Another six specs will be shot this year and run in 2010.

Included in that latter round will be one from Jeff Dunham, who’s “Very Special Christmas Special” drew Comedy Central’s biggest aud ever last year with 6.6 million viewers. Separately, Dunham signed his own pact with the net recently that includes a series, specials, a DVD release and touring.

Deal with Levity mandates that at least eight of these specials will also be released on DVD.
