One of the reasons I love being able to contribute to the cultural conversation is having the ability to tell the story and journey of the overlooked or undiscovered artist.
Soooo, yes, that wasn't the smoothest of transitions. Look, it's well documented that this is a transition year for "SNL." The show has six new cast members ... My point is ... give them a break.
From John Belushi's trademark belligerence in "Samurai Delicatessen" to Alec Baldwin's innuendo-laden "Schweddy Balls.
Thank you, thank you, anonymous benefactor (Gary? Was that you?). How privileged we are to be privy to the uncensored inner thoughts of all these talented actors. We just had to share them with the world.
In 2002, "Late Show with David Letterman" won the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Variety Series. It was a particularly deserved win: The Primetime Emmy award honors television programming that aired the prior June through May, which would include Letterman's touching and poignant return after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

The third largest city in America has more than 26 miles of free, public beaches (more, in fact, than Bermuda), all with gorgeous views of Chicago's stellar skyline.
We've seen Lorne Michaels pull off miracles to save the show in the past. No miracles will be needed this season. "SNL" is in good shape -- great shape, even. This might be the best core group of young talent the show has had, all at once in, well, 18 years.
During his final show, Jason Sudeikis starred in zero sketches then gave us two months of silence. This, apparently, is the way he wanted it -- and as we saw during his tenure on "SNL," Sudeikis had the tendency to do what he wanted.
When we search out and discover the authentic meaning of our existence and our experiences, we learn that life doesn't just happen to us. We happen to life; and we make it meaningful.
