IFC’s ‘Automat’ to feature cult TV hits

'Larry Sanders,' 'Ben Stiller' set for early morning slot

Cult comedy skeins will be returning to the smallscreen beginning next month thanks to IFC’s early ayem “Automat” series.

Cabler is staggering the broadcast of shows during “Automat” from October till January, airing episodes in the 5-6 a.m. timeslot.

In October, IFC will run episodes of “Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town” and “Undeclared.” November will feature ayem airings of “The Larry Sanders Show,” and in December, IFC will broadcast episodes of “The Ben Stiller Show,” “Mr. Show” while “Freaks and Geeks” and “Action” air in January. The thinking is that auds enjoy DVRing their fave shows during the dawn timeslot for later viewing.
