“Billy On The Street” Renewed For Fifth Season

As the fourth season of Funny Or Die’s Billy On The Street came to a close last week after its first year on TruTV, the network announced the comedic ambush game show will be sticking around for a fifth season at the Television Critics Association’s press tour yesterday. TruTV has ordered ten episodes scheduled to air later this year along with season renewals and pilot orders to other series. The chaotic quiz show hosted by Billy Eichner has quickly risen to fame within the past couple of seasons not only because of his comical, vociferous and uninhibited hosting style, but also due to the array of celebrity guest stars who have played alongside Eichner including Joan Rivers, Will Ferrell, Andy Cohen and Chris Pratt. Last year, Eichner and the show’s producers were nominated for an Emmy for “Outstanding Short-Format Live Action Entertainment Program” for a short featuring Michelle Obama, Big Bird and his favorite contestant, Elena.

Check out a few highlights from season four in the clip below and stay tuned for the fifth season of Billy On The Street on TruTV towards the end of the year.
