Friday TV Picks: Jon Hamm on 'Comedy Bang! Bang!' on IFC
TV picks for Friday, June 22, 2012, include IFC's "Comedy Bang! Bang!," with guest Jon Hamm; "House Hunters on Vacation" on HGTV; and "Flying Wild Alaska" on Discovery.
Tonight in Prime Time
'Comedy Bang! Bang!'
And the quirk just keeps on coming over at IFC. Scott Aukerman's take on the late-night talk/sketch comedy show is, yes, pretty darn quirky (and Reggie Watts is great fun as the "one-man musical mastermind"). The celebrity guests can be fun, too. Tonight: Mr. Jon Hamm. 10 p.m. Friday on IFC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
