IFC to air 'The Larry Sanders Show,' 'The Ben Stiller Show' and more

Stiller Let the off-kilter comedies live on.

IFC announced Thursday that it has picked up "The Larry Sanders Show," "The Ben Stiller Show,"  "Mr. Show with Bob and David" and "Action."

For those with a fading memory (the '90s can do that to a person), here's your chance to get reacquainted.

The shows are a welcome addition to the network's current roster of laugh-filled programming, which includes "Monty Python's Flying Circus," "Arrested Development," "Freaks and Geeks" and "Undeclared," along with new originals "Onion News Network" and "Portlandia.”

The series will alternate through a 90-minute comedy block hosted by Scott Aukerman, founder of the Comedy Death-Ray, that will air on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. ET/PT beginning Jan. 3.

The block will feature exclusive interviews with writers, creators and stars of each show, along with comedians who have been influenced by them. The debut will feature interviews with Andy Dick ("The Ben Stiller Show") and Sarah Silverman ("The Show").

"Larry Sanders" is scheduled to debut Jan. 3; "Ben Stiller" Jan. 5; "Mr. Show" Jan. 7 and "Action" in late 2011.
