SitcomsOnline Digest: Jon Stewart Set to Return to The Daily Show Once a Week; Ted McGinley to Star in Prime Video Series

  Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! This week, we are hearing about Jon Stewart's return to The Daily Show, we're learning about a new Prime Video series, and more. Let's get going!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB

  • Jon Stewart is returning to The Daily Show, at least once a week for the next few months, but given that the show itself is a long way from finding a permanent host and that the best option is to apparently bring back the "fresh face" from 1999, it has people wondering what the future of late night talk actually is. (Time)
  • Prime Video has acquired a series called The Baxters, which will star Roma Downey and Ted McGinley. (Deadline)
  • The Golden Bachelor is turning out to be rather successful for ABC. (Deadline)
  • Judy Justice is coming to local syndication in the fall. (Variety)
  • Jaleel White is set to host a new game show this fall. (Deadline)
  • Antenna TV is having another Super Belle Sunday featuring Designing Women on the day of "the big game." (SitcomsOnline)

WEEKLY PLANNER (JANUARY 27 - FEBRUARY 2)

  • Catchy Comedy has a very special binge this weekend featuring some short-lived sitcoms, including Brooklyn Bridge, the sitcom adaptation of Ferris Bueller, and Square Pegs.
  • We've been talking about it for months, and for a while we thought we were just being trolled, but every season of My Three Sons has finally arrived on Prime Video.

Ramy Youssef Gets Max Comedy Special; Solar Opposites Celebrates Valentine's Day

Ramy Youssef

Emmy®-nominated and Golden Globe®-winning actor, writer and comedian Ramy Youssef will return to HBO for his new stand-up comedy special Ramy Youssef: More Feelings debuting this March. Ramy will tape this new material in front of a live audience at White Eagle Hall in Jersey City, New Jersey on February 2 and 3. Emmy® Award-winning director Christopher Storer will direct the special which will debut on HBO and stream on Max. Youssef is perhaps best known for Hulu’s Peabody Award-winning comedy series, Ramy, which he created, produces, directs and stars in. Youssef received a Golden Globe® in 2020 for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy, and was subsequently nominated for two Emmy® Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series on behalf of the series' second season. The first 11 episodes of season 4 dropped last August, with this special episode held for Valentine's Day! Season 3 had a Halloween special and Season 2 had a holiday special, so the tradition continues.


Solar Opposites Valentine's Day Special

Feel the love! Citizens of Earth, prepare for a brand new Solar Opposites Valentine's Day special crash landing on Hulu on Monday, February 5, 2024! Solar Opposites centers around a team of four aliens who are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome. Korvo (Dan Stevens) and Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone) only see the pollution, crass consumerism, and human frailty while Terry (Thomas Middleditch) and Jesse (Mary Mack) love TV, junk food and fun stuff. In Season 4, we pack up the sci-fi and get normal... for a second. Then it's back to classic Solar chaos, mayhem in the Wall, and some all new Silvercops adventures!

When Calls the Heart Returns for Season 11; Max February 2024 Programming

When Calls the Heart

It's news that will get the Hearties' hearts racing! After an electrifying finale left fans and viewers stunned last October, Hallmark Channel announced that season 11 of their longest-running original series, When Calls the Heart, will make its return in a few months! Coming off an exciting Season 10 finale, this season brings the promise of a new start, romance, community, and reunion. Season 11 premieres on Sunday, April 7, 2024, at 9pm/8c with a total of 12 episodes! In season 11 of When Calls the Heart, schoolteacher Elizabeth Thornton embarks on a fresh start - with new romance, new challenges, and new style. She and Mountie Nathan Grant navigate their growing romantic feelings while also leaning on each other for support as they face new parenting obstacles. Newly elected Governor Lucas Bouchard must confront his past in order to embrace his strengths and lead Hope Valley into the future. Retired Mountie Bill Avery and newspaper reporter Rosemary Coulter team up to unravel a mystery putting their entire community at risk. This season explores renewal, redemption, and of course romance as Hope Valley enters the 1920's.


