'Atom TV' Returns to COMEDY CENTRAL with a New Season!

The Second Season Of The All-Original Broadband Programming Series Premieres Monday Night, March 30 At 2:30 A.M.*

NEW YORK, March 18 -- COMEDY CENTRAL announces the second season premiere of "Atom TV," an on-air, half-hour, late-night series featuring all-original broadband programming from Atom.com. "Atom TV" will premiere Monday night, March 30 at 2:30 a.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL. Both COMEDY CENTRAL and Atom are divisions of MTV Networks, a unit of Viacom (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B).

"Atom TV" is a weekly comedy show featuring a selection of random and hilarious Web videos, each one of them developed or handpicked by COMEDY CENTRAL and Atom. Each episode of "Atom TV" features a line-up of original programming that includes animation, live-action narratives and sketch comedies. Some of the Web series that aired on the first season of "Atom TV" included, "Stickman Exodus," "Legend of Neil," "Border Patrol" and "Steven and Stephen," an animated series about Internet-obsessed, groin-conjoined twins from "Adult Swim's" Tim & Eric.

Below are the Atom shows featured on the second season premiere of "Atom TV":

"El Vacio: Blogger (Loser Boyfriend)": A young man's pathetic pleas to his girlfriend are posted online for everyone to see.

"Blake Lewis Is Sh*tting In My Bathroom": "American Idol" season six runner-up Blake Lewis is sh*tting in comedian Kyle Cease's bathroom, just to prove he'll always have the number two spot.

"The Stimulus Package": Comedy sketch group "The Landline" creates porn to better explain Obama's new stimulus plan.

"Cutman, Episode 3": The out-of-shape cutman continues to help out his boxers again in the third installment of this series.

"My Best Friend Is My Penis: Episode 3": Will gets a new best friend and Jon begs for him back.

"Weekend Plans": A parody music video about newly-married 30-something folks who try to make new friends with other married couples because their single friends still party too much.

"Spanish For Your Nanny": Atom.com users vote weekly to determine which new uploaded videos should be shown on "Atom TV." This week, a group of rich, snobby suburban wives learn certain phrases for speaking with their nannies -- or so they think. This is the second "Upload Showdown" winner in the show's history to run in full-length!

"5 On: Celebuskanks": Animated monsters and aliens discuss today's popular "it" girls and celebrities.

Other Atom shows airing in the second season include the series finale of "My Best Friend Is My Penis: Episode 4," in which Will shoots and kills a passerby so the unemployed Jon can take his money; "Oprah Is Dead," in which the question, "Can the world survive without Oprah?" is finally answered; "Modern Day Jesus: I Died For You," about a hip Jesus who uses his Son of God status to get His way; and "Huggles," an "Upload Showdown" winner about a woman losing her mind after giving her boyfriend a teddy bear for his birthday. The second season of "Atom TV" premieres on Monday night, March 30 at 2:30 a.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL.
