Santa Gets Terrifying on the 'NTSF: SD: SUV::' Christmas Special

Tonight is the NTSF: SD: SUV:: Christmas special, in which our heroes are hunted by a homicidal Santa Claus. Perfect for the kids! As executive producer Curtis Gwinn, who also directed this episode, told me, "it's sort of a Paranormal Activity meets Tim Allen's The Santa Clause. You know, classic Christmas stuff." If that alone isn't enough to sell you, check out the exclusive clip above. The whole thing airs tonight at 12:15am on Adult Swim.

NTSF: SD: SUV:: Looks Like a Dolphin-Punching Good Time

Here's a new trailer for NTSF: SD: SUV::, Paul Scheer's new CSI parody coming to Adult Swim next Thursday night at 12:15. It looks awesome and ridiculous. So many explosions, both of fire and body parts! Guns! The ripping out of hearts! Eyepatches! Paul's wig! And a pretty stellar cast tying it all together! I'm on board.

Talking to Paul Scheer About 'The League', 'NTSF', the Genius of Arsenio Hall, and More

Paul Scheer must be the comedic actor everyone can agree on because as of publication he’s appeared in shows on the following networks: MTV, Fox, Comedy Central, IFC, Adult Swim, NBC, FX, E!, HBO, ABC and Starz.

Sure, some of those are blink-and-you’ll-miss-him bit parts, but there are also plenty of starring roles, including his portrayal of Dr. Andre Nowzick on FX’s The League, as well as Trent Hauser on Adult Swim’s NTSF:SD:SUV, a show he also created.

Like many of today’s TV comedy regulars, Scheer got his start at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York. It’s become the norm for UCB talent to appear in [...]

Not In My San Diego: How 'NTSF:SD:SUV::' Has Perfectly Captured My Hometown

Like a lot of San Diegans, I’m originally from somewhere else. My family moved here when I was but a slip of a lad, however, and I’ve definitely lived here longer than anywhere else. When I first moved here at the age of 12, I hated it intensely, bristling at the intense cultural differences between suburban Los Angeles and suburban San Diego in the way only a seventh grader can. But that hatred blossomed into a weird love/hate relationship that can only be justified by the glowing eye of my television set.

Other than Simon & Simon, there haven’t been many successful TV shows set here in America’s 8th [...]

Adult Swim Picks Up Paul Scheer's NTSF: SD: SUV

Adult Swim has turned what started as a spoof commercial by Paul Scheer on Children's Hospital into its own show. Taking aim at crime procedurals in a similar way to how Children's Hospital takes on hospital dramas, National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle (NTSF: SD: SUV for short) has been picked up for 12 episodes to be written by Scheer. It all started with the above (amazing) clip, which apparently acted as a pilot and got them the entire run. I do love that we live in a time in which a 90-second video can get you a TV show, even if that 90-second clip [...]

'Childrens Hospital' and 'NTSF: SD: SUV::' Are Set to Return on July 25th

The new seasons of both Childrens Hospital and NTSF:SD:SUV:: have their premiere date: July 25th. If you'll recall, this season of Childrens Hospital should be pretty bonkers, as it's going to be set on a military base in Japan. Well, more bonkers. It was always pretty bonkers. And here's the description of the new season of NTSF:SD:SUV:::

Creator and star Paul Scheer has lined up an amazing cast of talent for a third season of furious screaming, pregnant pauses, and even more civilian casualties than last season! This year, Trent Hauser (Scheer) and his elite terrorist fighting team will employ some of the riskiest methods they’ve ever attempted [...]

The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show: Paul Scheer on Terrible Movies

Paul Scheer started a weekly podcast called "How Did This Get Made?" just to talk about bad movies with his friends, so when he was on my show I was very excited to compare notes on the worst cinema we've ever experienced. We also discuss the difference between good-bad and bad-bad, which terrible movies influenced Paul's show NTSF:SD:SUV, and the Star Trek conventions he attended as a kid.

You can listen to The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show on iTunes, JeffRubinJeffRubinShow.com, or YouTube. The iTunes version only works on Apple products (like iPhones and iTunes), but comes with pictures that illustrate what we're talking about [...]
