    That seems like a typical Che response to me. He's pretty thin-skinned and lashes out. Colin the most hated ever? Heh. That seems kinda a silly assertion. I personally find him so inoffensive that I can't imagine working up the energy to dislike him that much. Now Che, on the other hand, has worked my last nerve more than once. Right off the top of my head, Colin is nowhere near the levels of Chevy or even Dennis Miller as the most hated cast member.

    S44.E18: Emma Stone / BTS

    One week later and the beginning of the cold open saying it was back to prison shows for cable news seems horribly dated.

    S44.E18: Emma Stone / BTS

    I think that might be somewhat the point though. It's obscure enough that people don't scream "NOT relevant!" I didn't recognize the song and I was very much alive and kicking in the 80s. I kinda roll my eyes a bit at Seth vetoing a Nancy Reagan parody. Kristin Wiig had a recurring character/sketch based around The Lawrence Welk Show for goodness sake. At least Nancy Reagan is a character people could still identify. (And also noting how people always loved Bill Hader's Alan Alda impression, too.) So it's all in your perspective. Hey don't forget Jan Hooks! Remember her sketch blending Nancy with Mrs Robinson?

    S38.E10 Blood of a Blindside

    This season is really bringing home how it takes some strategic skill to know when to play a hidden idol. It's really interesting that the vets (Aubry, David, and Kelly) have all messed that up.

    S38.E10 Blood of a Blindside

    I thought the first half was deadly dull. If only David and Rick hadn't burned their buddy idol at the previous Tribal. Things got more interesting with the Wentworth vote, but now I'm all worried freaking Wardog will win. Bleh. Can't believe Wenthworth's Survivor Spidey senses weren't tingling with all the talk about being "too comfortable." The thing now is I don't have any favorites still in the game, and I think I would rather watch a whole show of Extinction Isle rather than the actual show.

    Kenan's sitcom pilot getting a series order sounds like it's pretty much a done deal.

    S44.E18: Emma Stone / BTS

    I absolutely agree about the voice and look being completely off, which were big reasons I had trouble getting into it. I need to watch the whole sketch again because it kinda threw the whole thing for me. I think perky might be the keyword. Loughlin always seems so perky, like on a Mary Hart level, that it can come off obnoxious. I still think Emma or Heidi could have brought that out. And it would had fine for Emma to do as I don't think they will need to repeat it much at all. Did Pete's Avenatti say he's going to run with Alec Baldwin? I think I enjoyed the Royals sketch more than most. It was just a good excuse for everyone to be silly for a few minutes. (And for Alex to show off again for the third or fourth time in recent weeks that he's pretty buff.)

    That would have made more sense and work better. She definitely looked more like Felicity, too.

    S44.E18: Emma Stone / BTS

    It's been noticed in the media coverage that she's acting like she likes being in the limelight again. She's been telling camera crews they can follow her around all day. She has been signing autographs outside the courthouse and in general playing up being a star. I think that would had been funny if they captured that. The way Loughlin was written here did nothing for me.

    S44.E18: Emma Stone / BTS

    Oh yeah, The Actress was a masterclass. That showed how good Emma is and that's probably what will give Emma an Emmy nomination for guest actress. I wasn't really focused on it, but from what I heard BTS was very generic boy band. Not bad per se, but not my thing. Again I'm waaay past that demographic, so it doesn't matter.

    S44.E18: Emma Stone / BTS

    I thought it was ok and generally got better as it went along. It doesn't really matter as Emma is such a pro at this. She was born to do the show. Gotta be honest. Kate was a misfire for me as Lori Loughlin. I actually thought Emma would be a better choice for that. She needed to be somewhat flirty and trying to sign autographs for everyone. I was also embarrassed how dead silent it was when Michael Keaton was doing his lines and then I remembered ... BTS crowd. Better writing would had helped, too. Enjoyed the monologue. You can tell how much this is means to Emma. I was momentarily excited that there was going to be more of a tribute to Gilda. But that's ok. Wow, didn't expect the venom from Aidy for Meghan McCain. That was the whole sketch for me. (I wish her Sarah Sanders had half the bite, but whatever.) I thought Aidy had a great show in general. It really got going for me with Update. Aidy, Mikey, and Heidi all brought the gusto to their characters. I laughed when Heidi named dropped Pete. I noticed tonight how similar the fights of that couple remind me of a couple I know who are both about 30. Scary. And sad. I heard that too! I was thinking there's the Gilda tribute I wanted. Can't wait til Emma becomes a 5 Timer. She deserves it.

    I know. My honest first reaction was, "is that like IBS"? 😮

    SNL Cast Discussion

    That's hilarious! Not sure if the Hulu Limited Series affects Kate's status going forward. It hasn't for Aidy. At the end of the day, Kate doesn't seem the type who would willingly blow off Lorne. There's no way Lorne would want to lose her and Kenan at once. He may agree to reduce her workload next year. I believe he did for Bill Hader's last season. Bill was only coming in maybe the Friday before the show.

    S38:E09 Y'all Making Me Crazy

    Wentworth really does have some stones not playing her idol. How do you not play your idol after that insane mess?

    S38:E09 Y'all Making Me Crazy

    I knew when the IC started at 8:15pm that something crazy would happen. I assume they did have a RC that they edited out.
