“The revolution will be podcasted and it will be hilarious,” says W. Kamau Bell, one half of the funny duo behind the new podcast “Politically Re-Active with W. Kamau Bell and Hari Kondabolu,” which premieres June 29 on Slate’s podcast network, Panoply. The comedians and friends will speak to special guest politicos and comedians in each 20-25 minute episode. Each episode will have a specific theme and will include signature comedy segments.
Bell calls himself a “socio-political comedian,” and was the host of the short-lived FX comedy series “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell,” for which Kondabolu served as a writer and correspondent. Boasting Chris Rock as executive producer, the show hired all stand-up comedians as writers, including up-and-comers Aparna Nancherla (recently named one of Variety’s Top Ten Comics to Watch) and Guy Branum (“Awkward,” “Chelsea Lately”).

When Awkward was last renewed, it was reportedly for a fifth and final season, leaving the show effectively cancelled, which is... you know, awkward, especially with some of the developments in the finale. Showrunners Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler would like to do a sixth season and say most of the cast is game to continue the series, too. In other words, the show's fate is up to MTV.
Awkward stars Ashley Rickards, Beau Mirchoff, Nikki DeLoach, Jillian Rose Reed, and Brett Davern. In last night's Awkward season five and possibly series finale, there were some twists. Did you see them coming? Chessler previously said it was designed as a series finale, just in case it is the end. Did it feel like one, to you?

If you’re not sure whether to approach Tuesday’s one-hour Awkward (MTV, 10/9c) as a season or series finale, there’s a good reason for that: It’s a little bit of both.
“We always thought it should feel like the ending of a chapter,” executive producer Mike Chessler tells TVLine of the episode. “We really wanted this finale to have pivotal moments for all of the characters, most importantly for Matty and Jenna, since that’s the central relationship of the show. It does feel complete in its own way.”
Comedian Monty Geer is showing his appreciation for his mom, and warning his fans to never fall asleep around their friends, in two new videos that he shared on his Instagram. The actor, who has garnered fame for playing Cole on MTV’s comedy-drama series, ‘Awkward,’ released the two videos, as he’s creating a platform on social media where he can share his own original and hilarious content. In the actor’s ‘Mother’s Day Video,’ Geer starts off by thanking his mother for raising him. With Lukas Graham’ popular soul song, ’7 Years,’ playing in the background, the clip parodies the troubles mothers and sons regularly face, from arguing over music and [ Read More ]

“My hope is that Faking It will be the first show that started what I call the post-gay era on television,” series creator Carter Covington tells The Hollywood Reporter. “We always tried to approach the storytelling as coming from a place beyond coming out stories and really exploring the lives of all of our characters, regardless of their sexuality. »

Rush Hour isn’t a total cop out.
Though the pilot for CBS’ adaptation of the Chris Tucker/Jackie Chan comedy is little more than a regurgitation of the film that spawned two sequels, there are indications that The Powers That Be (which include Cougar Town vets Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick) are well aware of what does and does not work about the film 18 years later.
Tuesday’s Faking It began with one of the MTV comedy’s funniest bits to date (“Happy Hump Day!”) and ended with a heartbreaking conversation “Karmy” fans have dreaded for weeks.
“It was hard to film,” Katie Stevens tells TVLine of the episode’s final scene. “There’s never a time when Karma and Amy haven’t made up, so at the end of this episode, it feels like it’s over.”
That said, Stevens is excited that fans are “finally hearing why Karma does the things she does, »
