EPISODE REVIEWS


Drew Barrymore / Garbage
March 20, 1999


Overall, this was a mediocre show, with occasional flashes of excellence.
Highlights: Weekend Update, VH1, Oscar Pre-show.

 

E! Oscar Pre-Show
B+
Some funny things here, especially Cheri getting hit by Jada Pinkett's shoe.

 

Drew Barrymore Monologue
B
Well-written, but she really can't sing. Parnell was hysterical. Fallon's Sandler is always great. Cheri is HOT, which isn't easy next to Drew.

 

Celebrity Jeopardy
B
This was a little dull, but the Penis Mightier brought it around.

 

"How are you doing?" in Banana Republic
B
Great idea that went on too long.

 

VH1 Behind the Music: Captain and Tenille
A
I love these. They aren't huge laugh-getters, but I find them really funny.

 

The How Do You Say? Ah Yes, Show
B-
Some real good moments.

 

Fun With Real Audio: Oscar Highlights
C
Isn't Smigel leaving to do his own show on UPN? He's going out with a whimper. Is this a cartoon he found when cleaning out his desk?

 

Weekend Update
A+
King Colin continues his reign. Loved the Marlboro truck, Deepak Chopra, Party of Five, and the attack on the Lotto winner. Clinton was pretty good, and Kattan made me laugh in spite of myself. Again, Update was the best thing of the night.

 

Garbage
A+
One of my favorite bands. This was the night for HOT women.

 

Dog Show
D
Why? (Shannon and Drew making out: A+)

 

VH1 Behind the Music: Def Leopard
A
Great.

 

Terrance Maddox models for art class
C
I'm tired of this character and all the easy penis humor. The wink at the end is just stupid.

 

VH1 Behind the Music: Fred Schneider
A
Great
