    The Laugh Button guide to new Fall 2012 television comedies

    Guide To Fall Comedies

    Some people have fantasy football, we have fantasy television. Well, we don’t pick teams and make trades and such, but we do try to predict outcomes. Since the 2012 television season is upon us it’s time to check out a slew of new shows. So let’s get into the evaluation process for the 2012 season.

    NBC has the title of most new sitcoms this season. With the threat of many of its aging and ratings-starved sitcoms on the way out, it’s no wonder they’re trying to get something to stick with watchers. FOX and ABC are somewhere in the middle, making moves to build on its tentpole sitcoms and try to make bigger nights around the successes of shows like New Girl and Modern Family. This leaves CBS which, well is pretty strong across the board. They didn’t really go crazy with the new sitcoms. Besides How I Met Your Mother potentially bowing out at season’s end CBS only really worked timeslot shifts, putting the juggernaut Two And A Half Men on Thursday nights to mix it up with The Big Bang Theory and sweat NBC’s Thursday night comedy block a bit more.

    What has the best chances of sticking around? What’s on the bubble? What’s dead in the water? Read More

    Really?! They decided to make a sequel to A Christmas Story

    A Christmas Story was released 30 years ago. From the 24 hour marathon on television during the holidays to it’s completely quotable dialogue, it’s hands down one of the most beloved movies of the holiday season. You know what’s not beloved? A sequel.

    That’s right, Hollywood finally thought it was time to squeeze a few more bucks outta the franchise and make a sequel to A Christmas Story and release it this fall. Watching the trailer it appears all the parts of the movie we love are there but ya know, not nearly as great as the original. Director Brian Levant (Snow Dogs, Jingle All the Way) is on hand to keep the flick festive.

    The story revisits Ralphie and his family a few years after the events of the original film but instead of a Red Rider bb gun, Ralphie wants himself a car… teens. Read More

    Comedy just got 15% sexier: Cee Lo Green is getting into the sitcom game

    True story time. Post-Goodie Mob, pre-Gnarls Barkley Cee Lo Green was a wild beast. Not really a mainstream artists after releasing two solo albums, but a wild beast nonetheless. I caught him live during this time in his career and the most striking thing about the tattooed budda-esque man on stage was his decision to forgo a shirt altogether, squeeze into a pair of leather pants and utilize a long pink boa to accentuate his closet freakiness. Cee Lo didn’t care if you thought he was sexy, he knew he was sexy. And that ladies and gentlemen is how A) someone gets pregnant, and B) sitcoms get sexier. Read More

    Want to know who the 10 sexiest men in comedy are?

    This one is for all the ladies! **gives DJ point to the air expecting high-pitched squeals** The folks over at Nerve.com have compiled a list of who they think are the sexiest men in comedy. I was thinking that I’d have a fighting chance getting on this list but 1) I’m no comedian and 2) I’m still trying to lose all this water weight. So I guess you’ll have to oggle over these hotties as a consolation prize.

    The real question is who did they forget on this list. Amiright!?
