Morning Debriefing 10/27/11

1) UCB LA is now accepting submissions for Maude Sketch Teams

2) Entertainment Weekly is releasing its comedy issue with Melissa McCarthy on the cover and Louis CK as a guest writer. Anyone want to see an EW vs. Spin comedy issue showdown?

3) Congrats go to Johnny Pemberton on joining the cast of Fox’s Neighborhood Watch.

4) Paul Scheer on Conan.

5) Tonight, Last Call with Carson Daly welcomes Reggie Watts (NBC 1:35AM) and TJ Miller makes his second appearance on Conan (TBS 11PM).

6) We’re just sayin’ that the deadline for submitting to RE:COM magazine is tomorrow and it’d be a damn shame to miss out getting your voice on comedy possibly heard.

7) You Make It Weird with Pete Holmes is finally here. That’s his podcast, just to be clear.

8) Jim Gaffigan moves up from co-starring on My Boys to having NBC buying a series based on his life.
