In advance of the upcoming television upfronts and the ending of the 2012-2013 television season, many networks are in the middle of confirming pilots, cancelling shows, and renewing others. Rather than you sifting through all the noise, we’re going to come up with some cheat sheets to what’s happening to your favorite, and non-favorite comedy on television. Let’s break down each TV network for you. Check out the new comedies that might catch your eye, your favorite shows that are returning, and the ones cancelled to be forever gone into dark TV abyss.
Here’s what’s going on with NBC. Read More
The headline of this post pretty much makes this the best thing of the day. Patton Oswalt has a guest cameo on Parks And Recreation this Thursday. How to they utilize the comedian on the show? Probably in the best way possible by letting him make a fillibuster speech in front of the Pawnee council because he has things to say – about what? Star Wars VII, Avengers, Justice League, and other comic book / sci-fi details we must know. If only C-Span was this friggin’ interesting when old white decide to do on filibuster tears for hours. Watch the extended cut and take in all 8 minutes of Oswalt’s improv’d tear and it’s a good one.
Nick Offerman is already off to a busy year. When he’s not portraying the mustachioed meat eating Ron Swanson on NBC’s Parks and Recreation he’s touring the country with his American Ham comedy show, or he’s working on or promoting a film like the recently released independent comedy Somebody Up There Likes Me, or he’s legitimately making things out of wood, or he’s hanging out with his wife, famed stage and screen actress Megan Mullally.
And when he’s not doing one or a mixture of all those things, he finds times to talk with idiots like us. And on that note, check out our interview below. Special thanks to Mr. Offerman for taking the time to speak with us. We follow the rules of Ron Swanson’s pyramid of greatness in great detail so it was an honor.
I wanted to tell you that Somebody Up There Likes Me looks fantastic.
Thank you. I’m really proud of it and I’m so excited to be releasing a little indie movie, the like of which I’ve shot a great many. But we have this wonderful new arena of “video on demand” and I’m really excited to see how a film can play when usually, if anything, you get a little art house release in theaters, but now the whole world can see it at the same time so I’m excited to see if we can do some business.

With the recent re-branding of the G4 network into The Esquire network it was only a matter of time before they started to make moves for programming that would act as the name of the brand, and it turns out Jimmy Fallon will play a part in that re-branding.
Beginning April 24th Late Night with Jimmy Fallon will begin airing on the network five nights a week at 7pm. This doesn’t mean that Fallon will be leaving NBC late night, what it means is that the network will begin to syndicate Fallon’s show on a week delay after original air date, becoming the first syndicated cable late night TV show.
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon joins recent acquisitions by the new male-skewing network that include Parks And Recreation and Party Down. Esquire picking up shows like these definitely pulls for the male-skewing demo they are going for. Read More
The 30th birthday is one that I have yet to experience yet I know it’s freaking out many of the ladies I know. From being married to having children, there is something life changing that is supposed to happen when someone turns the big “three oh,” right?

Aziz Ansari has given us many comedic gifts of the years and he is one person who consistently makes me laugh. Be it either onParks and Recreation or live at the Just For Laughs – Chicago, Aziz knows how to turn up the charm and quickly win over an audiences. In spirit to the funny mans birthday, here are multiple clips to get you laughing on his special day. HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY Aziz! Read More
Tom Haverford, the swaged out worker in the Pawneee Parks And Recreation department portrayed by Aziz Ansari may not be the most athletic person in the world but he has a way with words.
First he brought us Tom Haverfooods but fresh off the heels of last week’s episode, Haverford put together his definitions for basketball terms. For example, to him Traveling is, “Often times it’s the obvious definition that’s the correct one, so I’m gonna go ahead and say: expanding your horizons via airplanes or luxury train cars.”
Animation Domination High-Definition, or ADHD is FOX’s attempt to sway the stoner eyeballs from watching late night cartoons on [adult swim] with blocks of animated 15 minute shows. It’s flagship show, Axe Cop is based on the popular web comic (created by a 5 year old kid) is set to premiere this July. What does Axe Cop do you ask? He carries around an axe and rides on the back of a dinosaur, which of course, is decked out in twin gatling guns (you gotta love 5 year olds). Here’s preview footage of the show with the cop voice supplied by Parks And Recreation’s Nick Offerman.
If, for some reason your brain can’t comprehend all of the facts I just threw at you, just remember this… Nick Offerman, cop with an axe, dinosaur with machine guns is his transportation, stoners. There, you got it.
