The first season of the Sarah Silverman Program was possibly an introduction for many to Silverman. A thin, youngish woman, Silverman (played by Silverman) displays the worldliness of a 9-year-old, the narcissism of Paris Hilton and the mouth of a sailor. Season two of the Comedy Central series continues Wednesday, Oct. 8 with two premieres: "High, It's Sarah" in which Sarah tries marijuana for the first time and discovers that pot highs can lead to deep lows--and the kidnapping of a captain of industry (played by guest star Garry Marshall); and in the second premiere, "The Mongolian Beef," Sarah learns that a longtime family prejudice against Mongolians may be short-sighted.
Brian Posehn and Steve Agee--who play Brian and Steve, respectively--are back as Sarah's "big, gay, orange neighbors," Laura Silverman (played by Laura Silverman) returns as Sarah's sweet, long-suffering sibling who is often responsible for bailing her sister out when Sarah's right/wrong switch is in the OFF position.
If Strangers With Candy and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia had a baby and it was adopted by the kids of South Park, the result might be The Sarah Silverman Program.
