Hosted by comedian Neal Brennan (co-creator of Chappelle’s Show), Sundance’s The Approval Matrix talk show will roll out the first of its six episodes on August 11 at 11 p.m. Based on New York’s famous back page matrix — which measures cultural events on a scale from highbrow to lowbrow and brilliant to despicable, and is generally the first thing each of you looks at when you read the magazine — The Approval Matrix will feature interviews (with celebrities including Amy Poehler, Chris Rock, and Jon Stewart), sketches, and segments in which panelists discuss the pop culture of the day. But which panelists are going to be on The Approval Matrix, you ask?
- Vulture’s Julie Klausner
- Broad City’s Hannibal Buress
- Two Broke Girls’ Whitney Cummings
- The Today show’s Willie Geist
- Chappelle’s Show’s Donnell Rawlings
- The Opie and Anthony Show’s Jim Norton
- 30 Rock’s Judah Friedlander
- Orange Is the New Black’s Jason Biggs
- Comedian Rob Delaney

Tune in. It’ll be brilliant.
