Last Comic Standing debuts tonight.
NBC’s Last Comic Standing, subtitled “The Search for the Funniest Person in America,” debuts tonight at 9 p.m. ET with two back-to-back hour-long episodes. It follows a talent search in front of a panel of judges, and then watches as the group of finalists live in a house together and apparently vote one comic out every week. The last comic standing after eight episodes gets “an exclusive talent contract” with NBC and a Comedy Central special. The show repeats on Comedy Central Saturday nights at 9 p.m. ET, except this Saturday, when the first two eps air from 8 to 10. The show is hosted and produced by Jay Mohr, and the judges are Joy Behar, Buddy Hackett, Mo’Nique, Colin Quinn, Caroline Rhea, and Joe Rogan.
