Fans of Amy Schumer, Andy Daly, and oddball animation can rejoice. Comedy Central (who we are STILL mad at for passing on Anthony Jeselnik’s brilliant taboo-busting show) has decided to renew ‘Inside Amy Schumer,‘Review,’ and ‘Triptank.’ Everyone’s favorite funny lady will be entering her third season (really?) while Daly’s deconstruction of everyday things, as well as the cartoon compendium of craziness, are both starting their second. All three represent some of the best new things on the cable channel, along with ‘@midnight,’ ‘Tosh.0,’ the old stalwart ‘South Park,’ and the still formidable ‘Daily Show’/’Colbert Report’ twofer.

In addition (according to The Wrap), CC has also greenlit two new shows, one of which sounds incredibly bizarre. Another Period will feature comediennes Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome as two turn of the century party girls who, and we quote the article, “have absolutely nothing to offer to the world, but who have so much money that it doesn’t matter.” Indeed, the characters will spend most of their time focusing on “how they look, what parties they attend and becoming famous, which is a lot harder in 1902.” The other series, entitled ‘Idiotsitter’ stars Jillian Bell and Charlotte Newhouse, as a caretaker and a rich spoiled womanchild respectively. The title suggests something very un-PC.

The Wrap also points to six new online series – ‘6 Guys 1 Car,’ ‘Team Tiger Awesome,’ ‘300 Sunnyside,’ ‘New Timers,’ ‘Pie Guys,’ and ‘Roustabout with Kurt Braunohler’ – to be offered across various platforms, though no details about premise or cast are offered. Of course, by using the adjective “new,” this means there are already Comedy Central originals available on the web, which would be “news” to this channel fan. On the other hand, the Leggero and Lindhome project has a lot of promise. Both of those ladies are incredibly funny and, with the right tone and approach, the network could have another grrrl power hit on their hands. Hope Amy doesn’t mind sharing the spotlight.
