Leo Reich: Literally Who Cares

Max announces programming coming to the platform this December, including the HBO Original comedy special Leo Reich: Literally Who Cares? (12/16), the comedian's first solo stand-up special debuts this December. Following rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and an Off-Broadway run, this self-diagnosed important young mind faces the swirling uncertainty of our collective future, asking the big questions, such as: "Is this helping?", "Am I hot?", and "No offense guys but literally what is going on?" Treading the line between hilarious stand-up and humorless performance art, the special blends songs, anecdotes, and anxious non-sequiturs in a valiant attempt to raise awareness about important social and political causes... or something. The special from A24 was taped at EartH in London.

Gary Ulman: Born on 3rd Base

In the Max Original comedy special Gary Ulman: Born on 3rd Base (12/21), comedian, actor, and best-selling author Gary Gulman (HBO's The Great Depresh) offers up his hilarious insights on a range of topics - from growing up poor to pretentious suffixes - all with a generous helping of his inventive humor and absurdism. Reflecting on his eccentric Jewish American family, Gulman chronicles his childhood experiences with free school lunch programs and questionable dental care, as well as incisive swipes at billionaire-ism. With thoughtfulness and empathy, the special sheds light on the performer's unique point-of-view on both lighthearted and serious subjects.

Prime Video's Hazbin Hotel; Lacey Chabert Gets Hallmark Unscripted Series

Hazbin Hotel

In the continued spirit of Thanksgiving, Prime Video is showing its appreciation to Hazbin Hotel fans by revealing the premiere date for Season One of the highly anticipated adult animated musical comedy. Episodes will be available to stream exclusively on Prime Video beginning January 19, 2024, in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. Guest stars include Broadway veterans Darren Criss (Saint Peter), Jeremy Jordan (Lucifer Morningstar), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Carmilla Carmine), Patina Miller (Sera), and Jessica Vosk (Lute). They will join the stacked lineup of previously announced main cast including Erika Henningsen, Stephanie Beatriz, Alex Brightman, Keith David, Kimiko Glenn, Blake Roman, Amir Talai, Christian Borle, and Joel Perez. The series will feature original music and lyrics from platinum-certified artist Sam Haft and Emmy-nominated Andrew Underberg.

Hazbin Hotel follows Charlie, the princess of Hell, as she pursues her seemingly impossible goal of rehabilitating demons to peacefully reduce overpopulation in her kingdom. After a yearly extermination imposed by angels, she opens a hotel in the hopes that patrons will be "checking out" into Heaven. While most of Hell mocks her goal, her devoted partner Vaggie, and their first test subject, adult-film star Angel Dust, stick by her side. When a powerful entity known as the "Radio Demon" reaches out to assist Charlie in her endeavors, her crazy dream is given a chance to become a reality.

Hallmark Media is bringing its brand of feel-good programming to the unscripted genre with its new aspirational series Celebrations with Lacey Chabert, executive produced and hosted by perennial fan-favorite Lacey Chabert (Haul Out the Holly, Mean Girls).

Sundance Now Gets Original Comedy; Hallmark Original Returns for Season 2 in January

The Lovers

Acclaimed Sundance Now Original romantic comedy The Lovers is set to premiere in the U.S. and Canada with two episodes on Thursday, December 7, exclusively on Sundance Now and AMC+, with additional episodes dropping weekly on both platforms. Set in Belfast, Northern Ireland, The Lovers is a sexy, funny, fight-y love story about two people who appear to be utterly wrong for each other - yet may just be utterly right.

The six-part series follows Janet (Roisin Gallagher, The Fall, The Dry), a bad-tempered, hilarious, Belfast supermarket worker who couldn't give a s--t about much of anything at all, including her life, and Seamus (Singer/Songwriter and Critics Choice(R) Awards-nominee Johnny Flynn, Emma., Lovesick, Genius), a handsome, self-centered, political broadcaster with what looks to be a perfect London life and a celebrity girlfriend. When Seamus unexpectedly drops into Janet's world (literally over the wall and into her backyard) they instantly clash - and yet also find themselves inextricably drawn to each other... SAG(R) Award-nominee Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones, Suits) also features in the series as Janet's supermarket boss, Philip, and Alice Eve (Bombshell, Star Trek Into Darkness) plays Frankie, Seamus' girlfriend.




