Subject: That women's basketball sketch had to have been written by Norm, right
In reply to: HerbertMcHoover 's message, "Paul Reiser / Annie Lennox - March 18, 1995 (20.15)" on 14:11:41 04/10/17 Mon

>Press Conference: **1/2
>The breakout impression of the year, in a sense, has
>been Farley's Newt Gingrich. Farley impersonated
>Gingrich four times this season, including twice in
>the Jeff Daniels episode. Mark plays Candace Gingrich
>and there is a lot of awkward laughing and banter
>between the two in the sketch, which made this
>slightly better than it should have been.
>
>Monologue: DUD
>Why couldn't they get Helen to host again? Paul's
>stand-up was horrid. I miss these Q/A openers from
>last season during times like this. At least it would
>give a boost in airtime for featured players.
>
>The Daily Planet: DUD
>Once again, it is surreal to see Molly Shannon
>interact with this cast. The cast plays superheroes
>with lackluster superpowers and everybody is unable to
>locate Superman. This was overwhelmingly dull and
>uninspired. A waste of Norm in a rare sketch
>appearance for him this season as well.
>
>Road to the Final Four: **
>Kevin and Paul are hosts for a March Madness show. The
>duo does not care about the women's side of things,
>but read off the teleprompter to make it seem like
>they are really into their performances. A nice
>illusion, but it did not constitute a terrific sketch.
>Average at best.
>
>Weekend Update: ***
>Best jokes were: last words/OJ Simpson(!!!),
>Courtnova, Ritalin, Elizabeth Taylor, 5th OJ juror
>axed(!), teenage sex activity, kids/fake kids.
>
>The Bad Boys take over Weekend Update. Spade plays
>Jeff Foxworthy, while Sandler and Farley attempt new
>characters Frank Dippy and Hank Doodle in a
>Point/Counterpoint commentary that went nowhere.
>Spade's commentary was serviceable, but far from his
>most memorable work.
>
>Sparklebrite: **
>Another sales pitch sketch. Molly and Tim kiss all day
>and kiss all night.
>
>Daily Affirmation with Stuart Smalley: ***
>It's been a while since a Stuart Smalley sketch made
>it to air. With that said, Farley fit in much better
>with Franken here than several of the past few hosts
>who have done this sketch and there is no way Reiser
>would have been capable in doing the job Farley did
>here. Farley plays a drunk cameraman (which was
>already a fit) and excelled here.
>
>Aliens 4 - Mad About You Aliens: 1/2*
>A super brief crossover between Aliens and Mad About
>You. This had no chance to get going.
>
>Dating In The Nineties: ***1/2
>Paul does not get an opportunity to speak during the
>crossfire between the guests on Molly's talk show and
>they spread false information, such as the fact that
>Paul had only slept with two women. Thank you Norm.
>
>One Brother: DUD
>This was a sketch? Awful.
>
>O'Callahan & Son: DUD
>Plagiarized sketch that Jay Mohr "wrote" that was not
>even funny to begin with. Pathetic.
>
>Episode MVP: Annie Lennox.
>I want to give it to Norm, but I must acknowledge
>Annie's last SNL performances. She was lively and
>entertaining.
>
>Final Thoughts:
>Paul Reiser was his usual awful self and he received
>no help from Jay Mohr with poor performances down the
>stretch, including a plagiarized sketch. Another black
>eye this season.
