‘Review’ Final Season: What Time & Channel Is Andy Daly’s Show on?

The last season of Andy Daly’s absurd Comedy Central series Review debuts tonight. The series, which stars Daly as Forrest MacNeil, a reviewer of real-life experiences who has let these reviews flush his life down a drain of miserable misfortune, starts season three on Thursday, March 16 at 10:00 p.m. ET. Read on for a preview of the season premiere.

Although the show has very few viewers tuning in, Review has been a critical darling. The show began as just a series about a show within a show, wherein Forrest would review life experiences, no matter what they were. Things started innocently enough, with him reviewing experiences like being a racist, getting addicted, stealing, floating in space and what it’s like to be Batman.

But then in season two, which aired back in 2015, things got really messed up. He started testing cures for homosexuality, joining a cult, getting buried alive, being a conspiracy theorist and murder. He even got a divorce just so he could review that life experience. By the end of the season, his life was completely in shambles and he jumped into a river with producer Grant (James Urbaniak).

In the third season premiere, Forrest will try to review a Mexican restaurant’s new product, putting a pet to sleep and fulfilling a dream.

Critics seem to agree that it’s the best comedy no one is watching. According to the Hollywood Reporter, season one averaged 484,000 viewers. Season two averaged just 258,000 viewers.

Dave Chappelle Says Key & Peele Copied His Show

Dave Chappelle is back in the spotlight after a lengthy hiatus, and he’s got lots to say.

The legendary comedian, whose schedule to air two standup specials on March 21, sat down with CBS This Morning to discuss his legacy, his sketch series Chappelle’s Show (2003-06), and, in an unexpected turn, comedy duo Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. In the past, Chappelle criticized the duo for copying his show, joking about “watching Key and Peele do my show the last five (expletive) years.”

Chappelle clarified his comments, and his reasoning behind them. “No. I’m a fan of this show,” he asserts, before saying, “I fought the network very hard so that those conventions could come to fruition,” he said. “So, like the first episode I do, that black white supremacist sketch. And it’s like, ‘Well, that’s 10 minutes long. It should be five minutes long.’ Why should it be five minutes long? Like, these types of conventions. I fought very hard. So when I watch Key & Peele and I see they’re doing a format that I created, and at the end of the show, it says, ‘Created by Key & Peele,’ that hurts my feelings.”
