TBS Renews Late-Night Series "The Pete Holmes Show"

Series from Conan O'Brien's Conaco to Return with New Episodes Feb. 24

TBS has renewed its new late-night series The Pete Holmes Show, which enjoyed a seven week run at the end of 2013. TBS has ordered an additional 13 weeks of the series starring popular comedian Pete Holmes and produced by Conaco LLC, the company behind the late-night hit CONAN. New episodes of The Pete Holmes Show are set to launch Feb. 24 and will air Monday-Thursday nights at midnight (ET/PT), following CONAN.

The Pete Holmes Show is produced for TBS by Conaco LLC, with Jeff Ross, David Kissinger, Nick Bernstein, Dave Rath and Conan O'Brien serving as executive producers. Taped before a live studio audience, the series showcases Pete's wide-ranging comedic skill set, which led him to be named one of Variety's "Top 10 Comics to Watch." The show packs live comedy, sketches and video pieces into a fast-paced half hour.

"The first 28 episodes were a joy to make, and I'm so thrilled we get to keep going," Pete said. "We have so much more we want to do, and I'm looking forward to the opportunity to make great comedy, continue to evolve the show and really push the limits of potty language and tasteful male nudity. I can't wait!"

The Pete Holmes Show has averaged nearly half a million viewers since its premiere, with a remarkably young median age of only 36. The show has quickly made a name for itself in the social media realm, with its viral videos like the X-Men parodies and interviews with Olympian Lolo Jones and NBA all star James Harden amassing more than 20 million views on YouTube and Pete Holmes.com. In addition, Pete and the show have also amassed nearly 300,000 fans through social media.

In addition to headlining The Pete Holmes Show, Pete is the host of the You Made It Weird podcast, which was named one of the Top Ten Podcasts of 2012 by both The Onion AV Club and Paste magazine. His comedy album, Nice Try, The Devil, was named one of the best albums of 2013 by The Onion. Since 2011, Pete has starred in CollegeHumor.com's hilarious and extremely popular series of Batman parodies. Pete also provides the voice for the talking baby in the award-winning e*trade ad-campaign.
