Comedy Central orders more 'Kroll Show'


A mere two weeks into the broadcast life of his show and already Comedy Central has decided to increase its bet on Nick Kroll. 

His new series, Kroll Show, debuted on January 16 and pulled down a respectable 1.2 million viewers, not a terrible drop off from the numbers done by its lead-in program, Workaholics (which did 1.7 million viewers - yes, I understand math and the fact that is a 500,000 viewership drop). With the encore episode, it bumped up to 2.0 million total viewers.

Kroll Show did very well in the men 18-24 and 18-34 demos, as 1.6 million of those 2.0 million viewers fit that description. These numbers must fit what the network wants, as it has ordered a second season already, consisting of 10 episodes.

"Nick plays his characters with such comedic conviction, it's become obvious he has a serious personality disorder,” said Comedy Central president of content development and original programming Kent Alterman. “We hope another season will help him discover who he really is."

Kroll, best known for his work on FX's The League, said that "all of me are very excited," a joking reference to the personalities he plays on the show. 

Have you caught the series yet? What do you make of it?

i really enjoy the league so i had somewhat high hopes for this, but unfortunately it is almost criminally unfunny at times. in the latest episode there is a sketch about how guys 18-34 don't like actual shows similar to Liz&Liz yet kroll somehow thinks devoting the majority of the first 3 episodes to Liz&Liz. what are you thinking? i chuckled a few times throughout the episodes but the majority is poorly written unfunny garbage.

The most awful show on comedy central right now. Can't wait til it gets cancelled, as It's the only unwatchable show on cc .

Level 1 (26%)
