January is kind of the worst, isn’t it? The holidays are over, the weather is going to get colder, desserts have been replaced with fad diets, and it’s dark at 4 p.m. Thankfully, there’s TV. What would we do without TV? Stare out the window at all the dark coldness, probably.
January is hella long (31 days feels excessive), but on MUCH that means 31 days for show premieres, returning favourites, and the beginning of the end of a beloved series. Fronds to the ond.
Check out the shows debuting this month that are making January less sucktastic.

Drunk History returns with new episodes starting Tuesday, January 15 and as usual the show is combining celebs, semi-accurate history lessons, and a lot of alcohol. Season 6 premieres with Are You Afraid of the Drunk?, which fittingly stars Canadian comedian Seth Rogen, along with Evan Rachel Wood and Elijah Wood (no relation). The trio will recount the history of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, with help from Will Ferrell as Frankenstein’s mother and Jack McBrayer as the poet Lord Byron. Hilarious, historical, and with just enough factual information to help you pass your book report.

Hampton DeVille office workers Matt (Matt Ingebretson) and Jake (Jake Weisman) are ready to move up the food chain, but with new responsibility comes new disasters, including office crushes, make-up for men, going out on a work night, and a new merger that has everyone worried. It’s so weird and so relatable.
