SEASON PREMIERE: This isn’t the first rodeo for Chip Baskets (Zach Galifianakis) – he started on this series taking a demeaning job as a rodeo clown. But as Season 3 begins tonight on FX, it’s the first rodeo Chip has managed to manage. Along with his twin brother Dale (also played, of course, by the delightfully deadpan Galifianakis) and their doting yet irritating mom (played, Emmy-winningly, by Louie Anderson), they’re now reviving and running the Bakersfield rodeo that had once hired, humiliated and fired Chip. But that was when the Chip was down. Now he’s the boss… one of them, anyway. For a full review, see Eric Gould's The Cold Light Reader.
