Human Giant gets a second season
It shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to anyone that Human Giant, the new sketch comedy series for MTV, has been granted a second season.
In order to drum up more interest in the show, MTV turned the network over to the Human Giant men: Aziz Ansari, Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer for 24 hours and told them they had to garner one million hits on their Web site if they wanted a second season. Of course, taking into consideration lines from the press release like, "fans can also show up in Times Square to deliver a pizza counting for 80 hits, or carving Paul Scheer's face into Mount Rushmore for the entire million hits" it's obvious the series was going to be renewed all along. Still, it's nice to hear an official announcement.
If you missed any of the Human Giant takeover, you can go to their site and see some clips. Some of the guests included Michael Cera and Will Arnett of Arrested Development; Rob Riggle of The Daily Show; Tim and Eric (via phone); John Gemberling and Curtis Gwinn of the recent Adult Swim pilot, Fat Guy Stuck in the Internet; John Krasinski from The Office and a bunch of other special guests and cool bands. Also, fans got a chance to see the season finale before it aired (those who missed it can catch it Thursday, May 24 at 10:30 p.m.).