The History of Curb Your Enthusiasm

Max announces programming coming to the platform this February, including the debut of the twelfth and final season of HBO Original Curb Your Enthusiasm (2/4). Starring Larry David as an over-the-top version of himself, the iconic Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R)-winning comedy series offers a tongue-in-cheek depiction of the writer/producer/comedian's fictionalized life. The comedy series continues to prove how seemingly trivial details of one's day-to-day life can precipitate a catastrophic chain of events. To keep the narrative spontaneous, the series is shot without a script and cast members are given scene outlines and improvise lines as they go. Additionally, "The History of Curb Your Enthusiasm," a video podcast produced by iHeart in conjunction with HBO and hosted by Susie Essman and Jeff Garlin, recaps each episode of the series, featuring guests like Larry David himself, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, Bob Odenkirk, and more. The podcast will be available on Max beginning February 1st.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (2/18) returns for its eleventh season this February. A satirical, insightful, and meticulously researched look at current events in the U.S. and around the globe, the series features Oliver's hilarious, expertly honed perspective on today's pressing political, social, and cultural issues, as well as lesser-reported topics that both inform and entertain. Shot in New York, season eleven will continue to feature the show's weekly topical insights, signature deep dives, and distinctive comedy pieces.

A modern refresh of the hit series of the same name, season two of Clone High (2/1) follows a high school for clones of the greatest minds in history. Twenty years after the original experiment was put on ice, Joan, JFK, Abe, and Cleo have been thawed out to resume school with their new clone classmates - all while navigating a new set of cultural norms and overly dramatic teen relationships

In Dicks: The Musical (2/2), two self-obsessed businessmen (writers Aaron Jackson & Josh Sharp) discover they're long-lost identical twins and come together to plot the reunion of their eccentric divorced parents, in this riotously funny and depraved musical from comedy icon Larry Charles (Seinfeld, Borat) also starring Megan Thee Stallion, Nathan Lane, Megan Mullally, and Bowen Yang as God.

Cast for Untitled Erin Foster Comedy; Peacock's Apples Never Fall Gets Premiere Date

Justine Lupe and Timothy Simons

Netflix announced the additions of Justine Lupe and Timothy Simons to the Untitled Erin Foster Show, a new comedy series from creator and executive producer Erin Foster. They join previously announced series stars Kristen Bell and Adam Brody. A comedy centered on the unlikely relationship between an outspoken, agnostic woman, Joanne (Kristen Bell), and an unconventional rabbi, Noah (Adam Brody). Justine Lupe (Succession, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Cristela, Mr. Mercedes) joins as "Morgan" - Joanne's (Bell) charming-yet-cutting, quick-witted sister who doesn't feel the need to strive for more than she already has - which happens to be a hit podcast with her sibling, built around their buzzy banter and ride-or-die commitment to being alone together. Timothy Simons (Don't Worry Darling, Candy, VEEP) joins as "Sasha" - Noah's (Brody) outlandish, eccentric, delusionally confident older brother who loves living vicariously through his "golden child" sibling.

Also joining in Recurring Guest Stars roles:
o Jackie Tohn (GLOW, Old Dads, Gen V) as "Esther" - Sasha's wife and Noah's sister-in-law, who doesn't suffer fools.
o Michael Hitchcock (Black Monday, Grand Death Lotto, Exmas) as "Henry" - Joanne and Morgan's newly out-of-the-closet father, who is "gay, opinionated and owning it!"
o Paul Ben-Victor (Pam & Tommy, The Irishman) plays "Ilan" - Noah's father, who also acts as his moral compass.
o Sherry Cola (Good Trouble, Joy Ride) plays "Ashley" - Joanne's lesbian, no-nonsense best friend.
o Shiloh Bearman (Home Economics) plays Miriam - Sasha and Esther's earnest teen daughter.
o Stephanie Faracy (Uncoupled, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates) plays "Lynn" - Joanne and Morgan's recently-divorced mother with a New Age propensity for the mystical.
o Tania Raymonde (Goliath, Lost) plays "Rebecca" - Noah's "perfect" Jewish girlfriend who has done "everything right" to get him to propose.
o Tovah Feldshuh (The Walking Dead, Funny Girl) plays "Bina" - Noah's coldly aloof mother, a woman for whom family is everything.


Apples Never Fall

Starring alongside Fielding in the ensemble cast are Ellie White (The Windsors), Marc Wootton (High & Dry), Duayne Boachie (Blue Story), Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Tamsin Greig (Episodes), Asim Chaudhry (The Sandman), Dolly Wells (The Outlaws), Joe Wilkinson (Sex Education), Mark Heap (Friday Night Dinner), Geoff McGivern (Free Rein), Michael Fielding (The Mighty Boosh), Samuel Leakey (Gretel & Hansel) and Kiri Flaherty.

Some of her other television guest appearances included Vega$, CHiPs (3 episodes), Hawaiian Heat, Masquerade, The Fall Guy, Crazy Like a Fox, Amazing Stories, The Highwayman, Matlock (3 episodes), Mancuso, FBI (1990), Hunter (2 episodes) and Under Suspicion.

Ms. Morgan was a talented and lovely actress in the 1980s. We thank her for work on television and in films. She will be sorely missed.
