The girls of Broad City will stick around through at least 2018, thanks to Comedy Central’s early renewals, but that hasn’t made the wait for Season 3 any less tourturous. Now, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are back for the first real Season 3 trailer, cruising Grindr, giving “Yas Queen” to Cynthia Nixon, and slowly but surely becoming one another.

We’re still a month out from the hotly-anticipated return of Broad City Season 3, but the new 2016 run is at least starting to take some shape. To that end, a punchy first teaser for Abbi and Ilana has emerged, along with additional guest stars, and a sense of what Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton will get up to with her fellow Queens.
Break out your finest “YAS QUEEN,” the ladies of Comedy Central aren’t going anywhere just yet. Not only do Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer have a two-season Broad City renewal to celebrate, but so too will Amy Schumer stay Inside for a fifth season to come in 2016.
Broad City Queens Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer will hold court until Season 3’s February premiere, but might just abdicate (or obliterate) the throne thereafter. A new tweet has Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton herself hanging with the girls on set, not to mention executive producer Amy Poehler. Bow down, Bingo Bronson.
Ever one to steer into topical controversy within a week of its airing, South Park will pull out all the stops on gun control with this week’s nineteenth season finale “PC Principal Final Justice.” The horror of a politically correct South Park infested with ads will finally come to a close, but judging by the first clip, no one may be left standing to enjoy it.
It’s difficult to say if Trevor Noah has found his particular Daily Show groove after ascending the throne from Jon Stewart in September, but where Noah hasn’t generally shied away from challenging guests, at least one punch has been pulled. Following controversial announcements of a Chris Brown interview, The Daily Show appears to have quietly canceled the appearance.
The ladies of Broad City kept us in fix with their “Hack Into” web shorts, but the real deal will return soon enough. Comedy Central has officially set a February Season 3 premiere for Abbi and Ilana, while the boys of Workaholics, and many more have their 2016 debut dates as well.
FOX’s Futurama famously traded in nerdy math and science gags, but did you know multiple writers had actual PhDs and Harvard diplomas, even creating a real-life proof for one episode? Or that Simpsons creator Matt Groening nearly pulled the plug over FOX’s nerves about Bender? Set your cryo-tubes for the 31st century, as the 32nd episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?’ blasts off with the Planet Express crew for some sci-fi facts from Futurama.
The nineteenth season of South Park hasn’t been as politically charged in its last few outings, even as the revered Comedy Central cartoon continues its experiment with PC culture and continuity, but this Wednesday will land right back in the hot seat. Following Donald Trump, body shaming and yaoi, South Park will next take on issues of police brutality for Wednesday’s “Naughty Ninjas.”
After the first episode of a new show, especially the first episode of an old show with a new face, everyone is ready to deem it either fantastic or awful. Did Trevor Noah ruin Jon Stewart’s legacy? Is The Daily Show a completely different beast? Should we stop watching now that some random unknown guy is hosting? The answer to all of those is no, or at least, we have no idea yet. But after watching the young South African comedian’s debut in Stewart’s chair on Monday night, it’s refreshing to say he did a pretty good job, and only time will tell how well he can carry the show.
