various screens," said Tony DiSanto, EVP Series Development and Animation MTV, Head of Programming, MTV2. "Our approach to the new season is to think beyond just linear TV episodes and look at the show from a multi-media content perspective. The hilarious pranks, sketches and celebrity cameos will be back but Andy has moved from NYC out to California to raise hell in a new neighborhood ... and word is he may even surprise everyone with a new shirt (we're still working on that)."

"We are very happy to be picked up for a third season on MTV2," said Jimmy Kimmel. "Andy has many more important things to say and do. For instance, he plans to put a hat on a gerbil."

The infamous Milonakis began his antics on the Internet where he developed a cult following, including the recognition of Kimmel, who in turn started featuring Milonakis on his ABC late night show "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Between his internet notoriety and new found TV audience, this eventually catapulted Milonakis to land his own outlandish series, The Andy Milonakis Show, on MTV2 serving up a hardcore Milonakis-loving audience that continues to grow. Now, this off-the-wall comedy centered on young Andy, stuck at home in his apartment on New York's Lower East Side moves to Hollywood for all new weird and wacky adventures. Season 2 of The Andy Milonakis Show on MTV2 reached 21.2 million total viewers which includes premiere and repeat telecasts.

The highlights continue on MTV2, as the network celebrates its highest rated third quarter in channel history among P12-34 and M12-24, making it the 15th consecutive quarter where MTV2 has posted growth versus prior year among P12-34. In third quarter, the "Sucker Free Sunday" programming grew 26% among P12-34 and up 41% among M12-24 versus a year ago.
