Not into bro country, but whatever.
A bunch of nobodies without Clarence Clemons.
Because we could all use some Palau id.

Because NBC's contract with the Teamsters Local 817 requires that SNL keeps six push-pin pushers on staff, so you might as well do something with them.

/With an addendum that 50% of them get overtime opportunities.

Please, please, SNL, give us the full Trump Downfall re-enactment as a cold open!!!!

I am conflicted however... would it be best to do it all in pure German, with no subtitles, so it can be used as a meme from this point forward, or play it straight in English, because Trump, despite having a Hitler/Nazi fetish has never been capable of learning the actual German language?

Wiig may be the most overrated SNL cast member ever. Most of her recurring characters were not funny (Target Lady, Gilly, Kat-where she and Armisen made up songs on Weekend Update, Judy Grimes). I did like Dooneese on the Lawrence Welk show, but that was more about the hands than her. And I'll admit Mindy Grayson on Password Plus always made me laugh. But mostly it was tired and boring.

I am quite fond of Kristen however, technically speaking, it had nothing to do with her "total humor quotient", if you catch my drift and I think you do.

Actually, I thought she was medium funny here and there but the little hands thing made my belly turn upside down and not in a good way.

Kristin Wiig reminds me of Cheri Oteri when she was on there. Always trying too hard and just plain annoying. I know who Jason Bateman and BS and E St. are, but no idea on the rest.

Kinda hoping Morgan Wallen finds some way to poke fun at himself for his previous lapse in judgment.

IgG4: Why do they use push pins with post it notes?


Short answer: They are index cards.

Long answer: This is a scripting technique used by TV then film that dates back to the 1950's, really just a simple project management technique, where you could re-arrange acts on a cork board very easily. Also used by some writers to track block elements or ideas. There is video of Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel using this technique as they work through a script.

I've always wanted to see a modern recreation shot-by-shot in the Oval Office, complete with hesitant reactions, crying, and Sharpies thrown angrily on the desk.

Wait, how the hell did I miss that. I thought they were just talking about a new album, not actually done with one. On one hand, botched that. On the other hand, cool.

Being a current member of SNL now doesn't get you nearly what it used to.  For one thing, they keep bringing back past cast members to take serious roles, even reoccurring characters.  And the other thing that used to let a cast member stand out from the rest, playing the President, is denied them -- the current President, the President-Elect, and the Vice President-Elect are being played by guest stars.

I mean, I guess there are worse problems to have, but it's more possible than ever to be on SNL but leave the cast as unknown as you were going in.
 
2020-11-25 4:07:24 PM  
well...that frees up a couple of my evenings next month to watch anything else.

/not a fan of Wiig. she has yet to make me laugh in anything I've seen her in. at best she's gotten some eyerolls for doing "comedy" on par most 5 year olds trying to get attention at an adult dinner party.

IPAs are usually pretty high in alcohol already.  Not sure I could handle two of them that late at night, unless they're brewed specifically as session beers.

She's a villain in Wonder Woman 1984, which is releasing on HBO Max at about that time.

I can't believe I'm saying this in 2020 but I hope they do a Ricky Schroder sketch in the Bateman show.

really want to know?

Back in the mid 70's when the show was first being put together, Lorne did it this way. It was easy to move the cards around without re-writing them. They did with this with each internal sketch for each program. They constantly moved things around to see what fit better with other sketches and whatnot. Even today it's not uncommon for them to move the skits while the show is being performed live.

Wow, you haven't watched much SNL. There were a bunch of cast members who were absolutely terrible, and far worse than Wiig. You had Victoria Jackson, Jim Breuer, Gilbert Gottfried, Jay Mohr, Randy Quaid, and Joe muthafarking Piscopo (along with a lot of others) to choose from, right off the top of the list. And that's not even really digging into most of the cast members from the 80's, notably the entirety of the 1985-1986 season, which sucked so bad it almost got the show cancelled.

I'm gonna say it. Very few female comedians are truly funny. There are a couple, but not many.

Not sure what The Daily Show has to do with anything, and sorry for using words. I'm sure it's hard for you. You might be one of those recent losers, but at least you aren't a misogynist or bigot.

Oh, I spoke too soon. I guess you see yourself as "edgy" - the word "caricature" probably has too many syllables for your taste.

And they should.  Wiig is super funny, and came closer to Winnipeg an Oscar than any SNL alum.  She was second only to Bill Hader during their run...and Hader is in my top five, *easy*.
