- Hard to believe The Office is going into Season Five already. Didn't Ross and Rachel get together and break up about nine times by this point on Friends?
- Will Kath & Kim end up being the next Office, or the next Coupling? Selma Blair & Wayne Jarvis (he should legally get his name changed, OchoCinco style) are keeping me interested, but cautiously interested.
- God Help Me, I'm way way way excited about this Christian Slater project that will undoubtably be canceled within two months.
I'd be much more excited about this Weekend Update thing if Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers weren't the worst anchors SNL ever had. Do you think maybe Tina Fey could do it instead to keep her presence on the network until 30 Rock comes back? Please? (I mean, the regular SNL is crazy if they don't get her to cameo until the election as Sarah Palin anyway.)

Baldwin was right about Scrubs, but Earl is awesome. And I'm sure all my friends at Television Without Pity would agree with me.

The new woman in the cast, Casey Wilson, is pretty much a dead ringer for Palin except lacking glasses. If she can do a bitchy voice, she's a lock. Also, Amy Poehler isn't on SNL anymore.
“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras
I'm not sure. She previously said she was staying through the election -- although that was when she thought she might have reason to play Hillary Clinton. Every preview I've read of this Thursday Night Live has the hosts as her and Myers though. (Not to mention the fact that he's the real problem.)
It was clunky, but I was intrigued enough to give it a few more episodes. The previews made it look like it gets better. Casting the awesome Clancy Brown and then killing him in five minutes seems like a tremendous waste.
