The Queens of Broad City are broadening their horizons. Comedy Central confirms the fan-favorite comedy duo of Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer will end the series with a fifth and final season in 2019, but already have new TV projects on the horizon.
Now that comedian T.J. Miller has been formally accused of sexual assault, additional women are stepping up to share their experiences. Both an adult film star, and transgender film critic reveal damning encounters with the Silicon Valley star, while Comedy Central cancels Miller’s alien puppet series, The Gorburger Show.
Like John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight, The Daily Show is settling in for the long haul. Comedy Central confirms Trevor Noah has extended his contract through at least 2022, with the the addition of annual year-end specials.
For every advancement in modern convenience, there must also come obvious flaws. Alexa and Google Home owners may have learned this the hard way with South Park’s Season 21 premiere, as the numerous jokes about Alexa responses naturally set off the devices in viewers’ own homes.
South Park may have opted to skew less political in Season 21, but that doesn’t mean Matt Stone and Trey Parker will shy away from current(ish) events. Our first clip from the new season picks up where Charlottesville left off, as certain South Park townsfolk defend Confederate history.
Like most, South Park had to readjust in the wake of 2016’s election, and decided to simplify. Now, creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker reveal that Season 21 will do away with last year’s staples altogether, including a Trumped-up Garrison and those meme-able “Member Berries.”
Just when you thought the end of Game of Thrones Season 7 might cut you a break from must-see shows, in swoops fall TV with dozens upon dozens of new and returning TV series; enough to drive your DVR to self-immolation. Join us for a sneak peek!
If ever you lament that South Park occupies a brief window of Comedy Central each year, you’re in for a surprise. Stan, Kyle, Cartman, Kenny and the rest will take over the network this year with an eight-day marathon of almost every episode, leading right into the Season 21 premiere.
It was only last week we learned that Ilana and Abbi’s Broad City return was delayed even further to September, and it seems the boys of South Park followed suit. The impressive twenty-first season will wait the better part of a month, premiering in September instead.
Few would accuse South Park of losing its edge, though the yearly cycle understandably has trouble keeping up with current events (at their pace these days). That’s why Season 21 will get back to basics, as creator Trey Parker wants to ditch Trump in favor of “Cartman dressing up like a robot and [screwing] with Butters.”
Whether or not the South Park brand of satire had lost any steam in Season 20, the most recent run of episodes hit a (figurative) wall when the 2016 Election swung against the result they’d written for. Creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have a few months to re-energize, but now hint they’ll skew less topical in Season 21, saying “what was actually happening was way funnier than anything we could come up with.”
If ever there were a time for President Obama to show his anger, Key & Peele’s Luther would be it. Watch the pair make their final appearance on The Daily Show, as Luther tries (and fails spectacularly) to keep his anger toward the new President-Elect in check.
South Park may have been confident enough in its election predictions for 2008 and 2012 to use their quick turnaround on Wednesday’s episodes, but 2016 may be their biggest challenge yet. Following an early call for “The Very First Gentleman,” tonight’s South Park has been reworked into “Oh, Jeez” with a new clip.
These days, it'd take at least two years to watch only only one season's worth of #PeakTV, a quarter of which won't even be around a second year. You’d need some sort of absurd television guidance periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you' we've put together an in-depth look at 30 major must-see premieres kicking off as early as August 31.
Come, wrap some barbed wire around your bats and grab a coffee in Stars Hollow, as we descend into the madness that is Fall TV 2016!
