Carol Burnett Gets Netflix Series; Futurama on Syfy, Marathon on 4/20

A Little Help with Carol Burnett

Carol Burnett is back! Netflix announced that improv/sketch series A Little Help with Carol Burnett will premiere on May 4, 2018. Celebrity guests include: Julie Bowen, Candace Cameron Bure, Mark Cuban, Billy Eichner, Taraji P. Henson, Derek Hough, DJ Khaled, Lisa Kudrow, Brittany Snow, Wanda Sykes, and Finn Wolfhard. Netflix will release all 12 half-hour episodes at once. In this funny and endearing series, she will be joined by a group of the most honest and unfiltered people in the world - a gaggle of straight talking, entertaining 5-9 year old kids. These very opinionated "experts" weigh-in on a variety of relatable and humorous dilemmas brought in by everyday adults. Each episode will feature a celebrity contributor brave enough to bring in their own dilemma for the kids to comment on in front of a live audience. The show is co-hosted by comedian Russell Peters.


Futurama

On Friday, April 20, SYFY falls under the trance of Futurama's Hypnotoad, the dangerously mesmerizing amphibian with the power to put humans into a zombie-like trance. From 8/7c to 2am/1c, our glorious lord and master stages a full SYFY invasion, complete with his own far-out logo, psychedelic sidebar and hypnotic interruptions of Futurama episodes selected for maximum trip-enhancing effect and Hypnotoad-centricity.
