Because what else is there to talk about on a Friday when there’s no TV on and summer series haven’t kicked up yet?
As a daydreaming writer, one show I’d like to work on for…a month… is SNL. Only a month because I’m sure that’s how long it would take to drain me of all my funny. The host can really make or break a skit. I hate those who blatantly read off the cue cards, but music guests who make fun of themselves are bonus points.
Should be a host every year:
- Alec Baldwin
- Drew Barrymore
- Justin Timberlake
These three slay me every time. Maybe because they can act and aren’t afraid to make a fool of themselves. Omeletville makes me laugh til I cry every single time. Then this is my dream list. My gauge for who would make a good host is not by their resume, but who is naturally funny. Those who are spontaneous and creative when not acting, like when they are being interviewed. I know probably half of these people will never get the call since they won’t have major movies opening anytime soon and we know what a cross promotional junkie NBC is.
- John Krasinski
- Kristen Bell
- James McAvoy
- Peyton Manning- best sports guest ever.
- Kyle Chandler
- Zachary Levi
- Kristin Chenoweth
- Neil Patrick Harris
- Beckie Newton & Michael Urie (together)
- Edward James Olmos- even though he has a reputation of being very serious, I think that would make him funnier.
Okay who did I miss? I’m just tired of stuffy movie actors who read off the cue cards who know they are going to get shown up by Kristen Wiig anyways.
