By David Kronke "Testees" may be the most sadistic situation comedy in history. This series, about human lab rats who allow themselves to be subjected to pharmaceutical experiments and trials, is ruthlessly cynical and yet (after one episode) fairly unfocused.

The Shield also made a star out of Michael Chiklis, who...

By Rick Porter, Zap2It, Chicago Jul. 15--FX has found a comedy that it thinks will pair nicely with the twisted sensibility of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." Its title? "Testees." The cable network announced Tuesday that it has ordered 13 episodes of "Testees" (sadly, that's just a working title at the moment) from Kenny Hotz, a writer for "South Park" and the creator and star of "Kenny vs. Spenny." It's scheduled to premiere Oct. 9, joining "It's Always Sunny" to form a one-hour...
