  1. Joe, Robert Redford did NOT play Carl Bernstein in the movie. Dustin Hoffman did. But I did enjoy the Bernstein interview!
  2. Can we live comment when it airs on the west coast?
  3. For me, the tears started when I saw the card that said February 28, 2020. I went back in my email to that date. In this NW corner of the country, we knew already how bad it was. There had already been deaths and 27 cases of COVID at a nursing home two miles from where I live. Our university was already getting ready to shut down, and people were buying massive amounts of shelf-stable groceries. We have not yet hit "NINETEEN MONTHS LATER" in terms of recovery. As I just noted, it hit this country of USA that week; the first known epicenter and cluster of cases in a nursing home

    A new weekend host for MSNBC: https://www.seattletimes.com/entertainment/former-biden-adviser-symone-sanders-to-host-msnbc-show/
  5. Gah, I watched this On Demand, where CBS does NOT allow viewers to jump forward, and the stream stopped 12 minutes before the end. When I refreshed, it started ALL OVER again, trying to make me watch the first 108 minutes all over again, with no possibility of jumping back to where it had stopped. Many thanks to the live chat for indicating what happened at the end! This was too tame to watch twice.

    This Is CNN

    Thanks! I got lucky, and saw the section where Amanda Gorman read her poem for the new year. Then I just needed something silly on while I cooked.

    Is there a thread for AC360 or the New Year's Eve show? Seems like there must be, but I've searched every way I can think.

    Completely agree—the same with weekend evenings. MSNBC really does not even try to pretend to cover need except on its own terms, not when the news is begging to be covered. How stale to want to know about the wildfires and to see a rerun of Joe and musicians.

    I would watch Al Franken every night, but no way would MSNBC choose him as a host for a show. The backlash would be destabilizing, and there are significant regular guests who might like Al just fine, but would not be on his show. Jonathan Capehart is always well prepared and does not let his personality dominate the actual news -- he does not have the big star power yet, but it would be a great shift to see some diversity in the nighttime lineup of hosts. And because I always salute Chris Jansing when she has done a big sprint of hosting -- I really enjoy her style and even keel.

    Was Heileman anti-cat???! 🐈 My theory about the Brian replacement is that the current crop of guests are not “it”, because they will want the new host to be a fresh presence.
  11. I liked that they closed with the sax player and pianist -- on that beautiful stage. Hanks was on the East Coast for the Bob Dole funeral, and spoke at the special commemoration for family and staff at the WWII memorial.
  12. Um, COVID can have the effect of wiping away weight. Sometimes you look better, but man, it was my least favorite way to lose weight ever. How did it not occur to me that this could/would happen? I was so surprised when Tom Hanks walked in. Would have loved to see his sketch. Loved how Hanks ("don't call me Hanks") and Fey were laying off each other. Oscar-level fake laughter from Tom. Steve Martin, Tom Hanks, Tina Fey, Paul Rudd, Eddie Murphy -- this is a great gift -- thank you, SNL, and PLEASE stay well.
  13. Funny, I was just thinking of that as the "11th Hour" went through its first phase of transition. I wonder if Rachel would find that as funny these days? And there was always that pause: "And now, it's time to go..................to PRISON!"
  14. I am loving the Christmas sketches -- refrigerator cards and especially the "Rear Window" communications that took so many dark turns for a Christmas dinner invite. And then became an advert for "NextDoor" -- which is where the skeevy underside of so many neighborhoods is found. Next week with Paul Rudd is new -- are we getting *two* Christmas episodes this year?!
