EPISODE REVIEWS


Alec Baldwin / Luciano Pavarotti
December 12, 1998


[OPENING] The President Apologizes To America:

This was not all that bad. I Hope Clinton isn't thrown out of office for Darrell's sake. I like the line, " I have the game Sorry in my office, I play it all the time" and " A Poet once wrote, Im Sorry, That poet was me" Good stuff.

 

[MONOLOGUE] Alec Baldwin:

Not all that bad, although I liked Alec's Monologue from the last time he hosted alittle better.

 

[COMMERCIAL] NBA On NBC:

Not too bad. Could have been shorter.

 

[SKETCH] Mourning Latte:

In my opinion the only Mourning Latte that was funny was the first one with Farley.

 

[SKETCH] Clown Katie visits Cassidy:

Ehh...

 

[TV FUNHOUSE] Harlem Globetrotters:

Hey, This wasn't that bad, I like the "Somebody can't spell" line.

 

[COMMERCIAL] Save on Long Distance Calls:

I wish they wouldn't keep repeating themselves.

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Luciano Pavarotti with Vanessa Williams:

Good voice, but unfortunately for me, I dont speak or understand Latin. Too Bad, Good thing Conan O'Brien wasn't the host tonight, he makes ALOT of jokes about Pavarotti.

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn:

Hey Craig Kilborn is leaving The Daily Show, maybe he could join the cast and do the Update for Colin! and as for Tim, Nice hat. Did he have to sing though?

 

[SKETCH] The Delicious Dish:

Hmm.. Balls, isn't that alittle childish for a show like this? They should have played it earlier when the kids are awake.

 

[SKETCH] Impeachment Hearings:

Great Impressions from everyone here, but Will Ferrell sounds nothing like Henry Hyde. Darrell Hammond is using Clinton as much as possible, but he gets thrown out.

 

[COMMERCIAL] Chanukah Hymns:

Will Ferrell was funny, as for everyone else, Ehh...

 

[SKETCH] Bill Brasky Guys:

I always loved these characters. Was better with Mark McKinney and David Koechner though. What happened to Tim Meadows character that "knows Bill Brasky." ?

 

Next Week: Bill Paxton, hmm.. Whats with Costars lately huh?

Thank you, Come again !
