More 'Ugly Americans' for Comedy Central

by Rich Keller, posted Apr 21st 2010 1:30PM
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.

Simpsons writer brings animated sci-fi comedy to Comedy Central

by Mike Moody, posted May 15th 2009 3:09PM
Ugly Americans 5 OnComedy Central is adding a number of shows to its schedule for the upcoming fall season. One of the network's more interesting projects comes from former Simpsons writer David Stern, who also worked on Monk and The Wonder Years.

Stern's new animated comedy, Ugly Americans, is being billed as a spinoff of the ComedyCentral.com animated series 5 On. Ugly Americans is set in a very different New York City where humans co-exist with aliens and robots.

I know, I think it sounds a bit like Futurama too. But here's the difference. Unlike Futurama, Ugly Americans is about a NYC social worker at the Department of immigration who helps immigrants, from outer space and from other countries, adjust to life in the U.S.
