It's mid-July, and Arsenio Hall is touring Stage 6 at the Sunset Bronson studio lot in Hollywood. With the exception of a few cables, the space is empty. But with the Sept. 9 launch of The Arsenio Hall Show in national syndication looming, it won't be barren for long. "This is raw," Hall says, pointing to the floor. "But this is where, one day, Madonna will walk."
Hot in Cleveland
At the risk of mixing one's classic-comedy metaphors ... While watching the ladies of The Mary Tyler Moore Show reunite for a chipper if undeniably poignant exercise in meta nostalgia on TV Land's Hot in Cleveland (Wednesday, 10/9c), you might find yourself wistfully recalling the old Carol Burnett Show theme: "I'm so glad we had this time together." This is especially true for the iconic buddy duo of Mary and Rhoda, with Mary Tyler Moore appearing even more frail than Valerie Harper, whose inspiring public battle with brain cancer pretty much defines the quality once attributed to Mary Richards: "spunk."
Andre may not have won the Shiva Bowl on The League last season, but did he end the season on a big personal high note.
"As we left last season, Andre and Trixie were engaged so we are picking up right where that left off with a wedding," co-creator and executive producer Jeff Schaffer said at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews Friday. "I think Andre and Trixie are preparing the...
Rob Corddry, Paul Scheer
Adult Swim's quirky comedy Childrens Hospital, which returns Thursday night at Midnight/11c, is switching things up for Season 5: The Emmy-winning show's characters have relocated to a U.S. Army base in Japan, where they clash with military personnel and hold a wine tasting during surgery.
Immediately following at 12:15/11:15c, The channel's faux crime procedural, NTSF: SD:SUV::, is also back for another season of fighting terrorists in San Diego through the most absurd means imaginable — including a visit to the city's Little London district (which was actually filmed in the real London).
We asked Childrens Hospital's Rob Corddry and NTSF's Paul Scheer to interview each other about their new seasons. The chat turned into a freewheeling conversation, ranging from the unusual appeal of USA's Suits to why neither of them find The Blues Brothers funny. An edited transcript follows.
Paul Scheer is among the many famous faces heading to Modern Family this season.

First time Emmy nominee Max Greenfield is one busy boy. Besides spinning fire sticks in the upcoming second season premiere of Fox's New Girl, he wrote, directed and starred in Axe body spray's new six-episode web series, Finding Susan Glenn (viewable on the Axe YouTube and Facebook pages). The unattainable dream girl Susan will be revealed in the final episode, which is Greenfield's favorite. "I find her and talk to her, but I won't tell you what happens," he says.
As if that weren't enough, Greenfield also shot a Twilight parody for the "Lights, Camera, Assassination" episode of Adult Swim's NTSF:SD:SUV::, which airs Thursday, Aug. 30 (12:15am/11:15pm c).
Anyone want a whore's bath?
Join us, won't you? Because we are raising a glass of Dave's turpentine-laced old-timey cocktail to Happy Endings, which served up a killer mix of sex dreams and screamingly funny sight gags last night that made us happier than a day spent eating floor bacon in a pair of ....

How did Seth Rogen land the role of Dirty Randy on The League? Well, he's a movie star, a skilled improviser. Oh yeah, and he looked the part.
