    "Dave Attell is coming back to Comedy Central. The cable network has ordered eight half-hour episodes of a new uncensored late night stand-up show that Attell will host, featuring him and other comedians, Variety reports. In addition to that, Comedy Central has greenlit a new hour-long stand-up special from Attell, his first since 2007's Captain Miserable. Both the standup series and the new special are expected to debut in 2014.
    Attell is best known for hosting the cult hit late night show Insomniac on Comedy Central from 2001 to 2004. Following that, he hosted the network's short-lived revival of The Gong Show in 2008 and then jumped to Showtime for his retro smut show Dave's Old Porn, which was canceled this spring."

    Laughspin published a complete list of all the comedians appearing on the upcoming season. There's a few Stern and O&A alums:

    Jay Oakerson
    Lil Rel Howery
    Judah Friedlander
    Ali Wong
    Junior Stopka
    Jimmy Shubert
    Robert Kelly
    Louis Katz

    Those three broadcasts should be excellent.

    His shows don't last longer than three weeks, right?

    Whose idea was it to offer witty banter while watching old porns?

    Didn't he put the kibosh on Insomniac himself?

    Gotta be the dumbest move of all time, that show was beloved.

    I think I read a interview somewhere where he said he was drinking way too much and was having health problems. I know he's been sober for a while now.

    He is terrible, but Attell is funny. Insomniac was a good show.
