IFC Solidifies Hold on Cult-Comedy Reruns

Already airing on IFC: Undeclared, Freaks and Geeks, Arrested Development, Monty Python. Now set to begin airing on IFC: The Larry Sanders Show, The Ben Stiller Show, Mr. Show, Action (Vulture does not really recall that last one, either; apparently it starred Jay Mohr as a movie producer). It's all part of IFC's master plan to corner the market on "irreverent, slightly off comedies," says IFC's Jen Caserta, that complement the channel's original programming (The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret; the upcoming Portlandia, from Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein; The Onion News Network). Comedy nerds: You have a new default TV channel. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
