And you think some comedians churn through too much material? Bravo has agreed to give Kathy Griffin not only a fifth season of Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, but also two one-hour stand-up specials for the network to be filmed "during her current nationwide tour" (emphasis mine, quote comes from Broadcasting & Cable). How many stand-up comedians do you know who have enough jokes to fill two separate specials on one tour? Then again, when your material consists primarily on topical observations based on encounters with celebrities, I suppose her TV show (and her hosting gig for Bravo's A-List Awards) will give her enough fodder to feed her hungry fans.
