Each week, Torontoist examines the upcoming TV listings and makes note of programs that are entertaining, informative, and of quality. Or, alternately, none of those. The result: Televisualist. “I know this seems hard to believe, given that you’re locked in an insane asylum, but they cast Naveen Andrews to appear later in the season as Jafar.” Monday AMC begins the next The Walking Dead marathon (which will go on all damn week) because now that Breaking Bad is over and Mad Men isn’t coming back for another year, it’s either overhyping their only other major hit or trying to get people to watch Low Winter Sun. And that latter fish, she ain’t biting. (8 p.m.) Tuesday Oh, look, The Rick Mercer Report and This Hour Has 22 Minutes are back for their new seasons, presumably because news has started happening again! What’s that? The Daily Show managed to go for three months without having Jon Stewart handy? It’s almost as if it has some sort of commitment to doing a regular and relatively timely comedy news show! (CBC, 8 p.m.) The CBC also has the premiere of Crossing Lines, for all those of you who didn’t watch it back in June when it premiered on NBC. If you really want to watch it, that is. It was renewed for a second season by the TF1 network in France, so we guess it has that going for it. (9 p.m.) Wednesday Returning for its second season for reasons we don’t quite understand: Arrow, which is seemingly proof that no matter how stupid your superhero TV show is, people will still watch it. New this season: Summer Glau as the new baddie! Hooray! She was in that other thing you liked! (CTV, 8 p.m.) Debuting on Bravo roughly a year after its cancellation is Boss, Kelsey Grammer’s drama about a tough-as-nails Chicago mayor trying to conceal his early-onset dementia. There are only two seasons and eighteen episodes of the show, so it’s not a major commitment. It’s worth checking out if only for Grammer’s ridiculously good performance in the lead. The rest of the show is hit and miss (and, frankly, trends downwards as it goes on), but Grammer is just great in this, which is why he won a Golden Globe for acting in it. (10 p.m.) Big Tips Texas is MTV’s new reality show about waitresses working at a honky-tonk bar in Texas. If it’s successful, expect to see Big Tips New York and Big Tips Miami—and probably Big Tips Wyoming for all we know. (MTV Canada, 10 p.m.) Thursday Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is a spinoff of Once Upon a Time, which you probably forgot about but apparently a whole lot of people still watch (it’s like the C.S.I. of fantasy TV in a lot of ways). This show is, of course, about Alice from Alice In Wonderland, except it’s much more of a straight-up adventure show than the mystery/drama saga that its parent show was conceived as. There will be sword fights and romance and lots of gritty re-envisionings of Lewis Carroll’s books (the Red Queen wears an evil lingerie dress!), and it doesn’t look that bad, but then again Televisualist is seemingly the only one who liked Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland movie unironically, so maybe take our opinion with a grain of salt. (City, 8 p.m.) The Simpsons rerun of the week: “The Cartridge Family,” wherein Homer joins the NRA. “Seven days? But I’m angry now!” (MuchMusic, 8 p.m.) Friday Chocolate Sundaes: Live On The Sunset Strip is BET’s latest stand-up comedy offering, and features sets performed at the legendary Laugh Factory in Hollywood during its weekly “Chocolate Sundaes” black comedy night. The first episode offers up Kevin Hart, Katt Williams, and Aries Spears, and that should be enough reason to tune in right there. (10 p.m.) The Weekend So now that you’ve spent all week watching all those old, flawed episodes of The Walking Dead, you can watch the fourth-season premiere, which will also likel

*The 2014 Fantastic Voyage will take place March 16-24th with George Clinton joining forces with the “Tom Joyner Morning Show” crew to keep the funk alive. Multicolored hair may be a thing of the past for Clinton, but he is still ready to break everyone on board off a piece of the funk and will bring Ice Cube and Katt Williams (just to name a few) along for the ride. “You know it ‘s going to be a party,” Clinton told the TJMS folks. “You know it’s going to be one nation under a groove.” The funkster also revealed that he will be starring in his own reality show due out this year called “The Clintons.” “I’m doing a reality show with my family, with my son Tracy, my six grandkids, Scott Thompson, Brandi – it’s a big family thing,” he told Uncut magazine earlier this year. “A bit like ‘The Osbournes’ but most of them are, like, musicians, rappers and everything. We got to come up with new ways to get the music across, so we’re doing this reality show. So we can expose all the noses out there, stealing the copyrights and taking people’s music and money. This is all gonna be part of the reality show, the copyright fight, plus we still kicking ass.” Clinton, 72, had to sell off four songs from his music catalog to pay off lawyers, and over the years, has fought over sampling from Parliament/Funkadelic music that he wasn’t compensated for. Switching things up, Clinton and TJMS gang got into a discussion about younger artists who get into trouble because they don’t know how to control their impulses. “It was never trouble, it was always fun,” Clinton says of his life. [Younger artists] look at it wrong. You can’t look at it like that. Everything ain’t fun. You can’t be knee deep into it,” he laughs. “Just dabble and go on home. You know when you pull up and try to make residence there, then it ain’t no fun. You should always be just a little bit behind happy. You should never catch it. That’s why they call it the pursuit of happiness.” For MORE info on the 2014 Fantastic Voyage, head over to the Tom Joyner Foundation.

