CollegeHumor just announced the hiring of Sam Grossman, a former Director of Development for MTV and Comedy Central, as their new Senior Vice President of Development. Grossman, who's worked on Human Giant and on programming for the Onion and the Gregory Brothers, will spearhead "the development of original long form content for both online and television." The hire definitely signals a push into TV for CollegeHumor, whose CollegeHumor Show ran for one season on MTV and who are also currently producing a movie with Glenn Howerton and Ben Schwartz. Internet comedy: not just on the Internet anymore.
