There's no money to be made in comedy. We see that in the second episode of Baskets, where sad-clown funnyman Chip faces eviction from the motel he's been staying in if he can't dig up some extra cash. Working for sub-sub-minimum wage at the Bakersfield rodeo just doesn't cut it... More »
We've seen scores of hilarious skits from comedy duo Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key, including a spot-on recap of Game of Thrones. Of course, Key & Peele was one of many shows that tragically ended in 2015, but that only means the boys can move on to bigger and better things. Show More Summary

The Grinder has quickly become one of the strangest shows I've ever seen. Though it began as a gentle, fish-out-of-water family comedy with some meta-analysis of TV tropes, it's veered suddenly into a wider exploration of show business. In "The Olyphant in the Room," it's trying to achieve some bizarre... More »
The challenge for Brooklyn Nine-Nine has always been striking a balance between crime and comedy. When the show takes crime too seriously, we're stuck with the weird, jokeless action interludes that have never been the show's strong suit. When it treats things too humorously, though, we're left wondering why these... More »
Happy New Year, friends! I hope you all had a fantastic New Year's Eve. Mine was pretty low-key; I stayed home and worked alone. Basically, I was like Diane Lane in every romantic comedy right before she finds a man. Anyway, it's a New Year and a new episode of... More »

Last January, I recapped the premiere season of the fantastical, funny and admittedly flawed musical comedy Galavant. And even those of us who couldn't get enough of its wacky songs, celebrity cameos and all things Timothy Omundson admitted it was...
As Ash vs. Evil Dead continues to march on, the series continues to satisfy on almost every level. This week’s episode, ‘The Killer of Killers’ definitely continues this trend, as the episode doled out equal parts comedy and horror throughout its 30 minutes of television. Really, fans of the original Evil Dead, this one was […]
What's there to say about iZombie that hasn't been said? It's a great procedural and genre show, a budding buddy comedy and a hilarious yet tragic dramedy that can balance swings in tone and mood better than almost anything else on TV (except maybe Jane the Virgin). Show More Summary
If we want to continue loving the best parts of The Mindy Project — its endless supply of one-liners and random references, quirky characters like Morgan and Tamra, send-ups of absurd New York life and romantic comedies, as well as Mindy herself — we'll have to accept its mercurial nature....

The comedy television series "The Last Man on Earth" is back for its second season and it has kicked off an episode that seemingly went back to the basics—just Phil Miller alone in the world. Well, he wasn't alone until he made an unconscious mistake.
In a network fall that’s once again loaded with indifferent, focus-grouped comedies that seem to have been conceived and made in an entirely different dimension from the likes of Broad City, Louie, and Veep, the first installment of The Grinder isn’t a groundbreaking entry, but it at least shows some...
