New York, NY (August 20, 2012) - Fuse, the national music television network of The Madison Square Garden Company, announced that Off Beat, a new, original half-hour comedy program featuring some of today's funniest music-themed viral videos, will premiere on Friday, September 14th at 10:00pm EST. Hosted by comedian Mike E.
