MUMBAI: Some more chuckles coming your way, courtesy SabTV. Promoted by the Adhikari Brothers, the Hindi entertainment channel has plans to earmark 3 November with two new shows.
The channel will be launching a chat show Carryy on Shekhar hosted by Shekhar Suman and another comedy called Shri Sifarashilal. That apart, Sab TV will also be launching a brand new season of Anupam Kher hosted Say Na Something to Anupam Uncle.
Similar to his previous stand up cum talk shows like Sony's Movers and Shakers and Zee's Simply Shekhar, Carryy on Shekhar is an entertaining mix of Shekhar's satirical comments on current events, tete a tetes with celebrities' political debates and topical discussions. Produced by Sab TV, the show will telecast from Monday to Thursday at 10 pm.
While the promos have already begun airing, the show will follow the same format - initial 15 minutes of stand-up routine followed by an interview with a celebrity guest. However, one thing that will set it apart from its precedents is the unique way in which it is canned. The channel has worked out a system where the anchor will shoot an episode in the morning and it will be telecast on the same night. According to the media reports, the show is written by a team of eight writers Sanjeev Mehta, Zafar Khan, Sukhwant Kalsi, Mahesh Mirchandani, Shashank Shekhar, Raju Nigam, Sayeed and Shekhar Suman himself.
Next in the pipeline is a comedy show on the lines of the channel's hit comedies Office Office and Yeh Public Hai Yeh Sab Jaanti Hai, Shri Sifarashilal. Aired every Monday-Thursday at 9:00 pm, the show will have a tongue in cheek approach to exposing social ills.
Last launch of the day is Anupam Kher's take on Bill Cosby's Kids say the darnest things, Say Na Something to Anupam Uncle . The revamp version of the show, which aired every Friday at 8:00 pm, will now be aired every Monday and Tuesday at 8:00 pm. The show offers an opportunity to grown ups to peep into the innocent world of children. It gives kids a chance to express their views on anything that want to talk about.
