'Ugly Americans' has officially been cancelled by Comedy Central. RIP (for now?) vastly underrated show. Go check out the Mad Larry episode “So, You Want to Be a Vampire?” if you’ve never seen the series before.
manimator:


As you might have gathered by now, Comedy Central did not renew us for a 3rd season. The reason this notice is coming so late is that, in spite of lukewarm ratings, the network did everything in their power to keep the show alive by trying to find outside financing. We came very close but unfortunately some legal technicalities kept any deals from going through.  We are exploring our options, even ones that don’t include traditional TV episodes, such as original web shorts or even a graphic novel. We love this universe and the characters and we want to keep them alive (or undead) for you in any way we can. We the producers would continue to make the show without a paycheck to ourselves, but unfortunately animation and all the aspects of TV production are rather expensive.   We appreciate your steadfast loyalty to our little show. We will continue to update this page with any news we have about Ugly Americans, along with new projects of interest from the writers, producers, animators, and cast.  Yours in Ugliness, The Producers of Ugly Americans

Yes. Sadly. It’s official. Ugly Americans is not coming back any time soon. I’m sorry we can’t make more episodes for you guys. I want to thank all the Ugly fans for their support and for all the awesome fan art. Keep it up! Who knows? Maybe we can Kickstart something Ugly in the future. A movie? A graphic novel? The other show producers and I are working hard to find a new home for Mark, Randall, Callie, Twayne, Leonard, and Grimes (and Koala Man of course).

Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon Has a Release Date

Apocalypsegeddon will hit the Playstation Network on August 30 and Xbox Live Arcade on August 31 for the low, low price of $9.99.

Ugly Americans is trending on Twitter, but not because people are excited for the season two premiere on Comedy Central tonight (which they should be) but because they’re offended foreigners are calling them ugly. 
Seriously watch Ugly Americans on Comedy Central (or at least DVR it, because Louie).
Also, TUMBLER.

MTV Networks today announced the inception of 345 Games, a division charged with creating video games based on Comedy Central and Spike TV properties.

The launch will be celebrated with an August release of an Ugly Americans-themed game called Apocalypsegeddon.

Comedy Central explains the game like this: “Uniting the spirit and humor of the animated horror-comedy series with addictive game play, the four player co-op side scroller shooter game will feature an exclusive script written by the show writers and creators – including a new character unique to the game and custom voiceovers from the show’s actors. Players will hit the streets to clean up the chaos and prevent the impending apocalypse by resolving case files and fighting otherworldly citizens.”

The game will be available for $10 on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network.

I’d play that. Also, hilarious title.

14 episodes starting in June. Which might mean that it’s flying the post-South Park nest. If so this is great that Comedy Central has enough faith to give it its own night but troubling without the support of the veteran hit.

'Ugly Americans' panel.
Moderated by Randy Pearlstein (Leonard), L-R: Aaron Augenblick (animator), Daniel Powell (exec producer), Devin Clark (creator), Matt Oberg (Mark), Kurt Metzger (Randall), and Larry Murphy.
Comedy Central really knows how to throw a panel. Their presentations were slick, well produced, and downright entertaining. Both this and Nick Swardson’s were one of the highlights of the whole thing for me. Ugly Americans is animated series about a normal guy living and working in a New York City inhabited by every creature, freak, and mythological beast imaginable. 
Footage: Music video style clip reel featuring stuff from season 2 and an unfunny Natasha Leggero (Callie) clip in which she apologized for not being there. 
Info/Exclusives: Got interesting background info on the show. Clark created it out of the desire to just draw crazy creatures. Thus far they’ve done 400-500 unique character designs. The show was first pitched in 2006. David Stern, legendary Simpsons writer, serves as its show runner. It’s written in LA, voiced in NY, animated in Brooklyn (by Augenblick Studios best known for Wondershowzen), and keyed in Toronto. The scripts include every detail you see on the show, down to posters on the walls of locations. Maria Bamford will guest star in the upcoming season.
Discussion: It makes such a difference when you have a table of comedians up there. Randy Pearlstein did an amazing job moderating, throwing out jokes and insights left and right. Little more on him: He wrote Cabin Fever and teaches at Rugters, who knew? Second to Pearlstein is Kurt Metzger who stole the show by treating the panel as a stand up gig, even launching into some crowd work at one point. “I can’t tell if you’re a Jedi or escaped from Afghanistan.” Regarding Standards and Practices battles he says, “I couldn’t stick my dick in a product that advertises with us.” They rounded things out with an entertaining fan trivia game. 
One rude fan asked if Nick Swardson was going to be here for his panel (which was following), not cool dude. Ugly Americans airs Wednesdays at 10:30 on Comedy Central.
