AMERICA'S FUNNIEST NEWS SOURCE IS BACK ON TV

Premieres Tuesday, October 4, 2011 @ 10:00 PM ET/PT on IFC

IFC's hit comedy series from the minds of The Onion, Onion News Network, returns Tuesday, October 4 at 10:00PM ET/PT with ten all-new episodes. A tornado of truth decimating the mobile homes of deception, Onion News Network provides an essential 30-minute glimpse into the world's most powerful 24-hour news network.

Hosted by the world's top-rated news anchor, Brooke Alvarez, Onion News Network brings viewers the stories other cable news networks fail to report, from a massive asteroid set to destroy earth to an obese-rights extremist group's attempts to silence First Lady Michelle Obama.

The Onion News Network team, including missing-child justice reporter Shelby Cross, blissful morning show hosts Jim and Tracy, and new faces such as the ruggedly handsome and sometimes shirtless international reporter O'Brady Shaw, returns with more uncompromising facts. Whether analyzing Obama's willingness to let Republicans repeatedly kick him in the balls in exchange for nothing, covering the hot new 2012 frontrunner who happens to be in a coma, or investigating an underground spouse-fighting ring, the Onion News Network is always the most terrifying name in news.

Onion News Network is executive produced by Will Graham and Julie Smith for The Onion. The show is executive produced for IFC by Debbie DeMontreux, Christine Lubrano, Jennifer Caserta and Evan Shapiro for IFC.

About the Onion News Network

The Onion News Network launched in 2007 as a web video series for The Onion, America's Finest News Source. Onion News Network internet videos are watched by millions of viewers each week. In 2009, the Onion News Network was awarded a Peabody Award, with the committee stating, "the satirical tabloid's online send-up of 24-hour cable-TV news was hilarious, trenchant and not infrequently hard to distinguish from the real thing." The online series led to a television show on IFC by the same name, which debuted in January of 2011 and will return for its second season October 4.
