Morning Debriefing 10/24/11

1) It might just be what you need on late Monday night: Charlyne Yi and Matt Braunger on Conan (TBS 11PM) as well as Zach Galifianakis on Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC 12AM)

2) On this episode of the Tommy Wi Show, TW demonstrates how he can’t read the words “return to race” while playing Driver: San Francisco.

3) Fake Criterions, the blog that posts photoshopped Criterion DVD covers, is having a contest commemorating their first year. Did I mention it’ll be judged by Paul Scheer, Jake Fogelnest, and more.

4) Raj Desai’s first college admissions essay that kept him from college for a year.

5) Megan Amram’s Online Quiz to find out if you’re a slut or have cancer.

6) Leave it to us to plan our 365th Day on the same night that 13 other live shows that are worth going to are taking place. Once you’ve gotten your comedy fill elsewhere in LA, especially if you’re just down the street at Performance Anxiety, stop by Bar Lubitsch and give us a hug. 

7) Noah Pickelny gives bluegrass some serious street cred
