#REALNEWS COMEDY CENTRAL ANNOUNCES SERIES EXTENSION FOR "THE PRESIDENT SHOW"

Produced by Adam Pally's Clone Wolf Productions and Executive Produced by Anthony Atamanuik, Peter Grosz, Pally, Jason Ross, and 3 Arts Entertainment's Olivia Gerke, Josh Lieberman and Greg Walter

Beginning Thursday, September 28 the Series Will Air at Midnight Following The Opposition with Jordan Klepper

LOS ANGELES, July 25, 2017 - Oh Boy Oh Boy! Comedy Central has extended The President Show for an additional seven episodes for a total of 22 episodes, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Comedy Central. Created by Anthony Atamanuik who hosts as Donald J. Trump, and produced by Clone Wolf Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment, this weekly, topical late night series currently airs on Thursdays at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT. Beginning Thursday, September 28, The President Show will premiere at midnight, following new late night series The Opposition with Jordan Klepper.

"When POTUS himself gets so direct and simplistic it's hard to understand what he means, it's valuable to have Anthony there to translate the nuances for us," said Alterman.

"I'm very excited to continue to chronicle the rapid decline of Western Civilization," said Atamanuik. "I want to thank Comedy Central and the fearless Kent Alterman for extending our show for an additional seven episodes with no end in sight!"

The President Show premiered on April 27 to 1 million viewers (L3), the biggest audience for a Comedy Central series premiere since Broad City. Across its inaugural season of making late night great again, the series is up +17% with total viewers in its timeslot versus year ago with its Adult 18-49 rating up +10%. Since its debut, The President Show has outperformed the previous time period occupant by +140% in total viewers and +46% among Adult 18-49 ratings across the prior four-week average. Full episode streams of The President Show are up over +225% compared to all other 2017 premieres on Comedy Central.

In the world of The President Show, Trump is bypassing the crooked media by hosting a late-night show direct from the Oval Office. No unfair questions from reporters, no awkward photo ops with German ladies, and no bedtimes. Just a fun show where he can put his unique Trumpian spin on such late-night staples as desk segments, field pieces and guest interviews. Vice President Mike Pence is featured as his sidekick, played by Peter Grosz.

The President Show airs weekly on Thursdays at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT following The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and available to stream the following day on cc.com/thepresidentshow and the Comedy Central App. Patriots can follow The President Show on Twitter, become a constituent on Facebook and follow the greatest host in late night on Twitter at @LateNightDonald.

The President Show is executive produced by Anthony Atamanuik, Peter Grosz, Adam Pally (Making History, The Mindy Project, Happy Endings), Jason Ross (Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), and 3 Arts Entertainment's Olivia Gerke, Josh Lieberman and Greg Walter with Suzanne Fagel and Christine Nangle as Co-Executive Producers. The series is produced by Pally's Clone Wolf Productions, 3 Arts and directed by Andre Allen. Sarah Babineau and Ari Pearce are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
