Comedy Central has given a quick renewal to the sketch series "Key & Peele."
 
"Key & Peele" premiered last month to strong reviews and 2.1 million viewers, making it Comedy Central's top series launch since 2009 and making the renewal a no-brainer.
 
Looking deeper than the 2.1 million total viewers, "Key & Peele" performed particularly strongly among young male viewers, doing a 2.6 rating among men 1834 and a 3.3 rating among men 18-24, topping its time period in both demos for all of television. 
 
As usual with Comedy Central, the announcement was accompanied by semi-funny blurb quotes from all and sundry.
 
"Because 'Key & Peele' has been so immediately and universally well received, I was worried if we didn't give the show a quick pick up, people might accuse me of being racist," states Kent Alterman, Comedy Central's head of original programming.
 
Ha?
 
Add stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, "We are honored, humbled and most importantly contractually obligated to deliver a second season to Comedy Central."
 
Indeed, "Key & Peele" will get 10 episodes for a second season, premiering this fall.
 
You don't have to wait that long, of course, since a third episode of "Key & Peele" airs on Tuesday at 10:30 p.m. on Comedy Central.
