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.

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.

Dennis Perrin on the late Tom Davis and Nelson Lyon (another SNL writer, and Warholian):

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

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

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 -

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.

Sandy Denny Real Estate (jaymc), Saturday, 8 September 2012 06:02 (five years ago) Permalink

The music network here plays reruns during the week. This morning, they had the sketch from '08 where Ferrell/Bush was in the Oval Office, ready to endorse McCain, and Fey/Palin walks in. I don't think you can say this enough: Fey's Palin was something beyond genius. "John and I have just been out travellin' around this great country of ours, talkin' about change and energy independence and William Ayers." The way she says it, the way they're all just words divorced from any meaning--she doesn't know what any of it means, she's just overjoyed to be there. Fey was so integral to why that election was so memorable.

clemenza, Sunday, 9 September 2012 17:59 (five years ago) Permalink

it's a shame that they're seemingly never going to do a Tina Fey best-of DVD/special just because it would have to be at least 50% Weekend Update, but they could probably pad it out pretty well with some of those Palin sketches. even the times she's hosted since '08 have had some pretty memorable sketches.

...and "Old! French! Whore!" (which she once said was her favorite sketch as a writer)
