Mom

As we mentioned, TV Land's lineup is getting even funnier as the network adds Mom, the hilarious CBS sitcom that tugs at viewers' heartstrings starting today (Monday, September 18), kicking off with a two week launch event. The critically-acclaimed sitcom from producer Chuck Lorre stars Emmy® winner Allison Janney and Anna Faris as two generations of the Plunkett women who reconnect with each other as they try to stay sober and overcome their rocky past. During the first two weeks on TV Land, select episodes from seasons one through four will air weeknights from 10pm to 11pm ET/PT and 1am to 2am ET/PT, with seasons one and two airing the first week and seasons three and four airing the second. But after the two week period, Mom will also air on TV Land's sister network CMT beginning Monday, October 2.

In Mom, life hasn’t been easy for Christy Plunkett (Faris), but now she's sober and trying to mend her relationship with her mother, Bonnie (Janney) – and at least one of those things is definitely a good idea. Bonnie may have a difficult relationship with concepts like "telling the truth," "paying the rent," and "setting a good example for her grandchildren," but she certainly keeps life interesting. She and Christy also have the support of the other women in their AA group – human fortune cookie Marjorie (Mimi Kennedy), newly sober Jill (Jaime Pressley), and pushover Wendy (Beth Hall) – who are always willing to hash things out over a meal at the bistro, just as long as Jill is paying. The series also features star-studded guest appearances by Octavia Spencer, Kevin Pollack, Ed Asner, Ellen Burstyn, Harry Hamlin, Rosie O’Donnell, Joe Manganiello, Wendie Malick, and Richard Schiff.

SitcomsOnline Digest: Fuller House Set for Season 3 Debut on Full House 30th Anniversary

Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! This weekend, we have a very odd and unusual week where there are no stories about reboots of any classic series (unless we missed it), but we do have news on the third season of Fuller House, a new acquisition of a series for TV Land, and more. Let's get going!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB
  • Season 3 of Fuller House will debut on Netflix just in time for the 30th anniversary of the series, and will feature a reunion of many of the cast members of Full House (aside, of course, from the Olsen twins who still seem to be holding out). (Deadline)
  • If you own an Amazon device with Alexa (or any other similar device), you may want to check your shopping list to make sure it doesn't have any NSFW items on it if you watched the season premiere of South Park. (The Verge)
  • It used to be a really big deal when a broadcast series went into syndication, with announcements and plans coming a year or more in advance. It also used to be true that a series on TV Land would be something that has been off the air for a decade or more. Neither of those are true anymore, and that has been made clear by TV Land's acquisition of the series Mom, which begins airing on Monday on the network (and it'll also be airing on CMT and FXX). (Deadline)
  • After some initial skepticism, it looks as if Trevor Noah is working out just fine for The Daily Show, as he received a five year renewal this week. (Variety)
  • The saga of Alec Baldwin playing Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live has been an on-again, off-again affair (at one point he claimed he wouldn't be doing it again at all, but backed down from that weeks later), but right now, it seems he'll be staying put for the upcoming season. (Rolling Stone)
  • Fox News appears to be very close to adding Laura Ingraham to their primetime lineup, which would also mean another shakeup in the lineup. (Variety)
  • Big Brother has been a staple of the CBS summer lineup for nearly two decades now, and this winter, they're going to do what every reality show eventually does: a celebrity version. (CNN
  • TBS has renewed a trio of series. (SitcomsOnline

TUESDAY (SEPTEMBER 19) HOME MEDIA RELEASES
Modern Family - The Complete Eighth Season

FOLLOW ME

Who to Follow: Brandon Micheal Hall (Twitter), "I might not be able to change the world but I will spark the brain that will change the world-Tupac"
Claim to Fame: As is tradition every year, we start to look at some of the stars of the upcoming fall season for our "Follow Me" segment around this time of the year. We're starting with Brandon Micheal Hall (yes, "Micheal" is spelled correctly here), who'll be starring in the ABC sitcom The Mayor. The series debuts on October 3, and stars Hall as Courtney Rose, as a rapper who runs for mayor as a publicity stunt, then actually wins and is forced to do his job the best way he can. What's quite unusual about this series, though, is that it has a star who isn't particularly well known. His previous credits include a role on the series Search Party. He's even relatively new to Twitter, and not all that used to tweeting, but we assume that if the series becomes a hit, we'll be seeing more from him on Twitter and on screen.

