I was maybe being a bit facetious w/ Joan Cusack but srsly I thought Billy Madison was a lot bigger than $26m at the box office!

that's still quite a good number for the early '90s

Nhex, Tuesday, 29 May 2012 03:41 (five years ago) Permalink

Both Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore were HUGE on home video.

there are few people who i begrudge for their success more than adam sandler, it's really appalling how much of a money factory his shitty movies are

Perrin article on the little-remembered The New Show, a Lorne Michaels primetime sketch-show flop in 1984. Of the clips, I particularly like John Candy as Rod Serling's son.

(I saw some eps of The New Show, but really didn't remember any sketches except the opening episode's parody of the "Billie Jean" video by Steve Martin.)

The entire series of The New Show is available for download at that website with the organ in its name.

I hope this story is true. SNL could really use a new head writer.

J0rdan S., Thursday, 5 July 2012 20:52 (five years ago) Permalink

that would be a good move for seth tho imo. all the women in my family over the age of 45 love him.

J0rdan S., Thursday, 5 July 2012 20:52 (five years ago) Permalink

they should ditch Kelly and have "Live! with Seth, Michael and Josh"

I see you, Pineapple Teef (DJP), Thursday, 5 July 2012 20:53 (five years ago) Permalink

interviews would consist of Seth being a snarky dick and Josh singing at guests, only for them both to be tackled by Michael

I see you, Pineapple Teef (DJP), Thursday, 5 July 2012 20:54 (five years ago) Permalink

Would watch.

RIP Tom and thanks for Coneheads, Julia Child and more

curmudgeon, Friday, 20 July 2012 17:25 (five years ago) Permalink

The idea for the “Coneheads” came after a drug-fueled vacation to Easter Island with Dan Aykroyd, where Mr. Davis hallucinated that his own forehead had grown 10 inches

jjjdoom (Whiney G. Weingarten), Thursday, 30 August 2012 12:30 (five years ago) Permalink

that being the episode w/ Frank Ocean as musical guest seems like not the best pairing

some dude, Thursday, 30 August 2012 12:37 (five years ago) Permalink

why?

jjjdoom (Whiney G. Weingarten), Thursday, 30 August 2012 12:41 (five years ago) Permalink

Raymond Cummings, Sunday, 2 September 2012 03:47 (five years ago) Permalink

a thing at the avclub on the legendary doumanian season tipped me to this clip i'd never seen before from the first ebersol era episode. not hilarious but interesting to anyone interested in this show i think - http://www.hulu.com/watch/271485

balls, Wednesday, 5 September 2012 20:39 (five years ago) Permalink

I hate to pigeonhole, but I'm thinking the Aidy girl was brought in because Melissa McCarthy's hosting gig went over so well. Also, look for some Adele sketches.

I don't have a read on the Tim guy yet.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 7 September 2012 23:28 (five years ago) Permalink

yeah that's kind of a shitty thing to say

drag-∞n (some dude), Friday, 7 September 2012 23:32 (five years ago) Permalink

Let me clarify—through the eyes of Lorne Michaels, that's why Aidy was brought in and I fully expect SNL to exploit her talent in those areas because that's exactly what SNL does.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 7 September 2012 23:35 (five years ago) Permalink

i saw her in her second city show a few months ago and she was funny, definitely the crowd favorite. i'm sure she gets the melissa mccarthy stuff a bunch now but she was just good, def had the biggest star power of anyone in that show.

like... it's definitely weird, like, she gets laughs because a lot of people are just like "LOL a fat person! doing something!" but that's a general problem not connected to her specifically (mccarthy def traded on that in 'bridesmaids'). but bryant has a lot of talent.

young money color me badd (J0rdan S.), Saturday, 8 September 2012 00:30 (five years ago) Permalink

I agree that it's odd (albeit awesome) that Lorne hired Aidy (particularly if, for example, the Casey Wilson weight rumors were to be believed). But she has been a Second City main stager for a while now, so her getting hired kinda makes more sense on that level than, say, Vanessa Bayer (who arguably wasn't nearly as high profile in the scene).

This Whole Fridge Is Full Of (Old Lunch), Saturday, 8 September 2012 03:18 (five years ago) Permalink

Hm, I'm pretty sure I saw Robinson at Second City a year ago (w/La Lechera!), but can't remember him.
