Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer‘s “Broad City” is set to return to Comedy Central at 10 p.m. on Feb. 17. Season three will cover everything from a trip to the DMV, a rat in the apartment and going clubbing to taking on new job responsibilities, visiting Abbi’s dad and new hook-ups.
Comedy Central also announced that “@midnight” regular Nikki Glaser’s new sex and relationship series “Not Safe w/ Nikki Glaser” will premiere at 10:30 p.m. Feb. 9.

Oxygen’s reality series “Preachers of Atlanta” will premiere at 10 p.m. Feb. 3. The series follows five pastors with drastically different approaches to their ministry and covers everything from the validity of unorthodox ministry methods to the emotional effects of racial tensions with law enforcement.
Darius Rucker will host “American Country Countdown’s Top 10 Stories of 2015.” The special, set to air at 8 p.m. Dec. 17 on Fox, will chronicle the most talked-about moments of the year, and feature in-depth interviews with the genre’s biggest headline makers.

CMT’s upcoming scripted comedy “Still the King” has filled out its cast. Joining stars Billy Ray Cyrus and Joey Lauren Adams are “Mean Girls” alum Lacey Chabert, Leslie David Baker, Kevin Farley, Jon Sewell, Madison Iseman and Travis Nicholson.
Iseman has been cast as Cyrus and Adams’ daughter, who was conceived via a one-night stand. The series, currently in production in Nashville, centers around Cyrus’ character, a scandal-ridden, washed-up, one-hit-wonder who was kicked out of country music, only to emerge 20 years later as the second best Elvis impersonator around.
