  1. Catching up with '70s-era writer and featured player Alan Zweibel. https://www.wgrz.com/article/entertainment/television/programs/most-buffalo/snl-alum-alan-zweibel-visits-buffalo-to-mentor-acting-students/71-77379905-f9c8-459c-b8b1-9512252c4d16 Pete Davidson will have a guest spot on The Rookie. https://tvline.com/2020/02/20/pete-davidson-snl-nathan-fillion-brother-the-rookie/
  2. Another test thread.
  3. Adding an in-mod notice.
  4. Tim Meadows on Kevin Nealon's hiking show.
  5. Sy Sperling, founder of Hair Club for Men, passed away. https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/20/us/sy-sperling-hair-club-for-men-dies/index.html The only reason I'm mentioning it here is because there was a strange period in the mid-90s where Lorne decided to bring in various infomercial or pop culture names for cameo appearances. Sperling must have been liked backstage because he had a fair amount to do compared to most of these appearances - he had a lengthy speaking part in the monologue and appeared near the end of another sketch too. https://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/monologue-kelsey-grammer-wears-a-wig/2868158 https://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/yankee-stadium-opening-day/n10571 If you can't watch those, here's a description and screen captures: https://www.onesnladay.com/2019/09/13/april-9-1994-kelsey-grammer-dwight-yoakham-s19-e17/
  6. Apparently Colin suggests in his upcoming memoir that he may leave post-election, to try new things. https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/colin-jost-memoir-saturday-night-live-departure-1203507648/
  7. Another Pete Davidson movie (this one on Hulu). Kenan is co-hosting the WHCD. https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/white-house-correspondents-dinner-kenan-thompson-hasan-minaj-1203506197/

  9. Linking to other test thread
  10. Kenan is the new spokesman for Universal Parks and Resorts. Leslie will be on the premiere of Drag Race. (she was also on Project Runway yesterday)
  11. Will Ferrell on Colbert (I chose this clip because they talk a little about a sketch they wrote with Mark McKinney).
  12. Abby Elliott's new sitcom Indebted is airing on NBC (the show also features Beck Bennett's wife, Jessy Hodges). Here's a brief clip of Abby on the Kelly Clarkson Show. Trailer for Pete Davidson's new standup special, debuting on Netflix on February 25th. https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/pete-davidson-alive-from-new-york-netflix-special-watch-1203502014/ Rob Schneider, David Spade and Kevin Nealon will be at the Lucille Ball Comedy Festival in August. http://www.bradfordera.com/news/local/jeff-foxworthy-and-snl-legends-to-perform-at-lucille-ball/article_ecf8d496-440b-578f-8e77-e15a594f3b38.html
  13. An interview with a woman responsible for the dress Cecily wore in the recent RuPaul episode. (it asks you to whitelist) https://bismarcktribune.com/news/local/mandan/mandan-woman-s-s-era-outfit-appears-in-snl-skit/article_8f10f70b-e796-588d-98ab-56e3407960af.html
  14. Another cut for time piece. Probably one of the strangest things I've seen on the show in a good number of years. I can see why it was cut, although I enjoyed the performances and I got some cheap laughs (mainly at "He has your father's penis." "Wait...what?")
  15. Cecily confirms the Designing Women connection here. I haven't really been able to find a longer list of cut sketches but did see this: In other news, the credits mentioned that Jim Downey was one of the writers for Update. Downey has written for SNL off and on from just about the earliest days, headwriting in the mid-90s, going on to write for Update and numerous political sketches; he also made a number of oncamera appearances (he was even a featured player in 79-80). He hasn't been involved with the show for 5-6 years. I thought Update seemed tougher and funnier this episode - I assume he is one of the reasons why.
