While it's highly suspected that NBC will be canceling "Community" (although I fervently believe that fans should contribute to the 'Save "Community"' efforts) news comes out that NBC will be investing considerable amounts of money in a relaunch/reboot of "The Munsters". Originality seems to have finally lost out at NBC. Hey NBC, while you're at it, why don't you relaunch ABC's GEICO cavemen series? It seems about as likely to succeed and will probably be less expensive.
Tonight I'd like to urge you to check out Jimmy Pardo on "Conan" (see our interview with Pardo). The longtime warmup comic for "Conan" also has his "Pardo Patrol" web series on in addition to his fantastically successful NeverNotFunny podcast. This will be the first time Pardo actually guests on the program and I'm sure that Pardo will talk about his 3rd annual Pardcast-A-Thon which benefits SmileTrain. Congrats to Jimmy, we'll be watching!Also tonight, "The League" will have both Sarah Silverman and Jeff Goldblum as guests for their Thanksgiving episode. In late night we have the allstar "Chelsea Lately" roundtable lineup of Loni Love, Jo Koy, and Josh Wolf which you could probably watching before switching over to "Conan" to catch Pardo. Jason Schwartzman of "Bored To Death" will be voicing Geoff the Robot on Craig Ferguson's show where Robin Williams will be guesting.
Tomorrow is the "last" day Regis Philbin appears on "Live Regis and Kelly" at 9am on ABC. End of an era? My guess is that Regis will be plenty visible, the same way that Larry King seems to be on TV almost as often as he was pre-retirement. Still, it was fun to briefly talk to Regis at this year's TV Land Awards, he's a class act and has been a feature on TV on both coasts for half a century.
