Adult Swim Premieres Brian Huskey’s Mr. Neighbor’s House, and Two Very Intriguing Pilots (One from Rob Corddry and the Other Starring Jason Alexander) Tonight
Mr. Neighbor’s House premieres at midnight followed by the pilot Hindenburg Explodes from Rob Corddry at 12:30AM. Then, Adam Lustick’s pilot The Mark Lembeck Technique starring Jason Alexander closes out the hour at 12:45AM.
Mr. Neighbor’s House looks to be twisted parody of Mister Rogers Neighborhood, The Mark Lembeck Technique, as seen in this promo, follows a really off-kilter therapist played by a frail voiced Jason Alexander. Corddry reimagines the events on a certain infamous dirigible leading up to the crash of the Hindenburg in Hindenburg Explodes.
All in all, it’s an evening of alternative realities, Adult Swim style, and we’re on board for that.
Get a Look at Adult Swim’s Twisted Parody of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, “Mr. Neighbor’s House”
If you’ve been missing Childrens Hospital, you’ve got something to look forward to this week.
Brian Huskey, Jason Mantzoukas, Rob Corddry, Nick Kroll, Jon Daly, Steve Agee, and Jesse Falcon all teamed up to make a live action kid’s show that takes Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and makes it go on a really bad drug trip of sorts. Many of them last worked together on the award winning Adult Swim dark comedy Childrens Hospital making this project one you might want to check out.
Here’s a promo for Mr. Neighbor’s House. It premieres on Friday, December 2nd at midnight and goes for a full half hour as opposed to 15 minutes.
Get a 360° View of People of Earth’s Alien Abduction Support Group
TBS’ long-awaited alien abduction comedy People of Earth will be coming at the end of the month.
To get a real sense of the “experiencers” that the show follows, you can now get a look at what their support group is like in this 360° video.
Spoiler alert: people who have been abducted by aliens can be a few sticks short of a bundle.
Another Period’s Season 2 Trailer Gets More ‘One-Percent-ier’ Than Ever
If there’s a takeaway from the trailer from the brand new season of Comedy Central’s Another Period, it’s probably to never challenge the outrageously wealthy to be more outrageous, especially in The Gilded Age.
The Bellacourts will see your challenge for this second season and raise you as much havoc as they can afford and then some as they probably have some more money stashed away somewhere or can marry into more wealth.
See for yourself in the season two trailer here.
Look for the series premiere in two weeks on Wednesday, June 15th at 10PM on Comedy Central.
Another Period Gets Picked Up for 3rd Season Before 2nd Season Premiere
Just as the Kardashians are sticking around, The Bellacourts aren’t going anywhere either.
Another Period, Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome’s series based on real turn-of-the-century opulence is going to keep showing off the 1% of the 1900s being as wasteful as they can possibly be for a 3rd season at Comedy Central.
Season 2 doesn’t premiere until next month on June 15th, but the renewal just got announced today, which hopefully means Comedy Central knows something really great about season 2 that the rest of us don’t.
Take a Gander at Adult Swim’s Exciting New Slate of Series, Specials, Pilots, Call-In Live Streams, Etc.
Looks like Adult Swim is going to continue to stay ahead of the curb.
Not only do they have an exciting crop of original series, specials, and pilots here, but they have a bunch of daily/weekly events that are scheduled like linear TV series, but will only be only live streaming online, then archived afterwards. Apparently, the success of sports show parody FishCenter has paved the way for more real time, interactive programming/content from Adult Swim.
Here’s what they’ve got going right at the moment:
-A Robot Chicken: The Walking Dead Special
–Montana James-frequent Adult Swim informercial collaborators Nick Corirossi and Charles Ingram that is most likely an absurdist take on Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade.
–Mr. Neighbor’s House–Brian Huskey plays a rage-filled version of Mr. Rogers-esque host.
–Brett Gelman’s Dinner in America–Brett Gelman and Jason Woliner’s latest twisted, dark meta special with have a dinner where Brett attempts a conversation about race.

–Million Dollar Extreme Presents: World Peace-Sam Hyde, Nick Rochefort, Charles Carroll finally get to bring their self-described “super pure tragicomedy” to TV.
–Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio-A new “one-off bits, shorts and songs” filled show from China, IL’s Brad Neely.
–Decker: Unclassified-the action series parody starring Tim Heidecker gets upgraded to a full series.
–Art Prison–Tom Kauffman and Paul Isakson get the guiding hand of Dan Harmon and Starburns Industries for this live action pilot that puts an America’s Got Talent-style show in the so-called Prison for the Performing Arts.
–Lazor Wulf-Henry Bonsu and China IL’s Daniel Weidenfeld brings us all a wolf that has a laser on his back and who just happens to believe love has no limit.
–Stupid Morning Bullshit-call-in show that mixes delving into pop culture and setting things on fire. Weekdays at 8AM PST
–Williams Street Swap Shop-Viewers trade goods in a sort call-in swap meet. Weekdays at 10AM PST
–Crosswords-call-in show that seeks help finishing the NY Times crossword puzzle. Weekdays at 11AM PST
–FishCenter-Fish in a fish tank are made, via sports show style graphics, to look like they’re in a fiercely competitive league. Weekdays at 1PM PST
–Call of Karaoke-call-in karaoke is mashed-up with hosts trying to play various shoot-em up style video games. Wednesdays at 2:30PM PST
–Daytime Fighting League-Real people are pitted against each other in ridiculous competitions during the workday. Calls are taken from viewers wanting to weigh in on the “fight”. Thursdays at 2PM PST
–Sports Bitches-sports in the real and virtual world meet as what would be a normal sports shows gets another layer of the host playing sports video games on top of it. Thursdays at 3PM PST
–Development Meeting-Adult Swim development executives will supposedly take call-in pitches as well as get sneak peeks and previews. Thursdays at 4:30PM PST

Here’s Another Installment of College Humor’s “If Google Was a Guy”
Having a clean, simple, faceless interface to literally type anything you wish to query is part of why we Google anything our hearts, minds, and other parts wish to Google.

If Google Was a Guy, We’d See How Frustrating It Would Be with Siri
College Humor does a third installment of “if Google was a guy” with Brian Huskey as the “guy” and shows that interacting with Siri is just as frustrating on Google’s end as it is ours. Also, Google as a person must have a high tolerance for being aggravated.
If Google Was a Real Life Office You Had To Go To…
College Humor shows us why we should be glad that we’re asking the non-sentient, sans human body Google all the questions that we ask Google.
Basically, you’d get a real judgmental look from the guy you’re asking 24/7/365. Watch the clip here.
