Bluth Banana Stand at Yankee Stadium Today | New Season 4 Arrested Development Trailer

Bluth Banana Stand and the cast of Arrested Development
Bluth Banana

There’s always money in the banana stand.” – George Bluth

The Bluth Frozen Banana stand*, long time fixture of the Bluth Company, will be at Yankee Stadium today from 3:30 – 8PM. Stop by before the game for a photo and a frozen banana. In conjunction with the banana stand, the Yankees are running a half price ticket offer for tonight’s matchup against the Mariners (May 15).

* The Bluth company has also owned and run a frozen banana stand started by George in 1953 on the Newport Beach boardwalk on Balboa Island. The stand was a popular meeting place for the buying and selling of marijuana in the 1970s. As the stand itself was built to resemble a large yellow banana, it was commonly known as “the big yellow joint”, and became the topic of a hit song by the same name. [arresteddevelopment.wikia.com]

The banana stand, is of course, an ingenious promotion for the highly anticipated premiere of Season 4 of Arrested Development on May 26 on Netflix.

Nikki & Sara Live Premieres Tonight on MTV

Nikki & Sara Live (Tuesdays @ 11 on MTV)
Nikki & Sara Live

The new show from comedians, Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer, Nikki & Sara Live, premieres tonight at 11PM ET on MTV. I know it’s a talk show, and I know it’s live (like Andy Cohen live I believe), and Ke$ha is the first guest, but other than that, I’ll be tuning in to find out more just like you. Huge congrats again to Sara & Nikki on the premiere, break a leg guys!

PS Back in the day, when I used to hang out at Union Hall at way too much, Sara once told me that her goal was to get her own talk show. I always remembered that, so it’s pretty awesome that this show is actually happening.

Good news comedy fans, if you’re handy with a computer, you can watch a sneak preview of Nick Kroll‘s eponymous Kroll Show right now. The full first episode is currently available for stream/download via comedycentral.com, hulu, itunes, amazon instant and xbox live. Based on the uninspired commercials, I had a few doubts about Nick’s new show, but I just watched episode 1 and it’s actually pretty hilarious. The Degrassi inspired “Wheels Ontario” was far and away my favourite skit of the episode. (The “pasta” line was so regional and classic, they must have ex-pats on the staff.)

New TV Preview: Winter – Spring 2013

The Americans
The Americans

Well, it’s a new year and that can only mean one thing, it’s time for me to sit back on my ass and watch some new shows. Here’s a look at some of what I’m most looking forward to watching, recording, renting and/or streaming in the upcoming Winter – Spring 2013 TV season. In terms of new shows, I’m really keen to see what FX’s The Americans looks like, IFC’s Out There could also be right up my alley, and while I haven’t been that bowled over by the promos, I’m also interested in checking out FX’s Legit. (Last but not least, though it may seem a little out of my wheelhouse, I’m also pretty excited for Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer‘s new show, Nikki & Sara LIVE.)
