Splitsider's Fall Comedy Preview 2013: TV

It's going to be an exciting fall TV season this time around. We have the brand new cable network FXX, SNL's biggest transitional season in nearly two decades with five new cast members replacing several departing ones, Bill Cosby's first televised standup special in 30 years, two new late night shows (TBS's The Pete Holmes Show and Comedy Central's @Midnight with Chris Hardwick), the final seasons of Eastbound & Down and How I Met Your Mother, a return to the sitcom world for Michael J. Fox and Robin Williams, and The Simpsons' landmark 25th season featuring a Futurama crossover. As if all that weren't enough, there are also a slew of new shows. [...]

It’s that time of year again. The new fall TV season! When the networks trot out a shaggy bunch of new shows, and in six months, half of them will be left. Can you guess which shows will make it and which shows will turn into a foggy memory a la last fall’s quickly-cancelled comedies like Man Up, How to Be a Gentleman, and Free Agents?

On the whole, it’s a broader batch of sitcoms than we’ve seen in years past, with NBC, home to critically-acclaimed but underwatched comedies like 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, and Community, making a clear attempt to pursue sillier, more accessible shows in order [...]

A Guide to the New Crop of Network Comedies

The broadcast networks canceled a whopping 18 comedies this year, which means there are a lot of holes to fill with new sitcoms come fall, especially with NBC and ABC, the two networks that canceled the most comedies. Among this season's highlights are Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, the first series Tina Fey has created since 30 Rock; Marry Me, starring Casey Wilson and Ken Marino and created by Happy Endings' David Caspe; and standup and SNL writer John Mulaney's self-titled sitcom, which will see the light of day this fall after nearly two years in development. We organized all the season's new comedies into the following guide:

It’s that time of year again. The networks will be unveiling their new fall schedules in the coming weeks, and there’s no shortage of comedy this time around. The crop of new shows isn't as strong as it's been in past years, but a lot of returning series are stepping up to the plate by setting some pretty ambitious goals for themselves. Get ready for Rob McElhenny's impressive weight gain on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, the introduction of Ron Swanson's first ex-wife Tammy and his mother (also named Tammy) on Parks and Rec, Omar from The Wire playing a new professor on Community, the long-awaited return of Beavis [...]

Splitsider's Fall Comedy Preview 2013: Movies

The fall is typically a slow time for big screen comedies, with Oscar-baity dramas and smaller releases filling multiplexes during the autumnal months. This year, however, we have a pair of highly-anticipated blockbuster comedies closing out the year around Christmastime: Ben Stiller's latest as a director, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty; and Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's long-awaited Anchorman sequel. In addition to those big releases, there's other stuff to look forward to like Johnny Knoxville's Borat-style Jackass spinoff Bad Grandpa, a movie where Ken Marino has a monster up his butt, and Will Forte's dramatic debut.

Splitsider's Fall Comedy Preview: Movies

In the movie world, fall is typically not a great time for humor, as the scant number of comedies that come out during the season are overshadowed by serious awards contenders from well-known directors and big-budget franchises. This fall will see high-profile, non-comedy releases like Spielberg’s Abe Lincoln biopic, Tarantino’s Django Unchained, and the first part in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy, plus further installments in the James Bond, Twilight, and Paranormal Activity sagas. Despite all these serious movies hogging the spotlight, there are still a few comedies of note coming our way this autumn, including Judd Apatow’s next directorial effort This is 40, Bill Murray taking another stab at [...]

Fall Comedy Preview: Movies

The fall movie season is here with a diverse batch of comedies headed our ways over the next few months. The movies that come out this time of year tend to be a little more adult and thoughtful and not typically as loud and brash as the teen-friendly titles that populate marquees in the summertime. It's a mixed bag as far as the quality of these upcoming films goes, with the best-looking movies coming from indie auteurs Alexander Payne and Jason Reitman, as well as Apatow henchmen Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, and Jason Segel.

Let's see what we're in for, shall we?
