TBS adding new comedies to lineup

TBS has a few comedy goodies baking in the oven, including that new talk show from the Jim Henson Company we've mentioned here before. The late night comedy block begins November 27 with 10 Items or Less, a series about a businessman who returns home to take over the family supermarket after his father dies. Pilots that may potentially become part of the block include the aforementioned Henson show, The Late Night Buffet with Augie and Del; a new comedy from MadTV impressionist Frank Caliendo; Off the Road with Andy Daly; and a comedy about news called What's News? Yeah, that's never been done before a million times. Jenny Hunter, a producer for both The Daily Show and Man Bites Dog, has also signed a development deal with the network. Out of all of these, I'm most interested in Late Night Buffet, but then, I have a thing for puppets.
