  • A preview of the upcoming animated show Bob's Burgers will air on Fox on Thanksgiving night. Bob's Burgers follows Bob and his family, who run a burger joint. Four of the five main characters are voiced by alums of The Sound: comedy writer H. Jon Benjamin, comedians Dan Mintz and Eugene Mirman and actress and comedian Kristen Schaal.

  • An HBO special, Talking Funny, featuring comedians talking about comedy, is in the works with Louis CK alongside other greats like Ricky Gervais.

  • Writer, actor and comedian David Wain has a new project, Cartoon Show, in development with IFC. The show "follows a large cast of iconic cartoon characters as they struggle to produce a daily variety TV show."

  • Writer Harmon Leon visits one of the cultural sites of California's Interstate 5 highway, Pea Soup Andersen's. It is not what he is expecting.

  • And finally, a new video from art rock band Les Savy Fav for their song "Let's Get Out of Here". Lead singer Tim and guitarist Seth joined us for a special set of songs at the live WNYC show a few weeks back, so look forward to a podcast of their set to be posted tomorrow!
