HBO’s Tour De France Mockumentary “Tour de Pharmacy” Premieres Tonight
Though it’s cycling, this might be one of the crazier sports comedy specials that HBO has done in recent memory.
With that in mind, catch the world premiere of Tour de Pharmacy on HBO tonight.
Watch Trailer for HBO’s Latest Sports Comedy Special “Tour De Pharmacy”
HBO has already done specials parodying tennis, 7 Days in Hell, and baseball, Ferrell Takes the Field. Now, they’re moving on to the world of competitive cycling, specifically the part where they catch athletes using PEDs.
Called Tour De Pharmacy, they’ve got Andy Samberg, John Cena, Daveed Diggs, Orlando Bloom, Freddie Highmore, and even, somehow, Lance Armstrong playing a part in this Tour De France send-up.
See for yourself in this trailer.
Look for the premiere on July 8th at 10PM on HBO.
Trailer for “Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special” Lives Up to Title
When you think of Michael Bolton doing a TV special for Valentine’s Day, there are a certain set of images that come to mind.
However, when you add Comedy Bang! Bang! and The Lonely Island into the mix, you get a sort of doubling down on the man, the myth, and the legend that is Michael Bolton.
See what CBB and The Lonely Island teaming up with Bolton actually looks like in the trailer for Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special.
If that already has you going, you can go watch the whole thing on Netflix right now.
Watch The Red Band Trailer for The Lonely Island’s Movie “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping”
Nicole Byer, Jessica McKenna, and Alison Rich Will Star in a New, Lonely Island-Produced, Paul Scheer-Directed Sketch Variety Series “Party Over Here” at Fox
Though it’s going to air on Saturdays, it’s not going against SNL.
Party Over Here, which is also the name of The Lonely Island’s production company, will be the new late night sketch show that will run on Fox’s schedule. For years, Fox didn’t have any late night programming to really speak of and let their last sketch series, Mad TV, live in the shadow of what all its cast did after the show ended (i.e. Key & Peele).
This time around, Fox has plenty of comedy fan buzzworthy talent in the ranks of Party Over Here. Not only are The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer) executive producing the series, but Paul Scheer is directing and the aforementioned Nicole Byer, Jessica McKenna, and Alison Rich, who have all gained comedic notoriety on their own over the last few years, are headlining the cast.
The series is set for a Sat. Mar. 12th premiere at 11PM and will very notably not air against Saturday Night Live. Party Over Here will only be a half hour and also not broadcast live.
All of those moves are probably for the best.
Get a Better Taste of HBO’s Faux Sports Documentary “7 Days in Hell” With This New Trailer
Andy Samberg and Kit Harrington go all out and beyond and everything else you can imagine in how they would make a tennis match go 7 days long in the faux sports documentary special 7 Days in Hell.
If anything, after watching this trailer, you’ll probably, ironically, enjoy this specific 7 Days in Hell.
Look for its premiere on HBO on July 11th at 10PM.
Watch Tease For HBO Tennis Showdown Parody “7 Days in Hell”
Andy Samberg and Game of Thrones’ Kit Harrington face off in what has the makings of a great sports rivalry movie in 7 Days in Hell.
Two “tennis stars”, Aaron Williams and Charles Poole, go head-to-head in a “historic” tennis match that lasts a week complete with interviews from real and fake tennis people like John McEnroe and Will Forte.
Watch the teaser here and look for it to premiere on HBO on July 11th.
Up Next To The Emmys Host Plate, Andy Samberg
Seth Meyers shepherded The Emmys last year just fine, but Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have set a new standard for having fun in hosting awards show. Perhaps, knowing that, that’s why The Emmys have Andy Samberg set to oversee the evening’s ceremonies for 2015.
On Sept. 20th, The Emmys will air their telecast on Fox with Andy Samberg as the host. Given how Samberg like to play with the form of things like in his anti-roast at The Roast of James Franco, there should be plenty of bits and pranks through the whole show.
We can only wonder what his opening monologue will be like or if he will do an anti-monologue monologue.
Chelsea Peretti Talks Real Life Internet Trolls, Emojis, and The Terry Crew Voice Option on Waze on Conan
Chelsea Peretti got to sit down with Conan this week and revealed that she had encountered an Internet troll face to face, found that you can get the voice of her Brooklyn Nine Nine co-star, Terry Crews, on the Waze app, as well giving Conan and the rest of us a nice crash course in emoji vocabulary.
We’re guessing the underlying issue with that specific Internet troll is that she’s probably upset because she couldn’t get the Terry Crews voice on her Waze.
HBO Making a Wimbledon Mockumentary with Andy Samberg and Kit Harrington
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
HBO is pushing forward with their comedy branding by doing a sports mockumentary, specifically of the legendary tennis tournament known as Wimbledon. Andy Samberg and Kit Harrington will star as rival tennis players and Fred Armisen, Lena Dunham, Karen Gillan, Michael, Sheen, and more have also been cast.
This is being billed as an one-off comedy event at HBO, perhaps similar to those Greatest Events in Television History at Adult Swim.

Watch Trailer For Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine
A workplace comedy at a precinct in Brooklyn might peak some people’s interest, but seeing Andy Samberg, Terry Crews, Chelsea Peretti, Joe Lo Truglio bumbling around the bullpen of a police office is what shows promise to us for Fox’s new Brooklyn Nine Nine.
Give it a watch for yourself.
