Jun 2, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Comedy Central is planning a second season of "Important Things with Demetri Martin."

The network Tuesday announced a season two greenlight for Martin’s offbeat comedy series, which is produced by Jon Stewart’s Busboy Productions. The series is scheduled to return with new episodes early next year.
"The uniquely creative Demetri Martin brought a great new perspective to the network, striking a chord with our viewers and becoming an immediate sensation, especially among our core young men and Gen Y," said Lauren Corrao, president of original programming and development for Comedy Central.

"Important Things" averaged 2.3 million viewers during its first season last winter. Its February 11 debut was the most-watched series premiere on Comedy Central since the 2003 bow of "Chapelle’s Show."
