Fluffy Gets Netflix Sitcom; Double Dare Returns to Nickelodeon

Gabriel Iglesias

Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias is giving viewers three times the laughs in three new, upcoming Netflix projects, including a multi-cam comedy sitcom and two stand-up comedy specials. In the multi-cam comedy series, Mr. Iglesias, Iglesias plays a good-natured public high school teacher who works at his alma mater. He takes on teaching gifted but misfit kids to not only save them from being "counseled out" by a bully bureaucrat Assistant Principal, but also to help them unlock their full potential. Mr. Iglesias consists of ten, half-hour episodes and is produced by Netflix, with Iglesias serving as executive producer, along with Kevin Hench (Cristela, Last Man Standing). Iglesias previously appeared on the sitcom Cristela on ABC as a series regular and Iglesias recently guest starred on an episode of ABC's hit comedy Modern Family. The first of two stand-up comedy specials will be taped during Iglesias' current world tour "One Show Fits All," and the second on a future date.


Double Dare

Nickelodeon is bringing back the original kids' game show Double Dare this summer with 40 brand-new episodes, giving a new generation of fans the chance to compete in the messiest and most physically challenging competition of their lives. With Double Dare remaining an iconic touchstone for its original millennial audiences, the new version will feature the gameplay and challenges they remember, as well as appearances from blasts from the past and stars from today. Double Dare features two teams competing to win prizes by answering brain-bending trivia questions, completing messy, physical stunts and ultimately facing the infamous obstacle course--the human hamster wheel; the classic gigantic mouth; the wringer; and the iconic Double Dare nose.

Double Dare premiered on Oct. 6, 1986, on Nickelodeon, and ran from 1986-1993, making it the network's longest running game show. Shortly after its debut, Double Dare became one of the most popular original daily programs on cable television. The series went into syndication in 1988, and was later revamped as Super Sloppy Double Dare in 1989. The show also ran on broadcast television as Family Double Dare in 1988, followed by new versions on Nick, including Double Dare 2000.

Fri-Yay: Why Brooklyn Nine-Nine Deserves a Renewal; Celebrity Version of Undercover Boss Starts May 11

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!

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

by Vincent

It's the end of April, which means in the next few weeks TV networks will be making final decisions on what will or won't be making their schedules next year. One of the many shows on the bubble is delightful sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which is ending its fifth season and remains as delightful as ever. And yet, ratings for the series have been steadily declining at a rate even faster than most network TV shows of the era. Even though ratings have perked up some since the show returned to the Sunday slot where it once stood tall, Brooklyn Nine-Nine still remains firmly on the bubble as we head into May upfronts. In fact, creator Dan Goor said that he wrote this year's finale as a "possible series ender" if need be (typically, Brooklyn seasons have ended with cliffhangers each year.)

It would be a real shame if Brooklyn Nine-Nine was cancelled without being given a proper goodbye, especially since the show has shown little signs of decline, a rarity for a sitcom this long into the game. Network sitcoms aren't as plentiful as they were, especially good network sitcoms, and we need to hold onto the great ones for as long as we can. Brooklyn is not only a consistently funny show with a winning cast with the likes of Andy Samburg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Chelsea Peretti and...well, basically everyone, but it's quietly become a progressive one too, with several LGBT characters and excellent diversity representation. And it manages to do so without ever feeling preachy or pandering, but rather just by making these ideals ingrained in the fabric of the show. Plus, Brooklyn's characters are just so damn likable. There's few makeshift families on TV I'd rather spend time with than the quirky oddballs of the 99th precinct. Fox will likely make its final decision on the show's fate within the next few weeks, and whether it has a 6th season on Fox or somewhere else, the show deserves at least another season to properly send off its characters. It would be a shame to let a show like Brooklyn 99 end on a whimper when it deserves to be celebrated and cheered.


