The trials and tribulations of Chris Gethard’s public access show, The Chris Gethard Show has been a long one, but not it appears there’s finally been some resolution. The show was given a pilot order, and eventual non-pickup by Comedy Central. Sending Gethard and crew back to the drawing board. Then at the end of last year, Gethard announced that his public access show The Chris Gethard Show found a home on cable television but nothing more than that. Then, during last night’s public access airing, Gethard revealed that the Fusion Network was the cable network that ordered ten episodes of TCGS and they’d air this April.
Fusion has been putting a lot of comedians on its airwaves since launching last year. Including a puppet show with Paul F. Tompkins and a live news show that featured Yannis Pappas (the latter recently being canceled after Pappas’ departure a few months back).