The Way Home

The Way Home, Hallmark Channel's critically acclaimed, original hit primetime drama series returns for its sophomore season on Sunday, January 21 (9 p.m. ET/PT), the network announced. Andie MacDowell (Maid, Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove), Chyler Leigh (Supergirl, Grey's Anatomy), Evan Williams (Blonde, Versailles), Sadie Laflamme-Snow (The Apprentice), Alex Hook (I Am Frankie), Al Mukadam (Pretty Hard Cases, The Detail), Jefferson Brown (Masters of Romance, Slasher), David Webster (Luckiest Girl Alive, In the Dark) and Siddarth Sharma (Homeschooled, In the Dark) reprise their roles in the multigenerational family drama that captivated viewers from the premiere episode.

In the first season, the multigenerational family drama introduced viewers to Kat Landry (Leigh), her 15-year-old daughter Alice (Laflamme-Snow) and Kat's mother Del (MacDowell), three generations of women who are strong, willful and independent. After being estranged for nearly two decades following the unsolved disappearance of Kat's eight-year-old brother Jacob (Remy Smith) and untimely death of family patriarch Colton Landry (Brown) that prompted Kat to move away from her Canadian farm town of Port Haven, Kat moves back with Alice when she finds herself at a crossroads in life. Shortly after arriving, Alice unwittingly discovers the ability to travel between the past and present via a pond on the family's land. Soon, mother and daughter become determined to unearth the truth about these past tragedies and attempt to change the course of events. Elliot (Williams), Kat's childhood friend who always held a torch for her, is there in the present to help guide both of them in their journey, as well as in the past for Alice as his teen self (Webster). Season two starts where the shocking season one finale left off and put viewers on the edge of their seats - with Kat exclaiming to Del that she knows what happened to Jacob. As Kat continues her quest to find Jacob and bring him home, mother and daughter uncover unexpected revelations about their origins that bring answers to some questions while new ones are raised.

The John Ritter Foundation: An Evening From the Heart - Amy Yasbeck and Meredith O'Neal

We were on hand this month for The John Ritter Foundation: An Evening From the Heart - NYC that started seven years ago with the Petrera-Cohen family honoring the memory of their daughter, Olivia (Livie), who passed away before her second birthday from complications of a genetic aortic disorder. This year, the event commemorated The John Ritter Foundation's 20-years of impact and John's life-saving legacy, while honoring the memory of Livie. In addition, The JRF shared the story of esteemed sportswriter and LGBTQ+ rights activist Grant Wahl. Wahl shockingly passed away last winter after he collapsed from a thoracic aortic dissection while reporting on the World Cup in Qatar. The event also included the presentation of The JRF's Founders Award to Dr. John Elefteriades with the Yale School of Medicine for his decades of work improving the care of patients with aortic disease. Dr. Elefteriades is an internationally recognized cardiovascular surgeon and has served on The JRF's Professional Advisory Board since its establishment. There was also a Silent Auction with many different pieces from all sorts of genres -- sports, travel and entertainment. Among the celebrities/notable people on hand were Amy Yasbeck and Tony Shalhoub.

Amy Yasbeck and Tony Shalhoub



In 2003 the world lost John Ritter to a tragically misdiagnosed thoracic aortic dissection. Although preventable, thousands of people die every year due to the lack of awareness of this critical medical emergency. To shine a much-needed light on thoracic aortic disease, John's widow, Amy Yasbeck, established The John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health. Twenty years of honoring John's legacy with genetic research, widespread education, and radical advocacy.

Consider donating to this great cause that will save countless of lives for years to come.

The John Ritter Foundation: An Evening From the Heart

Of course John Ritter needs no introduction, but John Ritter's career spanned decades, most notably; his starring roles in the classic TV sitcom Three's Company, 8 Simples Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, Clifford The Big Red Dog, and Stephen King's 1990 mini-series IT. His feature films include Sling Blade, Skin Deep, Stay Tuned, Bad Santa, and Problem Child 1 and 2. John received many awards throughout his esteemed career including a Primetime Emmy, The Golden Globe, and The People's Choice Award.

Onyx Collective and ABC Signature announced the season two renewal of the original dramedy series UnPrisoned, starring and executive produced by Kerry Washington and Delroy Lindo, on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America, and Disney+ in all other territories. UnPrisoned debuted as Onyx Collective's most-viewed premiere on Hulu and as the inaugural dramedy series for the brand. Inspired by creator Tracy McMillan’s life, the series follows a messy but perfectionist relationship therapist, social media influencer and single mom, Paige Alexander (Washington), whose life is turned right-side-up when her dad, Edwin Alexander (Lindo), gets out of prison and moves in with her and her teenage son.

