UFC on FX - Johnson vs. McCall Preview

They engaged in one of the most exciting fights thus far in 2012, and on June 8th, Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson meets Ian "Uncle Creepy" McCall in a rematch that will determine which 125-pound contender will fight Joseph Benavidez for the first-ever UFC flyweight championship.

Comedy Bang! Bang! - "Zach Galifianakis Wears a Blue Jacket & Red Socks" Preview

When Zach Galifianakis steps on to the set of Comedy Bang! Bang! anything goes, apparently. When he was on Comedy Death Ray with his old Between Two Ferns pal Scott Aukerman, they didn’t talk about sports teams or the weather or anything boring like that. Instead they talked about gerbils, high school, and microwaves. So when he gets to make music with Reggie Watts it won’t be the standard forcing-your-guests-to-sing-with you fare.

Common Law - Ex-factor Preview

The return of Travis' ex-partner causes a rift between the guys after they are placed on a special task force with the Beverly Hills Police Department, assigned to stop a crime ring focused on stealing high end cars.
