Morning Debriefing 6/20/11

1) Perform This Way by Weird Al Yankovic

2) Today: the wonderfully hilarious Jamie Lee will be hosting coverage of the Critics’ Choice Television Awards for Do not miss.

3) What Megan Amram thinks an episode of “Games of Thrones” is like without having ever seen the show.

“Enter JAIME LANNISTER, an important member of the 92,924,024-person cast. He has just finished elaborately sexing a glimmering satyr with his shimmering be-amuleted penis. P.S. There are 356,753,103 satyrs in this show. They are half-horse/half-sexy horse.”

4) The march for the Onion getting a Pulitzer via their own grassroots organization AFAJP continues with the celebrity backing of Arianna Huffington, Tom Hanks, and Mario Batali. I wonder what Literally Unbelievable will makes of this.

5) Louis CK doesn’t want his show to go on forever. [via Caroline’s on Broadway]

6) This Thursday, you don’t have to leave the house: Futurama on Comedy Central 10PM, Louie on FX 10:30PM, AND Nick Kroll on Conan 11PM.
