Ripa / Outkast
November 1, 2003
Let us begin.
01 A Message From President Bush
Good: bigger envelopes, only accurate thing of the imression
was his the use of arms.
Bad: writing, (these political openings have drastically
dropped in quality) Darrell's impression
Misc: Time to start going after the 10 Democrats going
after Bush's job.
02 Questions From Writers, er Audience.
Good: Black guy's questions, Jim Downey, Steve Higgins appearences,
Ruth confusing her for Kathie Lee and telling her she sucks,
so very funny, lie about watching her sitcom
Bad: First audience member encouter
Misc: Paula Pell once again this season is on air
03 How Kelly Ripa Does It
Good: Hilarious, nice idea,
04 Regis and Kelly
Good: another great RK sketch, Kattan's funny suprise cameo,
Jolie impression, Beyond Borders clip, cat fight
Misc: They should've gotten the real Gelman. First talk show
sketch of the night.
05 Access Hollywood
Good: Haratio's entrance, concept, Renee impression, couch
Bad: Fallon's Pat O'Brien is just not up to par, Haratio
seemed to almost lose it.
Misc: What was up with the ending, technical problems?
06 Weekend Update
Good: Great jokes that made me think this was WU circa 2000.
Finally a very good reason to visit FallonFey.com - Tina's Arnold
impression. Tina finally regains the Best Anchor of the Night
Title. Drunk Girl and her M&M's.
Bad: Jimmy's Rod Roddy stuff. The '66' thing was clever
but the whole thing was disgusting. Maybe if OJ Simpson died
but what Rod Roddy do to deserve that? Good to hear
someone 'boo' him. Plus Tina questioned why he did that, so why
do it? Some guy named Haratio Sanz flushed whatever talent he
had (he was great) down the toilet and attempted to to entertain
us. He did entertain Jimmy Fallon.
Misc: Why does Haratio always sit next to Jimmy? I would
be interested to see how things went if he was talking to Tina.
Rod Roddy appeared in late July on the Kilby Late Late Show and
made a wish come true for Neil Patrick Harris aka Doogie Howser
by telling him to come on down.
07 Center For Cow Fart Study
Bad: Predictable, fart jokes can only go so far.
Misc: I'm sure all Forte fans were anticipating to see
what he would cook up this week.
08 Lelani Burke Show
Good: Her jingle, Rachel's character
Bad: her conversations and fixiation on Phil Stiles weren't
09 Spy Glass
Good: Seth and Amy did well, Jimmy as Pat O'Brien againn.
seeing how these people are the bastard children of his. Suggestion
that Spice Girl news segments be cut down
Bad: Spice Girl news, trash lady
Misc: If you do get BBC America don't watch this show
but watch The Office. Way funnier than this or any network American
sitcom on today.
10 Douchebag Dog
Good: Parnell finally makes onscreen appearence, disses a
dog, Korean BBQ
Bad: maybe a tad too long
Misc: Thanks to Outkast, Chris Kattan and Tina loves her
In summary and in conclusion... This episode limped
towards midnight. Kelly Ripa had the best question mono in ages,
and then starred in the funniest commerical of the year and a
better than last time Regis/Kelly sketch. ... Weekend Update
woke up and finally did great as the highlight of the show. Haratio
Sanz what can I say. You had it and then the last two seasons
has been a disapointment. ... Parnell got the screwgy and is
no longer Bush, but that could change next week who knows.
Rachel did well tonight along with Amy. Maya even with one appearence
didn't appeal to me. Forte had his first dud. ... Andy Roddick
will serve (very lame huh) as host next week and barring
a barage of former castmember cameos I don't see an improvement.
Alec Baldwin will also host the week after, so their is some
light at the end of the gloomy tunnel. The writers like to pick
on Craig Kilborn. ... Best of Tracy Morgan was suprisingly good,
but ta! ppered off at the end.

Repeat That For Me, Tina Fey: The Lakers fined Kobe Bryant
this week after he insulted teammate Shaquille O,Neal, calling
him childlike, unprofessional, selfish, fat, and jealous.
Bryant then added Shaq couldn,t rape his way out of a wet paper

Orlando Bloom ???
Finally, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a man allowed his 8-year-old
daughter to take the wheel of his car, and an accident ensued
that damaged seven other cars and injured six people. Which once
again proves my theory: Women can't drive!
