The Onion News Network Is Coming to IFC


The Onion News Network, consistent producer of excellent fake news videos online, has announced a deal with IFC to air a new half-hour version beginning in 2011. Lest anyone question whether ONN can bring their high-quality humor to the TV screen, remember before the ONN launched and nobody thought it could be that great, and then it basically raised the bar so high nobody else has yet approached it? They're probably going to do that at IFC, too. With this new comedy slant, it kind of sounds like IFC is positioning itself as a more highbrow Comedy Central. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
