Not Safe with Nikki Glaser – extended for an additional ten first season episodes, Not Safe, currently airing Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m., features self-proclaimed “curious perv” Nikki Glaser and is a destination to discover, ogle, and laugh about all things sex through a fun, frank, fast-paced show with panel discussion, field pieces, and social experiments that is equal parts hilarious and titillating. First season guests have included comedians T.J. Miller, Chris Hardwick, Grace Helbig and Kristen Schaal, among others, who joke, learn, and share their personal stories about sex and relationships.

Review – renewed for a third and final season, Review follows life reviewer Forrest MacNeil (played by Andy Daly) who avoids the boring subjects like film, food or art, instead opting for the tough subjects like joining the mile high club, living life according to the Magic 8 Ball, and even leading a cult.