*On-again-off-again sober minded comedian Katt Williams says despite his outbursts and breakdowns, he’s still the king of comedy. Bursting out onto the stage over a decade ago, the pint-sized funnyman was hailed as something like a baby genius. But like every smart person, he has his quirks. After disappearing and allegedly going straight-jacket crazy, a few years back, he managed to recover somewhat. But by the end of 2012, he had already been arrested a few times too many for fighting, carrying stolen firearms and other charges. But through it all, he’s managed to keep it together enough to get through an interview with the Grio, saying tragedy and comedy go hand-in-hand. “It’s impossible to separate those two things,” Williams says. “Those two things are on opposite sides of a coin, and so is genius and crazy. So if they ever in life call you one, they are in essence handing you a coin that has a flip side on it. I ignored it as long as I could.” Katt was an amazing ‘leprechaun’ looking pimp in 2002 film “Friday After Next” but totally took off in 2006 with his stand-up show, “The Pimp Chronicles Pt. 1.” Everything was on the up and up until he pulled out of hosting the BET Awards in 2008 last minute. It’s been rocky over the years in both career and personal life, including repeated legal issues. He says, however, there’s no excuse for that. “It’s really hard for you to have growth without change,” he explains. “What you’re doing is you’re attempting to change the bad things about you into better things, without changing who you are as a person. And so I’m doing about as well as can be hoped. Comme ci, comme ça. I made a lot more mistakes than I would like, and so what I’m finding is that to err is human. I’m done erring, now I’m onto joking.”

Cloudy 2, a deliciously delightful treat from Sony Pictures, in theaters September 27, 2013 Sony Pictures Animation presents Cloudy with a Chance of Meatball 2 in 3D. *“We’re really happy to be back with these characters,” said Kris Pearn director of the Rated PG Sony Pictures Animation presentation of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatball 2, in 3D, starring the voices of Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Benjamin Bratt, Andy Samberg and Terry Crews. “Took three years…I was on the story for 4 ½ years.” “There was a year of development,” Cody Cameron added. Cody shares directorial duties with Kris. “We storyboard on this one. The characters are the most important…I hope people are entertained… laugh.” “What’s so neat about the directors …they are really in touch with their inner child,” said Benjamin Bratt (“Law & Order”) who voices the cameraman Manny. “The challenge (of voice over) is that the performance is different…it’s a totally different process. On this it’s just you and the director.” The theater was full of laughing faces as foods of all kinds come to life in Cloudy 2, due to an invention of Flint Lockwood (Hader) the guy with the big ideas and big inventions. He enlist the help of Sam Sparks (Faris) the weather girl; reluctantly enlist his father Tim (James Caan); Brent (Andy Samberg), a chicken suit wearing foam board arrow worker friend; Earl Devereaux (Crews) a former police now a coffee house worker, and his best friend Steve the Monkey (Neil Patrick Harris) to help him find and destroy his invention to stop the living food creations from taking over the world. “It was hard. I was taking over for the iconic Mr. T,” said Terry Crews about replacing Mr. T as the voice of Earl. “Oh man, how do you do that? But they said, ‘No we want Terry Crews. The best you can be.’” He did an excellent job because I walked away remembering the lines of his character and the Monkey. It is certainly worth taking the whole family to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2; it will surely be a time of much laughter. Kristan Schall and Will Forte are also voices in Cloudy 2.

