The 2-acre-plus property had been priced at $6.995 million. The listing says the property is in upper Bel-Air, although the Los Angeles Times Mapping Database considers the location to be Sherman Oaks.
The 5,100-square-foot single-story house sits off a circular motor court. Features include wood-paneled ceilings, expanses of windows, four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. There is a tennis court, an infinity pool with a spa and mature landscaping.
Brooks, 65, appeared last year in "Drive" and has been in guest spots on "The Simpsons" since 1990. He was nominated for an Oscar for his supporting role in "Broadcast News" (1987).
Griffin, who died in 2007 at 82, hosted the talk show bearing his name for more than two decades starting in the early 1960s. He created game shows including "Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune" through his own production company.
