Morning Debriefing 9/26/11

1) FINALLY! Pete Holmes’ perfectly titled album “Impregnated with Wonder” will be released on Comedy Central Records on Nov. 15th

2) We could have bet on our favorites to make the Top 5 (meaning they won’t get cancelled) for Channel 101 this weekend as voters chose: 1) Intimate Indiscretions 2) Parent Project 3) Strange Cases 4) Honkers 5) Sex Teenagers. Nicely done all around. 

3) The last reality TV competition you ever need to watch… THE VOTE OFF.

4) Neal Brennan is on Conan tonight along with Kevin Hart. Possible precursor to another episode of the Champs (Brennan, Moshe Kasher, and DJ Douggpound interview a different black person)? 

5) Of course you were out and missed 60 Minutes last night because most of you are young and somewhat outgoing, so here’s the South Park segment.

6) If the internet had a water cooler, the Oral History of the UCB in NY Magazine is what everyone would be talking about today.
