"Brickleberry" (Series Premiere)

Tuesday, September 25 at 10:30 p.m.

In the series premiere of the animated half-hour series, Brickleberry National Park is facing closure, but not if the park's dysfunctional park rangers can help it! Steve has been "Ranger of the Month" every month for years, so he feels threatened when Ethel is transferred from Yellowstone National Park to help whip the park into shape. Connie and Denzel are two unique rangers that each bring special skills (or in Denzel's case, lack of skills) to the job, and Woody is the hapless Head Ranger who puts nothing above his beloved park, except his adopted bear cub, Malloy. Tune in to see the crazy bunch of park rangers as they do their worst to keep the park running in this new animated series created, written and executive produced by Waco O'Guin (MTV2's "Stankervision) and Roger Black (MTV2's "Stankervision") and executive produced by Daniel Tosh ("Tosh.0").

"South Park" (Fall Season Premiere)

Wednesday, September 26 at 10:00 p.m.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, two lively comedic actor-writers used to being on the outside looking in, examine life in a provocative and irreverent way, through a combination of filmed sketches and live stage segments. Whether it's satirizing the President, spoofing musical acts, or introducing Mary Magdalen/Pimp, "Key & Peele" showcases their chemistry, camaraderie and unique point of view, born from their shared background and experiences growing up biracial in a not quite post-racial world.

"Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution" (Season Two Premiere)

Thursday, October 4 at 10:00 p.m.

It's time for another revolution! Gabriel Iglesias is back at it and taking over the Ft.
