November 2009 comedy channel highlights
Lewis Black’s Root Of All Evil (Series 1) AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE Thursdays at 10.00pm from November 5 Las Vegas. YouTube. Paris Hilton. What do they have in common? They all make Lewis Black want to strangle himself with a television cord. Lewis Black presides over this lively series in which two comedians take sides in debating which is the worse of two evils such as Oprah vs. the Catholic Church; Paris Hilton vs. Dick Cheney; Donald Trump vs. Viagra, American Idol vs. High School and other things that, as Black rants, "turn my mind into a cesspool of madness." Twisted arguments are offered in time-honoured debate style by Black’s esteemed colleagues - Patton Oswalt, Greg Giraldo, Andy Kindler, Andrew Daly, Kathleen Madigan, and Paul F. Tomkins. Recurring segments such as Black's "inquisitions," man on the street interviews and expert witnesses add to the guilty pleasures. Not since Judge Ito has there been this much contempt in court, but it's all directed at deserving targets. Join the abrasive comedian as he and his brethren take on pop culture, politics and all the things that most stupefy and pervert our society in a forum where the hot button issues of the day can be heard in the court of comedy opinion. LEWIS BLACK’S ROOT OF ALL EVIL absolutely pleases the court.

Better Off Ted AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE EPISODES Mondays at 9.30pm Series Finale November 30 Need cow-less meat grown in a test tube? Done. Need pumpkins that also double as weapons of mass destruction? No problem. BETTER OFF TED is a satirical office comedy about Ted, a successful good guy, who runs research and development at the morally questionable Veridian Dynamics. No achievement is too far-fetched and no invention too unorthodox. Ted loves his job, but he's starting to question the company's morally dubious practices. Do you manufacture the world’s best teeth whitener if it could also kill off all of the planet's fish? Probably not, but. Ted’s a single dad to a 7-year-old girl and is also fighting an attraction to co-worker Linda. He's already had his self imposed "one office affair" with überboss Veronica who is beautiful and possibly devoid of conscience and emotions. Veronica lets nothing get in her way when it comes to serving Veridian's needs, even if it means cryogenically freezing an employee for testing purposes. After all, research scientist Phil, survived (after he thawed out). BETTER OFF TED stars Jay Harrington as Ted, Portia de Rossi as Veronica, Andrea Anders as Linda, Jonathan Slavin and Malcolm Barrett as Research Assistants Phil and Lem.
