John Goodman / Paula Cole
February 7, 1998
Opening: Linda Tripp Confronts Monica Lewinsky over dinner.
Goodman was lousy. It basically ruined some good writing.
Monologue: John Goodman and Dan Akroid.
It was good to see the Blues Brothers back but again Goodman wasn't great.
Sketch: Morning Latte
I loved this on Farley's show and it was great again. Ferrell and Oteri are great together. They truly are a dynamic duo. HILARIOUS!!
Sketch: Bill Clinton disagrees with several of the Ten Commandments
Not a bad sketch, but a little lengthy and repetitous. Mediocre Sketch.
Sketch: CBS world of sports: eye on the olympics
Pointless. Even Ferrell coudn't save this sketch. Really dumb
Sketch: Emeril on the food network
Funny to see him discussing politics on a Food Show. I liked it. Even, for a change, a good impression by Goodman. Average.
Weekend Update: with Colin Quinn
Colin Quinn still does not look good as an update anchor. Oh, i almost forgot Ferrell was absolutely Fabulous as Graves. The best commentator besides Harey Carey. Ferrell saves yet another sketch.
Grade:F for Colin, A+ for Ferrell
Sketch: Judge Judy
Oteri was not as funny as in the first 'Judy, but another average sketch. It was great to see the toy guy back. Akroid was great!
Sketch: Martha Stewart living promo
Although I like Gasteyer's impression, as always, this was the worst of the night.
Sketch: Sabado Chistoso
See Emirel on the food network and just substitute the Spanish channel.
Sketch: When the cobra's attack
ok for at the end of the show. Ferrell was funny when he kept repeating: 'This is Your Captain Speaking'. Tim Meadows was great, as well.
Sketch:Storytellers (with Neil Diamond)
Im not a big Goodman fan, actually i dont care for him at all. A terribly average show. Akroid was fairly amusing. Not the best of the season but not the worst.
