    I'm still confused - is My Pillow a good pillow or not?

    Don't we have a new president? You wouldn't know by watching SNL.

    A. It's been a whopping two weeks

    B. They had jokes in Weekend Update

    C. You gotta do something to get made fun of. It's not Biden's fault his predecessor provided enough material in a week to fill an entire season.

    Dan Levy was strong as expected. Solid episode.

    The Zillow thing was outstanding.

    The funniest thing during last night’s SNL was watching Phoebe Bridgers fail to smash a pretty durable guitar and a way-too-sturdy stage monitor.

    We have very different comedic senses. I thought that was the worst episode of the last several seasons. Even WU sucked, IMHO.

    They took off the Twins doing reaction videos, lol. On the one hand, if they're doing a bit about you on SNL, you've achieved cultural visibility. On the other, they made fun of them hardcore.

    I was waiting for "So, like, you guys never rode in a car with a radio?" "Not one that worked, yo."

    Eh, to each their own. I like Levy a lot. And maybe a short term comparison to last week, which was bad.

    I stand by the Zillow sketch.

    “I wonder where he learned that word?” was the funniest WU line
    in months.

    See, I think that was one of the stronger SNLs in recent years - the dunking on SB sponsors trying to appeal to "everyone", the Zillow ad, the SB Party "we're doing everything right, right?" thing, the Black History segment, the LGBT It Gets better thing, the Cancel Couple on WU had me rolling - like the guy in my avatar rolling. Universal Tram, the wedding thing and Football Hot Dam things were watchable. The only dead zone was the monologue. But I will say Dan Levy was so good - like fit right in like he was a regular good, Emma Stone, Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks good. Hell - for all the "why don't they criticize Biden" people out there, a good 60 percent of the sketches were targeted at white liberals.
    Phoebe Bridgers was interesting. She doesn't look like she sounds. Love the twitter beef with David Crosby.
