Morning Debriefing 10/6/11

1) Megan Amram on Last Call with Carson Daly.

2) While the first season of NTSF:SD:SUV comes to an end (Adult Swim 12:15AM) tonight, the third season of the League begins (FX 10:30PM). So, rest assured, karma has nothing to do with any of this.

3) Is Steve Martin, Jack Black, and Aubrey Plaza making appearances enough for you to watch the Tonight Show with Jay Leno? (NBC 11:35PM)

4) Too bad there is no option for a lockout for the Simpsons

5) Hank Williams apology outtakes from Funny or Die.

6) As Kyle Kinane once said, “Avoid working for Sioux Falls booker Brian Eugene Abrahamson at all costs.”

7) Despite it being quoted, reblogged, etc., here’s Huffington Post’s interview with Patton Oswalt

8) Please read a piece from our good friend and hilarious comedian, Jeremy Paul, How to Build the Ultimate Black Comedian: A Response.