Undercover Boss: Celebrity Edition

CBS announced that the first season of Undercover Boss: Celebrity Edition, from the team behind the two-time Emmy Award-winning series Undercover Boss, will premiere Friday, May 11 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Celebrities at the top of their chosen fields are going undercover to find talented people and make dreams come true. The nation's best singers, athletes, models and business icons embark on talent searches to pay it forward to deserving yet-to-be-discovered individuals. The first four celebrities appearing this season are: Gabby Douglas (Olympian), Idina Menzel (singer and actress), Bethany Mota (YouTube sensation), and NFL legend Deion Sanders. (Additional stars and airdates will be announced at a later date.) The celebrities were each disguised with state-of-the-art prosthetic makeup and custom-made wigs, which took an average of two and a half hours to apply.

Decades Gets Rose Marie Documentary; TBS Orders More Last O.G. and Search Party

Decades - Wait for Your Laugh

DECADES is proud to announce that on Tuesday, May 1, 2018, they will be the home of the television premiere of the film documentary Wait for Your Laugh. The documentary is the untold story of fame, love, tragedy and 90 years of American show business through the eyes of the woman who did it all -- Rose Marie. Entertainer Rose Marie, famous as Sally Rogers on The Dick Van Dyke Show and as the top center square on Hollywood Squares, had a varied and compelling showbiz career that spanned 90 years and took her everywhere from humble stages to Vaudeville to Broadway and from the early days of radio to the silver screen to the living-room television set. Wait for Your Laugh chronicles Rose Marie's one-of-a-kind; nine-decade showbiz journey with commentary and contributions from Carl Reiner, Dick Van Dyke, Tim Conway, Peter Marshall and others.

The DECADES television premiere of the film, by Jason Wise, Christina Wise and Jackson Myers in association with Forgotten Man Films, also features behind-the-scenes color footage from Rose Marie's personal collection, capturing the backstage antics on The Dick Van Dyke Show and rare footage from her other sets.


The Last O.G. and Search Party

TBS has given season pickups to two of its original series. Cable's #1 comedy The Last O.G. will return with a second season and the blistering breakout comedy-thriller Search Party is renewed for a third season. Season one of The Last O.G. starring Tracy Morgan, Tiffany Haddish and executive produced by Jordan Peele has so far reached a multiplatform audience of nearly 25 million viewers across TBS' linear, digital, mobile and on-demand platforms. It is the largest cable comedy premiere since 2015 and is 2018's top cable comedy show. Starring Alia Shawkat, Meredith Hagner, John Early, John Reynolds and Brandon Micheal Hall, Search Party grew double-digits in its sophomore season, was TBS' #1 series on digital, and became the fastest TBS original to reach one million views on VOD in season one. On Demand and digital views account for 11% of the show's multiplatform reach, with an on-demand audience as much as 17 years younger than linear.

The Last O.G. centers on Tray (Morgan), an ex-con released from a 15-year prison stint to a changed and unfamiliar world. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, Tray discovers that his former girlfriend Shay (Tiffany Haddish) is married to another man and has been raising Tray’s twins, who he never knew existed. Search Party is a series about a group of privileged, self-absorbed twenty-somethings covering up a murder.

CBS Pulls Living Biblically; First Wives Club Comedy Series Coming to Paramount Network

Living Biblically

Beginning tonight (Monday, April 23) at 9:30 PM, ET/PT, The Big Bang Theory repeats will replace Living Biblically, which will return to the schedule at a later date. That probably means a Saturday run in the summer or only on CBS.com. The sitcom stars Jay R. Ferguson as Chip Curry, a modern-day man at a crossroads in his life who decides to live strictly in accordance with the Bible. As he begins his sincere spiritual journey toward a more moral life with the help of his wife and friends, Chip wonders if he'll be able to take a page - or every page - out of the Good Book, and if the effect will be of Biblical proportions. Lindsey Kraft, Ian Gomez, David Krumholtz, Tony Rock and Camryn Manheim also star. In other notes, an encore broadcast of Young Sheldon will replace the previously scheduled rebroadcast of Mom tonight (Monday, April 23) at 9:00 PM, ET/PT. The schedule beginning April 30 will be the following:

