‘Quinn’ in; quizzers queue

Laffer cabler also orders pilots for 'Funny,' 'Real'

Comedy Central has given a 21-week order to new weeknight series “Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn.”

Separately, Game Show Network has ordered pilots for two shows that have been in development since last year: “National Lampoon’s Funny Money” and “The Real Deal.”

At Comedy Central, “Tough Crowd,” which got a two-week on-air tryout in December, will air Monday-Thursday at 11:30 p.m. starting March 10. That pairs “Tough Crowd” with Comedy Central staple “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.”

Hosted by Quinn, “Tough Crowd” features comedians discussing issues in the political, social and pop culture arenas.

As for the Game Show pilots, “Funny Money,” hosted by comedian Jimmy Pardo, comes from In-Finn-ity Prods. and Budd Friedman Digital in association with National Lampoon. Gamer tests contestants’ comedy knowledge. Pilot will be taped at Budd Friedman’s Improv in Los Angeles.

“The Real Deal” is exec produced by David G. Stanley and Scott A. Stone from Stone Stanley Entertainment along with filmmaker Richard Donner and his partner Cathleen Summers.

“Deal” is a fast-paced comedy gameshow in which contestants vie for money as they attempt to determine the origin of popular phrases such as “three sheets to the wind” or where well-known names like Godzilla and ‘N Sync originated.

Host Greg Proops will be joined by featured celebs who provide clues to the contestants.
