TBS has renewed The Pete Holmes Show for 13 weeks. Holmes’ late night talk show enjoyed a very funny seven week run with a strong social media presence. His sketch videos and professional athlete interviews have amassed over 20 million views on YouTube and PeteHolmes.com, although he only averages about half a million viewers a night falling just behind Chris Hardwick’s Comedy Central late night show @midnight in the same time slot.
Pete and his show have racked up nearly 300,000 social media followers in his initial short run. “The first 28 episodes were a joy to make, and I’m so thrilled we get to keep going,” Holmes said. “We have so much more we want to do, and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to make great comedy, continue to evolve the show and really push the limits of potty language and tasteful male nudity. I can’t wait!”
New episodes of The Pete Holmes Show are set to launch Feb. 24, after the Sochi Olympics coverage concludes on NBC, at midnight (Eastern and Pacific) on Monday-Thursday nights after Conan.
