Get ready, Dr. Brule fans, because John C. Reilly's hit character returns to Adult Swim tomorrow night. The network released the first trailer for the Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim-produced half-hour special Bagboy today, in which Brule fans can finally watch his lost sitcom: "Pablo Meyers presents Bagboy: a sitcom pilot from Steven Brule about the shoppers and employees of Meyer’s Superfoods. The pilot was made several years ago by Steven Brule but was shelved by Channel 5 due to its substandard quality and low entertainment value." See the pilot for yourself on Adult Swim tomorrow night at 12:30am.
The sequel to 2012's Pitch Perfect debuts in theaters this May, and Universal released a brand new trailer today featuring Rebel Wilson, Anna Kendrick, and the rest of the Barden Bellas taking on some European rivals.

Last summer, Oxygen ordered a new docu-series about women in comedy called Funny Girls, and the network released the first trailer this week ahead of its April 7 debut. Funny Girls follows six women comics in Los Angeles (Scout Durwood, Calise Hawkins, Yamaneika Saunders, Nicole Aimee Schreiber, Stephanie Simbari, and Ester Steinberg) as they try to break out in the world of comedy and features cameos from Margaret Cho, Bill Burr, Janeane Garofalo, Horatio Sanz, and Loni Love. Judging from the trailer, it looks like Funny Girls will be a weird mix between a documentary-style look at standup and a drama-filled MTV-style scripted reality show.
Seth MacFarlane's 2012 blockbuster Ted has gotten its inevitable sequel, and the first trailer was released today.