The series is executive produced by McMillan, Yvette Lee Bowser and Washington alongside Pilar Savone, through their Simpson Street production company, and Lindo. Joy Gorman Wettels and Jen Braeden also executive produce. The series hails from Onyx Collective on Hulu and is produced by ABC Signature. The story of UnPrisoned is the reality of millions of families who are affected by the criminal justice system in the United States. According to the ACLU, mass incarceration has grown 500% over the last 50 years, with over 2 million people in this country incarcerated today. With this series, McMillan creates flawed but lovable characters from a place of empathy, humor and soul to honor the families that mass incarceration affects most. All eight episodes of the first season of UnPrisoned are available to stream exclusively on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ in all other territories.

SitcomsOnline Digest: Young Sheldon Coming to an End After Seven Seasons; The CW International Sitcom Approach Not Going So Well

 Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! This week, we're learning about the end of one of the very last successful broadcast network sitcoms, the cancellation of some sitcoms at The CW that nobody expected to succeed anyway, and news about a reboot of Home Improvement that probably isn't happening. Let's get going!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB

  • Young Sheldon is coming to an end after the upcoming seventh season, which is sort of a natural end for the series as a prequel eventually runs out of time between the prequel and the original series itself. (Deadline)
  • It seems that The CW's strategy of evolving from Warner Bros superhero shows to Canadian and British sitcoms that nobody in the US has even heard of isn't working out, as Run the Burbs and Everyone Else Burns have both been pulled from the schedule. (Deadline)
  • It isn't the first time we've heard this (the first time was before Last Man Standing debuted), but Tim Allen is now saying he wants a reboot of Home Improvement... we're not exactly expecting to give any further updates on something that probably isn't going to happen, though. (Entertainment Weekly)
  • We're equally as skeptical on this chatter of a potential Dukes of Hazzard reboot as well. (Entertainment Weekly)
  • Here's one that might have an ounce of truth: a reboot of The Office is NOT happening, but a spinoff that is in the vein of the original series could be in the works. (The Wrap)
  • The Price is Right: The Barker Era channel on Pluto TV is going a little deeper in the archives finally, and adding some episodes from the 70s. (Cord Cutters News)
  • Dick Van Dyke is about to turn 98, and CBS is here to celebrate. (SitcomsOnline)

WEEKLY PLANNER (NOVEMBER 18 - NOVEMBER 24)

  • Last weekend, Catchy Comedy had a binge of All the Family and Sanford & Son; this weekend, All in the Family is back but it is being paired with Good Times this time.
  • Catchy Comedy is having a Dean Martin "Thanksgiving Roast" with comedy roast specials on Thanksgiving Day.
  • Antenna TV isn't going full-blown marathon this year for Thanksgiving weekend, but they do have Black and White Friday coming up on Friday, with a marathon of black and white episodes of TV shows.
  • Meanwhile, Rewind TV will have a Family Ties marathon on Thanksgiving Day.

SitcomsOnline Digest: SAG-AFTRA Strike Finally Ends; New Digital TV Broadcast Networks Coming

Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! This week, we finally have an end to the SAG-AFTRA strike, we're hearing about some new digital TV broadcast networks, and getting an update on the reboot of an animated adult comedy favorite. Let's get going!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB

  • It's over! The SAG-AFTRA strike has ended, and we're getting an idea of how long the season could be for some of our favorite sitcoms (hint: it's not long). (Deadline)
  • We don't have many details yet, but some new digital TV broadcast networks (that will also be streaming) are coming soon from a partnership between Warner Bros. Discovery, Lionsgate, and Gray Television. (Deadline)
  • What is lost in the news of these new networks, however, is that Gray Television's current country music digital TV broadcast network, Circle, will be shutting down on December 31 to make way for these new networks, though they say that current programming on Circle will be redistributed elsewhere (and it seems that Circle may maintain a streaming presence as well). (Cord Cutters News)
  • We're learning a bit more about the King of the Hill revival, but don't look for it to arrive on Hulu for at least a year, as they're still working out casting details. (TVLine)
  • Disney is looking to sell Freeform (which is no longer available on Spectrum, one of the largest cable providers) and other networks to A+E networks. (Cord Cutters News)
  • Big Brother, the CBS summer reality series that managed to get stretched all the way into November this year, isn't stopping there, and is having a special two week Christmas themed version next month. (Variety)
  • FX has renewed The Bear for a third season. (SitcomsOnline)

WEEKLY PLANNER (NOVEMBER 11 - NOVEMBER 17)

  • Catchy Comedy is having a binge of All the Family and Sanford & Son this weekend.
