Morning Debriefing 11/4/11

1) The news that Marc Maron pilot might go somewhere was good enough for us, but possibly going to IFC has made our Friday.

2) Late Night Round-Up: Louis CK reminisces of making fun of Conan on Conan, Dave Attell doesn’t hit on Kristen Stewart on Leno, and Chris Hardwick makes good on a dare to wear weird shoes on Fallon.

3) If you didn’t bother watching CK on Conan, you might have not found out that CK’s new special WORD will be released exclusively through his website for $5.

4) Spin Magazine names the 40 Greatest Comedy Albums of All Time… and let the arguing and trolling begin.

5) Gallery 1988 Melrose has an exhibition, “Please Post Bills”, an art tribute to the one and only Bill Murray. [via JonahRay]

6) Parks and Rec expands to having a web series

7) In case you haven’t notice Asterios Kokkinos has been killing all things Internet with the funniest Whitney sign, a PDF on 50s “seduction technology”, and listing what status updates will get you unfriended by him on FB.

8) Thanks to LA Weekly, The Heart, She Holler makes a little more sense.

9) Channel 101-Get to know it, if you don’t already (We wrote about it on the Nerdist) because it’s only going to get bigger. Even Dr. Cornel West thinks so

10) The LA comedy scene gets found out by TootIt. Hopefully, more folks find out about the LA comedy scene and follow the example of NY Times continuing their coverage of comedy

11) Take a step back to your childhood a see what the wool that was pulled over your eyes while watching The Sandlot or the TV spots for the board game Crossfire.

15) Universal Chief Ron Meyer recently confessed to how shitty some of Universal’s recent releases have been and I can only wonder that how he didn’t know that most of those weren’t going to work before hand.
