The pilot of the show was Comedy Central’s highest-rated series premiere of 2013. EW’s Melissa Maerz gave Schumer’s show an A and said “There’s something communal about Schumer’s approach to comedy. It’s not just about punchlines. It’s about conversations. And she makes the women around her seem funnier, just by letting them in on the joke.”
Comedy Central has shown faith in its freshman shows starring comedians. The network previously announced that it was renewing Kroll Show, The Jeselnik Offensive, and Nathan For You for second seasons as well.
Inside Amy Schumer airs Tuesdays on Comedy Central at 10:30 p.m. ET.
