Alright, TV Watchers, raise your hand if you remember Ben Stiller’s last show, The Ben Stiller Show.
I didn’t think so.
But, lucky for us, Ben Stiller will be returning to the small screen with his new show this fall called, All Talk about the rises and pitfalls of a Jewish family living in Washington,D.C.I’m sure it will be all sorts of awesome.
Why will it be awesome?
First of all, the novelist Jonathan Safran Foer, who wrote the book Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, will be writing the script and he’s already written the pilot of the script as well.
With that in mind, it makes the news about this show being, “politically, religiously, culturally, intellectually, and sexually irreverent” sound that much cooler, doesn’t it?
Second awesome point is that Alan Alda, who hasn’t been in very much since M*A*S*H, but he’s still an awesomely funny guy and somehow I can totally see him with Ben Stiller (who will not only be staring in the show, but working as an Executive Producer beside Jon Foer).
Two of the other Executive Producers include, Scott Rudin and Eli Bush. Rudin and Stiller had their little duet prior to this with Zoolander. And I don’t know about you, but I totally thought Zoolander was funny. I mean, a little bit, right? It had its moments.
And speaking of HBO, the new show, Luck will be airing Sunday at 9 PM on HBO. Starring Nick Nolte, Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Farina as the awesome stellar cast and it will take place in a horse race track, and if you enjoy your share of characters who have dark pasts, a ton of problems and like to gamble, than this show is for you.
Not to mention, you might want to catch Kiefer Sutherland, who stars in a new show called Touch, airing tonight on Fox at, about a single father who discovers his son can predict the future. I know what you’re thinking, though – those predict the future shows are bound to crash into a bed of awfulness right? Maybe, or maybe not. It has been compared to Sutherland’s last television show 24 but with a bit more importance being set on the relationship between the father and his son.
You can catch Touch tonight on Fox 9/8 C and Luck this Sunday, January 29th on HBO at 9 Pm.
