My impression is that Che is very much of the opinion that his job is to perform comedy, on a stage, in front of a live audience. And while there is a value to the viewers having these shows, he does not need to be doing this.

I’m glad they made sure to have Sudeikis and Armisen in What Up With That. It wouldn’t have been the same. What’s it been... a decade since they did that?

I never really got anything out of "What's Up with That?" until I heard Jason Sudeikis talk about how fun it was to make on an episode of "You Made It Weird" with Pete Holmes. Now, our family loves them and we'll try it on each other.

I always thought that the point of "What's Up With That" is that it's just a bunch of fast-hitting silliness, where they don't drag anything on too long. Almost a parody of SNL itself, when they tend to drag out unfunny stuff for too long and drive it into the ground.

And Jason Sudeikis dancing in the track suit is fucking hilarious. Gotta give him props for letting himself look so stupid.

Kate McKinnon was great in the Cat Adoption short... "he's wearing a mask not because he's sick but because he has fucked up teeth"... I cracked up at that.

Melissa Villasenor - wherever she is living is made of stucco so probably LA
Chloe Fineman - tropical vegetation in yard of where she is, probably LA

Michael Che- I assume he lives in city, he seems like a die hard New Yorker
Pete Davidson- Well known that he still lives in Staten Island with his mother

the rest of the cast hasn't revealed enough in their skits to tell...not really that big a deal...just pointing it out
I don't blame them for living elsewhere, NYC is expensive as hell
Isn't NYC kinda the LAST place you wanted to be for the last two months or so?

That's what I was thinking. Even if you lived in New York, if you had enough money to afford another home I'd think you'd go anywhere else unless you were trying to help the neighborhood or something.

Also, props for the PornHub commercial, done with the same gravitas as all the other phony-baloney "In these difficult times...." ads we're inundated with now.

Damn, I missed that one completely. It's harder than ever when DVRing to tell when when the show ends and the commercials begin. Fortunately YouTube had it.

I liked a lot of this show. It felt like everyone had a chance to try out weird silly things, maybe being a little looser without the pressure of a live audience. So true about Dasani water ... supermarkets I've been in just have mountains of the stuff. I liked the skit of the clueless dad whose daughter gets revenge by messing with the video filters. And the cat skit was hilarious ... something tells me multiple roles were played by the same cat

Weekend Update is the only thing that doesn't really work in this format. I guess silence is better than the live-streamed laughs they tried last time ... but not by much.

We're getting a repeat of the Daniel Craig w/ The Weeknd tonight (5/2)... so I'm guessing we'll get a Live at Home episode next week.

It was a cut for time sketch that they then post later on YouTube. They do that pretty much every episode.

The Season finale or final At Home edition is this Sat May 9.

Kind of early since the finale is usually the third or fourth week of May.

I hope they can maybe add the episodes they missed to the season total for next season.
