Author: "The Last Girlfriend on Earth"
Subject: The New Boyfriend Talk Show was written by Simon Rich and was based on an essay from his book

...which is the book that was eventually (sorta) turned into Man Seeking Woman (a couple of the other comedic essays in the book were turned into story lines on the show, like when a condom starts talking to Jay Baruchel's character)

The essay as I remember it is written in a diary form, where the kid is writing about how excited he is to meet all his mom's new boyfriends (including eventually an entire hockey team). It is a very funny premise-based sketch the type of which they don't do as much on the show anymore.

Soeaking of that, the sketch with Denzel working at the department store makes me wonder why they haven't tried something like that with Melissa yet. Try to build a sketch around one of her impressions, like Jennifer Lopez or Gwen Stefani or Owen Wilson. Right now they have used her impressions in 2 sketches, the bedroom sketch with Aziz (probably the best one) and the recording booth studio sketch where she had to share screen time with several other people. She really needs some kind of showcase sketch to cement her in people's minds as "the impressionist" on SNL.
