1) Emmy nominations came out today and Louis C.K. is nominated four times (apparently he edited his own special, Hilarious.), Conan got nominated while Leno did not, Modern Family gets plenty of love (in Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, they take 4 of the six nominations), and Futurama gets a couple a nods.
2) NSFW Hal Rudnick’s doing an interview on the XXX Parody of Anchorman. Well, actually, he’s doing it while the movie’s shooting.
3) Paul Scheer leads the way with National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego:: Sports Utility Vehicle or NTSF:SD:SUV premieres on Adult Swim next week! Saw a preview at Scheer and Rob Hubel’s live show Crash Test and it was hilarious. Check out the teaser now, then watch it on Adult Swim next Thursday July 21st.
4) HOLY FUCK! Dave Ross gets interviewed in Laugh Button!
5) If you feel like truly staying in because you want to catch Louie on FX at 10:30PM, don’t forget to catch the premiere of the 2nd Season of the Green Room with Paul Provenza on Showtime 11PM AND the legendary Don Rickles will be making an appearance on the Tonight Show on NBC 11:35PM.
6) If you thought you were going to fly from the Long Beach Airport to Burbank this weekend to beat “Carmeggedon”, forget about it because it’s already sold out.
