Clip of the Day: Brunch Village

It's late Sunday morning, which means only one thing - Brunch!  

Today's clip of the day comes from last Friday's special hour long Director's Cut version of the "Brunch Village" episode of Portlandia.  The special episode, which is also our favorite, breaks from the typical sketch format to feature multiple story lines and multiple versions of Fred and Carrie all intersecting over a Sunday morning brunch in Portland.  Here's the beginning of the episode:  

I would write more, but we're heading out to brunch ourselves.  Hope we eat before noon!

TV Star Web Series Round Up

As a continuation to our previous Web Series post, here are some more summer Web Series featuring some of our favorite TV stars:

We've previously posted the first 3 episodes of John Lutz's (30 Rock) hilarious web series "The Front Desk".  Now here's episodes 4-6 featuring Miriam Tolan (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon), Fred Armisen (SNL, Portlandia), and Scott Adsit (30 Rock):

We also previously posted the first 3 episodes of Abby Eliliott's (SNL) web series "The Assistant", so now here's episodes 4 and 5!

Also, sitcom legend Jerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld) has a new web series called "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee", where he and his famous comedian friends talk about random stuff in the car on their way to get coffee.  It doesn't start until Thursday, but here's a promo:

And lastly, while not quite a web "series", here's a fun College Humor parody trailer for a Dora the Explorer movie starring Modern Family's Ariel Winter (who plays Phil and Clair's middle child Alex):

Clip of the Day: Jimmy Fallon's "Do Not Read List"

I know we haven't posted anything new in a while.  In the summertime there's just not much TV to get excited for, and the heat makes us extra lazy.  So sorry about that.  We'll try to start posting a little more regularly.

But while watching this clip from last night's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, I was laughing so hard I just had to post it here.  In one of our favorite Late Night bits, Jimmy shares with us his "Do Not Read List".  As Jimmy points out in the beginning, these are real actual books that are just so ridiculous you won't believe they actually exist.  While the first one might make you chuckle, it's the second one that had me laughing so hard I could hardly breathe.  Check it out:

And in case you didn't believe they were real, you can order them all online from "The Zon" right now:
