Around the Tubes: 7/7/2017

I have gotten a plethora of cool press releases have been flooding my inbox recently that you may find interesting. This post will include blurbs on Episodes, BattleBots, Tiffany Haddish: She Ready! From the Hood to Hollywood!, and Divided.

- Showtime has released the official trailer for the fifth and final season of its acclaimed comedy series Episodes, which will premiere on Sunday, August 20 at 10:00. Episodes stars Matt LeBlanc in his four-time Emmy®-nominated and Golden Globe®-winning role playing a fictionalized version of himself.

- Let the robot shrapnel fly. Science Channel has licensed the off-network cable rights to air 16 episodes of ABC’s epic robot-fighting series BattleBots. BattleBots features the biggest, baddest, strongest, and fastest next-generation robots as they duke it out to become champions of an intense, fast-paced single elimination tournament. BattleBots premieres Wednesday, July 12 at 10pm ET/PT on Science Channel.

- Rising comedy star Tiffany Haddish takes the stage in her first stand-up special, Tiffany Haddish: She Ready! From the Hood to Hollywood! premiering on Friday, August 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME. In this hour-long special filmed at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center, the Los Angeles native tackles subjects ranging from her early days in foster care and being bullied on the playground to getting revenge on ex-boyfriends and introducing Will and Jada Pinkett Smith to Groupon. With her bold and unique style of comedy and refreshingly positive outlook on life, Haddish proves SHE READY for the spotlight!

- GSN’s hit series, Divided, will return for a second season, beginning Tuesday, August 15, with back-to-back episodes at 10:00 and 10:30. The show, which debuted in January 2017, was watched by nearly 11 million viewers during its initial 40-episode run. Part game show, part social experiment, the series, created by John de Mol (“The Voice”) and hosted by Mike Richards (Executive Producer of "The Price Is Right") features four strangers who must agree not only on their answers, but how their prize money should be split.
