HBO has ordered a second season of The Ricky Gervais Show, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Based on his popular series of manic podcasts with frequent collaborator Stephen Merchent (Extras) and oddball sidekick Karl Pilkington, the animated series is hardly a hit yet, averaging only about 180,000 viewers per episode.
