NBC orders fourth season of Last Comic Standing

Even though the third season was somewhat of a dud, NBC has ordered a fourth season of Last Comic Standing.

That third-season “[q]uickie production was a predictable ratings disappointment, and ‘Comic’ was not renewed for a summer 2005 run,” Variety reports. But “NBC reality chief Craig Plestis remained a supporter of the skein, however, and the net has now decided to give the standup showcase another turn at the mic.”

Jay Mohr may or may not return as host; he “was vocal in his displeasure about the net’s handling of the skein’s third season,” according to Variety.
