Dana Carvey and Spike Feresten teaming up for new show

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 11th 2010 4:26PM
CarveyThe Dana Carvey Show is one of my favorite sketch comedy shows of all-time. It was massively creative, probably well ahead of its time, hell on advertisers, and some of it was funnier than SCTV in its glory days. So of course it didn't last that long.

Now Carvey and Spike Feresten have announced that they're joining forces to do a new sketch show for FOX. It doesn't have a name yet, but both FOX and ABC were interested in it. They went with FOX because they'll probably be more friendly to a weird sketch show like this (and also let's not forget that The Dana Carvey Show was on ABC). Carvey and Feresten will write and star in the show. The pilot will be filmed in February.

Feresten was a writer on Carvey's old show? For some reason I didn't know that. That makes me want to see this new show even more. Both of these guys should be on TV again. (You can watch all 8 episodes of The Dana Carvey Show at SlashControl.)

Will Sykes' Saturday show sink Spike?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Apr 2nd 2009 9:03AM
Talkshow with Spike FerestenThe earlier announcement that comedienne Wanda Sykes might be one hair pulling development meeting away from getting her own late night show was a promising one.

She's got a good bit of star power to boost her ratings. She's had a good bit of experience as a late night comedy writer, most notably with The Chris Rock Show and least notably with The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show. She's also damn funny.

If Fox turns her into their newest late night comedy show host, it raises a worrying question: what will become of Spike Feresten?

Spike Feresten gets 30 more minutes of eyeball time - VIDEO

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 16th 2009 1:07PM
One of television's least appreciated talk shows is one step closer to getting some real estate in Fox's front store window.

Starting this Saturday, Talkshow with Spike Feresten will have one-hour episodes instead of the measly little piecemeal 30 minutes Fox has been giving it.

Still not convinced that Fox is giving this show the treatment it deserves? It's not only giving it more time, but it's also bumping it ahead of Mad TV for six whole weeks. Wow, maybe this means Fox will give Mike Judge a new animated show and will replace it ... with Family Guy.

All Jonathan wants for Festivus

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 16th 2008 4:28PM

FestivusEvery year as Festivus comes, we here at TV Squad pump out these "all I want" lists and I always end up feeling guilty because, like everyone else, I come up with a ton of different requests...

I hope Lost is good.
Please don't let 24 suck.
Why can't Rachael Ray just disappear already?

...and on and on and on. Well not this year. This year I'm going to be conservative instead of greedy in the hopes that the Festivus gods will grant my one and only wish:

Come May 2009, please let Jay Leno fail in the 10PM time slot.
