Finale week continues as Key & Peele caps off its second season within a year. I’ve been a fan of the duo since their days on Mad TV, a sketch show I wish Fox hadn’t canceled. That series, which introduced me to the likes of Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project), Josh Meyers (Seth’s brother, who is equally as funny), Bobby Lee, and Will Sasso amongst others. Sure, it never launched a star as big as some former SNLers but it was much more consistently funny then SNL and I would watch it during SNL slumps. It is because of Mad TV that Keegan Michael-Key and Jordan Peele became friends and it is because of that series that they’ve been able to become masters of sketch comedy.

This is a funny show. Much funnier then a lot of non-SNL sketch shows of the past and it has become more popular with each episode. The keynote sketch, from this show, that you’ve probably heard of is, the Obama/Luther Anger Translator sketch where President Obama supposedly has an anger translator, named Luther, whom he uses to vent for him. It is a great sketch. One of many from this show. And it’s one that has actually been watched, and commented on, by the President himself.

Definitely an underrated comedy show, though it’s not appointment television. It’s good enough, in my mind, too always have on your DVR and watch when you’ve got nothing else better to do on a slow day. The show deserves a third season and thankfully, just yesterday Comedy Central announced that it would be getting that third season.

Key & Peele airs on Comedy Central at 10:30 PM.

Tonight at 10pm over on Comedy Central is the season finale of Futurama‘s seventh season. I am still in disbelief that the show was not only renewed into a 7th season, but it will also be returning for an eight season! I haven’t been following ti regularly recently, but will catch up someday on DVD or reruns. I love the show, but its not one of the series that I feel the need to watch right when its on. Sorta like Scrubs, Cougar Town, or Happy endings.

Tonight at 10pm on Comedy Central we have the 100th episode of Futurama! After being canceled years ago I never thought we’d see this day,but I’m really glad that it is here. The episode is also the season finale, check out this preview for it…

In the episode, the gang gets their 100th delivery, but Fry accidentally reveals Leela’s origins as a mutant who has illegally been living above the surface. This causes a war between the mutants and surface people for mutant rights. Fry joins Leela and the mutants, which includes the band Devo. How will it end? You have to watch and see. Futurama stars the voices of Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio, Phil LaMarr, and Lauren Tom. Two reruns air before the new episode starting at 9pm on Comedy Central, make it a Futurama night!

What else is on tonight? Well, we have a bunch of reality shows with CBS’ Big Brother 12 (I can’t believe this show is still on) at 8pm, and Project Runway on Lifetime at 9pm. Spike has a new TNA Wrestling Impact! at 9pm, which looks Emmy worth compared to MTV’s Jersey Shore which airs at 10pm with an Aftershow special right after it. Why do people watch that crap? In terms of new primetime dramas our only option is ABC’s police drama Rookie Blue at 9pm… or we can just find something on Hulu, yeah that sounds like a good idea.

What will you be watching tonight?
