    It's a fantastic book - I highly recommend it for anyone who is an SNL fan. I actually loaned my copy to a friend several months ago, and she gave it back after reading 50 or so pages. She said she liked it so much she wanted her own copy.

    I'm really going to miss Drunk Uncle and secondhand news correspondent Anthony Crispino. Hope he makes a few guest appearances.

    I used to watch Kenan Thompson on Nick when I was a teenager. He is truly versatile. He holds the SNL record for most impersonations at 122, beating the previous record, of 107, held by Darrel Hammond. Thompson has been a cast member on SNL for fourteen seasons, breaking the record for the longest-serving African-American cast member previously held by Tim Meadows, who stayed on the show for ten seasons. Thompson became the most senior cast member in the 2013-14 season, following the departure of Seth Meyers. He is also tied with Darrell Hammond for the longest-tenured cast member in the show's history.
    I appreciate people who play big parts but are also team players, willing to portray the background characters.
    Well, I won't back down/No I won't back down/You can stand me up at the gates of hell/But I won't back down
    No I'll stand my ground//And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down/Gonna stand my ground/Well I know what's right/I got just one life/In a world that keeps on pushin' me around/But I'll stand my ground/And I won't back down-Tom Petty

    Melissa McCarthy won an Emmy at the Creative Arts Emmys this weekend! I hope, if she was there to make the speech, she thanked Sean Spicer

    I think that i"m even more excited about Dave winning than Melissa. Melissa did great work, especially as Spicer. But Dave hosted the Saturday after the election. His monologue in that show was outstanding, and made people laugh at the situation rather than dividing people and creating more animosity. To have done that - with one less day prepare the show really since writing night was election night and the next day they realized they needed some new material that continued to develop all week, was an accomplishment. It was a stroke of genius to book someone of his skill level to host in that particular week.
