  1. So two of them have now been accounted for (this week's episode and next week's episode). There's still one episode (509) that hasn't been shown.
  2. The creator of the show, Simon Rich, doesn't appear to be involved with this season. Not sure why he left, but the new showrunner Dan Mirk was a writer on the first two seasons and a lot of the other writers appear to be the same, so the quality of the show shouldn't change too much. I believe Quinta Brunson (from "A Black Lady Sketch Show") is going to have a recurring role this season.
  3. If you watch the episodes on HBO Max, the episodes are uncut. There was a pretty funny joke in the second episode that was missed on the CW....it came after the line about "If we identify one of the UFOs, doesn't it then become an....FO?" Sergeant Maaka replies "I'll tell you what, why don't you two F.O." and makes them leave the room. 😄 The penis aliens were still blurred out in the original episode though.
  4. Yep, it looks like ABC is burning off two previously unaired episodes over the next two weeks. 7/21/21 (We.) 10:00 PM ABC (#510) Match Gala - Mario Cantone, Vivica A Fox, Antonio Brown, Hilaria Baldwin, Fred Armisen, Christie Brinkley 7/28/21 (We.) 10:00 PM ABC (#512) Horatio Sanz, Marilu Henner, Michael Colter, Ali Wentworth, Justin Long, Drea de Matteo The 7/28 episode is listed as the "season finale".
  5. How is this not a fake show Jack Donaghy created on "30 Rock"?
  6. Yes, Chloe Fineman played JoJo Siwa on SNL.
  7. Man, it's rare I watch a show where I feel embarrassed for EVERYONE involved, but.....oof.
  8. I'm just amused that the "deep voice" gene has been passed down from Warburton to his sons.
  9. I've only watched the pilot so far, but it seems like she is intentionally trying for a Tina Fey/Liz Lemon cadence in delivering her lines. It's kind of like when other actors star in Woody Allen movies and try do to their best "Woody" imitation in the lead role.
  10. Not to mention a baffling wordless cameo from Natasha Henstridge (from "Species") at the end of that job interview sketch.
  11. Tina's character was sort of a cross between original SNL writers Rosie Shuster (left in this pic) and Anne Beatts (far right).
  12. It's possible that they don't really know what order Fox is going to show the episodes in (they often show them wildly out of production order, and indeed some of the episodes airing this season are from the previously produced season of episodes). So they probably weren't writing this episode expecting that it was going to be the 700th aired episode.
  13. Yes, in order to keep the characters the same age (Lisa 8, Bart 10, Homer...in his mid-thirties, I think?) they have to keep retrofitting how long ago events occurred. So "six years ago" I guess meant six years ago from now, which would place this episode in 2014 (assuming they wrote this in 2020), in which Uber, Ipads, etc. were all in existence. I'm more shocked by the fact that the episode where Maude Flanders died happened in "our time" OVER TWENTY YEARS AGO. If the show was following real-time continuity, Rod and Tod would be in their late twenties or early thirties by now.
  14. She was one of the 3 backup singing girls in "Little Shop of Horrors"!
  15. Yeah, I'm a little surprised Thomas Middleditch couldn't suss out that the movie where a guy and his friend save Sharon Tate from being killed wasn't based on a true person 😀 It's funny that he was actually IN one of the 4 listed movies though.
  16. I forgot they have "The Conners" which is now on Wednesday nights and I guess is still doing well.
  17. It'll be weird if the show ends this season and "American Housewife" does as well. They'll kinda have to rebuild Wednesday night from the ground up.
  18. I wonder why the season was cut short, I assume it must be for Covid-related reasons. 9 episodes seems like an odd length for a season, generally a show either has a mini-season of 6 episodes or 13 (pre-being picked up for a full season).
  19. During that four-way phone call between Bow and her friends, one of the girls appeared to be on Zoom or some other kind of computer-based phone system, haha. The other 3 looked OK but her square looked all glitchy and computer-y, it kind of took you out of the '80s setting a bit 😄
  20. Is there an ABC game show McHale hasn't been on? He was on Celebrity Wheel of Fortune this week, lol
  21. Maybe she was recovering from that football match she had with Anthony in the Super Bowl commercial.
  22. I thought the line about "There's a special place in hell for gay men who don't help women" was funny. Tina Fey is still salty about her "feud" with Taylor Swift, all these years later. 😄
  23. I actually don't know why they need the fake audience reaction shots for this show. I guess for TMS you could argue they've always been there, so they're trying to make the show look like it's always looked. But like you say, this is a dancing show. We don't need shots of an audience looking amazed that someone can dance. They didn't have an audience for DWTS this last season and it was fine.
  24. It was nice seeing Paul Scheer and June Diane Raphael working off each other in this episode, even though they weren't playing a couple. (They're married in real life, in case you didn't know)
  25. I guess everyone stopped watching this show, lol
