Comedy Central Wants More ‘Workaholics’

WorkaholicApparently, we need to start watching Workaholics. It’s only a month into its run and Comedy Central already ordered 10 more episodes of the new show. This is a little surprising, because if the past teaches us anything, live-action scripted comedies other than Reno 911 have a bit of a difficult time hanging on on the comedy centric channel.

Though it’s called Workaholics, the show is about three drug-loving slackers (see what they did there?) who only really work when it comes to trying not to fail drug tests or to score basketball tickets or, of course, trying to get laid. It sounds like a stoner’s delight, and from what the ratings show, it is. In fact, it’s doing so well that it’s becoming influential…sort of…but not really. Comedy Central’s head of programming jokes to Deadline, “Pretty soon, our national productivity will be so low, we will all have more leisure time.” Clearly, this show is really serving its societal purpose. Bravo, Comedy Central.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
