Morning Debriefing 12/19/11

1) Jon Daly has a podcast and it’s called Rafflecast. Jon Daly gets to do whatever he wants. That’s all you should need to hear in order to listen.

2) Tonight, Young Adult writer Diablo Cody will be on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno (11:35PM NBC) and Seth McFarlane will be on Conan (11PM TBS). 

3) Eat your heart out Food Network. There’s no way proper cooking is as entertaining as the new episode of Henry Phillips’ Henry’s Kitchen.

4) And now, for the rousing conclusion to Danger 5’s Diamond Girls, after which, there should be a proposal for an Alternative WWII History course in colleges around the country.

5) The NY Times does a piece on Louis CK and finds that he’s getting ever closer to making a million on Live From the Beacon Theatre.

6) Is there some sort of animal crackers video contest that Puddin’ could win?
