Story | Jul 11, 2013 | 2:51 PM"Comedy Bang! Bang!" (IFC, Friday). Scott Aukerman's funny, not entirely faux talk show, developed from a podcast of the same name -- but with roots also in "Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis," the studiously awkward Web series he has produced and directed -- returns to IFC for a second season. (At 20 episodes, its twice the length of the first). Tonally, it is a kids' show for adults, a kind of mix of "Fernwood 2Night," "Space Ghost Coast to Coast" and "Pee Wee's Playhouse," with the earnest, unfocused flavor of public access cable (carefully re-created). Some parts are unscripted -- from actual "informative" conversation to the common creation of a false reality -- and others are elaborately staged. (Running through the new season's second episode is a "Fantastic Voyage" parody in which a miniaturized medical team, led by Christopher Meloni, enters Aukerman's body to cure his cold; a segment in the first finds hairy one-man bandleader and comic foil Reggie Watts going "Tron," as he enters the Internet to fetch some tweets (there to meet Selma Blair and Lance Reddick). The rhythms of the show stay dry and deadpan even in moments of excitement, while the lack of an audience creates a kind of persistent mist of uneasiness: Why is no one laughing? Guests on the season opener include Andy Samberg as himself, or a version thereof, and Jordan Peele as a psychic; next week brings Aziz Ansara and man-of-many-faces Nick Kroll as the show's craft services supervisor.
