Comedy Central renews 'Kroll Show'
by Stuart Levine

Sketch series will have 10 episodes in new season

Comedy Central has given a second-season order to "Kroll Show." The new season will consist of 10 episodes.

Sketch show has been a hit since launching Jan. 16. Premiere episode drew 1.4 million viewers in its initial 10:30 p.m. telecast and 2 million including repeats that night. Program fares especially well among young males.

"Nick Kroll plays his characters with such comedic conviction, it's become obvious he has a serious personality disorder," said programming topper Kent Alterman. "We hope another season will help him discover who he really is."

Kroll also stars or appears in several other series, including FX's low-budget laffer "The League."

Kroll, John Levenstein and Jonathan Krisel are exec producers.
