Workaholics

Workaholics

Comedy Central’s unabashedly lowbrow sitcom Workaholics recently began airing the second half of its third season, which on its own would be reason enough to celebrate but the network has also ordered two more seasons of the series. If that news isn’t Tight Butthole then I don’t know what is. The show is a raunchy, wildly absurd Office Space for the 21st century about three happily directionless man-children, Adam (Adam DeVine), Blake (Blake Anderson), and Anders (Anders Holm). The guys are roomies, they work for a telemarketing company, and they’re pathologically incapable of doing the right thing–in two and a half seasons they’ve tried to barter for clean urine with a playground kid, wrecked a garage door with a soap-box-derby car, and schemed their way into getting a handicapped parking pass. Workaholics is sophomoric in the best possible way and if you have yet to sample what these lovable slackers are serving up, here are a couple of reasons why you should give this show a try.

After weeks of negotiations between FOX and Universal over the production costs of hit medical drama House M.D., the show has finally been renewed for an eighth season on the network. The issue of the negotiations stemmed from the fact that FOX wanted to drastically cut the cost of producing the show since the recent drop in ratings from last season. Series stars Hugh Laurie, Omar Epps, Olivia Wilde, and Robert Sean Leonard are all signed on to return, but co-stars Lisa Edelstein, Jesse Spencer, and Peter Jacobson are all still in the middle of negotiations. However, their returns are almost a guarantee. In addition to the renewal of House, the network also picked up three pilots to series including the comedy I Hate My Teenage Daughter starring Jaime Pressly, another comedy in the form of The New Girl starring Zooey Deschanel, Bones (which also saw a renewal a week ago) spin-off Finder which had a back door pilot on the hit crime-drama a couple weeks ago, and the new J.J. Abrams series Alcatraz.
