This Is Us will now remain on Tuesdays and not move to Thursdays, while Thursdays will now feature the return of a four-comedy night from 8-10pm. The new schedule is below and all the other nights will remain the same as announced two weeks ago.

TUESDAYS

9 p.m. – This Is Us
10 p.m. – Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders (Fall) / Chicago Med (January)

THURSDAYS

Stan Against Evil

Production has commenced in Atlanta, GA for IFC's Stan Against Evil, with returning leads John C. McGinley (Scrubs) as Stan Miller, the curmudgeonly retired police-sheriff, and Janet Varney (You're The Worst) as Evie Barret, the current sheriff in Willard's Mill determined to wipe out the demons that plague their quaint New England town. Stan Against Evil is created by Dana Gould (The Simpsons, Parks and Recreation) and produced by RadicalMedia (MARS, Abstract: The Art of Design). Season 2 of the horror-comedy series will premiere this fall on IFC with eight half-hour episodes.

New guest stars coming to Stan Against Evil Season 2 include:
· Denise Boutte (Meet The Browns) as Lara Bouchard, a local who may know more about the town's demonic creatures than she lets on.
· Jeffrey Combs (Gotham) as the Impish Man, a Willard's Mill newcomer who loves nothing more than a good bet.
· David Koechner (Anchorman) as Kenny, Evie's incorrigible ex-husband who, to Evie's dismay, creates a friendship with Stan.
· Steven Ogg (The Walking Dead) as Rusty, a cowboy from the past who takes a particular liking to Evie.
· Patty McCormack (The Bad Seed) as Priscilla, the knowledgeable owner of an antiques store.

The new season picks up where the Season 1 finale cliffhanger left off, with Sheriff Evie Barret (Varney) stranded in the year 1692, accused of being a witch and about to be burned at the stake. Despite his best attempts to never leave his couch, the disgruntled Stan Miller (McGinley) must begrudgingly solve the mystery of Evie's time-travelling disappearance. Throughout the season, the unlikely team will continue to battle against the unconventional demons trying to take over their town, which continue to pop up in every size, shape, and animal-form. Deborah Baker Jr. (The Great Indoors) and Nate Mooney (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) also return to co-star as Denise Miller, Stan's absent-minded, do-good daughter, and Deputy Leon Drinkwater, Evie's right hand man, respectively.

Odd Mom Out Returns for 3rd Season in July; Netflix Has Friends from College Over in July

Odd Mom Out

Bravo Media's original scripted comedy series Odd Mom Out, starring Jill Kargman, Abby Elliott, Andy Buckley, KK Glick, Sean Kleier, and Joanna Cassidy returns for season three on Wednesday, July 12 at 10 pm ET/PT. The series is created by Kargman, who plays a satirical version of herself trying to coexist with the demanding hierarchy of New York's exclusive Upper East Side mommy clique. This season, as victims of Ernie Krevitt's Ponzi scheme grapple with their new financial reality, Jill juggles the demands of her relentless mother-in-law and hormonal tweenage daughter while struggling with her own desires to feel young and relevant. Odd Mom Out season two delivered 1.1 million total viewers, up +5% above the prior season, making it one of the few returning ad-supported scripted series that saw growth in 2016. Watch a sneak peek of this season.

Joining the cast this season is Christine Taylor (Search Party, Dodgeball) playing Brooke's older sister, Barrett, a perfectionist homemaker who could make Martha Stewart look like a slob; Meredith Hagner (Search Party, The Set up) as Brooke's younger sister, who has mastered the art of cloying condescension; Alysia Reiner (Better Things, OITNB) as a by-the-book prosecutor trying the murder case of the century; Emma Myles (OITNB, Law & Order: SVU) as a crystal-wearing Wiccan whose testimony shocks the nation in said murder trial; and Dan Butler (Frasier, The Mist) playing Joe, a man who drops some serious knowledge on a lost Lex. Additionally, this season features notable guest stars Dave Navarro (Ink Master, Jane's Addiction) playing himself - paying off an epic night for Jill and Vanessa - and Wendy Williams (Host, The Wendy Williams Show) playing herself landing an exclusive interview with someone from the von Webers' past bent on taking down the family by spilling more tea than the Boston Tea Party.

This season, while the UES one-percenters find themselves in financial "distress," Candace seeks refuge by moving in with Jill and Andy, turning their lives upside down. Jill struggles to deal with how fast her daughter is growing up and launching her photography career, but she reaches a breaking point, making a surprising decision that has repercussions for Candace. Andy gets involved in school committees for the kids and takes on more than he can chew. Just when Candace is starting to get comfortable in Jill's home, she is sequestered for a murder case, and in true Candace fashion, she turns jury duty into her playpen. Brooke becomes the breadwinner of her family, but as she attempts to expand her empire, a former employee goes rogue, threatening everything she has accomplished. Meanwhile, the ripple effects of the Ponzi scheme cause Lex to consider a new career that is out of this world. And Vanessa tries to be a constant support for Jill while challenged with getting out of her comfort zone to try to keep the flames alive with her ex-husband Graham.


Friends from College

The long weekend just finished. ICYMI, soak up all of the immature use of mature language in four all new NSFW sneak peeks at from Friends from College the new Netflix original comedy series premiering globally on July 14. A group of friends from Harvard played by Keegan-Michael Key (Ethan), Cobie Smulders (Lisa), Annie Parisse (Sam), Nat Faxon (Nick), Fred Savage (Max) and Jae Suh Park (Marianne) are facing down their forties. With interwoven and oftentimes complicated relationships with one another. Friends from College is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past. The series is executive produced by Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors, Neighbors: Sorority Rising, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek), who also directed all eight episodes. Francesca Delbanco serves as an EP and writer.
