Yahoo!'s Fall Comedy Lineup will feature the following shows on September 9:
· Losing It with John Stamos (debut) - From Executive Producers Morgan Spurlock and John Stamos, Losing It with John Stamos takes a hilarious look back at celebrities' first times. With the help of some artistic re-imagining, viewers learn that the entertainers we know and love lived the same awkward, embarrassing years we all did. Featured guests include Michael Ian Black, Alan Cumming, Perez Hilton, Olivia Munn, Adam Pally, Michael Rapaport, Bob Saget, Matt Stone, Casey Wilson and more. (Produced by Warrior Poets) http://screen.yahoo.com/losing-it-with-john-stamos
· Tiny Commando (debut) - Created by Ed Helms and Jacob Fleisher and directed by Ryan McFaul (NTSF:SD:SUV), Tiny Commando is an action-packed comedy starring Zachary Levi as a 4-inch tall former Navy SEAL tragically shrunk in a military experiment. With his sidekick Mitzi (Gillian Jacobs), Tiny uses his fleet of awesome mini vehicles to fight crime and battle his mortal enemy, Cesar Pequeño (Helms). (Produced by Principato-Young Entertainment) http://screen.yahoo.com/tiny-commando/
· We Need Help (debut) - Cheryl Hines' and Rachael Harris' We Need Help may take place in the world of the rich and semi-famous, but centers around a situation common to almost everyone: a terrible job. Max is a struggling actor and needs work (and just one good showbiz connection wouldn't hurt either). He's agreed to take the job of being a personal assistant to actresses and friends Cheryl Hines and Rachael Harris (playing - kind of - themselves in the vein of Curb Your Enthusiasm). Needing the money to take classes, eat, and pay the rent, he's willing to do things no 23-year-old man would ever do and keep his integrity intact. (Produced by Vuguru and Principato-Young Entertainment) http://screen.yahoo.com/we-need-help/
· Ghost Ghirls (debut) - Ghost Ghirls is a web comedy series following the antics of two best friends, Heidi (Amanda Lund) and Angelica (Maria Blasucci), who work as paranormal investigators. Each episode details the bumbling adventures of the hilarious duo as they attempt to solve other worldly cases while not tripping over themselves in the process. The show was created by Drunk History's Jeremy Konner, along with stars Lund and Blasucci. The 12-episode paranormal procedural was directed by Konner and co-produced by Jack Black's Electric Dynamite and Shine America. http://screen.yahoo.com/ghost-ghirls/
· The Fuzz (debut) - The Fuzz is a scripted buddy-cop comedy set in a world where humans live alongside their puppet counterparts and puppet crime runs rampant. This story is about a puppet cop and his lazy human partner fighting against the odds to battle the violent drug war that's engulfing his city. (Produced by Vuguru and 3 Arts Entertainment). http://screen.yahoo.com/the-fuzz/ (trailer available)
· SketchY! (season 3) - The video series that brought viral sensations such as We're Not Young, Downton Arby's and Yogurt Birth Control, returns! Each week features a totally different sketch from some of the funniest comedians in the business. (Produced by Principato-Young Entertainment) http://screen.yahoo.com/sketchy/ (trailer available)
· The Flip Side (season 2) - The Flip Side is a youthful comedic series of observational shorts that "flips" social norms in hilarious ways. What if it was women who hit on the men in the bar? Or if it was the kids who made the rules for the parents? The Flip Side tackles a new topic in each episode, and shows how funny the world would be if our roles were flipped. (Produced by Altermotion Media) http://screen.yahoo.com/flip-side/ (trailer available)
· Sports Friends (season 2) - Sports Friends is a comedic animated series that parodies hilarious conversations between professional athletes. Written and performed with a unique comedic voice akin to a young Seth MacFarlane, Sports Friends humanizes iconic athletes as they discuss pedestrian topics like how cool it would be to win a championship title, or how much they love hitting home runs.(Produced by Mutsack) http://screen.yahoo.com/sports-friends/
· The entire 38-season archive of Saturday Night Live clips exclusively, along with clips from the upcoming season.
