FAKE NEWS WITH TED NELMS
December 13, 2017  | By David Bianculli

Comedy Central, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

SERIES PREMIERE: Ed Helms stars as, uh, Ted Nelms, in this new Comedy Central series, which presents Helms, as Nelms, anchoring a program of completely fabricated news. And yet it premieres the day after the Alabama special election for senator, so real news, right now, seems astounding enough. Yet here it is, with Fake News making fun of the format and presentation of the news more adeptly than any series since The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