It's time for another edition of Fri-Yay! That means we will take a look back on some sitcom happenings in recent days or weeks or other fun sitcomy stuff. It's a sitcom lover's paradise! Happy Fri-Yay!

BoJack Horseman

by Vincent

Is BoJack Horseman currently the best show on TV? Netflix released the fourth season of BoJack Horseman on Friday. BoJack was my favorite show of 2016 - its third season was a tour-de-force of original, offbeat comedy mixed with genuine exploration of dark human emotions such as depression, failure, and regret. Oh, and by the way, it's an animated Hollywood satire that takes place in a society where animals are sentient beings that look and act just like humans.

If you think all of that sounds unlikely to add up to a great television show, I understand. Frankly, much of BoJack's run has been an obvious attempt to balance these two extremely different television shows in one - the strange, Adult Swim-esque Hollywood satire starring animals mixed with an almost Mad Men or Sopranos-esque exploration of deep human darkness. And early on, the show didn't always strike the right balance - the first half of the first season oscillates sometimes uncomfortably between the two extremes, often relying too heavily on gross-out, Family Guy­­-esque gags to toe the line. But around the halfway point of the first season, the show began digging into its dark side more comfortably, exploring the regret and shame behind the life of its washed-up sitcom star BoJack and the "island of misfit toys" type figures that surround him in his personal life. In the excellent second half of the first season, the show transformed into one of the deepest, most meaningful series on TV, and that only continued throughout the astonishing second and third seasons. The fourth season continues to astound me at just how deep it's willing to go - without spoiling anything, I'll just say that this season dives into BoJack's past to explore themes such as loss, regret and the idea of how we inherit the trauma and pain of our parents and grandparents without even realizing it. It's heavy stuff that I rarely see any show on TV digging into, never mind an animated comedy starring a talking horse.

Even as it's gotten darker and darker, though, BoJack still remains a top-notch comedy, as well. Anyone who considers themselves a sitcom fan would dig the way the show pays tribute to sitcoms and television of years past and is in many ways informed by them. BoJack did get his start starring in a TGIF-esque '90s sitcom, after all, and the series often takes cues from those kinds of shows, only to spin them around on their head. (There's even a Christmas special made in between the show's first and second seasons that actually shows us a full episode of Horsin' Around, the family sitcom that BoJack got his start in.) That's what makes BoJack the best show currently airing on television - it has the very best that drama has to offer mixed with the very best that comedy has to offer, without any kind of sacrifice on either end of the spectrum. "Hilarious comedy about depression starring talking animals" may sound too ridiculous to be true, but it's not. It's just BoJack Horseman.


Jim Carrey

Showtime announced the pick-up of new half-hour comedy series Kidding, starring Golden Globe(R) winner Jim Carrey (The Truman Show) in his first series regular role in more than two decades and reuniting him with Oscar winner Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), who will direct the project with a 10-episode first-season order for Kidding, Carrey - one of the most beguiling, popular screen stars of his time - will executive produce with Gondry, Emmy(R) nominee Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), Jim Garavente (Bad Words), Raffi Adlan (The Green Hornet) and Michael Aguilar (I'm Dying Up Here). Kidding was created by Dave Holstein (Weeds, Raising Hope), who wrote the pilot and will serve as showrunner.

In the comedy series, Carrey plays Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, an icon of children's television, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him - who also anchors a multimillion dollar branding empire. But when this beloved personality's family - wife, two sons, sister and father - begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.

