The dramas like “NCIS” and “This Is Us” premiered last week, but this Tuesday, it’s all about comedy. These are the shows kicking off new seasons tonight.
“Drunk History” is one of the most anticipated returns. Later this season, “Hamilton” star Lin-Manuel Miranda will narrate the history of Alexander Hamilton. However, in the Season 4 premiere, Steve Berg, Doug Jones and Duncan Trussell narrate the “Great Escapes” episode, which includes stories from Devil’s Island, the Titanic and a prison. Thomas Middleditch and Ron Funches help act out the historical tales on Comedy Central.
“Tosh.0” returns for Season 8 as well. Daniel Tosh heads to Alabama and gets his DNA analyzed. He also shows his audience why anesthesia and cell phones just don’t mix well.
The laughs don’t stop there. Comedy Central is taking viewers back to Meltdown Comics and Collectibles. “The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail” returns for Season 3. Jay Larson, Byron Bowers, Brian Posehn and Wild Horses are going to do stand up sets in the back of the comic book store.
If you’re looking for something more serious, try Syfy. “Aftermath” follows a family as they realize that the world is coming to an end. The apocalyptic journey wasn’t easy on the actors either. Actress Taylor Hickson dished to International Business Times about getting injured while doing stunts on set. Check out what she said HERE.
Those who would rather have a dose of reality TV and teenagers can try “Sweet 15: Quinceañera.” The new series follows party planners and cousins Alexis and Jarling Perez as they plan extravagant parties for girls turning 15. A quinceañera is a tradition that celebrates a girl becoming a woman, but the rite of passage can be totally over the top. Parents go to Bella Miami, Alexis and Jarling’s family business, to help create the perfect party.
“Star Plates” is another new reality show, but it’ll probably be a little less dramatic. The Food Network program puts celebrities behind the stove in their favorite restaurants. In the series premiere, actress Mindy Kaling visits chef Marcus Samuelsson at Red Rooster in Harlem, New York. Together they’ll make his signature Fried Chicken Royale dish. It’ll have to be up to his standards since the “Mindy Project” star is his line chef for the evening.
