Comedy Central has renewed Key & Peele, Brickleberry and Drunk History, the network announced Wednesday.
Key and Peele
Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele have spent the last 11 months working on Season 3 of their sketch comedy show, the eponymous Key & Peele (Wednesdays, 10:30/9:30c, Comedy Central). The two took a break from locking in the final episodes of the season to call up TV Guide Magazine and discuss some of their more popular sketches.
TV Guide Magazine: We have to start with the Obama's Anger Translator sketches.
Jordan Peele: The fact that Obama responded to that, that meant to us that Luther the Anger Translator was kind of endowed as a real phenomenon. Obama would never endorse that if he didn't at least partly agree with what Luther was saying. So we love the fact that we kind of made Luther real.
The summer's most gripping series (until Breaking Bad started back up) rushes toward a shattering conclusion as BBC America's Broadchurch presents its penultimate episode (Wednesday, 10/9c), with broken lives and aching hearts on all fronts — including the ailing Hardy's (David Tennant), who won't let his latest collapse keep him from pursuing little Danny's killer: "Don't tell me what my limits are," he barks. As more skeletons are unearthed in this seaside community (and let's hope the mysterious Susan's poor dog isn't one of them), the toll of secrets and suspicion weighs heavy: "Once it's got its claws into you, it never lets go," says one of the many suspects whose world has been rocked by the tragic events and poisonous fallout. Don't let next week's denouement escape you as the new broadcast season gets underway with all of its bells and whistles.

E.T.s, go home! Less out-of-this-world than out of its league, ABC's The Neighbors (9:31/8:31c) stands out on the network's celebrated Wednesday comedy lineup like a wart on a hand model. Cheerfully ridiculous and unapologetically moronic, this aliens-among-us sitcom follows a long and mostly proudly silly TV tradition that includes Mork & Mindy, ALF and 3rd Rock From the Sun. Nothing wrong with a goofy guilty pleasure in the right circumstances and if blessed with the genius of a John Lithgow or a Robin Williams — or an ALF.
Peyton List and John Slattery
I'll have what he's having. (Well, maybe not the divorce.)
Roger Sterling's exhilarating LSD trip on Sunday's Mad Men set the tone and raised the bar for another wacky week in the world of TV. The disorienting centerpiece of another masterful episode exploring the needs and dashed desires of its central characters, Mad Men's acid trip (played to the tune of The Beach Boys' "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times") was harrowing
