I really donít ever think it will be canceled either, not that itís so good or anything, but it will always be relevant.

other than the cold open and weekend update, i mostly FF through it nowadays.

Conan isn't getting that job. He has that contract with HBO Max. I am pretty sure he is done with the late night grind. And that is absolutely not the demographic NBC would be shooting for.

Was he the Ghislaine Maxwell to Sanz's Jeffrey Epstein?

Her accusation against Fallon is that she was served and drank beer in Fallon's presence at an SNL after party when Fallon was aware she was underage.

No accusation that Fallon was involved in her being served beer, or that he was directly aware of her drinking beer. Accusation states that she consumed beer, which she ordered, in the presence of unnamed NBC/SNL employees. She does name Fallon as a person she shared food with at that party.

So, I think Fallon's defense will be (if he cops to any recollection of that night at all) that he did not see her drinking beer, and that even if he did, he's a comedian, not a bouncer.

IDK how it can survive once it is established that behind the scenes SNL was all about sex trafficking underage girls.

That seems a bit of a stretch. One accusation and now the entire SNL staff is involved in a clandestine sex trafficking operation? Did they do it out of a Bronx pizzeria?

This reads like those people who think Trump will become the President if Biden is impeached. Thatís not how any of this works.

Iím pretty sure the NY District Attorneyís office isnít going to pursue charges for Fallon from and incident where he was in the presence of an underage girl who drank a beer 20 years ago.

I think this is shakedown or a money grab and throw this lawsuit in the garbage.

I agree, but as this thread already demonstrates, Fallon will likely be required to defend himself in the court of public opinion.

If Fallon does end up damaged by this, it won't be Conan who replaces him. That ship has sailed.

I was just being snarky about Conan coming back to The Tonight Show.

I'm pretty much over Conan, at any rate. What little I saw of his show on TNT or TBS or wherever it was was really meh. His best stuff was when he was a dead man walking in Leno's shadow on The Tonight Show, and didn't give a fuck. Like when he was spraying caviar all over a Picasso painting.

Not related but NBC removed a video of Fallon fawning over Andrew Cuomo in a interview last May but you can't blame him since this was before the sex scandal.

Oh. I thought the complaint might have been that Sanz was laughing at her, which caused Fallon to laugh too. Man, I really hope that's not in bad taste but I already know it is.

Remember, this is the same breeding ground that gave the world that monster, Al Franken.

Re: SNL general discussion thread

The new season won't start in Sept


There is a rumor Kim Kardashian might be the first host

I hope not.


Saturday Night Live fans have been waiting for season 47 to premiere to once again have our fun Saturday nights back! Unfortunately, Saturday Night Live season 47 is not coming to NBC in September 2021.

The sketch comedy series has dropped a new season almost always on the month of September, but this time they’re waiting until October 2021.

Is she still a thing? I never paid attention to celebs, but I couldn't escape her (and her family) being brought up all the time before.
But I don't think I've heard anything about her in a few years now. What's she going to promote - her new ass implants?

Ugh, why? Is that no talent, plastic idiot promoting a new sex tape or something? Why the fuck is she still even a thing at this point?

I think she would be huge for ratings. I donít care for her but sheís still a big deal.

and oddly, sometimes itís the hosts we think will be shit that end up giving us the better shows.

I just wish they would start the season earlier.

It could be worse. They could have Kourtney instead.

Re: SNL general discussion thread

I am way more interested in Cast then Guest. When are we going to find out who is coming back? And is the delayed start in order to accommodate some of them?

According to Directv Oct 2 is the premiere

I prefer a movie star as a guest over a Kardashian any day.

She may bring in ratings but her appearance would be remembered for all of the wrong reasons. I remember back when Nancy Kerrigan hosted and it drew huge ratings, but it was very much an illustration of all that was wrong with the show at the time. I honestly only see people tuning in to see what a train wreck she makes of the show. Also, I don't care what she says, there is NO WAY that thing she has is real.

Re: SNL general discussion thread

I can understand the show having her host in the tradition of inviting "hot" pop culture figures, and I know KK is still a subject of interest for much of the American public, but it seems to me, she at least five years past that window when she was really an object of widespread fascination.
