Morning Debriefing 8/12/11

1) The hilarious Auggie Smith got bumped from his stand-up appearance on Lopez Tonight not by Russell Peters, not by Arsenio Hall, or George Lopez himself, all experienced comedians, on the final episode of Lopez Tonight, but by Metta World Peace (Ron Artest). Start at 6:20

2) Jeff Garlin inks deal at ABC, though it’s still pretty pretty pretty–prettyyyyy unclear whether Curb Your Enthusiasm is at its final season.

3) Kyle Mooney (of Good Neighbor) gets hired by Jimmy Kimmel Live.

4) The Compatish goes a live AND does impressions of anyone to Christopher Walken all the way to Paul Danke.

5) Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi get to the bottom of Michelle Bachmann’s infamous Newsweek photoshoot.

Behind the Scenes of Michele Bachmann’s Newsweek Cover – watch more funny videos

6) Conan O’Brien gets a frangance that isn’t called Cone Bone No. 69.
