Two of Comedy Central's best shows have just been renewed for additional episodes. First off, Comedy Central has ordered a fifth season of Inside Amy Schumer, according to a press release from the network. This news comes a few months prior to the premiere of the fourth season of the popular sketch show created by the popular comedian, who is up for a Golden Globe award this weekend for her performance in Trainwreck. "We are so excited to get picked up,” Schumer said in a statement. “I've gotten picked up many times, but this time feels the best." In addition, the network has also ordered two more seasons of Broad City. This series, which stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson as two best friends living in New York City, has only aired season 1 and 2 so far, but now it is guaranteed to run for at least five seasons.  Episodes of Inside Amy Schumer's second season usually attracted between 700,000 and 800,000 viewers per week. Broad City's numbers are quite similar, although they'll likely be getting a huge ratings boost later this year when Hilary Clinton appears on an episode.
