The first season featured 13 episodes and became the top rated television show in the 10:30 PM time slot on Wednesday nights in the male 18 to 34 year old demographic that Comedy Central wanted to reach. On the heels of the extremely popular first season, the second season was just as successful. However, the show did not survive after the second season. Dave Chappelle abruptly left for  Africa.
