Brian Posehn Thinks 'The Sarah Silverman Program' Is Done

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 13th 2010 2:03PM
Brian Posehn on 'The Sarah Silverman Program' Brian, one half of the gay couple Brian and Steve on 'The Sarah Silverman Program,' is a big fuzzy nerd. Which is okay, because that's also the personality of the man who plays him, Brian Posehn.

Posehn is a zombie-loving metalhead, a fan of cartoons and comic books, and a hilarious stand-up comedian. His new album, 'Fart & Wiener Jokes,' is out April 27th, featuring a shirtless, buffed up Posehn on the cover in a heap of comedy carnage (he says he wanted it to look like a Man O' War album).

We almost didn't get to see Brian and Steve again this year. Silverman and Comedy Central were at odds over the show's budget, until the LOGO network came in and threw in more money to make the production possible. Posehn isn't sure there will be a season four, but he's got plenty of other projects on tap (a possible spinoff for Brian and Steve, a faux reality show with party rockers Steel Panther, and a new Cartoon Network show).

Sarah Silverman, May Kadoody CampaignWhen she's not you-know-whating Matt Damon, Sarah Silverman is making a difference in the world by singing about the May Kadoody campaign on 'The Sarah Silverman Program' (Thu., 10:30PM ET on COM).

She's got plenty of supporters on hand to help, because these people really want to change the course of history. She almost gets a smack in the head with a trombone, but hey, it's for the children.

Watch the video after the jump.

Sarah Silverman Talks Season Three and More

by Nick Zaino, posted Feb 4th 2010 11:04AM
Sarah Silverman on The Sarah Silverman ProgramIt may not have seemed that Sarah Silverman was busy in 2009, especially since the last time we saw 'The Sarah Silverman Program' on Comedy Central was December of 2008. But she was busy behind the scenes.

Silverman filmed 'Saint John of Las Vegas' with Steve Buscemi, which played the festival circuit last year and gets a wider release this year, 'Peep World' with Michael C. Hall and Rainn Wilson, and wrote her memoir, 'The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee,' which is due in April.

Silverman was also negotiating with Comedy Central for 'The Sarah Silverman Program.' Comedy Central wanted to cut her budget from $1.1 million per episode to $850,000, which was a non-starter for Silverman and her partners.

Plenty of new Sarah Silverman on the way

by Nick Zaino, posted Jan 19th 2010 8:30PM
You can be forgiven if you thought The Sarah Silverman Program was done. The last time new episodes aired on Comedy Central was December of 2008, and in an era where some shows clock two seasons a year, that's an eternity.

Take heart, Silverman fans, the show returns for a third season on February 4, paired with last year's surprise hit, Important Things with Demetri Martin. And if you miss the season premiere, you can catch it again on the LOGO network on February 9, the day The Sarah Silverman Program: Season Two, Volume Two comes out on DVD.

Silverman and Martin return to Comedy Central

by Brad Trechak, posted Dec 22nd 2009 6:15PM
Sarah SilvermanComedy Central has announced that The Sarah Silverman Program will begin its third season and Important Things with Demetri Martin will begin its second season this coming February. It looks like Sarah Silverman's show made it despite the budget cuts.

Silverman's show was hilarious in its first season. The second season wasn't quite as good. The entire concept around her character gets grating over time (I find the same is true of her stand-up). The conclusion is that Sarah Silverman is best in small doses. Having a character that is so self-absorbed and unrecognizing of her own mistakes only works for characters like Master Shake. Of course if she actually learned a lesson, then the show would be over.

Having not seen any episodes of Demetri Martin's show, I cannot comment. I did enjoy his appearance on Flight of the Conchords (I still hum "Doggy Bounce" sometimes). How do you feel about the return of these shows?

'The Daily Show,' 'Colbert Report' Set HD Launch Date

by Leonard Jacobs, posted Dec 18th 2009 10:30AM
It only took the better part of a year to put in place, but finally you'll be able to count every hair in the perpetually cocked eyebrows of Stephen Colbert, or to admire the not-so-faint lines on the faux-astonished face of Jon Stewart.

That's because, according to Broadcasting and Cable, 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' and 'The Colbert Report' are at last joining the crystal-clear world of HD.

Kimmel and Silverman can't make up their minds

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 9th 2009 9:45AM
Sarah Silverman and Jimmy KimmelThey're together. No, wait, they're separated. No, wait. They're together again.

And now, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel and his girlfriend Sarah Silverman, star of Comedy Central's The Sarah Silverman Program, have split up again.

