Our guest host this week is MaxFun's very own Jordan Morris! He's a host and producer on FuelTV's The Daily Habit and of course, co-hosts our own podcast Jordan, Jesse, Go! You can also see him performing comedy at numerous venues throughout Los Angeles.

He'll talk to Paul Scheer, who last was on our show with the members of his MTV sketch comedy series, Human Giant. Paul is the creator and star of a new Adult Swim series, NTSF:SD:SUV::, a send up of police procedural shows like CSI. Paul explains that the show does not exist merely in parody, but comes from a place of love. He'll also talk about why having a giant budget can be a death knell for a project, fashion choices from his character Andre on FX's The League, and more.

You can see NTSF:SD:SUV:: Thursdays at 12:15am on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, catch Paul on The League on Thursdays at 10:30pm on FX.

Our long-time friend (really - he booked me and Jordan a Prank the Dean gig once!) Al Madrigal has joined the Daily Show as Senior Latino Correspondent. This was his (very funny) first segment on the show.

Bravo to one of comedy's top guys!

Phil Rosenthal, Creator of Everybody Loves Raymond: Interview on The Sound of Young America

Fifteen years ago, Phil Rosenthal created the sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, a show based on the absurdities and drama of normal people's real-life experiences (including those of the star, Ray Romano). The show became a huge hit and ran for nine seasons.

Now, he's the subject of a new documentary called Exporting Raymond, about the process of adapting his hit show for a Russian audience. He discusses culture shock and the challenges of translating Everybody Loves Raymond -- including tailoring it to viewers for whom the traditional sitcom is relatively unfamiliar, without losing the heart of the show itself.

Artie, the producer of The Larry Sanders Show, takes care of business. I've always wished I could have an Artie on my team. One of the most amazing characters in television history, and a testament to the astonishing talent and skill of Mr. Rip Torn.

Jim Real, "The Master of Would You Rather," called me with exciting news. An old favorite of ours, Brent Weinbach, was in a Honda commercial. As if that wasn't enough, he was also destroying the audience at Lopez Tonight.

BRAVO, WEINBACH. BRAVO.

I have received word that past TSOYA guests the Whitest Kids U Know will be returning to IFC in April. Which made me think about this sketch about Hot Dogs, which is one of my favorite comedy sketches ever. EVER.

Buddy Cole Gets His Own Bar

I really enjoyed getting the chance to talk with Scott Thompson about his amazing character Buddy Cole earlier this week. I agree that you could hardly have a sharper, smarter character than Buddy.

"Maybe that's why God's such a homophobe and Satan's so sexy..."
