Fall Comedy Roundup

By Zan Romanoff

September 10, 2013 | 9:15 am

I did a quick roundup of some of the fall shows I'm looking forward to a few weeks ago; now, with premiers starting first thing next week Splitsider has a comprehensive look at the comedy slates, including shows making their debuts and those returning for triumphant final seasons. (I guess this means I'll start watching How I Met Your Mother again? The show has gone from clever and quotable to boring, misogynistic hackery in the last few seasons, but I'm loyal enough to want to know how it all ends.)

    Either you know about Connie Britton's hair or you don't. If you do you're probably familiar, too, with her way around a soft southern accent, her insistence on playing female characters with depth and dimension, and her ability to bring even flat or soapy scripts to life; if you... read on

    First, shana tova! And happy official end of summer to you all. Fall television should be getting going as September rolls on (and, god willing, cools down) but this week's allotment was just sad: a boring, obligatory activewear for Heidi Klum challenge on Project Runway which had... read on

    An excellent corrective to Luther's relentless sexism is another BBC show, The Fall, which premiered in May of this year and is now available in its entirely on Netflix. It could be just another routine procedural: the plot concerns a serial killer who stalks and strangles young,... read on

  • The Newsroom: Second season, second thoughts

    The Newsroom is back again for the first time!

    I was hesitant to hop in the saddle for a second go at Newsroom, especially with an already packed schedule of Breaking Bad, Top of the Lake, re-re-watching Orange is the New Black and replying to a heavy influx of fan mail after one... read on

    Mallory Ortberg recently proposed one of the best things I've heard in a long time: a type of costume party where every attendee has to "come dressed as an unpopular wife from a prestigious drama on cable television and treat each other with respect the entire night." Ortberg is... read on

    A really absurd sounding piece of modern art-y word salad is Heidi Klum reciting the rules, regulations and prize package of this season's Project Runway just before the models walk each week. It's a blind runway show and Tim Gunn doesn't judge but he consults the judges and he has... read on
