Nathan Fielder finally found enough people who don't know how to use Google to fill up another season of his fake business improvement show Nathan for You, so it's returning for a long-awaited fourth season on Sept. 28.
The season will conclude with a two-hour season finale that Comedy Central promises will be \"unlike anything that has been broadcast on television before,\" which probably is not an exaggeration given the history of the show. Remember when he pulled off a stunt where a robot threatened to pull down his pants in front of children unless he could escape from some handcuffs in time
When I watch Nathan For You, I want something that uncomfortably blurs the line between reality and fiction, and that makes me question the nature of my reality. The finale of season 3 broke my brain with its ambition and execution, and I was hoping for something similar to occur this season as well.
Nathan Fielder will be available for all your small business consulting needs for at least one more year: Comedy Central has renewed Nathan for You for a fourth season, the star and creator announced on Twitter Thursday morning.
Nathan For You debuted in 2013, and follows Fielder as he gives struggling businesses really bad advice. For example, one especially noteworthy episode this season featured Fielder creating a jacket with a marketing campaign focused on Holocaust awareness. (Good news for fans: This jacket is actually available for sale, and all proceeds go toward the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre.)
Some of the best \"Nathan For You\" episodes involve celebrity impersonators, and \"The Richards Tip\" is among the finest. An L.A. diner enlists Nathan's help in getting public exposure in this episode from the show's fourth season. The plan is to hire a celebrity impersonator to leave a $10,000 tip, generating viral media buzz and flocks of curious customers.
\"Nathan For You\" landed media attention multiple times throughout its four-season run, but no episode made a greater splash than Dumb Starbucks from the first season. From the gutsy copyright infringement to Nathan's ridiculous fight with a lawyer to the entire Dumb Starbucks media campaign, this episode is a stone-cold classic.
If you didn't already know, \"Nathan For You\" is produced by \"Tim and Eric\" creators Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, whose eccentric and surreal comedy work at Adult Swim has had an immense impact on television comedy in the past decade. That \"Tim and Eric\" vibe is all over this episode from the show's fourth season, which has Nathan Fielder helping a chili shop and a massage parlor.
This episode from the show's second season is a triple-threat, offering some of Nathan's worst ideas with the funniest results. Throughout its three segments, Nathan ropes the owners of a liquor store, an extermination business, and a car wash into blatantly impractical schemes, and manages to tick off plenty of people in the process.
Every episode of \"Nathan For You\" involves somebody being uncomfortable on some level, whether it's the audience, the clients, or Nathan Fielder himself. (He deserves it). If we were to vote for the episode that made its guests the most visibly uncomfortable with Nathan's ideas, it would have to be \"Hotel/Travel Agent\" from the show's third season.
One of Nathan Fielder's most potent comedic superpowers is the ability to take a simple premise and expand upon it faster than the audience or his hapless guests can possibly process. That's the name of the game in the third season opener \"Electronics Store,\" which begins with discount televisions and descends into a nightmare world of crocodiles, court hearings, and an emo Nathan.
The show's second season kicked off with this unforgettable double-header, in which Nathan \"assists\" a mechanic and a realtor. Although the premises for these two segments are more straightforward than some of Nathan's most logistically impressive stunts, it's the unplanned moments that make this episode one of the show's best.
We love \"Nathan For You\" when it's tackling businesses, but the episodes where it subverts the formula and goes for bigger and more outlandish ideas are truly incredible. One of the finest examples is \"The Hero,\" closing out the show's third season with adrenaline rushes, identity theft, and a sprinkling of romance.
Deciding which episode of \"Nathan For You\" inspires the most second-hand embarrassment is difficult; that's what this show does best. But we nominate \"Souvenir Shop/ELAIFF\" from the show's second season, in which Nathan helps a Hollywood souvenir shop attract customers by staging the shooting of a movie.
Nathan Fielder is just what democracy ordered in the season 4 trailer for his Comedy Central series Nathan For You. The comedian returns to his docu-reality series with a heartfelt hope to put his business background to good use for small business owners.
