This week in comedy: Amber Ruffin is getting her own show. The Amber Ruffin Show is hitting Peacock on Friday, Executive Produced by her former boss Seth Meyers. While we don’t know a ton about the show as of yet, judging from the trailer, the show will feature your standard monologue, sketches, and more, all done within Ruffin’s unique comedic perspective. This move is the first talk show for Peacock, and we can’t wait to see what they do with it!
Also this week, we see Chris Rock step into a highly anticipated dramatic role on FX’s Fargo. This season finds Rock as the lead in the series, which is now set in circa 1950’s Kansas City that is “ home to warring crime syndicates, one run by Italian immigrants, the other by African Americans.” Fargo returns on Sunday.
Plus, Fox’s animation domination is back this Sunday. Everyone’s favorite animated comedy series, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, and Bless the Harts are back for their 32nd, 19th, 11th, and 2nd season on the network. And given that animation is the one factor of the entertainment system that wasn’t badly interrupted due to COVID, we imagine everything will be returning as scheduled.
