Author: was " I hate that new guy who just yells all the time" LOL
Subject: This is just a personal remembrance,but after the Get Off The Shed sketch,I believe my dad's comment
In reply to: HerbertMcHoover 's message, "Some of my thoughts and things I wrote down from the SNL boards." on 09:13:24 08/15/17 Tue

>HEMINGWAY:
>• On the old board, someone said that JLD was
>originally booked as host, but then dropped out. Also,
>Prince was scheduled to be musical guest, but then
>became known as "The Artist Formerly Booked on the
>Show But Then Flaked on Us". With that said, Hemingway
>was fine (she even made an appearance during Chase's
>show the next week...) and Blues Traveler was really
>solid.
>
>• I always liked how Will Ferrell was the first
>person to appear on the "new SNL". Immediately, you
>can tell that they were trying to push him as the
>alpha. Aside from being the first to appear in the
>cold open, he led sketches like Get Off the Shed! and
>Getting Off The Phone.
>
>• During the monologue, one of the women that gets
>kissed is Beth McCarthy Miller, in her first episode
>as director. SNL Archives lists this as her only
>appearance on the show during her decade as director.
>
>• Nancy Walls made an Update commentary about head
>shaking news and was just very slightly better than
>Laura Kightlinger, for the simple fact that she was
>not Laura Kightlinger. I always thought that if Sarah
>returned for season 20, she would have been perfect to
>play off Norm. You see the two in interviews and the
>YouTube Award Show today and it's just great.
>
>• I get SNL wanted to retain some stars, but David
>Spade? He is the king at phoning it in and half-assing
>performances during a season where everyone did it and
>nearly everyone got fired. There are a few noteworthy
>Spade in America segments, but unless it's Hollywood
>Minute, he had a difficult time making those
>memorable.
>
>CHASE:
>• Loved when Chase fell down during Braveheart
>sketch and did the musical guest introduction from the
>ground. I always enjoy when SNL breaks format for that
>type of stuff.
>
>• They were actually still getting Father Guido
>Sarducci to do spots on Update. Even after he was gone
>from the cast, he seemed to do a spot for every Update
>anchor until this appearance. He did one for Nealon,
>Norm, and that was it. After Novello's first time as a
>cast member on the show, I felt like there was a drop
>in quality for the character.
>
>• Tim Meadows and Chevy Chase worked frequently
>together in this episode. Back in season 17 (the last
>time Chase hosted before this season), Chase spoke to
>Tim about his lack of airtime when Tim was upset.
