Onion SportsDome: Comedy Central’s Promising Premiere

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, Cable, Video,

Tuesday was a big night for Comedy Central.

The evening marked the return of popular series Tosh.0, which became a solid lead-in for the channel’s side-splitting new series Onion SportsDome. And if you missed the premiere, it’s time to go on a TiVo hunting mission right now … because this is probably the best show of the season.

Brought to you by The Onion, the SportsDome is part parody, part satire and hysterical through-and-through. With segments like “Who Would You Kill,” Onion SportsDome shows us what all sports shows should look like. Hosts Alex Reiser and Mark Sheppard (played by Matt Walton and Matt Oberg) offer gut-busting deadpan delivery to lead the series.

The show’s total irreverence for all things sports makes it engaging and absolutely unique. We’re already hungry for more, but unfortunately the Dome won’t be back with a new episode until next week.

The half-hour series will be just one of two Onion-related programs to hit the airwaves next year. Comedy Central will also premiere The Onion SportsDome in January.
