Acceptable TV: Legal Law


The folks behind Channel 101 and Channel 102 have a new project: Acceptable.TV. It's a lot like Channel 101 -- each TV show will have five short films, each presented as the first episode of a new "series." Over the weekend, the audience will choose which they'd like to see return. On the next episode, three are cancelled, and two renewed. They'll air "series" created by the Channel 101 team, as well as some created by viewers.

The first show airs March 23rd, but they've added some videos to the site already. Above is "Legal Law," starring our pal Jen Kirkman.

Tommorow, check out our interview with the series' Executive Producer, Dan Harmon.

The Internet's Got Tracy Morgan Goin' Nuts


This is amazing and delightful, and I can only thank Amelie Gillette for bringing it to the attention of the American People.

The host of the show does a great job, I think, in keeping it together while the behind the camera people laugh uproariously.

Does anyone still have that MP3 of Tracy going crazy on morning radio for like 20 minutes straight? I think I posted it here once, but I lost it.

Podcast: Entertaining with Amy Sedaris and Jimmy Carr


On this week's show, we entertain two wonderful (and entertaining) guests.

Jimmy Carr is one of the UK's most popular standup comics. Here in the US, he's hosted the game show Distraction on Comedy Central and appeared on Late Night and The Tonight Show. His new book, written with his long-time friend Lucy Greeves, is "Only Joking: What's So Funny About Making People Laugh?"

Then we talk with Amy Sedaris. She's a rabbit lover and taxidermied squirrel owner, as well as the author of "I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence." The book provides domestic advice of many types, ranging from recipes to costumes to how to make fake food out of felt.

Please share your thoughts on the show in the comments section!

Andy Barker: PI


NBC is previewing four full episodes of Andy Barker: PI, their new series with Andy Richter (and Arrested Development's Tony Hale).

I watched one. It didn't make a huge impression on me, but pilots rarely do. The bad news is that it's grabbing 30 Rock's timeslot... and with Scrubs, My Name is Earl and The Office looking pretty secure, it may be one or the other.

Steve Coogan v. Larry David


Holy cow!

Larry David is set to take on Alan Partridge in a battle to the death!

(Or at least, Steve Coogan's going to be on Curb next season.)

Zach Galifianakis

Zach Galifianakis is a stand-up comedian, best known for his piano-playing and one-liners. He's also an actor, and was a regular on the series Tru Calling. Really. Most recently, he was seen in the Comedy Central series Dog Bites Man and The Comedians of Comedy.

We talk with Zach about his short-lived but critically beloved VH1 talk show, "Late World with Zach," the curious arc of his career, and why he enjoy enacting a descent into madness on stage.

Brule's Rules


I think I am in love with Dr. Steve Brule, and with Tim & Eric: Awesome Show, Great Job!
