Morning Debriefing 7/25/11

1) What, no monsters?  How is this a horror movie?  Oh wait, that’s hilarious.  Please watch the Red Band trailer for Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

More Tucker & Dale vs. Evil Videos

2) Futurama doesn’t have to be raised from the dead for at least 2 more seasons.

3) Tonight in late night TV comedy appearances: Jon Benjamin (yes, the one from Jon Benjamin Has a Van) is on Conan (TBS 11PM) and Don Rickles will hopefully tell a better story on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (CBS 12:35AM) than he did on Leno.

4) Matt Kirshen on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

5) You almost have to forgive Pete Holmes as a doctor if you’re diagnosis is given like this…

6) Check out Rob O’Reilly and Barry Rothbart give Superman Brandon Routh his other kryptonite: annoying Domino’s surprise delivery people begging to try Domino’s new pizza.

The Last Pizza Commercial from Brandon Routh

7) So there’s is going to be an open mic this Friday under a floodlight in a park… Also, they’re going to use a megaphone instead of a mic, which is why it’s an “open meg”.
