If you’ve been seeing Amy Schumer all over your Facebook feed lately, it’s because the third season of her sketch sitcom Inside Amy Schumer is debuting tonight on Comedy Central. She was at the Tribeca Film Festival this week to premiere the new season and offer some hints about what fans of the shit-stirring comedy can expect, including a sketch about Bill Cosby. More from HuffPo[1]:

Schumer came up with the idea to have a support group of “girls who wouldn’t say what happened, but they were all wearing Cosby sweaters.” The “Inside” writers first began working on the sketch when the Cosby sexual assault allegations[2] started making headlines last year. Schumer said the sketch stirred some heated debates in the writers’ room: “I think we probably talked about this scene more than any other scene we’ve done.”

Upper Darby’s Tina Fey will appear in what HuffPo calls one of the best episodes of the season:

In one of the best sketches from the Season 3 premiere, [Julia Louis-Dreyfus], Fey and [Patricia] Arquette appeared to celebrate Louis-Dreyfus’ last “fuckable” day. Writer Jessi Klein said the sketch was inspired by the idea of “actresses aging out of Hollywood.”

Catch the new season when it debuts tonight on Comedy Central at 10:30 pm.
