What's new and what's coming back on Comedy Central
Here's the rundown on what Comedy Central has in store for this summer:
Returning series include Mind of Mencia (new season starts July 8 at 10:00 p.m.), and a new Comedy Central Roast premiering sometime in August, though we don't know who'll be roasted just yet.
Now on to the new stuff:
In June look for new stand-up specials from Larry the Cable Guy (Larry the Cable Guy: Morning Constitutions on June 3 at 8:00 p.m.), Brian Reagan (June 10 at 10:00 p.m.) and Daniel Tosh (Daniel Tosh: Completely Serious on June 17 at 10:00 p.m.).
Another stand-up special featuring comedian Gabriel Iglesias will premiere August 4.
Lil' Bush, an animated series featuring the president and his staff (not to mention his enemies) as little kids a la The Little Rascals, debuts June 13 at 10:30 p.m.
In July, some of your favorite webisodes make it to the TV screen for Web Shows, a showcase of the best series from ComedyCentral.com and Atom Entertainment, including "Golden Age" (which I said would make a great addition to Adult Swim) and "I Love the '30s." It premieres July 2 at the ungodly hour of 2:00 a.m., but that's why we have DVRs.
Also in July, the aforementioned American Body Shop, yet another improvised series in the vein of Reno 911!, Dog Bites Man and Halfway Home. The series premieres July 8 at 10:30 p.m.
