Network: Comedy Central
Stars: Blake Anderson, Adam DeVine, Anders Holm
Premiere Date: September 20
Why we’re excited: Comedy Central has done a fine job of promoting its more popular shows, like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, yet the network’s lesser known properties haven’t fared as well in the marketing department. As a result, uniquely hilarious titles like Ugly Americans and Workaholics have amassed fans under the radar, when, ideally, they’d be right up there with South Park and Tosh.0 in terms of visibility. You can’t get killer ratings if no one knows the show even exists.
We’ve already pledged our support for Ugly Americans, so now let us do the same for Workaholics. Simple in premise (three college buddies live together and work for the same telemarketing company), the ironically titled sitcom (they’re really slackers) utilizes the naturalistic chops of stars Adam Devine, Blake Anderson, and Anders Holm to milk laughs out of set-ups like shroom trips, competing for a promotion, and an Insane Clown Posse concert. It’s like Office Space minus Bill Lumbergh.
