Every Friday at 9:00 p.m., don't miss an all-new episode from the ninth season of "Premium Blend" featuring the best rising stand-up stars in the country and host Damon Wayans. Plus, beginning today, viewers can go online and vote for their favorite stand-up comedian as part of COMEDY CENTRAL's annual "Stand-Up Showdown Finals," a day-long count down of the top twenty-five viewer-selected comedians that lead up to the winning comedian's stand-up special Sunday, January 29 at 8:30 p.m.

COMEDY CENTRAL's Sunday Night Stand-Up specials kick off January 8 with "Christopher Titus: Norman Rockwell is Bleeding." In this special, Christopher Titus returns to his comedic roots and pokes fun at domestic issues such as raising kids and overbearing relatives.

Sunday Night Stand-Up continues with "John Leguizamo: Sexaholix?A Love Story," premiering January 22. The inimitable Leguizamo takes the Broadway stage, telling his audience all about the time his grandfather fell off the toilet, why his neighbor refused to leave her apartment and how Latin women are similar to blow-up dolls.
