NEW YORK, January 30, 2013 - The "PubLIZity" girls can't wait to spread this good news!

The second season of "Kroll Show," which is executive produced and written by Kroll, John Levenstein ("Arrested Development") and Jonathan Krisel ("Portlandia"), will consist of 10 episodes.

"Nick plays his characters with such comedic conviction, it's become obvious he has a serious personality disorder," said Alterman. "We hope another season will help him discover who he really is."

"All of me are very excited," said Kroll.

The premiere episode of "Kroll Show" on January 16 drew 1.4 million total viewers and was the #1 show in all of television on Wednesday in its 10:30 p.m. timeslot among Men 18-34 and Men 18-24.
