Weekend Update: Olya Povlatsky
Olya Povlatsky/Emma Stone 2016, assuming Olya’s finished watching Full House by then.
Weekend Update: Leslie Jones
Just in case you were worried about the future of Brooks Whelan, well, you’re not, because no one’s worried about his future on SNL; he doesn’t have one. When the show starts plucking writers out of their Lorne Michaels-guarded dungeon (I’m assuming) for Weekend Update segments, it’s probably not a good sign for certain new members of the cast. It’s especially cause for concern to the Whelans of the world when the writers are as talented and spirited as Leslie Jones, who performed an energetic stand-up bit about slavery, minus the whole standing up part. I wouldn’t be disappointed to see her again.
Weekend Update: Jebediah Atkinson
I support more Weekend Update guests, and less Colin Jost.
Sketches where the host has to intentionally flop usually don’t go over well (think back to Drake’s Indiana Jones experience), but not every host is as naturally nervous-seeming as Garfield. You really believe that he’d be the type of idiot who professes his love for the bride at her wedding in front of his wife and kids. Then again, his wife might one day be Emma Stone, so if he ever embarrasses her like that, Garfield’s gonna be slurping lasagna through a straw.
Coldplay, “A Sky Full of Stars”
“A Sky Full of Stars”: a Coldplay song title, or the MOST Coldplay song title?
