Comedy Central Wants More Sarah Silverman and Demetri Martin

Funny People: Sarah Silverman and Demetri Martin are both returning to Comedy Central in February. The Sarah Silverman Program has been renewed for a third season and Important Things With Demetri Martin has been given a second season. Even if these two comics aren’t for you, we should all thank Comedy Central for showing some love to comics who don’t stick their arm up a doll’s butt. [TV Week]

USA! USA!: Patton Oswalt and Megan Mullally will star in the Broadway revival of Lips Together, Teeth Apart. Directed by Joe Mantello, the Terrence McNally play is about two couples who spend Fourth of July weekend on Fire Island and find out that even with all the revelers around them, they couldn’t feel more alone. Unlike our family’s Fourth celebrations though, this doesn’t devolve people shooting bottle rockets into their brother’s face. [NYT]

Copper Vision: A new reality show with the working title POV-PD will follow police officers as they chase down criminals, all done with a camera strapped to their head. The show is produced by Base Productions, the people behind such shows as Human Wrecking Balls and Fight Science. Now you’ll be able to see shirtless Floridians just like the fuzz see them. [THR]

Old Woman Rivers: After four years away from E!, Joan Rivers will return to the network next year to make fun of people for clothes their stylists picked out. She’ll host all of E!’s Fashion Police specials tied to major award ceremonies next year. Her first show will be on January 18, where she’ll make jokes about her fake Golden Globes. [THR]
