TV Land has given second-season orders to its popular new comedy series the Jim Gaffigan Show and Impastor.

Performing strongly in their first seasons, an average of four million viewers tuned into Gaffigan on its premiere nights on TV Land and Nick at Nite, while Impastor attracted a weekly average of 2.8 million viewers.

In addition, both cable network series saw gains over channel prime average, with Gaffigan up 100% and Impastor up 29% among adults 25-54.

"We're really proud of these shows that represent the new TV Land," said Keith Cox, EVP of development and original programming at TV Land. "They have quality writing and great casts, and we're excited to move on to season two for both."

The Jim Gaffigan Show is a single-camera comedy starring and inspired by the real life of comedian, actor and New York Times best-selling author Jim Gaffigan, chronicling one man's struggle in New York City to find a balance between fatherhood, stand-up comedy and an insatiable appetite. Impastor is a dark comedy from Christopher Vane that follows Buddy Dobbs, a slacker on the run from his gambling debt. He seizes an unlikely opportunity to steal a man's identity, and ends up following that man's path and posing as the new gay pastor of a small, tight-knit town.
