TORONTO (March 1, 2017) – Just in time for March Break, Much announces its March programming lineup today, as well as a nationwide freeview, available March 7 until April 4. Home to new comedy classics SOUTH PARK, THE SIMPSONS, and AMERICAN DAD, Much continues to deliver some of the most irreverent and entertaining comedy programming this month, including new British comedy BROTHERHOOD and the genre-busting prank show FAMELESS, along with the debut of Conan O’Brien’s new CONAN WITHOUT BORDERS: MADE IN MEXICO special. Also not-to-be-missed on Much, new episodes of the Lorne Michaels and Jason Sudeikis series DETROITERS, and returning fan-favourites, including hit weekly viral video series TOSH.0 and ridiculous ensemble comedy WORKAHOLICS (visit for local listings). Additionally, the special freeview gives viewers a chance to catch up on a selection of Much’s programming, including past seasons of fan-favourites WORKAHOLICS and ANOTHER PERIOD, with a free on demand sampling, through participating television providers. Viewers can access Much’s nationwide freeview through more than 30 TV service providers across Canada, including Bell, Bell Aliant, Cogeco, Eastlink, Rogers, SaskTel, Shaw, Shaw Direct, TELUS, Videotron, and several CCSA partners including Westman Communications Group and Tbaytel. March madness begins with the series premiere of BROTHERHOOD airing Mondays at 10:30 p.m. ET, beginning March 6. The hilarious British series follows two brothers who become surrogate parents to their younger sibling when their mother passes away. On Thursday, March 9 at 10 p.m. ET, Conan O’Brien looks to put a positive spin on current United States / Mexico relations and heads south with his new CONAN WITHOUT BORDERS: MADE IN MEXICO travelogue special. Then, the genre-busting prank show FAMELESS makes its debut on the Much, airing Mondays at 10 p.m. ET beginning March 13. The weekly series, hosted by comedian and actor David Spade, features a group of unsuspecting desperate-to-be-famous individuals who believe they've been cast on a reality show. However, unbeknownst to them, they are really filming a parody with improv actors creating over-the-top scenarios that steadily increase the absurdity and ridiculousness of each situation. Thursday nights make waves with the return of TEAM NINJA WARRIOR: COLLEGE MADNESS beginning March 16 at 10 p.m. ET. In this special college edition, top athletes go head-to-head against rival universities in teams of three – two men and one woman – who battle it out in one of the world’s most intense obstacle course. Also set to make its Much debut this month, across one swashbuckling, glorious week, is the complete PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN series. Airing daily at 2:30 p.m. ET, the Johnny Depp-led franchise kicks off with PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL on Monday, March 20, followed by PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST on Tuesday, March 21, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD’S END on Wednesday, March 22, and concludes with its most recent installment, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES on Thursday, March 23. All month long viewers can tune in to new episodes of fan-favourite TOSH.0, airing Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET. The series, which highlights the most infamous viral videos of the week and the people who create them, is hosted by comedian Daniel Tosh, who eviscerates each and every wannabe online star. Bringing all of the hustle with none of the flow to the March schedule are new episodes of the brand-new series DETROITERS, airing Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET. The series, from the minds of Lorne Michaels (SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE) and Jason Sudeikis (THE LAST MAN ON EARTH), follows two fledgling ad-men and best friends, determined to make it as big-shots in Detroit. Finally, fans can take a moment and say goodbye, with season and series finales airing this month. Blake, Adam, and Ders, also known as the laziest workers alive, make the most of their final days at TelAmeriCorp in the series finale of WORKAHOLICS, Wednesday, March 15 at 10 p.m. ET. Then, highly acclaimed REVIEW begins its final season of critical exploration at the hands of Forrest MacNeil, Wednesday, March 22 at 10 p.m. ET, followed by the Season 1 finale of JEFF & SOME ALIENS at 10:30 p.m. ET.
