Dana Carvey and Spike Feresten teaming up for new show

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.)

Sketch Comedy Saturday: The Dana Carvey Show

This installment of Sketch Comedy Saturday is less about you pining for new episodes of Saturday Night Live and more about me having an excuse to use this old image of Stephen Colbert with a puppy. It makes me sick, it's so adorable. Unfortunately, The Dana Carvey Show wasn't just twenty-some minutes of Mr. Colbert nonchalantly holding baby animals, but it was still a pretty funny program.

Charlie Kaufman wants to return to television

Charlie KaufmanCharlie Kaufman, the screenwriter behind such cinematic mind#*$#s as Being John Malkovich, Adaptation and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, has gotten fed-up with the narrow-minded fickleness of film.

It's gotten so bad that he is "seriously thinking" about working for the narrow-minded fickleness of television.

Kaufman told The London Paper that the filmmaking process has infuriated and frustrated him so that he may make the jump to TV.

'The Best of Star Trek: The Original Series'

What It Is: The perfect introduction to the original 1960s series for people who just discovered (or rediscovered) the franchise through J.J. Abrams' big-screen adaptation.

What You Get: Four classic episodes featuring Captain Kirk (William Shatner), Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and the rest of the Enterprise crew -- 'City on the Edge of Forever,' 'Balance of Terror,' 'Amok Time' and 'The Trouble With Tribbles.'

Finally, The Dana Carvey Show is coming to DVD - VIDEO

Dana Carvey ShowSometimes it takes a few years to realize how funny a show was. I think that's what happened with The Dana Carvey Show.

It was on ABC for a very short time back in 1996, and even though a lot of people found it funny, a lot more people found it odd. Now the show is finally coming to DVD. Shout! Factory is releasing a two-DVD set on May 12 that will not only have all of the episodes uncut, the set will also include a bonus episode of the show that never aired.

I often compare this show to The Ben Stiller Show, and though I loved both shows, I think The Dana Carvey Show was tighter and put their ideas across in a better way. Not too many sketches from this show went on and on to ruin the joke. But that would be a good DVD to have: the best moments from each!

After the jump, a little piece of what you'll see on the DVDs (yup, that's Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert). AOL Video has more episodes.
