'Atom TV' Returns! COMEDY CENTRAL's Late-Night Series Featuring All Original Broadband Programming Continues Its Second Season With 4 All-New Episodes

New Episodes Of The All-Original Broadband Programming Series Return Monday Night, June 15 At 2:30 A.M.*

Videos Include Atom.com Hits "White People Problems," "Old People News" And "Klingon Night School"

NEW YORK, June 1 -- COMEDY CENTRAL's on-air half-hour late-night series featuring all original broadband programming from Atom.com is returning to the television screen to continue its second season with four new episodes. New episodes of "Atom TV" return to COMEDY CENTRAL on Monday night, June 15 at 2:30 a.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL. Both COMEDY CENTRAL and Atom are divisions of MTV Networks, a unit of Viacom (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B).

"Atom TV" is a weekly comedy show featuring a selection of random and hilarious Web videos, each one of them developed or handpicked by Atom and COMEDY CENTRAL. Each episode of "Atom TV" features a line-up of original programming that includes animation, live-action narratives and sketch comedies.

Atom shows featured on the June 15 return of "Atom TV" are:

"White People Problems": Everyone's got problems -- if only they could all be white people problems. Through the miracle of music video, Zach and Jesse Selwyn take viewers on the journey through the trials and tribulations of a white person living in the modern world.

"Old People News": Senior Citizens report the news. At least, they will as soon as they can figure out how to open their e-mail attachments.

"Modern Day Jesus: Mary": Starring "Attack of the Show!" host Olivia Munn as Mary Magdalene, Jesus and Mary discuss their control freak dads and get flirty with each other.

"Haunt 2": A reenactment of one couple's story about the gay ghost who haunted their home. Created by Oren Brimer and starring Pete Holmes (VH1) and Matt McCarthy.

"Puppet Rodeo": Puppets and live animals team up for a rodeo, and it goes well -- until one dog rips the puppets to shreds.

"Dutch West Short Shorts": 2 episodes of completely random, quick and ridiculous micro-sketches created by the NYC comedy group Dutch West.

"Klingon Night School": This G-Man short about a Klingon class and its dedicated teacher won Atom's Upload Showdown contest, earning a full-length airing on Atom TV.
