IFC’s Brockmire -- a seemingly sad story about a washed-up, alcohol-abusing, former major league play-by-play announcer attempting to rebound from a personal crisis and its shattering aftermath by calling games for an unremarkable minor league team at a rundown small town stadium – happens to be the best new comedy of 2017 to date. It is also the funniest; which isn’t always the case where great contemporary comedies are concerned. I can’t shake the feeling that my opinion is not going to change during the next nine months. In fact, I feel as strongly about Brockmire as I do about FX’s Feud, which I have already designated Program of the Year.
