Leslie Jones was on Seth's show last night (they talk about politics so I'm not sure the video can be linked here). 

In Leslie's most recent Supermarket Sweep episode, she told a contestant named Cecily that Cecily was one of her favorite names. Cecily Strong mentioned on Instagram that Leslie had told her about it before the episode aired.

This would be a backwards move for John at any other time, but I imagine now he'll take work wherever he can get it. It's a steady paycheck in an otherwise uncertain world.

This isn't anything against Seth's show, he's my favorite of the current network late night hosts and I'm excited to see what John brings to the table, but it would be a strange thing for an accomplished stand-up like John to do during non-corona times.

Seth's show is the main one I enjoy in late night, but I agree it's a step backward - it was a very sobering moment for me because it reinforced just how uncertain things must be if even someone in Mulaney's position is having to reorient that way. It does make more clear why a few former SNL writers who have gone on to better things popped back into the credits this season. I wonder if John may as well.

New Colin Quinn comedy special (also featuring current SNL writer Sam Jay).

Jason Sudeikis talks to Morning Joe - this charity event also features Will Forte and Seth Meyers.

I’ve now seen Wonder Woman 1984, and although I don’t think that it is a good movie overall (sadly), I think Kristen Wiig was very good in it (working from a pretty trite and unfocused script for her character).  I thought she actually did better than Pedro Pascal with the material that they were given.  I’m happy for her that she continues to pull in high-profile movie projects.

I agree with this completely. I think she was one of the very best things about the movie. She also did very well in  her fight/action scenes, which was something new for her. And even though the comedy is there, I thought she was chilling in a few places like when she told a guy to "mind his business."

I forgot to mention yesterday that Cheri Oteri reprised her turn as Baba Wawa on CNN's New Year's Eve special.

(I know some last year found that impression to be in poor taste so I won't share the Twitter video, but it's on there if you want to see it)

I knew absolutely nothing about Kenan’s new show before clicking “play” on that 20-second promo, @Pete Martell (just hadn’t bothered to follow any news on it) and so I was wondering what Don Johnson’s character was to Kenan to refer to “we were having a break-in” (roommate, father to biracial Kenan, employee, etc.), so I looked up the premise.  Lol, how is this show not 2020s Full House?   Talk show host Kenan struggles to raise his daughters after his wife’s death with help from two male family members (father-in-law and brother).  Sounds and looks pretty derivative, but hopefully I’m wrong.  I wish Kenan the best, as he seems like a good egg.
