Comedy Central Renews ‘Root of All Evil’

May 21, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Comedy Central has picked up Lewis Black’s freshman series for a sophomore season.
“Lewis Black’s Root of All Evil” uses a political debate format wherein a rotating pair of comedians argue who or what is more evil in matchups such as “Paris Hilton vs. Dick Cheney,” “Las Vegas vs. the human body” or “alcohol vs. marijuana.” Mr. Black has the final say.
“Root’s” March debut was the highest-rated premiere since the network’s “Chappelle’s Show.”
“We are thrilled to renew ‘Lewis Black’s Root of All Evil’ for a second season and have it return to our schedule so quickly with new episodes this summer,” Lauren Corrao, president of original programming and development at Comedy Central, said in a statement Wednesday. “The pop culture series struck a chord with our audience from the first episode, and we know that Lewis and his fellow comedians have many more evil topics to deliberate over.”
“I am conflicted,” said Mr. Black. “I am thrilled it’s been picked up, but it means I have to go back to work.”
The second season is set to premiere July 30 at 10:30 p.m. ET.
