Kenan has a family sitcom debuting side by side with Young Rock. I’m guessing it is in part to promote that.I just read that Kenan Thompson is finally hosting the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards this spring. As a '90s kid, I'm glad he finally gets his due but do kids these days even care about SNL? Will the inevitable Good Burger reunion just go straight over their head?
Yeah but everyone HATED that. HATED IT. It was so bad that they did another I Love The '00s in like 2014/15 where they ignored the fact that they already did one.VH1 was airing "I Love the 2000s" in like 2008. It's happening, brah.
Paris Hilton got some of that. Tina Fey gave a pretty scathing interview on Stern (I think) detailing how much of a nightmare it was to work with Hilton.Drake was shockingly really good the 1 or 2 times he has hosted (“what do you mean shockingly!?”-TSM’s Degrassi fan community) but besides him and Bruno, rest have ranged from unnecessary at best to downright horrible at worst.
I don’t think any host besides Steven Seagal has gotten more “Man, fuck that piece of garbage!” energy From the cast that they worked with than Justin Bieber. And weird thing is Lorne has invited him back a few times as musical guest since.
I remember Tina mentioning Hilton really seemed to hate Jessica Simpson for some reason, and wanted to do a really mean spirited sketch about her.Paris Hilton got some of that. Tina Fey gave a pretty scathing interview on Stern (I think) detailing how much of a nightmare it was to work with Hilton.
Jessica Simpson played Paris Hilton in a sketch where her and Nick Lachey co-hosted in 2003.I remember Tina mentioning Hilton really seemed to hate Jessica Simpson for some reason, and wanted to do a really mean spirited sketch about her.
Yeah that post Will Ferrell era after he left up until around 2006 when the next group (Samberg, Wiig, Hader, Sudiekiis,) started breaking out pretty much killed my love for SNL for a few years. A good chunk of that 2002-2005 or so cast had a bunch of people that usually annoyed me on SNL or started having their shtick get a little old. There were still some cast members doing good work like Will Forte and Amy Poehler, but the shakeup in the mid 00's was much needed.Jessica Simpson played Paris Hilton in a sketch where her and Nick Lachey co-hosted in 2003.
I was JUST talking yesterday to my friend about when SNL reruns moved to E! in the early-mid '00s and suddenly seemed to be targeting towards that demographic HARD with their host selection. Aforementioned Newlyweds and Paris Hilton episodes, Olsen Twins hosting, Trump hosting 1st time, girls in the audience screaming at Jimmy Fallon like he was in NSYNC.
BLERG! My absolute least favorite time to be an SNL fan and still I preferred it over MadTV (basis of this conversation was my unending visceral hatred of MadTV and my friend trying to argue that MadTV was fine).
