‘Tosh.0’ Lands Three-Season Renewal From Comedy Central

‘Tosh.0’ Lands Three-Season Renewal From Comedy Central
Comedy Central has given a three-season renewal to “Tosh.0,” the weekly series featuring comedian Daniel Tosh riffing on the best and worst of the internet.

The deal keeps “Tosh.0” on Comedy Central through 2020. The series bows its 10th season on March 17. It’s been a mainstay of the cabler since 2009.

“Knowing when to move on in show business is highly overrated,” Tosh said in announcing the deal.

Comedy Central chief Kent Alterman said the long-term renewal was an easy call. The show is a big social media driver for the Viacom cabler, generating some 9.1 million fans (and counting) for the show’s Facebook page.

“I know it makes Daniel uncomfortable to publicly acknowledge our love and affection for each other, but we couldn’t be more thrilled to extend our relationship with him,” said Alterman.

“Tosh.0” is exec produced by Tosh, Charlie Siskel, Nick Malis, and Christie Smith. Monika Zielinska is the exec in charge of production

Comedy Central Sets ‘Review’ Final Season Premiere for March
The final season of Comedy Central’s “Review” has a premiere date: March 16.

Review” stars Andy Daly as critic Forrest MacNeil, who does not review boring things like films, food or art. Instead, Forrest reviews the most intense experiences of life itself — by living them.

The Great Indoors Season 1 Review

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

The fact that CBS’s newest comedy, The Great Indoors, airs after the network’s longest-running, mega-hit The Big Bang Theory bodes well for the freshman comedy’s potential to gain some kind of an audience. It’s stocked with fine actors from a collection of other well-known shows and movies, it’s got a decent workplace comedy premise, and series creator Mike Gibbons (Tosh.0) at least knows how to wrangle together the show’s quirky cast into something resembling a neighborhood in the vicinity of charming.

Yet, it’s an effort to make it through just the 20-minute pilot. Many listable reasons throw themselves onto the rails that is the eventual train wreck of The Great Indoors, all acceptable excuses for changing the channel until Mom comes on, or maybe just turning off the TV completely and discovering these mythical “outdoors” that

Interviewing 'The Neon Demon's' defiled corpse: 'It kept going further'

Interviewing 'The Neon Demon's' defiled corpse: 'It kept going further'
Note: The below interview contains plot spoilers for The Neon Demon. The Neon Demon is a hugely divisive film that for me was never less than a fascinating watch. Love him or loathe him, Nicholas Winding Refn takes things to extremes that most other filmmakers wouldn’t dare; in Neon Demon specifically, the late-second and third acts are full of moments both shocking in their audacity and striking in how they manage to lure us in even as they repel us. Chief among these is a scene involving Jena Malone’s makeup artist Ruby and a blond female cadaver that gets very uncomfortable very fast. The more obvious, and equally valid, approach here would be to reach out to Refn and/or Malone to discuss the mechanics of an incredibly disturbing, button-pushing scene, and yet -- as someone perpetually fascinated by those who occupy the lower rungs on the Hollywood
