Eric McCormack / Jay-Z
November 2, 2002

By Sinie Conley

Pre-show thoughts: I haven*t seen Will and Grace since like, the second episode, so I*m not sure how this will turn out. Hopefully it*ll be like the last live episode. We had a bunch of rain today, so my TV is messed up. I can barely see the picture. The top half of the screen is on bottom, the bottom half is on top, and it*s snowy. Lovely.

Cold Open: Guilani Does Commercials

I didn*t think this was really all that funny. Maybe it*s just me, but I dunno. They could have found a better opening. Oh well.

Grade: B
Best Line: "It*s politics. You don*t want to know."

Monologue: Eric McCormack

This was ok. I liked the fact that he kept saying he*s not gay. Chris Kattan is not gay. I know he*s not. He can*t be. He*s too manly to be gay. haha Oh well. If he is, he is. If he*s not, he*s not. He*s still hot either way. Way to go, Kattan.

Grade: B+
Best Line: "We*re not gay, either."

This was ok...I love the one-legged girl. She*s hilarious. I finally laughed tonight. haha Maya does a good job playing a ditz. She*s not, though, but she can pull it off. Great job.

Weekend Update:

That was great. Horatio is awesome. I love his Gene Shalit impression. Is there anyone he can*t do? I haven*t seen Jackass, but one of my teachers said it was great. She*s cool. She*s not really my teacher, but she sits in the room while we watch the teacher on TV. It*s a fibernet class. Weird. Oh well. I like Mrs. Streeter better than Mrs. Cannon.

Why is Tracy speaking so properly? I like him like that. LOL I love Maya. She*s so pretty, and she*s so good. I love the way she talks to Tracy. haha They would look really cute in real life, if he wasn*t married. He*s got kids. I bet he*s a great dad. He looks like he*d be good with kids.

Post-show thoughts: Not quite as good as I*d hoped. Maybe next week will be better. I*m ready for the Al Gore episode. Darrell should have some fun with that. I can*t believe Tracy was only in one sketch tonight. He*s usually in alot. Maybe he*s doing something else on the side and needed the extra time? Hmm. Oh well. Better luck next week, Tracy.
