Sorry to post this, like, two weeks after the issue came out, but I just read the interview with Chevy Chase in New York Magazine, and...man, that dude is a dick. Forgets the interviewer's name; is pointedly apathetic about the strike and the current season of SNL; won't watch the Brothers & Sisters episodes he filmed except "to see what they cut"; talks about how the applause he got for his appearance on "Weekend Update" "took attention away from Seth and Amy," so he's not going to do the show again for a while; complains about how he took time off to raise his kids, and now it's hard to get work, like every actress with children, or other actor over 60, doesn't face the same issues, even if they're extremely talented, which, I love European Vacation but a thespian Chase ain't; and bags on the women on The View: "It's not that difficult to speak like a human being without a writer. Aren't these women reasonably intelligent?"
Remind me...how'd your talk show do, Chevy? Oh, that's right -- it bombed, because even with a writer, you were visibly uncomfortable and unable to connect with your guests. It was so bad, in fact, that people still talk about how bad it was, and it was on for maybe 5 episodes. Like 15 years ago. So, you kind of don't get to talk shit about The View when your own attempt at that gig was a suckball.
People in the TWoP bullpen are talking today about how bad your B&S appearance was, and how the editing seemed weird...almost like you didn't give them enough usable takes. So if you're wondering "what they cut," I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it's "most of what you filmed," because apparently you think you're above making an effort. The entire character seemed phoned in and flat, and whatever you had done to your face, I hope you kept the receipt.
It doesn't seem that arrogant and unprofessional, written out this way, but go read the interview; he's so fucking full of himself that he's seriously this close to popping. I ripped him a new one in the TWoP book, and I've wondered from time to time if I was too harsh, but...nope. The guy's an ass and a half. I mean, don't put me in the position of defending The View, a show I think is asinine.
For a show always in danger of cancellation from low ratings, Community sure does make a lot of headlines.
'Tis the season for meeting TV dads, apparently.
It was yet another nostalgic outing for Saturday Night Live this weekend, as Justin Timberlake gained membership into the "Five Timers Club" for quintuple hosting gigs and the writers celebrated by raiding the show's back catalogue for (vaguely) fresh material. Some of these reunions with old friends were welcome, while others were... well, really kind of cringe-inducing. Here were the best and worst callbacks from an overall uneven episode.
The set of Community is getting pretty tense for a sitcom that has a monkey named after a character's breasts.
You mean we're stuck with this twerp for another season?
