"Workaholics" Continue To Climb The Corporate Ladder As COMEDY CENTRAL® Orders Fourth And Fifth Seasons

Hit Series Stars Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Is Directed by Mail Order Comedy's Kyle Newacheck

PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The phones will keep ringing at TelAmeriCorp!  Adam, Blake and Ders will keep clocking in at the office as COMEDY CENTRAL has renewed "Workaholics" for a fourth and a fifth season, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, Head of Original Programming and Production, COMEDY CENTRAL.  Thirteen episodes have been ordered for each season and new episodes of the hit series from Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck will begin on Wednesday, January 16 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. 

"When I realized 'Workaholics' is not a reality show, it made me appreciate the guys' talent that much more.  It only seems right that we would renew for two seasons."

"We're stoked!," added Mail Order Comedy's Anderson, Devine, Holm and Newacheck.

Over its third season summer run, "Workaholics" averaged 2 million total viewers and was the highest rated series in its timeslot across all of television among Men 18-34 and Men 18-24.  A cult favorite among young men, the series was the second highest-rated show on cable on Tuesday nights with Men 18-34 and Men 18-24, finishing behind only its lead-in, "Tosh.0."

From the minds of the hilarious and irreverent Internet sketch group Mail Order Comedy, "Workaholics" is a single-camera comedy featuring three friends who work together from 9 to 5, live together from 5 to 9 and party together 24/7.  Dress codes, deadlines and waking up before noon are not things these guys are used to.  They do their jobs and sometimes they even do them well, but they show up late, leave drunk and always live for the day…even if they don't know what day it is.  Whether it's Blake (Blake Anderson) dressed in a bear coat, Adam (Adam Devine) singing about Catherine Zeta Jones while high on mushrooms or The Ders (Anders Holm) celebrating his birthday with a drinking triathlon, the boys always seem to run into trouble wherever they go.

The "Workaholics" have a large social media presence and love to #GETWEIRD with fans on Twitter (@UncleBlazer, @ADAMDEVINE, @ders808, @kylenewacheck), as they live tweet during every new episode.  The Facebook page has over 1.1 million fans and is updated daily throughout the season and the show's official tumblr features exclusive animated gifs, photos, memes and videos.  The "Workaholics" Web site features a wealth of video content including the web series, "Workaholics: The Other Cubicle," featuring your favorite cubicle neighbors "Montez," "Waymond" and "Jet Set" as well as show clips, exclusive video and more.  In addition, "Workaholics" fans following the show with the TV companion app, Zeebox, can use their mobile devices to access interactive features in real-time as the show airs, including bonus content and social updates from friends and fellow viewers.

"Workaholics" was co-created by Mail Order Comedy's Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck and 5th Year's Dominic Russo and Connor Pritchard.  The series stars Anderson, Devine and Holm and is directed by Newacheck.  Executive Producers include Mail Order Comedy, Kevin Etten, 5th Year's Russo and Pritchard, Avalon Television's Richard Allen-Turner, David Martin, Jon Thoday and Isaac Horne.  The series is co-executive produced by Avalon's Dan Lubetkin and Craig DigregorioSeth Cohen and Jackie Phillips are the Executives in Charge of Production for COMEDY CENTRAL.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served.

Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
