Comedy Central announced its slate of early 2016 programming this week, headlined by the return of "Broad," which is scheduled for Wednesday, February 17 at 10 p.m. According to the network, the 10-episode season three will focus on "Abbi and Ilana dealing with a slew of everyday challenges and adventures as they live their lives in New York City, including a trip to the DMV, a rat in the apartment, going clubbing, taking on new job responsibilities, visiting Abbi's dad and new hook ups."

In addition to "Broad," other returning shows include "Workaholics" (season 6, premiering January 14), "Tosh.0" (season eight, premiering February 9), "This Is Not Happening" (season 2, premiering February 23), and "Adam DeVine's House Party" (season three, premiering March 3).

New series set to make their debuts on the network are led by "Idiotsitter," co-created by "Workaholics" star Jillian Bell. The show "follows a filthy rich, young woman (Bell) whose wild lifestyle has landed her under house arrest and a down-on-her-luck Harvard grad (Charlotte Newhouse) who has to work as her court-mandated guardian." It premieres on January 14, following "Workaholics."

Also making its debut is "Not Safe w/ Nikki Glaser," starring comedienne and "Inside Amy Schumer" regular Nikki Glaser. In the series, "the self-proclaimed curious perv' hosts a place for comics to joke, learn, and share their personal stories about sex and relationships through panel discussions, field pieces, and social experiments." It premieres in February 9, following "Tosh.0."