Mondays, Beginning Monday, April 30
8:00 PM ET/PT Kevin Can Wait
8:30 PM ET/PT Man with a Plan
9:00 PM ET/PT Superior Donuts
9:30 PM ET/PT The Big Bang Theory (R)
10:00 PM ET/PT Elementary (Season Premiere)


Paramount Network

Paramount Network has picked up 10 half-hour episodes of a new comedy series, First Wives Club, from Paramount Television. Tracy Oliver, who penned the blockbuster hit film Girls Trip, is attached to write and serve as Executive Producer. The half-hour series is based on the popular 1996 film from Paramount Pictures, which featured Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn. The series, like the film, will be based in New York City. It will follow a group of women who band together after their marriages fall apart, and who find strength in their sisterhood- and of course a little revenge.

Production will begin in New York City this summer and the series will debut on Paramount Network in 2019. A cast announcement will be made in the coming weeks.

Fri-Yay: Superstore is Doing the Will They/Won't They Story Arc Right; Laff Pays Tribute to Harry Anderson

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!

Superstore - Amy and Jonah

by Vincent

Will They/Won't They story arcs are one of the cornerstone of sitcoms. They've been done since essentially the dawn of the genre, but perhaps became especially prevalent with Sam and Diane on Cheers and then Ross and Rachel on Friends. Since then, it seems like having two characters who seem like they're going to get together but have various hurdles in their way is a requirement for all sitcoms.

However, in recent years, the trend has veered towards putting characters together sooner than later, which isn't always the case. On Superstore, the central will they/won't they couple - Jonah and Amy - show no real signs of actually making a commitment as the show moves towards the end of its third season, which separates it from recent arcs like Jess and Nick on New Girl (perhaps the most iconic example of the form in the current era), although there have certainly been hints. What makes Superstore's approach especially interesting, though, is that it's just as interested in the dark sides of the will they/won't they as the warm and fuzzy romantic moments.

For example, the most recent Superstore showed Jonah's girlfriend Kelly being left alone as the lights turn off as Cloud 9 waiting for Jonah to show up for their date - instead, he's off with Amy at a country club. We see Jonah and Amy talking and laughing at the country club - then immediately cut to the consequences of that warm moment. Even darker, the show actually had Amy get divorced after the second season, for reasons not related to Jonah, but given that Amy and Jonah kissed for the first time around the time Amy ended her marriage, it's easy to draw the lines and wonder if it had some sort of impact. Adding fuel to the fire, Superstore has spent much of its third season detailing just how tough of a time Amy is navigating her life after her divorce. While her marriage was unhealthy and the divorce was a positive, it doesn't sugarcoat how difficult it can be to reshape your life when it's been shaped a certain way for so long.


All Rise for Harry

Laff, the country's first-ever, over-the-air broadcast television network devoted to comedy around-the-clock, will pay tribute to Harry Anderson with a 12-episode "All Rise for Harry" Night Court Marathon this Saturday, April 21 starting at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Anderson, who passed away Monday at the age of 65, was a three-time EMMY® nominee as the star of Night Court, playing Judge Harold "Harry" T. Stone who presided over the nocturnal judiciary proceedings and its wacky cast of characters - both on trial and on staff. Anderson first gained national attention after he guest starred as grifter Harry "The Hat" Gittes on the first season of Cheers. That role, which he would reprise several times, led to his landing the lead role on the bench of Night Court.

Night Court was a staple of NBC's primetime line-up from 1984 to 1992. The popular series also featured John Larroquette's multiple EMMY®-winning performance as Dan Fiedling, the court's narcissistic prosecutor. The show also co-starred Markie Post, Richard Moll as the iconic court officer Bull, Selma Diamond and Marsha Warfield among others. Night Court can be seen on Laff weekdays at 3:00 p.m. (ET) with four episodes back-to-back. Laff features a hall-of-fame line-up of hit sitcoms which, in addition to Night Court, includes Roseanne, That '70s Show, 3rd Rock from the Sun, The Drew Carey Show, Spin City, Grace Under Fire, Ellen and more. Home Improvement, starring Tim Allen, comes to Laff this fall.
