"Comedy Central's Indecision" Launches New iOS App

"'Comedy Central's Indecision' Election Companion" Now Available as a Free Download For iPad and iPhone

Comedy Central's First "Indecision" App Available Now On iTunes

NEW YORK, March 29, 2012 -- Comedy Central has announced today the launch of "'Comedy Central's Indecision' Election Companion," a new iOS-optimized election news and political humor app. The "Election Companion" app, sponsored by AT&T, is available now as a free iTunes download for iPhones and iPads and provides users with exclusive jokes, interactive content, photo galleries and second-screen experiences.

"'Comedy Central's Indecision' Election Companion" app delivers iPad and iPhone users exclusive politics-centric content through an iOS-optimized version of the "Indecision" blog; a photo gallery called "Snap Shots," which captures the 24-hour news cycle in images and jokes; a 2012 Election Calendar; and an app-only exclusive "Peanut Gallery" commentary feature, which provides a second-screen experience for nationally-televised political talk shows, debates and speeches. The "Peanut Gallery" also includes exclusive live commentary from Indecision bloggers and special guests, and offers real-time interactive "Reacticons" for users to register their opinions. For example, users can post "Reacticons" such as "Cry-Baby," "Dunce," "Yawn," "Knock-Out" or "Bulls#*!" to express their reactions as they watch candidates and talking heads on their TV screens. The "Reacticons" will then grow and shrink to reflect the Indecision community's collective opinion in real time.

Mary Phillips-Sandy, Editorial Producer, "Comedy Central's Indecision" commented, "'Comedy Central's Indecision' coverage brings political humor to consumers with smart, witty commentary about the candidates, pundits and the political process itself. Launching the 'Election Companion' app will provide our fans with even more platforms to enjoy Comedy Central's election coverage throughout the campaign season."

Comedy Central's Indecision -- the network's award-winning brand of political coverage --began in 1992 with the Al Franken-hosted "State of the Union: Undressed." This unprecedented, live comedic coverage of President George Bush's 1992 State of the Union Address was made possible only after Comedy Central successfully pressured ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN to provide the network access to the pool feed of the speech. The success of that special -- the original alternative to mainstream political coverage -- led to Comedy Central's "Indecision" election coverage with nightly reports from the 1992 Republican and Democratic national conventions and an in-depth election night special.

Today, comedy fans and politicos can follow "Comedy Central's Indecision," the digital extension of the network's political coverage, by logging onto indecision.cc.com, following Indecision on Tumblr, liking the Indecision page on Facebook, following @indecision on Twitter or subscribing to daily Liberal Agenda and Conservative Marching Orders sent directly to mobile phones via text message. "Comedy Central's Indecision" team consists of Mary Phillips-Sandy, Dennis DiClaudio, River Clegg, Gonzalo Cordova, Jess Dweck, Ilya Gerner, Lisa Beth Johnson and Dan Poppy.
