    The "Weakly News" Returns to theStream.tv - It kicks off tomorrow!

    Good news, web nerds! The Weakly News is back!

    Starting with two consecutive Saturday nights, Oct. 15 and 22 at 5 PM PST / 8 PM EST and subsequently Mondays at 8 PM, comedienne Iliza Shlesinger (winner of Last Comic Standing 6 and host of CBS's new Excused) returns to theStream.tv with hard-hitting news (that holds you after). After six months of hiatus, The Weakly News is rallying for another round of ferocious comedy, streaming headlong live from a spacious new studio, now in HD. That's what we call an upgrade. Regardless, we're tuning in! You should, too.

    The show debuted on theStream.tv in 2007, and now returns with the full original line-up. Iliza is joined by co-host Alexis Archer, producer Brian Gramo and a loyal, live chat-in audience. The hyperactive hour starts with all the news that's fit to make fun of, accelerates off the bouncy comic dynamic in the room, and never looks back: grabbing your attention and pummeling it to submission. Bill Maher is the king of comedy news, as is Jon Stewart, and we're always ready to watch more.

    With over five million views, theStream.tv is the leader in live interactive entertainment. A visit to the website is rewarded with over 1400 hours of quality, on-demand programming—programming which has garnered numerous nominations and awards from the Streamys to Clicker.com. Webcasts start live on Justin.tv, and then edit to video on demand available not only on our site, but also on YouTube, blip.tv, and iTunes. All those accolades are well-deserved.
