This scripted anthology comedy series presents morality tales from the darkly witty mind of creator and four-time Sundance Award-winning writer/director Bobcat Goldthwait. Each standalone episode mashes up wildly different genres -- from 1970s-era science fiction and psychological thriller to romantic comedy and reality -- to tell a socially relevant story with an imaginative twist, and each tale parodies pop culture norms and exploits the awkwardness of its flawed characters. Or, in the words of Goldthwait, " `Misfits & Monsters' examines accepted truths and hypocrisies of our culture and turns them inside out."

From the minds of Adult Swim veterans Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, this anthology's tales might best be described as horrifying, insane or -- at least -- dark. The 15-minute episodes feature various guest stars. While its gallows humor is distinctly Tim and Eric, the presentation quality probably won't jibe with what their fans are used to; the guys' longest-running show, "Tim and Eric's Awesome Show, Great Job," had a low-quality, public-access feel to it, whereas "Bedtime Stories" has high production values.
Actress/comic Amy Sedaris opens her "home" to viewers in this comedy series. Rolling out the welcome mat means Amy must use her varied -- but necessary -- homemaking skills, from creating popsicle stick buddies and gutting a fish to crocheting miniature sweaters and entertaining businessmen. Each episode revolves around traditional themes like grieving, poverty, lovemaking, and wood, and Sedaris is front and center as she showcases her imaginative characters and unique viewpoint. Playing themselves, guest stars include Rachel Dratch, Chris Elliott, Jane Krakowski, Stephen Colbert and Heather Lawless.
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."
"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.

Hip-hop record producer Irv "Gotti" Lorenzo redefines the music genre in a completely new way for television. "Tales," described by BET as a scripted anthology series of "song stories," uses lyrics of hip-hop songs and reimagines them into mini-movies, each featuring a unique director, screenwriter and cast.
"Saturday Night Live" compatriots Fred Armisen, Bill Hader and Seth Meyers serve as creators, executive producers and writers of this IFC original series, using their love of documentary films and combining it with comedy to present a unique take on the form. Hosted by Dame Helen Mirren and starring Armisen and Hader, each episode is shot in a different documentary film style, paying tribute to some of the most important stories that didn't actually happen. "SNL" creator Lorne Michaels also executive produces "Documentary Now!", and guest stars include Jack Black and John Slattery.
Actor Seth Green ("Family Guy") and Matthew Senreich created the off-the-wall comedy hit, which is a series of pop-culture parodies using stop-motion animation of toys, action figures and dolls. The title character was an ordinary chicken until he was run down by a car and subsequently brought back to life in cyborg form by mad scientist Fritz Huhnmorder, who tortures Robot Chicken by forcing him to watch a random selection of TV shows, the sketches that make up the body of each episode. The show often features special episodes built around a single theme, including "Star Wars" and DC Comics.
Actor/comic Jon Glaser ("Parks and Recreation," "Girls") has an unmatched passion for gear. He loves it so much that it's the main focus of this hybrid comedy series that stars Glaser as himself. He is seen shopping for various gadgets, which he then wears, promotes, demonstrates and generally obsesses over. Ironically, however, it is this ever-growing infatuation that continually threatens to derail the show.
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.
