Both IT Crowd and Peep Show win news series in 2010....

Channel Four, in spite of its well-reported financial ‘challenges', has been busy recommissioning a pair of its most popular comedy series. And we're really rather pleased about it.

First up, there's going to a fourth series of The IT Crowd. Writer Graham Linehan has ended his two most popular shows to date before The IT Crowd at three series - Black Books and Father Ted - but he'd earlier said that he hoped a fourth run of the show would get the green light. The new series is set to air next year.

Meanwhile, even though the sixth series of Mitchell & Webb's Peep Show hasn't yet been broadcast - it's on the schedules for the summer - a seven series has got the green light, for broadcast in 2010. Good news...

Good news. Two examples of good recent comedies. I'm wondering if Peep Show will have much life in it though (good though it is.)
