Comedy Central: 'Inside Amy Schumer' - yes, she's from Rockville Centre - is a hit
"Inside Amy Schumer," which bowed Monday night on Comedy Central, bowed very well indeed. So well, the network says it's a hit. Oh, did I mention Schumer's from Rockville Centre?
Amy is. From Rockville Centre. A very nice town, by the way.
Back to the hit. Per the press release:
"The premiere play of 'Inside Amy Schumer' (10:30-11:00 p.m.) drew 1.6 million total viewers and 1.2 million Adult 18-49 viewers (1.1 Adult 18-49 rating) and rated extremely well among young men with a 2.4 Men 18-34 rating and a 2.8 Men 18-24 rating."
[Per me: Extremely well among young men? Could the Schumer Humor include jokes about sex? I dunno...didn't see, but you can draw your own conclusions,]
And per Diane Werts, my esteemed colleague who reviewed this for Newsday on Monday:
"Even when she pushes me too far, I'm eager to hear what Schumer has to say about hot-button topics others avoid. Her shrewd, straightforward perspective and her semisweet, offhand attitude make her reflections fresh and relatable."
