College Humor inked a six-episode deal with MTV last month, according to a brief report in MediaPost , and a pilot from the College Humor creators will air this fall. I interviewed CHTV Original Content Director Sam Reich and senior writer Amir Blumenfeld at the College Humor offices last week.
We didn't get any details (on the record) about what the MTV shows will be about, but we'll be sure to blog as soon as they're announced.
CHTV, owned by Barry Diller's IAC, publishes both standalone skits called "one-offs" and themed series like Hardly Working, a largely improvised show shot in the College Humor offices. College Humor publishes an average of one original video and nine user-generated videos a day, according to Reich.
Amir does his best to turn our interview into a straight man/funny man routine similar to the one on the web comedy show he co-creates, "Jake and Amir."

Editor's Note: This is really funny -- great editing job by David. Our earnest associate producer Kelsey tried to report this story straight. Tough assignment. Amir's definition of "unique" visitors is really hysterical. Check it out. AP

Jake and Amir work at College Humor and run a serial web show on the side. Their show, Jake And Amir, runs twice a week and has seen enormous traction on their website, Vimeo and College Humor, however, they have yet to syndicate it to other video hosting sites. Their comedic style is one of a kind. They have a unique and predictable approach to filming when they are at their desks, however, when filming at other locations they effectively spice it up. They are a riot! I look forward to watching their shows and seeing what wacky and fun ideas they come up with.
CollegeHumor finally announced the details of its new show, "The College Humor Show," which will debut on MTV Feb. 8. The office comedy will be a longer version of the site's "Hardly Working" series, which executive producer Sam Reich told us off the record back in August. You can read Chris Albrecht's story about the news today over at NewTeeVee.
I previously interviewed CollegeHumor's Sam Reich and Amir Blumenfeld about the site and republished the interview today, along with the show's trailer. The interview is mostly a straight man/funny man routine similar to those on the "Jake and Amir" series, but there's some useful insight into the CollegeHumor production process as well. You can read my original post here.
