Gold Mine of Mencia

Looks like Comedy Central is happy with Mind of Mencia and its star Carlos Mencia, the network's unintentional replacement for Dave Chappelle.

... well, relatively speaking; it only scored a fraction of Chappelle's Show's ratings, but still...

The network is signing the comedian to a big-time multi-platforrm deal. It includes a renewal of his hit series, a one-hour stand-up special for the cable network, and gig hosting a 30-date "Comedy Central live" comedy tour.

Also forthcoming: an uncensored DVD of season one of Mind.

... still, it's unlikely the sales will match those of the first two seasons Chappelle's Show, which set records...

The show's second season will debut in March.