\"Santa/Petting Zoo\" helps establish one of Nathan's recurring characters and shows how good this series is as a whole at staging viral events. In the Santa portion, Nathan helps a struggling Santa Clause impersonator by having them work out of a season at a discounted rate. However, Nathan soon realizes that the guy has a criminal history which puts a strain on their relationship.
This episode is a fun exploration of Billy Heath's quirky history and an oddly cathartic, emotional journey for Nathan himself, making this episode a distinct and surprisingly fitting season finale for the series.
The series ran for four seasons. In October 2018, Comedy Central confirmed that Nathan for You had ended, with Fielder deciding to focus on other projects. It received acclaim from critics, several of whom considered it one of the best TV shows of the 2010s.
The series centers on Nathan Fielder, portrayed by his real-life namesake, a business school graduate and consultant whose aim is to help struggling businesses. His marketing proposals are often outlandish and elaborate. One of the show's long-running story arcs concerns Fielder and his social awkwardness. Throughout episodes, his confidence is eroded as his ideas fail. In the show's first season, Fielder is unaware people do not enjoy his company. The character is based in Fielder's real life, and his own struggles with social anxiety; he has noted that he did not want the character to \"feel like a comedy character\" but one that delivers the \"most authentic moments from myself.\"
The series premiere garnered 354,000 viewers, improving in its second episode to 570,000. A special sneak peek episode that aired on March 13, 2013 after an episode of Workaholics further increased viewership, ending up at 615,000. The following episode, airing on March 14, had 428,000 viewers. The next week on March 21, ratings further took a dip, landing at 394,000 viewers. On April 26, 2013, Comedy Central renewed the series for a second season of 8 episodes. Season 3 premiered on October 15, 2015. On December 10, 2015, Variety announced that Comedy Central had picked up the show for a fourth season. The fourth season premiered on September 28, 2017, preceded by a one-hour special, \"Nathan For You: A Celebration\", which aired the week before. In June 2018, it was announced that Nathan for You would stream on Hulu.
In the second episode of season one, Fielder and the show's crew attempted to boost the popularity of a California petting zoo by turning one of their pigs into a celebrity through the filming of a hoax video of the pig (actually a trained stand-in pig following a plastic course placed beneath the surface) rescuing a goat who was stuck in a pond. Fielder had the crew sign non-disclosure agreements in order to maintain secrecy around the production.
Episode three of the show's third season focused on Nathan's attempt to help a struggling moving company by providing the business with free labor. The plan involved the creation and marketing of an original fitness routine called \"The Movement,\" which would emphasize the lifting of household objects (namely boxes and furniture) for exercise, and preclude the need for practitioners to go to a gym or health club. Nathan would then lure interested parties into working for the moving company by leading them to believe they were simply exercising. Marketing for \"The Movement\" involved a ghost-written book, which subsequently made it on to the Amazon best-seller list, and several television appearances by the \"inventor\" and public face of the routine, bodybuilder Jack Garbarino.
An appearance in the eighth episode of the show's first season by private investigator Brian Wolfe led to Wolfe getting his own reality series on Investigation Discovery, Cry Wolfe. This was referenced on Nathan for You on the eighth episode of the second season, when Nathan tried to get a similar reality TV deal for a security guard who had also appeared in season one.
For now, the Nathan For You Season 3 finale will air tonight at 10 p.m. ET, only on Comedy Central. If you are interested in what shows are coming up at midseason, you can check out our winter TV premiere schedule.
Dealing With Insect Issues Oftentimes when we see changes in seasons that are atypical we'll also notice an INCREASE IN INSECT POPULATIONS. And that is something they've experienced here as well. Aphids in particular. They're now heading into the Japanese Beetle season and Nathan is noticing an increase with them as well. How does he handle Japanese Beetles For More Information Click here
Cool Season Crops And Warm Season Crops This is a great time to visit because this is a transition time between the COOL SEASON CROPS AND THE WARM SEASON CROPS. Eric is somewhat surprised because that was a long time ago in the southeast. Right now we see rows of cabbage right next to rows of green beans They grow some of the standard cool season crops, things like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, beets, some potatoes, kale and musta
