Sarah Silverman loves America so much that she decided the best way to understand what’s going in America on a daily basis was to get out into streets and talk with people from conceivable demographic group – and especially those whose views conflicted with her own.
Hulu has released a video that shows us (and her) how well she is/is not figuring out the complexities of America.
The show is called I Love You, America and it premieres Thursday, October 12th – only on Hulu.
Hulu has given a new Funy or Die series – starring Sarah Silverman – a straight-to-series order.
The show’s working title is I Love You, America and would feature Silverman in a ten-episode order of a weekly half-hour topical show to discuss the current political/emotional landscape of the country.
Remember Dan Harmon, creator of NBC’s Community (now on Yahoo), was fired from his own show? Well, after being canned, he took a bit of time to take his disappointment, rage, cynicism and ironic wit on the road. The result is the odd documentary Harmontown.
Check out the first trailer for Harmontown after the jump. Harmontown will open in L.A. on October 3rd and be available on VOD on October 10th.
If there’s anything more confusing than a list of Emmy® winners, I’m not sure I know what it is. Even after some horrendous snubs (not just Tatiana Maslany…), there were still a lot of worthy nominees this year. The problem is that deserved wins by the consistently excellent Breaking Bad (for example) were cheapened by repeat wins by shows that were not as good as other nominees in their class (Modern Family, for example).
For every win for something new and amazing (Fargo), there was a win that made no sense at all (Kathy Bates over Allison Tolman? WTF?). And how does Louis C.K. win for comedy writing and lose comedy series to Modern Family, Academy? You just said that Louie had the best (ie: funniest) comedy writing!
Anyway, follow the jump for a complete list of Emmy winners and, quite possibly, a wee bit of commentary.
Ralph is the destructive bad guy in an 8-bit arcade game that’s celebrating its 30th Anniversary. The problem is that he’s not happy with his role. Wreck-It Ralph is the story of his search for something better – and possibly the best video game movie ever.
Sarah Silverman is an actor/stand-up comic who looks like an especially pretty girl next door while writing material that can best be described as whimsically shocking. How else to explain an episode of her The Sarah Silverman Program that weds a low-budget animated Little Mermaid spoof with bedwetting?
On Friday, Sarah Silverman talked to a number of television bloggers about the new season of The Sarah Silverman Program [Comedy Central, tonight, 10:30/9:30C]. Subjects ranged from the personal [her new boyfriend] to the sensitive [her ongoing battle with depression] as well as the way her show is written and why it gets so outrageous.
Can someone please explain Sarah Silverman’s appeal? She’s never done anything that I found funny, granted I’ve only seen her in 30 second increments. The 3rd Season Premiere of her Comedy Central Show, The Sarah Silverman Program debuts tonight at 10:30 pm (EST).