TBS Renews Three Comedies; Hallmark Channel's Countdown to Christmas 2017

The Guest Book

Turner's TBS has renewed three of the network's most recent hit original comedy series: The Guest Book, People of Earth and Wrecked. All three shows rank among the top 10 cable comedies with adults 18-49 in Live +7, and The Guest Book is cable's #1 new comedy series of the year. The network's summer series join TBS' previous 2017 renewals, including the dysfunctional family comedy The Detour and police procedural spoof Angie Tribeca.

The Guest Book emerged from Emmy® winner Greg Garcia's habit of writing fictitious stories in the guest books of various rental cabins in an effort to freak out the next renters. Season one stars Garret Dillahunt, Carly Jibson, Kellie Martin, Charlie Robinson, Aloma Wright, Lou Wilson, Laura Bell Bundy and Eddie Steeples as residents of a small mountain town who interact with visitors renting vacation home 'Froggy Cottage.' Executive-produced by Emmy® winners Conan O'Brien and Greg Daniels along with creator David Jenkins and showrunner Norm Hiscock, People of Earth centers on a support group for alien abductees in Beacon, N.Y. In season two, StarCrossed's members must reckon with the arrival of FBI Agent Alex Foster and the discovery that they were all previously abducted as children. The ensemble cast stars Wyatt Cenac, Ana Gasteyer, Nasim Pedrad, Oscar
 Nuñez, Michael Cassidy, Alice Wetterlund, Luka Jones, Brian Huskey, Nancy Lenehan, Tracee Chimo, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, Björn Gustafsson and Ken Hall. In season two of the hit survival comedy Wrecked, pirates invade the island. This is bad news for Danny, Owen and the other stranded airline passengers, who've only recently recovered from the loss of wi-fi, indoor plumbing and Steve's attempted takeover of the island. Season two stars Asif Ali, Zach Cregger, Rhys Darby, Brooke Dillman, Will Greenberg, Jessica Lowe, Ally Maki and Brian Sacca.


Countdown to Christmas

Everyone needs a happy place and Hallmark Channel offers viewers the perfect escape with the network's premier programming event, "Countdown to Christmas." The annual, 24/7 holiday programming schedule showcases a record 21 new, original holiday premiere movies that are sure to help even the biggest Scrooge recapture the Christmas spirit. From Friday, October 27, until Sunday, December 31, audiences will be able to immerse themselves in feel-good holiday fare throughout the season. Even as the temperatures drop around the country, viewers will be reminded that true love can still burn brightly - even when it's freezing. Whether a returning favorite from holidays past or brand-new yuletide offering, Hallmark Channel's schedule is brimming with tales of love, family and joy.

Returning to spread Christmas cheer are Hallmark Channel's "Queens of Christmas," Candace Cameron Bure (Fuller House) and Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls), who have each previously appeared in five original, world premiere Christmas movies for the network. The star-studded lineup leading the new, original movies continues with Catherine Bell (Army Wives, JAG), Lori Loughlin (Fuller House), Alison Sweeney (Days of Our Lives), Danica McKellar (The Wonder Years), Alexa PenaVega (Spy Kids franchise), Carlos PenaVega (The Loud House) and Jodie Sweetin (Fuller House).

Decades Salutes The Bob Newhart Show for 45th Anniversary; Netflix Gets Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond

The Bob Newhart Show

Few television shows are an immediate hit. The Bob Newhart Show was! Few comedy albums make it to #1 on the Billboard charts or win a GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart did. Few actors and comedians inspire generations of new talent like Bob Newhart either. DECADES salutes the 45th anniversary of The Bob Newhart Show and signature comedic style of Bob Newhart with a Weekend Binge event on Saturday, September 16 and Sunday, September 17, featuring continuing episodes of this enduring classic. DECADES will air 84 excellent episodes of The Bob Newhart Show back-to-back as the "Weekend Binge" starting at 1:00pm ET on Saturday, September 16, and ending at 7:00am ET on Monday, September 18. The Bob Newhart Show launched in 1972 in a highly competitive television comedy landscape that included the premieres of M*A*S*H, Maude, and Sanford and Son. Newhart's portrayal of psychologist Dr. Bob Hartley, combined with the brilliant performances of co-stars Suzanne Pleshette, Jack Riley, and the rest of The Bob Newhart Show cast, catapulted the show to instant success. Viewers across America tuned in each week to watch Bob play the "straight man" as he engaged in hilarious encounters with patients, neighbors, colleagues, and his lovingly sarcastic wife.


Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond

Netflix announced, out of this year's Toronto International Film Festival, that it has acquired worldwide rights to director Chris Smith's fascinating deep dive into actor Jim Carrey's time spent portraying famed and complicated comedian Andy Kaufman. Using approximately 100 hours of footage shot on the set of Man on the Moon documenting Carrey's transformation into Kaufman for four months. The VICE Documentary Films production premiered at the 2017 Venice Film Festival and is produced by Academy Award - winner Spike Jonze, and VICE Films' Danny Gabai and Brendan Fitzgerald. In 1999 Milos Forman cast Jim Carrey to play cult comedian Andy Kaufman in his biopic Man on the Moon. What followed was an intensely bizarre and emotional film production. Surrounded by Kaufman's friends and family on set, Carrey thoroughly "became" Andy and, alternately, Tony Clifton, Kaufman's obnoxious lounge singer alter ego. Much like Kaufman's comedy, Carrey's acting took on a performance art quality during the film. He never broke character on set, the cast and the crew referred to him as either 'Andy' or 'Tony' depending on who he was embodying (he had created complete and separate identities for each).

Seymour stars as Janet Force, the mother of the series protagonist, Joe (played by Jones).

Fri-Yay: 2017-18 New Sitcoms; Nick at Nite Fall 2017 Schedule with The Goldbergs

It's time for another edition of Fri-Yay! That means we will take a look back on some sitcom happenings in recent days or weeks or other fun sitcomy stuff. It's a sitcom lover's paradise! Happy Fri-Yay!

The Mayor

by Vincent

Last week, I took a look at the returning sitcoms that I'm looking forward to this fall. This week, I'll be doing something similar - only instead of returning series, I'll be taking a glance at some of the most exciting new sitcoms the networks have to offer this year. I'll be honest - it seems like a bit of a light slate this year, and not much is quite popping out to me as super promising. But there's still a handful of interesting shows that I think might be worth tuning into. I haven't seen any of these shows yet, but these are the shows I'm most looking forward to based on their trailers, promos, synopses and cast details.

The Mayor (ABC) - Of all of the network sitcoms premiering this fall, The Mayor has the most promise. The series follows a young rapper named Courtney who decides to run for mayor of his small California town as a joke and a publicity stunt, only to actually win. With a stacked cast (including Community's Yvette Nicole Brown and Glee's Lea Michele), an interesting (and uh, incredibly relevant) premise, and promos that already have some pretty good jokes, The Mayor is the comedy I'm most looking forward to this fall, and I'm hoping it delivers on its promise.

Ghosted (Fox) - Ghosted is another high-concept comedy from FOX, who has been experimenting in sci-fi-meets comedy for the past few years, sometimes to success (like with The Last Man on Earth, entering its fourth season this fall) and sometimes to...less success (such as with the quickly cancelled Making History). Ghosted is described as "an action-packed comedy about two down-on-their-luck polar opposites tasked with saving the world from aliens.") This sounds like the sort of show that will either be a delightfully weird and wild time or a total train-wreck. Either way, it should be a good time!

Will & Grace Revival (NBC) - Okay, well, technically this isn't a new series, but...it sort of is, right? It's a revival of long-running hit Will & Grace, which aired on NBC from 1998 to 2006 and is coming back for a ninth go around this fall. I'll be honest, I don't have super high hopes for Will & Grace: the original series had its moments but feels a little dated already, and I'm not sure there's much of a place for it in the current TV landscape. Still, it's always interesting when a long-dead TV show makes its way back onto the airwaves and tries to make itself relevant in a different era. I'll be watching Will & Grace and hoping it's better than I'm expecting it to be.

