We'll be honest, we had no idea what to make of Will Ferrell's upcoming IFC miniseries 'The Spoils of Babylon,' crafting a fake soap-opera-esque narrative around such incredible star power as Kristen Wiig, Tobey Maguire, Jessica Alba and Ferrell himself, among others. Now, the first star-studded trailer for the project has emerged, and if anything, we're even more confused.

'SNL' vet Fred Armisen may have left the long-running, late-night comedy for good this past season, but he won't be hurting for work any time soon. IFC has granted an additional two seasons to its critically adored sketch comedy series, 'Portlandia,' to air in 2014 and 2015 respectively, but will the series come to a conclusion thereafter?
My oh my, and we thought Will Ferrell's upcoming miniseries 'The Spoils of Babylon' had enough star power between Ferrell himself, 'SNL' alum Kristen Wiig, 'The Great Gatsby''s Tobey Maguire and Haley Joel Osment. Now IFC has announced the full cast, including some new, big-name additions!
After resurrecting his career with his 'WTF' podcast, Marc Maron is now doing what he might have been asked to do two decades ago: He's anchoring a sitcom. Born partly out of his podcast and own life, his sitcom 'Maron' found a home at IFC, which seems a good fit. The first episode is shaggy, but it does capture Marc Maron fairly well, and it feels like it could grow into something great.
Earlier this week we heard the surprising news that IFC's forthcoming Funny or Die miniseries 'The Spoils of Babylon' had picked up some impressive talent atop the central Will Ferrell, bringing 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig and 'The Great Gatsby's' Tobey Maguire in to lead. Now, the production has added yet another surprising name in that of former 'Sixth Sense' star Haley Joel Osment!
IFC has continued to make a strong push into original programming, given the continued success of 'Portlandia' and the upcoming premiere of Marc Maron's self-titled 'Maron,' but its latest upcoming miniseries project has some significant star power behind it. Not only will Will Ferrell and Adam McKay produce 'The Spoils of Babylon,' but 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig and 'The Great Gatsby' star Tobey Maguire will play leading roles! Find out about 'The Spoils of Babylon' inside!
As we eagerly await the third season of IFC's quirky sketch comedy series 'Portlandia' -- or for that matter any of our favorite shows before their return -- one universal rule of TV should always be observed: no spoilers!

So what spoilers are teased in the latest clip from season 3? Find out inside, along with what Rosanne Barr will get up to in her visit! Spoilers a-plenty!
As nice as it was to have Fred and Carrie back for a brief 'Portlandia' winter special, 2013 will see the eternally weird duo back full time for 'Portlandia' season 3. The third year of IFC's quirky sketch comedy will feature an impressive number of guest stars, including the likes of Chloe Sevigny, Patton Oswalt, and several past 'SNL' stars, but why wait until the January 4 premiere date to check it out? Take a look at the first clip from 'Portlandia's third season, featuring 'SNL' star Bobby Moynihan (Drunk Uncle!) paying a visit to everyone's favorite feminist bookstore!
Portland might be known for its weirdness, '90s-era quirk, and even entire professions devoted to putting birds on things, but with all the celebrities floating through, you'd think it'd be the next Hollywood. Regardless, IFC's 'Portlandia' has managed to obtain some impressive star power in its third season, including everyone from Fred Armisen's 'SNL' castmates, to comic everyman actor Patton Oswalt! Who else is on 'Portlandia' season 3's epic list of names, and when might we see them?
Sure, our lives have all been pretty weird of late, considering the storms that flood the tri-state area one week and drench them in snow the next. Disney announces both its purchase of 'Star Wars' and a revival of 'Boy Meets World,' amid other elements that while weird, just aren't Portland weird. Thankfully, Portland weird will be back in our lives sooner than we thought, as IFC's 'Portlandia' has officially set its return, along with an advance winter special!
