Taxi and Numb3rs alum Judd Hirsch is plotting a possible return to the small screen.

Cult-favorite Comedian Marc Maron has spent the past four years quietly delving into celebrity psyches on his chat-show podcast WTF (wtfpod.com). Starting Friday, the 49-year-old curmudgeon is analyzing himself in the new IFC series Maron (Fridays, 10/9c), a dark comedy closely based on his own life. Brace yourself for his bipolar father (Judd Hirsch), a dead possum, a dominatrix and a horde of cameos by the likes of Denis Leary, Aubrey Plaza and Adam Scott.
"You're just not for everybody," comedic curmudgeon Marc Maron is told — by the more popular TV clown (at least among a comic-store backroom of Twitter nerds) Dave Foley, who plays a rather unflattering version of his real self, as does Maron, in IFC's new dark-side-of-laughter comedy series Maron (Friday, 10/9c). Sunnier than FX's Louie if only by virtue of being filmed in California, the sardonically squirm-inducing Maron alternates between slice-of-rant sitcom and self-obsessed podcast from the comedian's garage, where he vents on his unhappy personal life, his diarrhea-prone cats and his unruly, taunting Twitter following: "Who are these people? Don't they have lives?" You might well ask the same about Maron, although if he was happy (shades of Louie) there'd be no show.
