1) Netflix isn’t messing around: All 10 new episodes of Arrested Development to be released at once.

2) Kind of big deal lists:
Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World featuring Louis CK, Kristin Wiig, and Stephen Colbert
50 Funniest New Yorkers by Time Out New York

3) Last night on late night:

Tonight on late night:
Paul F. Tompkins on Conan (TBS 11PM)
Michael Ian Black on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (CBS 12:35AM)

4) Louie Season 3 promo. Also, CK will be releasing stuff on in Mid-May like his Carnegie Hall “audio type comedy thing” WORD. Please accept our apologies for not RT’ing immediately 6 days ago.

5) Speaking of Louis CK and influence, he’s inspired Brendon Small to join the fold of DIY comedy projects

6) Clips of upcoming IFC comedy series involving dogs that are awesome:
Kurt Braunohler’s Bunk
Zach Galifianakis on Comedy Bang Bang 

7) Just in case you forgot about how excited we are about Wes Anderson’s upcoming Moonrise Kingdom, here’s a boatload of character posters.

8) Rick Shapiro is recovering from a ‘cardiac event’

9) In case you missed it, a bunch of Channel 101 folks did their own rendition of The Who’s Tommy live and Vice wrote it up.

10) Last night I saw two cars getting towed and subsequently chased by their owners, two ambulances going opposite directions, two police car chases, and a man having a nervous breakdown at a Coffee Bean. Glad to be home LA.
