You can’t keep a good reviewer down. Life reviewer Forrest MacNeil is back for more adventures in the second season of “Review,” premiering Thursday, July 30th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central. For fans that want to relive the escapades of the first season, all of the episodes will be available to all users via cc.com and the Comedy Central App beginning July 13th through August 6 (no authentication required).
“Review,” starring Andy Daly, was a cult hit and a critical darling in its first season. According to HitFix, “no pure comedy was better — or more surprising.” The show was named to many year-end best lists, including those in TIME, The Hollywood Reporter, The Atlantic and The A.V. Club. Season two finds Forrest once again eschewing the boring subjects like film, food or art and heading straight for the tough subjects like joining the mile high club, living life according to the Magic 8 Ball, and even leading a cult. As always, he approaches these challenges with unwavering commitment, regardless of the personal consequences.
In the season premiere, guest starring Allison Tolman (“Fargo”), support from fans inspires Forrest to return, somewhat less than triumphantly, to “Review.” He introduces the Veto Booth, intended to keep things from getting out of control once again, before embarking on the latest reviews: having a bare knuckle brawl, blackmailing someone, and what it’s like to visit a Glory Hole.
Leading up to the season premiere and throughout the season, fans can visit cc.com/review for previews and highlights, check out the series’ Facebook page for more content and social interaction, and follow Daly on Twitter @TVsAndyDaly.
Episodes of “Review” will be available the day after air on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Xbox Video, Vudu, Verizon Flexview and Google Play, as well as in the Comedy Central App to fans that authenticate via their cable or satellite provider. The Comedy Central App is available for free for iOS on the App Store, for Android on the Google Play store, and on Chromecast and Xbox One.
New York-born, New Jersey-raised Daly has appeared in films such as “Semi-Pro,” “Yogi Bear,” “The Informant!” and “Transformers 3,” television shows like “Eastbound & Down,” “The Office,” “RENO 911!” and “MADtv,” and currently plays recurring roles on “Modern Family,” “Silicon Valley” and “Adventure Time.” Daly was one of the earliest students of The Upright Citizens Brigade in New York and has been improvising with them ever since. He now lives in Los Angeles with his wife, two daughters and a dog named Pierre.
“Review” is executive produced by Daly, Jeffrey Blitz (“The Office”), Andy Blitz (“Late Night with Conan O’Brien”) and Charlie Siskel (“Tosh.0”). The series is directed by Jeffrey Blitz. Gary Mann is the Executive in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