Talbert Fox Searchlight presentation Baggage Claim in theatres September 27, 2013. *Film creator David E. Talbert does it again with the release of his second feature film Baggage Claim, a hilarious self-discovery film starring Paula Patton, Derek Luke, Jill Scott, Adam Brody, Jenifer Lewis, Boris Kodjoe, Trey Songz, Taye Diggs, Djimon Hounsou, LaLa Anthony and Tia Mowry. Baggage Claim is a Fox Searchlight Pictures presentation Rated PG and arriving in theaters September 27, 2013. Baggage Claim is based on Talbert’s novel of the same name and is directed, produced and written by him – a native of my home town of Baltimore so I guess its fitting the backdrop of the film is in Baltimore.  Steven J. Wolfe is co-producer. The romantic comedy has Montana “Mo” Moore (Patton); looking for a man she can marry in time to announce it at her youngest sister’s wedding engagement party. She has 30 days and 30,000 air miles she can use to make it happen. “I added four characters…TSA workers,” David E. Talbert said about the large cast of popular actors. “It’s more fun working with people I’m a fan of. I’m a fan of everybody.” “For me this is a huge elevation as a film maker. This is my signature movie,” Talbert sincerely pointed out. “It has the most heart and soul in it. You have to let it live. The novel had its magic, the screenplay had its magic and the movie…had to let it have its magic. I step back and let the novel and screenplay is the spring-board. David’s first feature film was First Sunday in 2008 which starred Ice Cube, Tracy Morgan and Katt Williams. He has won 24 Image Awards, one for “Best Playwright,” for his 13 legendary stage-plays.

Netflix is a revolving door of movie and television content, particularly on the streaming side of things. Though titles often disappear from availability, new ones are also frequently added. Sometimes these come in the form of Netflix original shows or even exclusive access to certain programming, but sometimes it’s just older titles that many find to be still worth watching. Content is added to Netflix streaming each week, and it can be difficult to keep up with what’s available all the time. With that, here’s a look at some new additions. Note: This is for the U.S. Over the past week, we’ve seen Netflix add a bunch of Disney content, documentaries, television content, movies and stand-up comedy. On Thursday, Derek, the newest Netflix Original debuted. Now, a bunch more stuff is coming. Here are some things you can expect over the coming week. Available 9/14: Whisker Wars: Season 2 (Season 1 currently avail) Bearding is a sport of growing, grooming and presenting facial hair.

Available 9/15: Katt Williams: Kattpacalypse Urban comic Katt Williams ushers in Kattpacalypse, exploding with more energy than an atomic bomb and riffing on everything from Doomsday to Obama. The high-octane set was filmed live on New Year’s Eve I Killed My Mother (2009) Anne Dorval, Xavier Dolan, François Arnaud, Suzanne Clement, Patricia Tulasne, Niels Schneider, Monique Spaziani, Pierre Chagnon This semiautobiographical drama chronicles the caustic relationship between gay teenager Hubert and his overburdened mother Chantale, who grapple with the notion that although they can’t seem to live together, they’re not sure they can live apart. If I Were You (2012) Marcia Gay Harden, Leonor Watling, Aidan Quinn, Joseph Kell, Valerie Mahaffey, Gary Piquer, Michael Therriault In a bungled plot to pay back her husband’s infidelity, a jilted wife finds herself forced to star as King Lear in a spectacularly terrible production, with her husband’s younger lover playing the role of the king’s fool. Sushi: The Global Catch (2012) Tracing the history of sushi from its origins as Japanese street food to its current status as a worldwide menu staple, this documentary examines the cultural traditions of sushi and the costs of its popularity. The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu (2010) Track the rise and fall of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu through this innovative historical documentary, which constructs his portrait by only using archival footage from speeches, pubic appearances, international visits and home movies. Culling more than 1,000 hours of recordings, director Andrei Ujica spent four years creating this detailed epic, which strives to reveal the powerful leader’s true character. 23:59 (2011) Tedd Chan, Stella Chung, Henley Hii, Lawrence Koh, Tommy Kuan, Josh Lai, Mark Lee, Susan Leong, Benjamin Lim When an army recruit is found dead during a routine march at exactly 23:59, his fellow soldiers are forced to confront the terrifying secret that’s haunting their jungle island training camp. Spiral: Season 4 (Seasons 1-3 currently avail) This gritty crime drama set in the dark underbelly of Paris follows police captain Laure Berthaud, her two lieutenants, a judge, a prosecutor and a lawyer as they investigate and prosecute crimes. Bob Saget: That’s What I’m Talkin’ About In “That’s What I’m Talking About,” Bob Saget takes to the stage with a song in his heart. A filthy, filthy song to be exact. He lets loose and embraces the dark side, and you’ll thank him for it. He tells his favorite dirty jokes, and tells stories of his dad, the guy who made him like this. He also pulls out a guitar for some songs that they probably won’t be playing on “Full House,” but will make you

via www.worldstarhiphop.com Here in some subsequent standup appearance, Dave Chappelle addresses the incident in Hartford, Connecticut, the other day, in which he was left with no choice but to retire from comedy because the crowd wouldn't shut the fuck up and let him tell his jokes. I guess this means his retirement is over? I'm reminded of the time when Katt Williams retired from comedy on eyewitness news, standing in the middle of the street somewhere in Seattle, after having been kicked out of a hotel.
