The “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” might be off the air, but the Married News Team — Jan and Wayne Skylar — are still around. In the Season 3, episode 3 episode of “Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule,” the pair returns in a special focusing on “Home.”
In the above Zap2it
-exclusive clip from the episode, Jan welcomes Steve into the new home that she and Wayne have been living in for 12 weeks. But there’s a catch — apparently this is the “final resting place” of Wayne.
The logline of “Home” reads: “Dr. Steven Brule checks out what a home is and where some people live.”
The return of Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim as Jan and Wayne is welcome for fans of both Adult Swim series, but most of the actors who come on the show (with the exception of the recurring ones) are unaware that the series they’re a part of is actually a comedy show.
“The point of the show is not to make a fool of the people we’re interviewing. The point of the show is that really Steve is the fool,” star John C. Reilly tells Zap2it. “And the best interviews are with people who just stick to their guns and take it seriously and answer his questions in a logical way.”
He continues, “We do a lot of interviews, and a lot of them don’t make it on the show. Those are the ones where people are like, ‘Oh, I get it. It’s a comedy show. I’m in on the joke.’ … That’s immediate death for the show.”
“Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule” airs Thursday (March 13) at 12:30 a.m. on Adult Swim. Zap2it will have more sneak peeks and more insight from Reilly into the show each week.
