Bill Engvall gets another season on TBS
Look, a family sitcom that's NOT on Disney or Nickelodeon which been renewed for another season! How unique!
TBS has ordered up a second season of 10 episodes of The Bill Engvall Show. The comedy, which entered the television landscape back in July, premiered with fairly strong ratings and remained the number two sitcom among adults 18-49 on ad-supported cable (fancy talk for basic cable) for the rest of its freshman season.
The show stars comedian Bil Engvall (The Blue Collar Comedy Tour) as a family counselor whose own family isn't as perfect as you would think. It also stars Nancy Travis as his wife and Tim Meadows as his best friend.
I say good for Bill and TBS. The traditional three-camera, live audience sitcom has nearly gone the way of the dinosaur. It's nice to see someone picking up the torch for this type of program.
