The trailer for new TBS comedy People of Earth features sarcastic aliens who call each other “dude” and Wyatt Cenac (of The Daily Show) as a reporter following a quirky group of alien abductees—while dealing with the aftermath of his own close encounter. It’s deadpan, it’s weird, and it actually looks genuinely funny.

People of Earth comes to TBS in October.

Comedy is much harder to execute than drama, imho. I want to watch something that will keep me laughing, but there hasn’t been a show to do that. Still, this could work.
