Claire Danes / Mariah Carey
November 15, 1997
[OPENING] Hillary Clinton speaks to America for one minute
Pretty funny skit. I liked it when Hillary brought the documents out of her pocket and started threatening Bill.
[MONOLOGUE] Claire Danes
I thought this was a good monologue ... especially since I live right near Yale. They should have used the cast member as the people who asked questions.
[COMMERCIAL] The Weston Collection's I'm #1 Hat
Pretty dumb, but the commercials usually are. I like skits much better.
[SKETCH] Barry Scheck's apartment
By far, the best skit of the night. I thought it was hilarious. It was great to see O.J. again. Any skit with Norm is great.
[SKETCH] The View
Not a very funny skit. It didn't have much of a plot, though. Ana Gasteyer was funny and so was Claire Danes.
[SKETCH] Bobbi & Marty Culp perform at Colbert College
It started out funny and the song was alright, but it didn't really go anywhere. Claire Danes was funny yelling at her parents
[TV FUNHOUSE] The Ambiguously Gay Duo
Dumb. But I don't really like any "TV Funhouse." This skit is getting old.
[SKETCH] Hallmark's Peter Pan
I liked this skit a lot. They should do more fairy tales. This was hilarious. Tinkerbell was awesome.
[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Norm MacDonald
Norm is always funny but I thought that Joe Blow was just dumb. But that isn't Norm's fault
[MUSICAL GUEST] Mariah Carey
Always the worst part of the show and I don't particularly like Mariah Carey
[SKETCH] Mr. Peepers goes home
Funny skit, but none of the other cast members were even close as good as Chris Kattan.
[SKETCH] CEO Dreamboats Magazine
Was this a commercial or a skit? It was kind of between both. But it was pretty dumb
[SKETCH] The Louvre
Not too bad, but had no plot. I like the way they couldn't pronounce any of the French words.
[THE LOST DEEP THOUGHTS] by Jack Handey
I don't even remember what it was. But it is never that funny.
Not a very good show. I don't mean to be sexist but there were way to many skits with all of the women cast members. Where were Tim Meadows and others? They were hardly in it.
