Cable network makes smart move, fans astounded. It's about time Comedy Central got their asses together again, though I'm sure it'll just make me cry to see the various UCBers back on The Channel Of Fun.

Props on the sig, Frosty.

I may be wrong, but what I had originally heard was that they were just planning on rerunning the most recent episode, kinda like what E! does with that godawful Carson Daly show. I could be, and hope I am, wrong.

ESPN, Comedy Central, Cartoon Network.

I would pay more for this hypothetical cable package than one with every other station on Earth. Maybe throw BBC In America in there so I can watch Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, Mr. Bean, and Black Adder reruns. Oh, and Father Ted. Musn't forget Father Ted.

BBC America used to be a lot better about running British comedies. Now they comedies are either astonishingly terrible stuff run in prime time while stuff like "Monty Python" is run at 4 AM. The rest of the time it's "Ground Force" and "Changing Rooms," two programs the world could happily do without.

They used to. They used to run two hour blocks of stuff like "Blackadder," "Python" and "Are You Being Served" along with some other shows I grew to like like "Chef!" and "All Along The Watchtower"

But now it's either dreary movies (in the "what is it Sebastian? I'm arranging matches!" vein) or "Changing Rooms" and friging "Ground Force" or, even worse, "When Changing Rooms Met Ground Force," which I felt disappointed in because it didn;t take place in a steel cage or end in mutual annihilation.

I believe it starts on Wednesday, Sept. 9th or something like that. There's commercials running for it now, so if you catch one you can tell us all. But, I'm pretty sure they said classic episodes of Conan. I am crossing my fingers though, because I really can't remember.

One of my favorite moments from the show was Conan singing "Dazed and confused" with Andy on guitar. That totally ruled.

Conan is the funniest guy on late night tv. It just sucks he's on so late that I can't watch him. But now thanks to Comedy Central, I can! Thank you Comedy Central! What you have done is a great thing. For me to poop on!

I love Triumph.

Personally, I'm patiently waiting for BBC America to start playing Red Dwarf again, but that's just me.

Conan on Comedy Central = :thumbsup:

A lot of times you can catch Red Dwarf, Are you Being Served, and a few other British comedies on PBS.

Ol Fuzzy Bastard is correct...what will Comedy Central will do is broadcast the night's before show. No reruns of the old stuff so far in Comedy Central part, although with E! taking over SNL 2001+ reruns I wouldn't be surprised if they do broadcast old Conan with Andy reruns. All i ask for is more Triumph...for me too poop on!

I would watch Red Dwarf on the local PBS station, but I've seen every episide but one (Marooned) and am merely waiting for its return to BBC America to use as an excuse for watching them all again and laughing uproariously.

    Does BBC America show "Are You Being Served?"



dude, WETA channel 26 here in maryland has Are you being served? That's where i first got exposed to it back in 1995.
Red Dwarf is my all time fav. show EVER...i'm still waiting for the Movie to be completed and in case you were wondering, the re-mixed shows are starting to grow on me...

Holy crap, you get Ground Force in the US?! I believe that may be punishment for inflicting Ally McBeal on the rest of the free world.

You know, I kinda figured that some karmic repayment was going on since it's on 12 hours out of every 24.
