More 'Ugly Americans' for Comedy Central

Comedy Central has ordered seven additional episodes of 'Ugly Americans'Good news for those of you hanging out after 'South Park' to watch 'Ugly Americans': Comedy Central has decided to pick up some more episodes of the animated, horror-comedy.

But before you go apoplectic with excitement, the network has ordered just seven additional installments. However, with the amount of time it takes for some animated shows to be produced, and the fact that this is cable, that's almost like a full-season order.

The show, which is a pseudo-workplace comedy about a social worker who helps humans, vampires and demons (among other unusual creatures) integrate into the normal world, has been fairly steady at about 2 million viewers. With 'South Park' garnering an average of million viewers (ages 18-49), 'Ugly Americans' is holding around half the audience. With the continued success of 'South Park' and new episodes of 'Futurama' on the horizon, 'Ugly Americans' looks to be in good animated company.

The new episodes will begin airing on Comedy Central in October.

After last week's Treegasm episode, I'm completely and officially hooked on Ugly Americans. I should note that the B-plot was my favorite part last week, but still, even the A plot was quite hilarious.

I'm enjoying the show, so I'm glad to hear it's been picked up.

Yeah, it's only seven episodes, but given that's about how long each part of a split season runs in the US, it doesn't really feel like a short order.

The Addams Family animated series was a much
spookier, but better show than Ugly Americans.
I hope Comedy Central isn't planning on keeping
that show as a lead-in companian to South Park
for the next 10 years.
