Comedy Bang Bang - Renewed for an extra-large second season

IFC announced they're renewing the very original / funny sketch comedy / talk show Comedy Bang Bang for a second season, doubling its first season order for a total of 20 episodes.

These 20 episodes starring Scott Ackerman, Reggie Watts and a bunch of big guests will air in two chunks of 10, one this summer and the other in autumn. Production on Season 2 is apparently already happening in LA.

Awesome !

And while I'm talking about fake talk shows, you should watch Newsreaders, Thursdays at 12:00am on Adult Swim. It's not always laugh-out-loud funny (i.e, the latest episode had two segments, one of them pretty average despite a great guest and the other one quite good ; episode 1.02 was awesome, episodes 1.01 and 1.03 had their very good moments and Ray Wise was priceless in all of them), but it's definitely worth a look (it's only 11-minute long, what do you have to lose, except 11 minutes of your life ?).

In other news, here's a teaser for Marc Maron's upcoming show, entitled Maron (10 episodes). There it is.

Most people won't be able to see it (I managed to see it somewhere a few days ago but now on most websites I get treated with a glorious "The video you are trying to watch cannot be viewed from your current country or location." for this teaser), and there's not much happening, but it tells us that the show is coming soon.

Maron being funny, and this show being a fictionalised version of his life à la Louie, it should be funny. So if Maron premières this Spring, maybe it'll share a timeslot with Out There (10 episodes), another new IFC comedy.

As I've said before, it has a pretty cool regular voice cast, and the guests are not bad either, we will hear people such as Nick Offerman, Jason Schwartzman, Ellen Page, Sarah Silverman, Jemaine Clement, Selma Blair, Stephen Root and Christian Slater.

The pilot (which aired as a sneak peek in early January) was alright, not exceptional in any way or filled with laughs but I'll check out the rest, and you should too. Out There starts its run next Friday on IFC.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
