Update on The Sarah Silverman Program

Sarah SilvermanMark your calendars. Sarah Silverman's much-delayed Comedy Central show The Sarah Silverman Program will finally get its debut on February 1st at 10:30pm. A six-episode run of the program was scheduled to premiere this past summer - capitalizing on the positive press Silverman garnered for her concert film Jesus is Magic and her appearance in the documentary The Aristocrats. I suppose Comedy Central thought the market for clever, offensive comedy from beautiful women was saturated last summer so they waited to spring the goods on us in '07.

Silverman's television outing was conceived by Silverman along with Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab - names comedy fans may remember as being responsible for the failed Fox pilot turned cult favorite Heat Vision and Jack.

The Sarah Silverman Program features a character, by the name of "Sarah Silverman," whose absurd daily life is retold through a combination of scripted scenes and musical numbers. Speaking of musical numbers, consider taking a moment this holiday season to enjoy one of Silverman's most popular music videos - "Give the Jew Girl Toys." Happy Chrismukkah, comedy fans.

No offense, but Sarah Silverman tries so hard at being funny, and fails.
