This week in comedy: Chris Rock is playing an all new tune on his tambourine. On Tuesday, Rock will be releasing an extended cut of his 2018 Netflix special, Tamborine. Filled with jokes that hadn’t been previously released, the special will also feature new behind the scenes footage and interviews with Rock. This is the first time Netflix has done anything with one of their specials, and if it’s successful, we imagine we’ll see something similar in the future with other specials.
Also this week, A Little Late w/Lilly Singh is back for a second season. As we reported on previously, the show went through some major production changes in between seasons. For starters, nearly all the writing staff has been replaced. Additionally, the show has forgone the traditional studio setup in favor of taking over a house for production. The show returns tonight after Late Night w/Seth Meyers.
Plus, Kyra Sedgwick has a new series on ABC with Call Your Mother. The series follows Sedgwick as a mom who, after having both of her kids move out on their own, is bored and decides to travel cross country to be with them. Rounding out the cast is Rachel Sennott, Joey Bragg, and Patrick Brammall. Call Your Mother premieres Wednesday night on ABC.
And finally, Hulu has picked up a series from James Lafferty and Stephen Colletti (both alums of One Tree Hill). The show, Everyone is Doing Great, follows two actors who are fresh off of a hit vampire series. The official synopsis reads, “Five years after their show has ended, they lean on each other as they awkwardly navigate the perils of life and love in a late coming-of-age.”
