Watch a Season 8 Sneak Peek of 'Trailer Park Boys'

The new season of Trailer Park Boys won't be on Netflix until the fall, but for now there's this preview/round of life updates from Ricky, Julian, Bubbles, and even J-Roc. Julian runs a new bar/gym, Ricky has insulated his trailer with weed, Bubbles has started a "Shed-n-Breakfast" for kitties, and J-Roc has a new line of homemade vodka, so it sounds like things are going pretty well.

Tonight's 'Nathan for You' Looks Delightful

If you haven't been watching Comedy Central's new show Nathan for You this season, you're missing out. It's easily the best new comedy of the year. Sure, we're only three months into the year, but it's still a really great, funny show, and tonight's episode, which involves star Nathan Fielder staging a fake reality show to get women to like him, looks pretty spectacular.

Watch Brand New Footage from 'Community's Season Premiere

You still have another 27 days to wait until the Community season premiere on February 7th, but here's Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, and Jim Rash introducing some brand new footage from the first Dan Harmon-less episode, which is a Hunger Games parody. It's time to give in on the whole "resisting watching Hunger Games" thing  so that you can catch all the references in this Community episode. You have a month to get over your Hunger Games fear.

Clips from Tonight's '30 Rock' and 'Community' – This is What You're Doing Tonight

This is the last NBC Thursday night of the season. Hopefully, that's as sad for you to read as it is for me to write. In a time of non-stop media intake, it's nice to know each week there is a collection of shows, aired in succession, that will be worth dedicating a night to. Cherish these clips and these shows and these Thursday nights, before they pave paradise and put up a Dane Cook show. Clips from the 30 Rock and the other Community episodes below:

Kristen Wiig Don't Take No Catnip From No One on This Week's Portlandia

At last, Kristen Wiig's Portlandia episode is this week, as previewed in the clip above. It would be easy to see superfan Gathy as the bad guy in this clip, but honestly, if you call your band Cat Nap, aren't you sort of asking for a catnapping? They should have gone with Catnip; that way their fans would just give them a plant that would make their cat roll around on the ground for a while, and rub itself against stuff. That would be a much less entertaining role for Kristen Wiig, though, probably.

Fox Will Preview Two New Animated Shows Next Month

Fox will air sneak previews for two new animated series, Lucas Bros. Moving Co. and Golan the Insatiable, when it brings back its Saturday night ADHD block on November 23. The 15-minute previews will air between new episodes of Axe Cop and High School USA! , both of which return on November 2.

Lucas Bros. Moving Co. was created by comedy standup duo and identical twins Kenny and Keith Lucas. The plot follows the brothers starting a moving company "whose customers are often apprehensive to hire such a scrawny duo." Golan the Insatiable is about "a mighty godlord from an alternate universe who arrives in the small town of Oak Grove, where [...]

A Look Ahead at 'Archer's New Season

Archer is the best workplace sitcom on television. I suppose it's a decent spy-parody, too.

The FX animated show, pitched as "James Bond meets Arrested Development" by creator Adam Reed, enters its fourth season tonight, looking for new places to go after the third season began with a three-part pirate adventure, detoured to missions around the globe, and closed with a two-part mission in space reminiscent of James Bond in Moonraker. But all of the spy-aesthetics are secondary to the running jokes and squabbling character dynamics that make the show much more Arrested Development in nature (not to mention Jessica Walter's warped maternal dynamic with H. Jon Benjamin's titular [...]

Checking In with 'Bob's Burgers' Halfway Through Season 3

2012 was a big year for Bob's Burgers, as slowly but surely people found it on the air, on Hulu, and streaming on Netflix until, almost incredibly, the show emerged from hiatus as a rare and prized television commodity: a returning new hit comedy.

It’s really been quite a nice run for Fox development in recent years. Thanks to shows like the grower-favorite Raising Hope, the unqualified smash New Girl, and the inexplicably indomitable Seth MacFarlane Ratings Juggernaut, Fox has quietly positioned itself as perhaps the new network standard for high-quality comedies (especially given NBC’s ongoing long, slow fade to black). And perhaps no network sitcom has been so [...]

Watch the Best Friends Forever Premiere Right Now

The first episode of Best Friends Forever is online, which means you can watch it right here. C'mon, it's hump day. They don't really need you to do whatever it is you do at work.

Christmas Dinner With Archer Gets Unsurprisingly Oedipal

What I wouldn't give to be a fly on the wall at this Christmas dinner! Or an actual dinner guest, I suppose, although I wouldn't want to be Woodhouse. Poor, poor Woodhouse. His abuse will never end. More clips from the upcoming third season of Archer, starting Jan. 19, are available here.

See Aubrey Plaza, Donald Glover, and Andy Samberg in a New Clip from 'The To Do List'

Here's the first released clip from The To Do List, a new comedy starring Aubrey Plaza and written/directed by Maggie Carey (Funny or Die Presents) that's set to hit theaters August 16th. Bill Hader, Donald Glover, and Andy Samberg play supporting roles, and you can see them for two seconds each in this clip.

'Girls' Season Two: Older and Not All That Much Wiser

This Sunday, the show the internet loves to argue about returns to HBO for its second season. That's Lena Dunham's Girls, of course, a half hour comedy that's been called everything from zeitgeisty to depraved to… god, I am not going to repeat that voice-of-a-generation quote that's always misinterpreted.

Many critical pixels have been posted about Girls, the recipient of extreme praise (to which I've certainly contributed) and much criticism, some totally fair, much some variety of pearl-clutching or

Watch Some Sketches from Comedy Central's 'Kroll Show'

Comedian Nick Kroll's new sketch series, Kroll Show, kicks off on Wednesday, January 16th, and Comedy Central has released two sketches from the show online. Here's the first, in which Kroll plays a basketball referee who's desperate to hang out with NBA players. Hit the jump for a sketch in which Nick Kroll and Jenny Slate both play publicists named Liz. Nick Kroll continues to be great and funny at playing terrible, pathetic people.

Community Is Coming Back And There Will Be Dean Outfits

Whether or not you're happy with Community's victory in the Best Sitcom Episode Tournament, get on board the March 15 train (not the monorail. Sorry guys) because it is going to be one crazy ride. The trailer below premiered last night on The Soup, and above is a clip from next week's episode. Judging by the trailer, it looks like there may be some new Best Sitcom Episode candidates in store this season. Also, Britta looks a LOT like Michael Jackson. Just had to say it.
