Here's the newest installment of Colin Quinn's web series Cop Show featuring special guest Jim Norton, who plays a rat under interrogation by Quinn and his crew.

Here's the latest episode of Colin Quinn's web series Cop Show with special guest Jim Gaffigan, who is about as reluctant to perform his Cop Show role as a Congolese drug warlord (tasked with a bunch of product integration, no less) as hipster drug ring leader Amy Schumer was last week.
Colin Quinn's new web series Cop Show just premiered its first episode. Directed by The Chris Gethard Show's J.D. Amato and costarring Keith Robinson, Sue Jean Kim, Peter Grosz, and Griffin Newman, Cop Show follows Quinn as he stars in a cheesy Law & Order ripoff that, according to the debut episode, has the reluctant backing of Jerry Seinfeld: "It's not comedy," Quinn reminds him. "This is humor." Jim Gaffigan, Michael Che, and Amy Schumer are all set to show up in future episodes.
Last night, former Weekend Update anchors Colin Quinn and Seth Meyers had a chat about everything from the time Quinn wanted them to take over hosting for the 2012 Oscars to a bunch of Quinn's ideas for how Meyers can improve Late Night. Quinn also called out Fred Armisen — who was absent on last night's show — for ditching his bandleader duties to go to a comedy festival instead, telling Meyers "You gotta start cracking the whip around here."
