Vince Vaughn knows a thing or two about partying and drinking (at least his characters do). So it's no surprise that Sullivan & Son, a TBS comedy that he produces, got picked up for a second season today.
Ten episodes were ordered, for launch in 2013, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The series drew an average of more than 2.5 million viewers in its first year - a good number for a cable show on a network that has not had a ton of original programming success.
The show airs with Big Bang Theory repeats, which draw solid ratings for the network.
"Sullivan & Son has gotten off to a strong start, quickly building its own fan base," said Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies. "We've had a great time working with Steve Byrne, Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsley, Rob Long and the wonderful cast and crew of Sullivan & Son, and we look forward to seeing the show continue to grow in 2013."
The series features a character played by Steve Byrne who, as a man moving to Pittsburgh to take ove his family's pub, adjusts to a drastically different life from the one he knew in Manhattan as a corporate attorney.
Other cast members include Jodi Long, Christine Ebersole, Brian Doyle-Murray, Valerie Azlynn, Vivian Bang, Owen Benjamin and Dan Lauria.
I haven't caught the show yet, but I'd like to take it out for a spin. If Brian can secure Bill, I'm there.
