Biweekly and Monthly Shows
While weekly comedy events will keep you avoiding sleep and things you really should get done, you definitely don’t want to miss out on even more local biweekly and monthly shows. As I wrote in my previous comedy post, things are going on all the time in Albuquerque. Here are the less frequent but equally funny shows going on around town.
First Monday of every month, 10pm, Duncing in the Dark (Burt's Tiki Lounge, 313 Gold Ave SW)
Every other Wednesday (starting Jan. 13), 7pm, Mishmash Miscellany Assortment (MMA) Open Mic (Rio Bravo Brewing Company, 1912 2nd Street NW)
First Thursday of every month, 7:30pm, Carpe Diem Comedy (Imbibe, 3101 Central Ave NE)
Third Thursday of every month, 10pm, Third Thursday Comedy Contest (Tractor Brewing Company, 1800 4th Street NW)
Second Saturday of every month, 8pm, BlueByrd Comedy at Desert Rose Playhouse (Desert Rose Playhouse, 6921 Montgomery Blvd NE)
Second Saturday of every month, 10:30pm, #Microcomedy (Chama River Microbar, 106 2nd Street SW)

Networks add scads of shows to fall season
Last week, we took a glimpse at all the shows the networks were tossing away at the end of this season. So let’s look over all they’ll be adding in the fall.

The Canceled Shows of 2012
The broadcast networks have already started showing off their shiny new fall schedules. That means, of course, the conspicuous absence of several shows you may or may not have liked. Yup, the ax has fallen, and a whole host of network shows have been canceled. Some escaped by the skin of their teeth. (ABC’s low-rated but highly regarded “Cougar Town” is moving to TBS in 2013.) Others emerged battered and beaten. (Fan-fave “Community” will return next season. For a truncated 13 episode run. On Friday nights. Paired with “Whitney.” Also, creator Dan Harmon was told to take a hike.) So which shows are gone, gone, gone?
