South Park will somehow tackle both Brett Kavanaugh and The Problem With Apu simultaneously

It’s only been a couple episodes, but South Park seems pretty serious about tackling hot-button issues this season.

Hulu finally plays nice with Viacom, gets exclusive rights to Daria and Nathan For You

Hulu as a service has always been defined by its “buts,” as in, “it’s like Netflix but it has commercials” or “you can watch all of your favorite shows but it doesn’t have everything from Nickelodeon or Comedy Central.” That latter point is finally changing, though, thanks to a new deal between Hulu and Viacom—the…

Comedy Central's 2018 Clusterfest will finally take you inside Andy Samberg's stomach

Comedy Central’s Clusterfest tends to have a loose theme based around one of its headliners, with last year’s festival featuring Jerry Seinfeld on stage and Seinfeld-themed “comedy attractions” off the stage. This year is going a bit weirder with it, at least based off of the fest’s announcement video which announces…

Drunk History’s Derek Waters on how the show turns boozy ramblings into TV gold

Drunk History’s format is a winner: Take a famous comedian, get them drunk, film them struggling their way through a historical story, and use their slurred monologue as an audio track over which other famous actors lip sync and reenact the story. It’s a simple, effective premise but one that takes a lot of work to…

The Daily Show and The Opposition will air live after Trump's first State Of The Union

There are any number of reasons that a person might have for looking forward to Donald Trump’s first State Of The Union address on January 30—including the likelihood that it’ll be a disaster or that it’ll give them a good excuse to completely disengage from TV and the internet for a night—but Comedy Central is now…
