"@midnight" (Season Premiere) - Monday-Thursday at midnight

The social media sensation, hosted by Chris Hardwick and produced by Funny Or Die, returns for a full-season run! Comedy Central's newest late-night hit leads viewers down the ultimate internet wormhole with a rotating lineup of today's top comedians battling nightly to determine who has the funniest take on the day's social media and pop culture happenings and win the Internet. Using social media as the catalyst and a fake game show as the setting, "@midnight" challenges comedians to prove who's the funniest by slashing the craziest, most absurd news and posts that social media has to offer: from celebrity Twitter tantrums to the most bizarre Yahoo Answers to Rich Kids on Instagram.

"Kroll Show" (Season Two Premiere) - 10:30 p.m.

Nick Kroll and his many characters return for a second season of "Kroll Show," a sketch-uational comedy highlighting Kroll's smart and absurd take on of-the-moment pop culture topics like internet life, professional sports, nightclub culture and the television landscape. Reoccurring sketches and characters include Kroll and Jenny Slate as the "PubLIZity" girls; "Bobby Bottleservice" (Kroll) and his sidekick "Peter Paparazzo" (Jon Daly); the "Rich Dicks"; "Dr. Armond," the premier canine plastic surgeon; George (John Mulaney) and Gil's (Kroll) prank show "Too Much Tuna;" and the best ref in the game, "Ref Jeff."

Wednesday, January 22

"Workaholics" (Season Four Premiere) - 10:00 p.m.

It's time to get weird as Adam, Blake and Ders return to the office for the fourth season of their smash hit "Workaholics." The single-camera scripted comedy features three friends, played by series creators Blake Anderson, Adam Devine and Anders Holm, who work together from 9 to 5, live together from 5 to 9 and party together 24/7. They do their jobs and sometimes they even do them well, but they show up late, leave drunk and always live for the day... even if they don't know what day it is. Whether they're partying at their house in Rancho Cucamonga, just trying to get through the day with coworkers "Jillian" (Jillian Bell) and "Alice" (Maribeth Monroe) or making "deals" with their friend "Karl" (Kyle Newacheck), the guys always seem to run into trouble wherever they go.

"Broad City" (Series Premiere) - 10:30 p.m.

Courtesy of the collective brains of and starring Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, "Broad City" is an odd couple comedy about two best friends navigating their twenties in New York City whose adventures always lead down unexpected and outlandish paths. They're broke, flawed and don't shy away from the sticky situations NYC throws at them -- they dive right into the muck. But no matter how bad it gets, these young broads are always down with whatever hits them.

Tuesday, February 18

"Tosh.0" (Season Six Premiere) - 10:00 p.m.

The infinite world of the internet is a comedic playing field for host Daniel Tosh as he explores the online exploits from around the world. Tune in this February for the sixth season of "Tosh.0" to find out what fresh look he will reveal to the masses and the new participants of the "Web Redemptions."

Thursday, February 27

"Review" (Series Premiere) - 10:00 p.m.

"Review" is a half-hour comedy starring Andy Daly ("Eastbound and Down") as Forrest MacNeil and directed by the Oscar-nominated, Emmy-winning Jeffrey Blitz ("Spellbound," "The Office"). Unlike typical critics who review boring things like films, food or art, Forrest reviews the most intense experiences of life itself... by living them. He reviews anything his TV audience throws at him: the adrenaline rush of stealing, the dangers of drug addiction, the joys of sleeping with a celebrity and many more. Forrest is fully committed to showing us what life experiences feel like and, for our convenience, he rates every adventure on a scale of zero to five stars. MacNeil's unwavering commitment to his work means his answers to life's most challenging questions often come at the expense of his family and humanity in general. Daly heads up an impressive cast which features Jessica St. Clair ("Bridesmaids") as his wife Suzanne, Fred Willard (everything funny ever) as his father-in-law Jack and James Urbaniak ("Crumb") as his producer Grant. Guest stars include Andy Richter, Ashley Tisdale, Jason Mantzoukas, Rich Fulcher, Emo Phillips, Andy Blitz and Maria Thayer.

Tuesday, April 1

"Inside Amy Schumer" (Season Two Premiere) - 10:30 p.m.

After having one of Comedy Central's highest rated debuts, the critically acclaimed hit comedy show "Inside Amy Schumer" is back for a second season. Featuring scripted vignettes, stand-up comedy, and man-on-the-street interviews, Schumer explores topics revolving around sex, relationships, and the general clusterf*ck that is life. The upcoming second season will include a stellar line-up of guest appearances including: Paul Giamatti, Parker Posey, Zach Braff, Josh Charles, Janeane Garofalo, Chrissy Teigen, Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Artie Lange, Kathy Najimy, Missi Pyle, Patrick Warburton, Colin Quinn, Michael Ian Black, Abby Elliott, Reggie Watts, Natasha Leggero, Jon Glaser, Mike Birbiglia, Deborah Rush, Scott Adsit and Todd Barry.

Wednesday, April 2

"TripTank" (Series Premiere) - 10:30 p.m.
