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.
