Comic Billy Eichner transitions his man-on-the-street-style interviews that first became popular via the Funny or Die website to TV, roaming the sidewalks of New York and asking pedestrians outrageous pop-culture trivia questions. A correct answer could win the passersby money, even if it's just $1. The real payoff for viewers comes in watching Eichner's frenzied irreverence -- an act he honed as a member of the comedy troupe the Upright Citizens Brigade -- clash with hardened New Yorkers, many of whom gleefully play along.

Comic Adam Conover, a cast member and writer at the popular comedy website CollegeHumor, brings his original online series to TV, expanding upon his efforts to poke fun at everyday things that people accept or assume without question.

This hidden-camera series follows four lifelong friends -- Brian "Q" Quinn, James "Murr" Murray, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano -- who take dares to an outrageous level. Since they were young, the quartet have challenged one another to do ridiculous dares in public. On the show, to find out who is best under pressure, the guys compete in awkward and outrageous hidden-camera hijinks. At the end of each episode, the loser must perform what is deemed to be the most-mortifying challenge yet.
TV personality Kevin Pereira ("Attack of the Show") and comic Brooke Van Poppelen explore the world of "life hacks": procedures or actions that solve problems, simplify tasks or reduce frustrations. From opening a wine bottle with a shoe, eliminating pet hair on fabric with a squeegee and flip-flop, or using a sock to make a toilet seat more comfortable, the successful hacks are designed to be fun, inexpensive time-savers. Those that don't live up to the hype are exposed, and undercover hacks challenge members of the public to overcome pitfalls.
Actress/comic Amy Sedaris opens her "home" to viewers in this comedy series.

"Friends of the People" is TruTV's first sketch-comedy series. It combines scripted elements with man-on-the-street features. The comics starring are Kevin Barnett, Jennifer Bartels, Jermaine Fowler, Lil Rel Howery, Josh Rabinowitz, and Kenny and Keith Lucas.
TruTV's first foray into full-length scripted comedy is this series created by and starring Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl and Ben Roy, members of the Denver-based comedy troupe The Grawlix. Playing high school teachers Loren Payton, Andy Fairbell and Billy Shoemaker, respectively, the three educators are about as dysfunctional as the students at Smoot High. Spanish teacher Loren is a self-proclaimed bon vivant; Andy teaches gym, health, and coaches girls volleyball, but his highly speculative sexual orientation is what really interests co-workers; and loud-mouthed, tattooed Billy's claim to fame is playing in a post-punk speed bludgeon band. Reluctant at first, new school librarian Abbey eventually joins in on the guys' antics.
Comics April Richardson and Chris Fairbanks host this half-hour series that applauds (wink, wink) how hard some people, places and things try to succeed despite ultimately failing. Actors, comedians and improvisation artists are digitally inserted into viral videos to comment on and congratulate people for being brave and ingenious in coming oh so close to victory. But, claims truTV, " `Almost Genius' doesn't mock, because as everyone knows, almost is awesome... and genius."
