Celebrity High-Five: Ken Marino's 5 Favorite TV Shows

Ken Marino, how does TV.com love thee? Let us count the ways: 1) The State, 2) Veronica Mars, 3) Party Down, 4) Childrens Hospital, and as of late, 5) Burning Love, the hilarious web spoof of The Bachelor that concludes today on Yahoo! Screen. We could go on, but instead how about we just share this latest edition of Celebrity High-Five, in which Marino reveals his top five TV shows? Here are the comic genius's picks, in no particular order...


"The best. You can't say enough about this show. It's original, funny, sad, beautiful, crass. It's poetry in a TV show."

Sweet Genius

"If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and DVR every single episode. Ron Ben Israel, a charismatic pastry expert of indeterminate age and ethnicity, judges pastry chefs in three rounds. The chefs must win Ron Ben over with their culinary artistry using one of his inspirations as a jumping-off point for a genius dessert. Past inspirations include darkness, carousels, Russian dolls, ballerinas, and a python. Genius."

Key and Peele

"Jordan Peele and Keegan Michael Key are two of the funniest and nicest guys I've ever met. Their show is smart, topical, and relentlessly funny. I couldn't be happier that this show is a hit."

American Idol

"I'm still in. I know there's been talk of the ratings and the need for reinvention, but I've been a happy camper. This past season I was obsessed with Jessica and Joshua. I called them "my girl" and "my guy," which out of context seems really creepy. I kept episodes for months on my DVR and made countless people sit and watch my favorite performances."

Phineas and Ferb

"Three words: Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated."
