  1. Tonight's Vintage is...another season 45 episode, Phoebe Waller-Bridge/Taylor Swift. (considering that Olivia Rodrigo is seen by some as a younger Taylor Swift, I guess there is some synergy) After that Vintage is on hiatus for at least a few weeks
  2. Jost made a joke about how they can't blame Tesla/Elon for China's rocket blowing up. And now he is supposedly dating Olivia Munn. The whole thing is a reminder to me I don't know these celebrities and I need to stop thinking their lives are what they tell us they are. From what he said in his recent return to standup, he's had problems for a while, which takes a toll on any marriage - I'm just sorry this all had to be a public mess. (Sorry, I know this is not on topic anymore)
  3. Peacock is going to be releasing a documentary on the legendary Jim Downey. https://collider.com/snl-jim-downey-documentary-peacock/
  4. Ratings for the Elon Musk episode: https://deadline.com/2021/05/saturday-night-live-ratings-elon-musk-wario-chad-on-mars-1234752544/ A contingent of Elon Musk’s legions of fans tuned in to watch the hugely popular — and controversial — billionaire tech inventor and entrepreneur make his debut as host of Saturday Night Live. Last night’s telecast, hosted by Musk with musical guest Miley Cyrus, drew a 4.7 household Live+Same Day rating in the 44 metered local markets and a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating in the 25 markets with local people meters. That was up sharply from the most recent
  5. A list of all the cast (past and present) appearing on talk shows this week.
  6. I don't really like it, but I think if she stopped forcing the huskiness and 'edge' so much there would be a nice tone somewhere. "Light of a Clear Blue Morning" is such a beautiful song, but more than once I wanted her to just try to feel the song and not get so caught up in a persona. She clearly thinks a lot of Dolly Parton - I wish she would stop and listen to the purity and simplicity of Dolly's voice and how Dolly lives her lyrics, and try to learn from that.
  7. Of the people who were most openly critical about Elon Musk, Aidy appeared solely in the cold open, having no interaction with him, while Andrew mostly appeared in small pre-tape roles that had little interaction with him, while Bowen was in one pre-tape and one live sketch. CO: Great Dolly song choice. The cuts between Miley and the moms/cast didn't work, but the latter was equal parts funny, awkward, and moving, as always. The Redds had my favorite joke, but Cecily's moving moment with her mom was the perfect close. Best use of a group LFNY. The bit where the audience barely reacted to
  8. Tonight's Vintage is Adam Driver/Halsey, which is a unique definition of the term vintage.
  9. Sorry - I meant for the finale. I missed part of the sentence.
  10. The first Mad TV alum to host SNL. (he is also sharing a show with Cecily now - so we will probably get some teamups here). Anya Taylor Joy is the first completely-new-to-SNL finale host since 2007! (Zach Braff) If any cast are leaving, having a low-key host would also allow them to take the spotlight. Hopefully these two episodes will give a worthwhile close to the season. At least it's something to look forward to.
  11. Interview with Simpsons writer John Swartzwelder, who also talks about his time writing SNL (85-86). https://www.newyorker.com/culture/the-new-yorker-interview/john-swartzwelder-sage-of-the-simpsons
  12. Publicity and ratings. NBC probably came up with the idea, but Lorne has always been fine with "controversial" hosts to try to get interest, especially during end-of-an-era seasons.
