NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2011 -- Raise a glass and give a toast to the hardly-working man. Adam, Blake and Ders will return for more adventures! COMEDY CENTRAL has renewed "Workaholics" for a third season, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, head of original programming and production COMEDY CENTRAL. Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck will return to work next year for the new season of all-new episodes.

"It's such an honor to be able to keep 'Workaholics' going," said Alterman. "We feel like the show is one, big public service announcement, teaching the youth of America how to engage with the workplace."

"We're beyond excited to get working on season three," said Anderson, Devine, Holm and Newacheck. "Unless it's gonna be hard work - we hate work."

"Workaholics" has been on a roll since its second season premiere on September 20, averaging 2.1 million total viewers per week. The first five episodes of this season have garnered a 1.5 Adult 18-49 rating (up +35% vs. season one), a 3.5 Men 18-34 rating (up +36%) and a 4.4 Men 18-24 rating (up +39%). Across its second season, "Workaholics" has been #1 in all of television in its timeslot (10:30-11:00 p.m.) with Men 18-34 and Men 18-24 and #2 in all of television with Men 18-24 on Tuesday nights behind "Tosh.0."

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´┐Ż 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 (@UncleBlazer, @ADAMDEVINE, @ders808, @kylenewacheck), live tweeting each week on show nights. The "Workaholics" Facebook page is updated daily throughout the season and fans can follow the show's tumblr at workaholics.tumblr.com, featuring exclusive photos, videos and updates. In addition, mobile will feature 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, Jon Thoday and Isaac Horne as well as Gigapix Studios David Pritchard and co-executive produced by Avalon's Dan Lubetkin. Seth Cohen and Jackie Phillips are the executives in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
