Michaela Watkins was on last night's Comedy Bang! Bang! -- It looks like Aidy Bryant is in next week's episode, 07:57:49 08/17/13 Sat
The show up until now hasn't been quite as good as the first season, but last night's episode with Jason Mantzoukas as the vampire chef was pretty funny. Watkins played her typical boozy character.
They suggest Mulaney for WU anchor, Lauren Lapkus who has been pretty funny on Comedy Bang!Bang! and Improv4Humans, Baron Vaughn who is an actually funny black comedian (sorry, Finesse Mitchell, Dean Edwards, and Kenan Thompson), and a couple of female black cast members which the show probably does need one of. Also Maria Bamford as their "person too famous to be in the SNL cast", who I didn't think of but she would be great for sure.
NBC is developing a new sitcom to be executive produced by Tina Fey and her 30 Rock co-showrunner Robert Carlock. The untitled project was written by Colleen McGuinness, another 30 Rock writer/producer, and it's a workplace show that follows a young woman who finds a new home and family on Fire Island while trying to reconnect with her dad. Targeted for the 2014-2015 TV season, the show is the first project for Fey's production company Little Stranger since she signed a four-year deal with Universal TV last year. There's no word at this point on whether Tina Fey would act in the hypothetical show or not.
Clear History on HBO -- ?, 16:38:29 08/12/13 Mon
Larry David's new HBO movie co-starring Bill Hader and JB Smoove aired last night. Did anyone get to see it? How was it? I'm without HBO right now, but its gotta be funny if its basically a movie version of CYE.
Remember when Amy Adams hosted and they made a big deal out of -- the fact that she looks like Kristen Wiig, 10:50:23 08/13/13 Tue
Well, she looks a lot like Wiig in this pic, they are even kind of built the same. Maybe Adams should host again, she did a pretty good job last time.
LOL, if this isn't proof that Adomian needs to be on SNL -- then I don't know what is, 16:27:05 08/09/13 Fri
Here he is on last night's Children's Hospital, doing impressions of Madonna, Rihanna, Freddy Mercury, Kate Upton, and best of all, Louis CK...heh
SNL unveils next cast for 2013-2014 season -- -, 12:37:00 08/07/13 Wed
Similar to the "ringers" who came in to save the show during the '84-'85 season, the new cast will be a mixture of former cast members and other celebrities who have already achieved success in their chosen field.
The new cast is:
and HOWIE MANDEL!!!!!
Featuring JUSTIN BIEBER and guest appearances by KRISTEN WIIG
In a statement, Lorne Michaels said "We feel confident that this new cast is what we need to lead SNL into the next decade and beyond. At the very least, we'll really piss off the denizens of the Voy message board!"

"Plate Boy and Cup Boy" sketch with Jimmy Fallon and Horatio Sanz -- -, 11:04:02 08/01/13 Thu
Jake Fogelnest put this sketch in his Youtube playlist for his "Fogelnest Files" podcast interview with Fallon which dropped today.
It's a cut sketch and it's almost dumber than the infamous "Gary's Fish Tanks" sketch, if that's possible.
OT: New sketch show on MTV -- -, 10:15:12 07/27/13 Sat
This Sunday at 9, MTV is premiering four back-to-back episodes of a brand new sketch show called Hey Girl. The show is head written by Julie Klausner (How Was Your Week podcast) and directed by Michael Showalter from the State and Stella.
It is a sketch show with an all female cast, and I recognize some of the names as people who have auditioned for SNL before: Sara Schaefer, Shelby Fero, JC Coccoli, Sasheer Zamata, Ali Wong, Emily Axford, Esther Povitsky, Laura Willcox, and more. Might be worth checking out.
Are they just referring to Jason/Bill/Fred (and Seth soon) leaving or do you think we'll actually see something not seen since 95-96? I would actually kinda love that, the show really needs some long overdue housecleaning and an almost all new cast would really renew my interest in the show.
Colin Jost on John Oliver's New York Stand Up Show -- Casey Killingsworth, 05:47:29 07/27/13 Sat
I don't know if any of you guys saw this, but from his stand up I would characterize him as a cross between Seth Meyers and John Mulaney. I don't mean that as an insult or anything. While he wasn't exactly laugh out loud funny, he had some clever enough material. Still, he's preferable to watching Seth even if they're almost on the same level of bland humor.
Also, he told some jokes about getting into fights in relationships. For his sake, I would hope they weren't totally based on his supposed relationship with Nassim Pedrad. It would be a shame to hear that working together ruined their relationship or something.
what's the source for james adomian being bitter about snl? -- interview or rumor?, 15:57:38 07/26/13 Fri
Never heard James Adomian talk about snl, interesting to hear this. If something did happen years ago, what is it and why is it on him? But if Bill Hader mentioned him on howard stern that must mean they are cool right?

Does Anyone Think that We'll be Seeing 'Best of Bill Hader' and 'Best of Jason Sudeikis' DVDs -- Anytime Soon?, 19:36:25 07/26/13 Fri
I mean, how long has it been that new SNL DVDs were released? I mean, we haven't even seen a 'Best of Kristen Wiig' DVD or a 'Best of Andy Samberg' one as well.
Imean, there is so much materialfor all these DVDs. Why can't Lorne Michaels and NBC release new SNL DVDs? Surely there is money to be made from these possible releases. Plus, I'm sure these discs would be high in demand.
Does anyone think we'll be seeing any new DNL DVDs in the near future?
He reveals this in an interview with David Letterman which will air tonight on CBS.
This pretty much throws out the window the idea that they're not going to hire any new people for next season, doesn't it? There's pretty much no way they're going to try to go into next season with a core cast of 4 men (one of whom is presumably Kenan who should be leaving also anyway)
I predict they will hire at least 2, maybe 3 new male cast members. I guess the biggest infusion of new people since '95-'96. The show will look very different next season, that's for sure.
First, Jenny Slate was on Drunk History telling the story of the invention of Coca Cola w/Hader as the inventor. Later on, Nealon played a KKK Grand Dragon in the story of how Stetson Kennedy took them down from the inside. I would highly recommend checking that episode out as Hader and Slate are brilliantly funny in it.
Then, Casey Wilson was on the Jeselnik Offensive w/her "Happy Endings" co-star Adam Pally. For some reason, I couldn't help but mentally compare her guest appearance to Abby Elliot's. Wilson was much better at contributing actual jokes than Elliot, but Wilson's jokes were more cute than dark. They seemed like a better fit on a Leno/Letterman/Conan/Ferguson appearance and didn't quite fit well enough with Jeselnik's gallows humor sensibilities.
Adam Pally was quite funny. He makes me think I should check out "Happy Endings" just to see what I might be missing.
He also talks about how Tim Robinson is a favorite of everybody on the show and always has great sketches at read-through on Wednesday, but Lorne is "holding him back" for some stupid reason. Let's hope he gets more of a chance on the show next season.
Her first post-Bridesmaids movie is getting shitty reviews. I can see her easily going the way of Mike Myers if she keeps making bomb after bomb. How long until her equivalent of The Love Guru comes out? She's been hyped up by Lorne and the media so much over the years, I can see people getting sick of her fast if she keeps doing turkeys like this one. I agree with one review that said so far she's kinda suffering from one-trick-pony syndrome and just playing her Bridesmaids character in everything shes done since.
