NICK AT NITE KICKS OFF STAR-STUDDED NEW SEASON OF STOP-MOTION COMEDY SERIES GLENN MARTIN, DDS ON FRIDAY, JUNE 11, WITH ALL-NEW EPISODES FEATURING CELEBRITY GUEST VOICES INCLUDING BRET MICHAELS, MEL BROOKS, FERGIE, KRISTEN BELL, SEAN HAYES, BETTY WHITE AND JIMMY KIMMEL

NEW YORK, May 14, 2010 - Nick at Nite will kick off the second season of its original stop-motion animated comedy series, Glenn Martin, DDS, on Friday, June 11, at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT) with all-new episodes packed with celebrity guest stars including Bret Michaels, Mel Brooks, Fergie, Kristen Bell, Sean Hayes, Betty White, Jimmy Kimmel, John Corbett, Fran Drescher, Bradley Whitford, Cheri Oteri, MC Hammer, Jason Alexander, George Takei, Howie Mandel, Don Johnson, Ty Burrell, Ashley Tisdale, Jim Parsons, two-time Emmy Award winner Bryan Cranston and Oscar nominated actresses Gabourey Sibide and Ellen Page, among others. Glenn Martin, DDS' all-star lead voice cast will also return, including Kevin Nealon (Weeds, Anger Management) as Glenn Martin, Catherine O'Hara (For Your Consideration, Chicken Little) as Jackie Martin and Judy Greer (27 Dresses, Arrested Development) as Wendy Park. The Annie Award nominated series, from Tornante Animation, airs regularly Fridays at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

"Season two of Glenn Martin, DDS will feature some of today's funniest and most recognizable celebrity voices in almost every episode," said Marjorie Cohn, Nickelodeon's President, Development and Original Programming. "In addition to the comic brilliance of Kevin Nealon, Catherine O'Hara and Judy Greer, it's fabulous to have these talented actors and musicians lend their voices and humor to the show."

In the season premiere entitled "Bust'em Up," with former Poison lead singer Bret Michaels (Celebrity Apprentice, Rock of Love) starring as himself, Jackie's frustration about the lack of romance in their marriage leads Glenn to book a spa weekend to help rekindle the magic. Unbeknownst to Jackie, their romantic get-away is actually a hidden camera reality show--hosted by Howie Mandel guest starring as himself--in which contestants are tested to see if they'll stay together or if the show can "Bust'em Up." Meanwhile, Grandpa Whitey (Don Johnson, Miami Vice) watches the kids and teaches Conor (Peter Oldring) how to be a man by hunting a vicious turkey. Casey Wilson (SNL) also guest stars as the voices of the romantic wife, the spa receptionist and Carla.

Glenn Martin, DDS follows the offbeat adventures of beleaguered dentist, Glenn, and his family - earnest yet slightly cynical wife, Jackie; hormone-addled son, Conor; power suit-wearing daughter, Courtney (Jackie Clarke); her subservient assistant, Wendy (Judy Greer); and family dog, Canine - who trade in the suburbs for a life on the road. Yearning for a deeper connection with his family, Glenn has packed up the Martins in an RV, which doubles as his dentist office, to go cross-country. The second season will take them on new adventures, meeting colorful locals, to such places as the San Francisco Mint; Salem, Massachusetts; the Seattle fish market and the Big Apple. The Martins, who put the "fun" in dysfunctional, are a family who loves and can depend on one another, despite all the mayhem.

Glenn Martin, DDS is the most co-viewed program on Nick at Nite, with 35% of adults 18-49 watching with a child. Year-to-date, Nick at Nite is basic cable's number-one ranked network in total day among women 18-49 and finished 2009 as basic cable's number-one network in total day with the same audience, averaging a 0.7/415,000 W18-49 and 1.5 million total viewers. Premiere episodes of Glenn Martin, DDS currently average 2.0 million total viewers each week (Source: Nielsen Media Research, Live + 7 Day data thru 4/25/10, Live + Same Day data thru 5/7/10).

Glenn Martin, DDS was developed for Nick at Nite by Michael Eisner, who co-created the series along with Alex Berger and Eric Fogel, who is also an executive producer overseeing animation. Sivert Glarum and Michael Jamin (King of the Hill, Just Shoot Me) serve as executive producers and show runners. The show is produced by Steven Cohen and Noel Bright for Tornante Animation, a division of The Tornante Company LLC.
