Both The Jim Gaffigan Show and Impastor will be returning for second seasons on TV Land. The network announced the comedy shows will return for new seasons following impressive ratings debuts, posting numbers up dramatically over the network’s average. Season one of The Jim Gaffigan Show has been averaging 4 million viewers while the first season of Impastor has been averaging 2.8 million viewers.
TV Land’s Executive Vice President of Development and Original Programming Keith Cox made the announcement, saying, “We’re really proud of these shows that represent the new TV Land. They have quality writing and great casts, and we’re excited to move on to season two for both.”
Season one of The Jim Gaffigan Show is currently airing on Wednesdays at 10pm ET/PT followed by Impastor at 10:30pm.
The Jim Gaffigan Show was created by Gaffigan and Peter Tolan. The series is a single-camera comedy inspired by Gaffigan’s life and chronicles “one man’s struggle in New York City to find a balance between fatherhood, stand-up comedy and an insatiable appetite.” In addition to Gaffigan, the show features Ashley Williams, Adam Goldberg, Michael Ian Black, and Tongayi Chirisa.
Wings‘ Christopher Van created Impastor, a dark comedy starring Michael Rosenbaum, Sara Rue, Mircea Monroe, Mike Kosinski and David Rasche. Rosenbaum plays Buddy Dobbs, “a slacker on the run from his gambling debt. He seizes an unlikely opportunity to steal a man’s identity, and ends up following that man’s path and posing as the new gay pastor of a small, tight-knit town. Only time will tell how long he can keep up the façade.”
TV Land will be airing an Impastor eight episode “catch up” marathon beginning on September 6, 2015 at 1am ET/PT.