Me, Myself & I (CBS) - This is another high-concept comedy, but this time from CBS, who typically plays it a little more conventional (although they do have the uniquely-structured Life in Pieces which they've found some success with, so maybe they're getting a little more daring.) It revolves around follows a single character, Alex (portrayed, primarily, by Bobby Moynihan) in three distinct parts of his life: adolescence (1991) adulthood (present day) and old age (in 2042). Bobby Moynihan was a long-running staple of Saturday Night Live who had tons of hilarious characters and impressions, so I'm interested to see how he transitions into a starring role. He certainly has the talent to carry a show on his own, and the concept here is pretty fascinating, so hopefully everything settles into place and this can be the star vehicle that Moynihan deserves.

Those are the network sitcoms that have stuck out most to me this year based on their initial concepts and promotion, As usual, though, I'm always hoping to be surprised by an underdog who comes out of nowhere and surprisingly becomes excellent. Either way, I'll be checking out all of the sitcoms that the networks have to offer, as usual, hoping for the best!


The Goldbergs

Nickelodeon is bringing Walkmans, stonewashed denim and big hair to Nick at Nite with the addition of the popular family sitcom The Goldbergs, beginning Monday, Sept. 18, at 1 a.m. (ET/PT). The series follows the adventures of the Goldberg family as they share the ups and downs of life together in the '80s. Following the series launch, the four-season, 95-episode library of The Goldbergs will continue to air daily at 1 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nick at Nite. The Goldbergs is entering its fifth season this fall on ABC. The comedy will premiere on Monday, September 18, 2017 and will air every night at 1:00am & 1:30am. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will move down to 2-3am, with George Lopez overnight getting sliced to 3am-7am. Nick at Nite's prime schedule will remain as is, with Full House and Friends from 8pm-1am. However, the week after starting Sept. 25, Fresh Prince will air in the 10pm hour as well, taking an hour from House. Back to The Goldbergs, it will also premiere on local broadcast syndication as we mentioned before, starting Sept. 11 with stations like WPIX in NY airing it weeknights at 7:00pm & 7:30pm. And also as we mentioned before, The Goldbergs will air in primetime on Pop TV starting Tuesday, Sept. 26. More info on Pop TV's schedule will be coming soon, so stay tuned.

In The Goldbergs, there was a simpler time called the '80s--before there were parenting blogs, trophies for showing up and peanut allergies. For geeky and movie obsessed youngest child Adam (Sean Giambrone), these were his wonder years, and he faced them armed with a video camera to capture all the crazy. The Goldbergs are a loving family like any other--just with a lot more yelling. Mom Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) is a classic "smother," an overbearing, overprotective matriarch who loves her delicious kids, but still rules this brood with 100% authority and zero sense of boundaries. Dad Murray (Jeff Garlin) is gruff and sometimes oblivious, parenting with half his attention span but all his heart. Sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia) is popular and terrifying, doing her best to cover up that she's the smartest of the clan. Barry (Troy Gentile) is a passionate dreamer, who maybe dreams a little too big and who always gets the short end of the stick. Adam (Sean Giambrone) is the youngest, a camera-wielding future director who's navigating first love, and growing up with his family. Rounding out the family is beloved grandfather Al "Pops" Solomon (George Segal), the wild man of the clan, a shameless Don Juan who's learning as much from his family as he teaches them.

The Goldbergs stars Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids) as Beverly Goldberg, Sean Giambrone as Adam Goldberg, Troy Gentile (Good Luck Chuck) as Barry Goldberg, Hayley Orrantia (The X Factor) as Erica Goldberg, with George Segal (Just Shoot Me) as Pops Solomon and Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm) as Murray Goldberg.
