Engvall Will Encore For TBS


TBS is bringing The Bill Engvall Show back for a third campaign.

The “very funny” network will produce10 more installments of the show, which stars Engvall as a family counselor Billy Pearson, who doesn’t always manage the relationships with his family -- wife Susan (Nancy Travis), sons Bryan (Sklyer Gisondo) and Trent (Graham Patrick Martin( and daughter Lauren (Jennifer Lawrence), or best friend Paul (Time Meadows) -- so well.

Cable’s top-rated original sitcom, Engvall averaged 2.3 million viewer during its sophomore season, and is now set to return with fresh episodes in summer 2009

In December, TBS will present two special installments in time for the holidays.

“There’s something about this cast and this show that gives you a good feeling inside, which is probably why it’s won the hearts of so many viewers,” said Michael Wright, senior vice president in charge of the content Creation Group for TBS, TNT and TCM, in a statement. “Their dedication to continually growing the show is evident in the work, and we look forward to a new season of even funnier episodes.”
