Morning Debriefing 10/4/11

1) Rory Scovel’s Dilation is available today. Yes, that’s his comedy album and not a recording of a surgery, and also you should pick it up.

2) The Simpsons might come to an end due to pay cuts… Cue Simpsons retrospectives despite many people having moved onto another adult cartoon show.

3) Paul Scheer on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

4) The Todd Barry Internet War continues with a song about how he’s an idiot from Tim Heidecker and Aimee Mann

5) A new episode of Henry’s Kitchen is all we should have to say for you to watch it.

6) If you’re up later tonight, you can catch It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Kaitlin Olson and The Internet’s Megan Amram on Last Call with Carson Daly 1:35AM NBC.

7) Jimmy Pardo mano-a-mano with Aubrey Plaza.

8) AMC is developing it’s own sitcom though it didn’t need one.

9) The new “edition” of Comedy Royal is out, which I’ve boiled down to being a rotating online comedy museum. Whatever you think it is, please check it out.

10) Tom Scharpling yet again gives hope to music videos with the Stepkids, Kurt Braunohler, and Wyatt Cenac.
