The Sun's David Zurawik talks about the return of Drunk History to Comedy Central on WYPR FM's 'Take on Television.'

Comedy Central today renewed "Drunk History" for a third season.

The series, which features drunken performers recounting stories from our national past, is created by Lutherville native Derek Waters. This past week's epsiode featured three tales from Baltimore's past.

Through the first four epsiodes of Season 2, the series' viewership is up 26 percent among adults 18-49. It's up 17 percent among all viewers.

In its timeslot, Tuesdays at 10 p.m., it is the highest-rated original series in TV with men 18-34 years of age.

Last season, "Drunk History" averaged one million viewers a week.
