NEW YORK, May 23, 2017 – In a sweeping victory, Comedy Central has extended the inaugural season of The President Show for an additional seven episodes, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Comedy Central. Created by Anthony Atamanuik who hosts as Donald J. Trump, and produced by Clone Wolf Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment, this weekly, topical late night series airs on Thursdays at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.
“Whether we’re witnessing the end of democracy, or merely the end of the world, it’s a privilege seeing it from the inside,” said Alterman.
“I’m so grateful that Comedy Central has decided to end its tenure as a cable network by renewing The President Show,” said Atamanuik.
The President Show, currently in its first season, debuted on April 27 to 1 million viewers (L3), the biggest audience for a Comedy Central series premiere since Broad City and is averaging 870,000 total viewers across its first four episodes.

On digital, streams of The President Show are up nearly 400% versus all other Comedy Central premieres in 2017.
In the world of The President Show, Trump is bypassing the crooked media by hosting a late-night show direct from the Oval Office. No unfair questions from reporters, no awkward photo ops with German ladies, and no bedtimes. Just a fun show where he can put his unique Trumpian spin on such late-night staples as desk segments, field pieces and guest interviews. Vice President Mike Pence is featured as his sidekick, played by Peter Grosz. Sarah Babineau and Ari Pearce are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
The President Show airs weekly on Thursdays at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT following The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and available to stream the following day on cc.com/thepresidentshow and the Comedy Central App. Patriots can follow The President Show on Twitter, become a constituent on Facebook and follow the greatest host in late night on Twitter at @LateNightDonald.

I miss it, please bring it back! I’ve been very patient waiting for its return
You MUST renew this show! My mom & I look forward to it every week. It’s simply hilarious! We often forget it’s an actor portraying the #TweeterInChief!

Love it!! Need more.. very funny look forward to Thursdays
I am very pleased with this portrayal of the last (great) president this country try will ever have (are you kidding?). Are you sure he will be the last one? Don’t we get a second chance? Keep the show and that will ensure that “he” stays with forever! (Oh! Shut up! Don’t give him and his minions any ideas please). Channeling “him” is the best possible way to understand what doesn’t work in that feeble, senile and sick mind. He has the KKK to support him but, a big but, we have the AAARP and we are even more senile-r… Read more »
This show isn’t funny. Get this smut off of comedy central. I watch comedy central to laugh, not to get a one sided view of a leftist political agenda. This is just blatant bashing and bullying of our president. No comedy.
I Love It!!!
I REALLY can use a good laugh right now!!
Keep up the FUN and FUNNY work!!
What a shame. People should come to the building of Comedy Central and destroy it.
Why do you say that Sam? I’m an Independent; overall a moderate with both conservative & liberal views on varying issues (more conservative & Republican leaning overall); very supportive of President Trump on some issues & totally against him regarding his attacks on Medicaid, SNAP, his bombing in Syria, & backtracking on NAFTA. I don’t have to agree with everything said/done on The President Show to find it funny, entertaining, & enjoyable. Are you a Trump supporter? A conservative or more conservative than liberal? If so, conservatives are in comparison more truly open minded, more capable of accepting jokes as… Read more »
Yes, I’ve “been watching The President Show”. I “think ..this Comedy Central TV show” is hilariously funny & is the best comedy show on tv (even funnier than the hysterical MSNBC comedy channel). Yes, I “expect it to be..renewed for season two”.
I’m more a fan of drama, sci-fi, dramedie, reality competitions, classic comedy oldies (All In The Family 71-89, Hogan’s Hero’s 65-71, I Dream Of Jeannie 65-70, MASH 72-83, WKRP 78-82) . I find current comedies silly & boring (except for recent show Welcome To Sweden 2014-15). Jeannie & WKRP were the best.
