Review: 'You're the Worst' - 'Spooky Sunday Funday': The fix is in?

28 October 2015 8:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "You're the Worst" coming up just as soon as I recognize this building from the opening credits of "Better Off Ted"... The original "Sunday Funday" was arguably the funniest episode of "You're the Worst" season 1, but also the show's most atypical installment, collecting lots of funny jokes ("Daniel Craig?!?! He looks like an upset baby!") and situations but keeping the dysfunction of Jimmy and Gretchen's relationship to a minimum. Given the episode's popularity, I wouldn't have blamed Stephen Falk and company if they had just stuck to the basics for it, like the "Bar Wars" episodes of "Cheers," or the annual Halloween contest on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." But "Spooky Sunday Funday" is something else entirely, not only combining the original concept with Halloween costumes and tons of horror movie tropes, but something that stays deep inside the tough emotional territory the show's been exploring lately.

2 October 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Dr. Ken (Community‘s Ken Jeong) is the latest in a long line of TV doctors whose bedside manner could use a little work.

In ABC’s latest attempt to give Last Man Standing a timeslot buddy, Ken Park is portrayed as a horny husband, an overprotective father for all of the wrong reasons, and a doctor who thinks all of his patients are “whiny, complainy bitches.”

Five things to know about the return of 'Key & Peele'

8 July 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Though Comedy Central is referring to the new batch of "Key & Peele" episodes as a new season, these were produced immediately after the ones that finished airing back in December. As a result, the new ones (I've seen three) are very much in keeping with the spirit of what I wrote about late last year, and how the sketch series did some of its best, if darkest, work relatively late in its life. So beyond telling you that "Key & Peele" remains funnier than may possibly be legal, here are five things to know about the new episodes: 1. The "True Detective" structure is still there. Same new opening credits, same linking device of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele talking while on an endless road trip. Given how much that stuff was modeled on the first season of "True Detective," rather than the stuff with Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell and Bird Mask, »