Matt Damon jokes aside, I was kind of hoping that they would prosper as a couple. I have no particular reason for this. I just find them each entertaining individually (although I found Silverman's humor grating after a while). Plus, I thought they were cute together.

Sadly, they suffer from the relationship problems of most of Hollywood: it doesn't last. Why is that? Is it that Hollywood creates a higher standard, or does Hollywood simply reflect the rest of American culture? Are most relationships like this, with the only difference being that a break-up anywhere else doesn't make headlines?

Of course, for all you single men, this means Sarah Silverman is back on the market. Ditto for the ladies and Jimmy Kimmel. Good luck with that.

Sarah Silverman gets saved by 'gay TV channel'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 4th 2009 9:03AM
Once again, people, I'm forced to asked the question, what the hell is going on here? Has black become white? Has up replaced down? Has Rush Limbaugh been saying he wishes Barack Obama all the best, while Janeane Garofalo is caught trying to start a fire in the White House rose garden?

The makers of The Sarah Silverman Program have been in a standoff with Comedy Central over their latest budget negotiations. Thankfully, a deal was reached and the show will return for another season, but the deal was even bigger than the budget they called into question.

Well, no one ever said you had to be good at math to run a major network, or any of the other basic requirements for passing standardized testing, for that matter. Fred Silverman's parents, for instance, had to hire their boy a special tutor so he could pass finger painting.

(9PM, CBS)
Bad news: series star William Petersen begins his departure from the show in tonight's episode.

The upside: Oscar-nominated Laurence Fishburne joins the cast as criminal pathologist Raymond Langston, who helps Petersen's Gil Grissom ferret out a serial killer.

Grissom also drops the news on his CSI cohorts that he's seeking less gruesome pastures, which sparks a variety of reactions (probably not dissimilar to the ones Petersen met when he announced he was leaving his sure-thing hit series). As for exactly how the farewell will play out, one more bit of bad news: tonight's installment is the beginning of a two-parter, which doesn't conclude until 2009.

(10PM, FX) 4th season finale
The Paddy's Pub gang is ending the season on a high note ... actually, a musical note, as Charlie's song 'Night Man' -- that disturbing little ditty he penned in season three's 'Sweet Dee Is Dating a Retarded Person' -- becomes a musical.

Dennis, Dee, Mac and Frank help Charlie stage his rock opera, a production which, without recalling all of the tune's lyrics, seems to be about one -- again, disturbing -- thing, but, Charlie insists, is about something altogether dfferent.

We'd love to elaborate more, but this is a family Website. Suffice it to say, it's Charlie and company at their politically incorrect best.

No, no, don't worry ... there'll be no "Bobby in the shower" scene as original 'ER' cast member Anthony Edwards returns to guest star in tonight's episode.

Dr. Mark Greene, sadly, is still dead from that season eight brain tumor. Instead, he returns via a flashback that cleverly sheds light on the past of Dr. Banfield (Angela Bassett). Stressed out from her hospital duties, Banfield decides to go for a run, where she happens upon a three-year-old girl who's drowning in a lake.

While trying to save the tot, Banfield flashes back to years earlier, when her son was a patient at County, and Dr. Greene was caring for him.

(9:30PM, NBC) 3rd season premiere
If '30 Rock's' second-consecutive Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy brings in new viewers, this episode will be an intro to the show at its best.

Liz Lemon (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series Tina Fey) has decided there's room to fill in her life after an 80-hour work week, so she's trying to adopt a baby.

But first, she has to impress adoption agent Bev (guest star Megan Mullally), who stops by the office just as Tracy is celebrating the success of his pornographic video game and Jack (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series Alec Baldwin) may have to sleep with Geiss's soap opera addict, Dora underpants-wearing, Mark Wahlberg-lovin' daughter to get his GE job back.

Sarah Silverman Program'The Sarah Silverman Program'
(10:30PM, Comedy Central)
It hardly qualifies as feel-good-TV, but tonight's 'Sarah Silverman Program' episode, which kicks off a round of seven new season two installments, does come with a lesson. When Sarah and Brian decide they haven't been spending enough time together, he proposes that he and his pal spend a day smoking weed.

Sarah, a marijuana virgin, starts to get wacky ideas when she smokes the wacky tobacco, which leads her to profess her love to the local diner cook, cook up a conspiracy theory involving a potato chip corporation and kidnap the chip company CEO.

So, the lesson: This is Sarah's brain on drugs. Don't do drugs.
