For all the ups and downs of last night's Emmy broadcast, from 'Mad Men's' epic shutout, to 'Homeland' and 'Modern Family's' sweeping victories, one thought certainly crossed our minds: where's 'South Park'? Now preparing to pick up its 16th season on Comedy Central, have Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman fallen so far from the public zeitgeist? Check out the new clip from midseason premiere "Sarcastaball" to see if they get it back!
For a show where the episodes are made ad minimum 6 days in advance of airing, it sure seems like 'South Park' seasons go by quicker and quicker these days. Not only that, but 16 seasons in, and the boys Matt Stone and Trey Parker show no signs of stopping just yet! So with 'South Park' season 16 already eight episodes in the can, exactly when will things pick up with the second half? And what else does Comedy Central have lined up for the fall?
In what seems to be part of a maneuver to convert the whole of the internet into TV, it seems today that Comedy Central is taking yet another revered web series to pilot. Previously, we learned that 'Drunk History' would get its own show, and blog 'Bad Advice From My Brother' would be developed, and now it seems 'Tiny Apartment' is moving on up as well.
Huzzah, America! After being around seemingly forever, it would seem that 'The Daily Show' will be around quite a while longer, with its current and arguably best host to date in place. More than that, its sister show 'The Colbert Report' will be sticking around as well, but for how long? Does either series have a shelf life, or does Comedy Central plan to keep them around indefinitely?
We're only 49 days away from the premiere of all-new 'Futurama' on Comedy Central. How do we know that? Why, because the network yesterday began its special 50-day countdown to the season 7 premiere on Thursday, June 20, and every day serves up a new look, clip, or artwork to keep 'Futurama' fans going faster than the speed of light? So what's first up?
Zach Galifianakis' awkward celebrity interview webseries, 'Between Two Ferns,' is getting its own Comedy Central special. Scott Aukerman, who directed many of the popular webisodes, made the announcement on his "Comedy Bang Bang" podcast, giving fair warning to potential celebrity victims, everywhere
Hot on the heels of the news that Comedy Central had begun development of a TV series based on the popular Funny Or Die shorts 'Drunk History,' the cable network is at it again by putting to speed another show derived from a popular internet phenomenon. But this one might turn out more 'Sh*t My Dad Says' than comedy gold, if not handled carefully.
Throw away your history books, and start breaking out the glasses, we're all about to get a real education! A wildly popular (and very educational) web series may just make the leap to full prime-time when Comedy Central picks up a new comedy pilot this fall.
