NEW YORK, May 4, 2011 -- COMEDY CENTRAL has enabled the boys of "Workaholics" by picking up a second season, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, head of original programming and production COMEDY CENTRAL. Mail Order Comedy's Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck go back to work and start production on 10 new episodes of the series that has been #1 in its timeslot in all of television among young men over the course of its first season, which premiered on April 6.

"It's not only gratifying to know the audience for 'Workaholics' has grown week-by-week, but also rewarding to see how the show is changing the way people live and work," said Alterman. "Pretty soon, our national productivity will be so low, we will all have more leisure time."

"Our parents think it's 'very tight butthole' that they don't have to pay our rent any longer," said Mail Order Comedy's Anderson, Devine, Holm and Newacheck. "We couldn't agree more. Thanks Papa Alterman!"

"Workaholics" launched on April 6 and has averaged 1.2 million total viewers across its first four episodes with a season-high 1.5 million total viewers for its most recent episode on April 27. In addition to its popularity among young men, the series has shown double-digit growth among Adults 18-49 each and every week of its first season, with a +19% increase last week as it hit a series-high 1.00 A18-49 rating and 1.1 million A18-49 viewers.

From the minds of the hilarious and irreverent Internet sketch group Mail Order Comedy, "Workaholics" is a single camera comedy featuring three friends who work together as telemarketers from 9 to 5 and live together from 5 to 9. Dress codes, deadlines and waking up before noon are not things these guys are used to. They do their jobs and sometimes they even do them well, but they show up late, leave drunk and always live for the day...even if they don't know what day it is. Co-created by Mail Order Comedy's Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck and 5th Year's Dominic Russo and Connor Pritchard, the series stars Anderson, Devine and Holm and is directed by Newacheck. Kevin Etten serves as the show runner.

The "Workaholics" Web site features a wealth of video content including show clips, exclusive video, cast interviews and behind-the-scenes action. The guys are active on Twitter (Anders, Blake, Adam, Kyle) and Facebook where fans communicate with them throughout the season. In addition, mobile features a WAP site loaded with video content and periodic SMS challenges.

"Workaholics" is executive produced by Mail Order Comedy, Etten, 5th Year's Russo and Pritchard, Avalon Television's Richard Allen-Turner, David Martin and Jon Thoday, as well as Gigapix Studios David Pritchard. Mail Order Comedy is represented by Isaac Horne of Avalon Management. Seth Cohen and Jackie Phillips are the executives in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
