NEW YORK, December 9, 2014 - Grab a blanket and a cuddle buddy and get ready for the #1 brand in comedy's winter schedule! The new year brings all-new seasons of "Workaholics" and "Broad City," the third and final season of "Kroll Show" and new series including "The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore," Comedy Central's next great late night franchise; "This Is Not Happening," featuring stand-up comedians sharing true-life stories in front of a live audience and "Big Time in Hollywood, FL," starring two delusional brothers and self-proclaimed filmmakers who embark on a larger-than-life cinematic journey.

Original Series (all times ET/PT)

Tuesday, January 13

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

"Kroll Show" comes full circle as we learn the fate of all of the infamous characters portrayed in the series. Coming up this season "Bobby Bottleservice" plays an elaborate game with his fellow gigolos to determine who will be kicked out of the house; "Gil" and "George" pull a "Too Much Tuna" prank on their favorite doctor; "Liz" leaves town to grow out her bangs and join a team of gold miners in the mountains; "Mikey" gets addicted to pills and explores his sexuality on Wheels Ontario; the "Rich Dicks" open a restaurant; and "Dr. Armond" pursues his wife's killer in Europe. Joining Kroll for the finale season are a roster of well-known actors and comedians including Aziz Ansari, Paget Brewster, Bo Burnham, Bill Burr, John Mulaney, Adam Pally, Amy Poehler, Seth Rogen, and Casey Wilson.

Wednesday, January 14

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

Adam, Blake and Ders clock back in for a fifth season of "Workaholics." From the minds of the hilarious and irreverent Internet sketch group Mail Order Comedy, "Workaholics" is a single-camera comedy featuring 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. Dress codes, deadlines and waking up before noon are not things these guys are used to. 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. This season the guys, along with officemates "Jillian" (Jillian Bell) "Alice" (Maribeth Monroe) and "Montez" (Erik Griffin), and their friend "Karl" (Kyle Newacheck), organize an office ditch day, start a front yard wrestling league and recruit new employees at a college job fair, among other hijinks.

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

"Broad City" is coming back with a new season of ten episodes that will see Abbi and Ilana dealing with a slew of everyday challenges and adventures as they live their lives in New York City, including: Abbi's Bed, Bath And Beyond obsession; technology overload; a special romance; Ilana's family; and holding down their jobs at Soulstice and Deals, Deals, Deals. Joining Jacobson and Glazer as series regulars are Hannibal Buress, Arturo Castro, Paul Downs, John Gemberling, Chris Gethard and Stephen Schneider. Season Two guest stars include Bob Balaban, Aidy Bryant, Patricia Clarkson, Susie Essman, Janeane Garolfalo, Kumail Nanjiani, Kelly Ripa, Seth Rogen, Amy Ryan, Alia Shawkat and David Wain.

Monday, January 19

"The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore" (Series Premiere) - 11:30 p.m.

Created by Jon Stewart and produced by Stewart's Busboy Productions with Stewart, Larry Wilmore and Rory Albanese serving as Executive Producers, "The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore" continues Comedy Central's grand tradition of producing groundbreaking late night formats and will provide viewers with Wilmore's distinct point of view and comedic take on current events and pop culture. Hosted by Wilmore, the series will feature a diverse panel of voices, providing a perspective largely missing in the late night television landscape.

Thursday, January 22

"This Is Not Happening" (Series Premiere) - 12:30 a.m.

"This Is Not Happening," hosted by Ari Shaffir and based on his long-running live show, features Shaffir and his comedian friends telling hilarious and true stories in front of a live audience at LA's most distinguished gentlemen's club, Cheetahs. Throughout the season, comedians including Rob Corddry, D.L. Hughley, Keegan-Michael Key, Marc Maron, Steve Rannazzisi, Joe Rogan and Paul Scheer will tell their favorite, most embarrassing, or just plain funniest true-life tales around topics including Drugs, Emergencies, Wonder Years, Battles, Sexy Time, and Travel. "This Is Not Happening" was originally developed by CC:Studios, Comedy Central's in-house creative initiative for the development of original digital comedy. Executive produced by Ari Shaffir, Eric Abrams, Sam Saifer, and Jeff Tomsic, who also directed.

Wednesday, March 25
