Comedy Central sets its summer schedule release dates including Why? With Hannibal Buress and Another Period
Comedy Central has announced their summer schedule including two premiere dates for two new shows. Another Period, stars the original out of touch reality family, a turn-of-the-century historical and satirical scripted series that follows the insanely ridiculous and debaucherous life of the Bellacourts, who have more servants than relatives and whose days are filled with money, sex, drugs and more money. Another Period centers on the Bellacourt sisters, Lillian (Natasha Leggero) and Beatrice (Riki Lindhome), who only care about being rich and becoming super famous, which is a lot harder in 1902. The show launches June 23 at 10:30p. Also premiering is Why? With Hannibal Buress. The show celebrates Buress’ hilariously brilliant off-beat voice and point-of-view. If it’s in the zeitgeist, Buress will address it, providing his unique perspective on each week’s topic, answering the burning questions on his mind through stand-up, filmed segments, man-on-the-street interviews and special, in-studio guests. Why? With Hannibal Buress will be a weekly, half-hour series shot in front of a studio audience and each episode will tape the same week it airs. The series is executive produced by Buress, Jeff Stilson (The Chris Rock Show, Da Ali G Show) and Dave Becky. Here’s the complete line-up Read More

Andy Samberg and tennis greats star in the fictional sports documentary 7 Days In Hell on HBO July 11
This outrageous sports pseudo-documentary brings together Andy Samberg and Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) for a look back at a pair of fictional players from the not-too-distant past, who played on the longest and greatest tennis match of all time. A seven-day, five-set marathon to be exact that took literally everything out of them. In addition to highlights and lowlights from the match, the special looks back at the lives and careers of the competitors: Aaron Williams (Samberg), a hyper-malcontent, and Charles Poole (Harington), a dim-witted prodigy who carried England’s hopes for a tennis champion on his shoulders. 7 Days In Hell will also star Karen Gillan (Doctor Who, Guardians of the Galaxy), Michael Sheen (Underworld, Masters of Sex), Will Forte (The Last Man on Earth, American Dad), Fred Armisen (Portlandia, Zoolander 2) and Lena Dunham (Girls). Tennis stars John McEnroe and Serena Williams will also appear. Love-Love.

For some reason Kyle Mooney’s Bruce Chandling sketch always seems to be cut from Saturday Night Live. But that’s okay, because we have the internet where we can see the failed comedian character at work. Case in point, last night’s sketch where Louis C.K. accidentally ends up stealing Chandling’s material. Resulting in another great re-imagining of Louie’s opening sequence. Oh, and Bobby Moynihan drinks ketchup.
