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.
"I'm the same guy underneath whether I'm producing or writing or composing. Whatever I'm doing, it's still all music and it's still all me. I feel the same way with regards to styles of music."
The funny woman wields humor in such a way as to remove one gag (through her refusal of silence), even as she makes another -- a joke. Thus, she simultaneously resists shutting down and shutting up.
The first performer who I ever saw in concert was Steve Martin, and whether this man wants the credit or not, he changed my life forever.

As bittersweet as the undertones of the show were, it still played like your average installment of "Saturday Night Live." There wasn't an endless parade of Bill Hader and Fred Armisen's greatest hits. Instead, both men left as they arrived, standouts of the ensemble, without overshadowing the cast. A fitting sendoff.
Bill Hader is the perfect "SNL" cast member. And the fact that I've always known this, yet still feel like I have taken him for granted is a big part of why he is the perfect cast member. He really is the total package. He is Phil Hartman-level good.
Less than a year ago, Kristen Wiig was given an emotional and touching graduation style sendoff from "SNL" that very few cast members ever receive. So, that's why it was a little weird seeing her "back in school" so soon. Pulling the same old tricks.
This week's Zach Galifianakis-hosted "SNL" felt at times that the cast was just sitting around waiting for the reaction to final sketch of the night -- which turned out to be one of the most ambitious sketches in recent memory.
What an odd show this was. In that I can't remember the last time a host -- in this case, Vince Vaughn -- had that much energy during the monologue, yet the rest of the show felt so ... sluggish.
Stefon is three years old this month. Sure, he's a hypersexual three-year-old with unstoppable daddy issues who potentially disposes of exes by murdering them and taking them to the Carribean. But he is celebrating a birthday. We should celebrate.
All of the elements for a truly terrific "SNL" were there -- great host, spirited audience, refreshed cast -- but it wasn't a terrific "SNL." It was a good show, fueled mostly by the physical efforts of host Melissa McCarthy, but, overall, the material wasn't there.
NBC speeds up late-night transition: Jimmy Fallon immediately replaces Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show; Seth Meyers replaces Fallon; Leno replaces Barbara Walters on The View; Walters joins the cast of Duck Dynasty.
Neither terrible nor revelatory, Ramaa Mosley's The Brass Teapot is the kind of movie you might stumble across on cable and stick with, if only because, well, you've got nothing better to do.
