  1. Tom Schiller talks about his career, including his years at SNL and the films he made with Gilda Radner and John Belushi. https://www.vulture.com/2020/07/snl-tom-schiller-interview.html
  2. Che first mentioned the sketch show back in early March, which was when the stories also began about Jost wanting to leave and Che saying he'd go when Jost went. I guess that's going to remain the case - Colin has since expressed some hesitancy about leaving but imagining him without Che would be odd and they've also never had an Update person go through that many different iterations (usually it's going from solo to co-anchor or going from having a co-anchor to going solo). I keep thinking they both might do one last season and then leave.
  3. There are a ton of NYC-based performers and also various friends/alum of the show who would probably host without having anything to promote (like Mulaney), but you're right. It may not be worth the trouble. Colin Jost had an interview today talking about how much he would prefer to go back if they could. If this wasn't an election year, then I'd say they might wait until even November, December, or January, but election years are often bread and butter for SNL so I'm not sure they would.
  4. Fallon has started his shows back in studio, but no audience, remote guests, and a bare bones crew and band. It's a bit odd. I wonder if Lorne is trying to see how it goes - maybe the sketches will still be remote but the host and the musical guest will be on the stage?
  5. Steven Castillo, one of the writers, tweeted this a few days ago: This doesn't have to be about SNL (he could have a comedy special, his own show, or could just be joking), but if, say, Kyle and Beck are leaving (and by the end of last season Kyle did seem to be shifting back to his old roots), hiring someone inhouse would help save them time (and he'd probably be pretty good if given the chance). Turns out it wasn't about SNL.
  6. From recent interviews, the pandemic and filming at-home episodes has made Aidy and Colin more reluctant about leaving.
  7. It was the cooking show with Big Papi in the second at home.
  8. Vintage (or "vintage") airings: This Saturday - Ryan Gosling/Jay Z (season 43) Next Saturday - Anne Hathaway/The Killers (season 34)
  9. Charney was a very popular leading man on Another World and Somerset. It's a shame most of his work is lost to time and network junking. Why am I not surprised the Eckert family all rushed out and bought Pintos? pannoni4 on the Internet Archives has uploaded 3 June 1989 and 3 July 1992 episodes.
  10. Cecily Strong and Alex Moffat are interviewed as part of this Second City interview from 2010. Hollywood Reporter's recent comedy roundtable, including Kenan Thompson. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/being-funny-now-is-kind-duty-ricky-gervais-ramy-youssef-kenan-thompson-kumail-nanjiani-dan-levy-come-1301166 Chris Redd talks about his efforts to help with fundraising for protests. https://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/tv/ct-mov-chris-redd-covid-19-protest-relief-fund-0626-20200624-zjzbwhjf7rfv3fjwbcg3efqx2m-story.html
  11. Charlie Daniels, musical guest in April 1982 with Robert Culp. https://tasteofcountry.com/charlie-daniels-dead/ https://www.bendouwsma.com/blog/2011/02/17/classic-snl-review-april-24-1982-robert-culp-the-charlie-daniels-band-s07e18
  12. I agree the kids were the best part. Mike was alright but Betty or Will Ferrell probably would have been better; Jason as always added some everyday sleazy charm. The awkwardness around not wanting to be negative about Betty was palpable, and understandable. Having her in any sketch about killing an animal (even a unicorn...) was a rocky road; it's a credit to her she went ahead with the sketch anyway. (there are also two videos where Jason and Mike talk with Seth) Another recent Jason interview:
  13. Mike O'Brien and Jason Sudeikis will be on Seth tonight for the return of Second Chance Theatre.
  14. Tonight's Vintage is Jamie Foxx/Ne-Yo from season 38. Next week is Natalie Portman/Fall Out Boy from season 31.
  15. Stefon appears in the 2008 Ben Affleck episode. They are brothers and are pitching a film idea to executives. He doesn't appear again for a few years until he pops up on Update, where he is much better received.
