"I'm sorry, I'm not following."

 

Neither am I, White Dude Who Looks Like Reginald On GH.  And like him, I bailed around the 1:30 mark.

 

Seriously, WTF was that!?

That was...interesting, both of them. The performances were funny but yeah, I'm so confused as to the stories they were trying to tell. Why two Dixie Carters? Why Alexis and Dominique as men working in a coal mine? I'm so confused.

Apparently, they cut a DYNASTY Dominique/Alexis spoof:

 

Which made no sense either.  Seriously, that was some truly awful writing on display.

 

In fact, was it really writing, or was it just SNL blowing LGBTQ dog-whistles?

on SNL‘s next live show — slated for March 28 — due to the coronavirus pandemic. John Krasinski, whose film Quiet Place 2 has been delayed until later this year, was scheduled to serve as host alongside musical guest Dua Lipa.

SNL is currently 16 episodes into its 21-episode 45th season. Beyond the scrapped March 28 outing, NBC is taking a wait-and-see approach with regard to the remaining five shows.

I think it's 15 episodes in. 

 

I know a lot of people hate SNL these days or see it as the enemy, or at best an old dying sign of gluttony, and I get that (in some cases), but it's still one of the few things I can sort of enjoy these days. I hope they may at least be able to finish out the season. Then again if it gets as bad as we're hearing that will be the least of our worries.

I'm with you. I still enjoy SNL and always stick with it, through its ups and downs.

Definitely. She's better than a number of people paid to rap these days...

 

Some of the cast have been entertaining fans on their social media through all this quarantining. Heidi Gardner and Ego Nwodim were doing an Instagram Live tonight but I wasn't able to see it - apparently you can only watch on a Smartphone, at the time it's happening.

If you go to Gardner's insta, you click on her little photo and it will ask you if you want to see her stories or the live video.  It is only up for so long unless she saves it.

Jan Hooks would have been 63 yesterday. Robert Smigel, longtime writer and occasional onscreen player, wrote a lovely series of tweets about her, and also managed to get a Jan sketch he thought highly of unblocked in the US. Here it is. 

 

 

 

In other news, the show is doing another 'at home' episode this weekend.

@DramatistDreamer that was such a lovely little clip - the melancholy of it reminded me of what SNL used to do many years ago. I don't miss a lot of the material of those years, but I do miss that aspect. I hope they will bring more back. 

 

If any of you want to see Fred Willard's 1978 episode, it is repeating tonight at 10 EST. Sadly only the 60 minute edit, but there are some good sketches I am hoping will show up.
