SOUTH PARK (Wednesday, Sept.14 at 10 p.m. ET)
Much’s favourite group of foul-mouthed fourth graders return in a new season of SOUTH PARK, taking hilarious stabs at pop culture and giving their politically incorrect views on current events. The series, embarking on its 20th season, is known for its unbelievably immediate responses to world events. No matter what’s happening in the news cycle, this new season is sure to bring up-to-the-minute news and pop culture icons to the town of South Park for social commentary and good old-fashioned ridicule.
LEGENDS OF CHAMBERLAIN HEIGHTS (Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 10:30 p.m. ET)
This new 30-minute animated comedy follows Jamal (Quinn Hawking), Grover (Josiah Johnson), and Milk (Michael Starrbury) – Chamberlain Heights’ biggest legends…at least in their own minds. These three freshmen tackle everyday high school problems, though nothing can bring these self-proclaimed legends down. The series, which has already received a second-season renewal, is from veteran SIMPSON’S artist Brad Ableson, retired UCLA basketball players and sports producers Quinn Hawking (ESPN) and Josiah Johnson (NFL Network), writer Michael Starrbury (The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister & Pete), and Bento Box Entertainment (BOB’S BURGERS).
TOSH.0 (Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 10 p.m. ET)
Currently in its eighth season, and already renewed for a ninth, hit series TOSH.0 first premiered in 2009, featuring comedian Daniel Tosh’s razor-sharp humor and biting commentary. The weekly, topical series delves into all aspects of the Internet and the social media landscape from the absolutely absurd to the incredibly ingenious. Each episode includes a "CeWEBrity Profile" or a "Web Redemption" where Tosh gives subjects of notorious viral videos a second chance to redeem themselves from the embarrassment with which they have become synonymous.
DRUNK HISTORY (Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 10:30 p.m. ET)
DRUNK HISTORY returns with a new batch of liquored-up history lessons. This season, viewers are transported back in time to hang with the founding fathers as Broadway marvel Lin-Manuel Miranda narrates the rivalry between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Paget Brewster (ANOTHER PERIOD) narrates First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt (Busy Phillips, ANGIE TRIBECA) and Soviet soldier Lyudmila Pavlichenko’s (Mae Whitman, PARENTHOOD) friendship and fight for women’s rights. Allan McLeod (YOU’RE THE WORST) explains the dispute about whether British actor William Macready (Jack McBrayer, THE JACK AND TRIUMPH SHOW) or American actor Edwin Forrest (David Koechner, ANOTHER PERIOD) was the better thespian.
COMEDY BANG! BANG! (Thursday, September 29 at 10 p.m. ET)
COMEDY BANG! BANG! returns this September for its fifth and final season. Host Scott Aukerman welcomes funnyman Weird Al Yankovic as co-host and bandleader for another season of wacky interviews and hilarious comedy sketches. Guest stars gracing the couch for the show’s final ten episodes include Matt Walks (VEEP), Kaley Cuoco (THE BIG BANG THEORY), Gillian Jacobs (LOVE, COMMUNITY), Paul F. Tompkins (BOJACK HORSEMAN), and many more.
