Jeremy Bronson (who I believe is the head monologue writer), Diallo Riddle and Bashir Sallahudin all seem to be parting ways with the show. I'm gonna miss Bashir especially!
Dear God NO!!!! I'm sure the other two are extremely talented, but not my Bashir!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No more hoagie-eating housewife, no more Milky J, no more everything.great.he.does (especially the singing). I hate this news!
And now I'm very curious about what is happening behind the scenes, because why would so many writers be leaving? (these aren't the first, right?) I feel like a lot of late-night writers are incredibly loyal and like to stay put, and who wants to be looking for work right now? So, either they're getting seriously good offers elsewhere to maybe do their own things, or something about how LNwJF is being run is getting a lot less fun. And that makes me think of the notoriously douche-ridden NBC execs or Lorne Micheals' mysterious ways.
I don't care for this at all... (but thanks for the news violetion
As far as last night's show: Hurrah for the return of Downton Sixbey, though it contained both Carson Daly and Whoopi "It wasn't 'rape' rape" Goldberg. And, I'm torn in my love for the ugly daughter and my hatred for the homely lothario Fred Armisen. He screwed over Elizabeth Moss, and I doubt she'll ever be back on LN, which sucks. As usual, Miles got some great dialogue, and there aren't enough The View/tortured animal jokes in the world, so I could watch his character all day. I love the addition of ?uestlove and, actually, Carson as the English-patient-type character was pretty hilarious. I love the terrible hair piece the potential "new jokeman" wears and his super-dramatic pauses and - I guess I really have to watch Downton Abbey - but I can't hear enough of Jimmy's "I hope I die heeeyyyyaaaa"(s).
I didn't get much from Will Smith's interview or performance though and I am still confused by the musical guest's album only being available at Cracker Barrel...?!?! Am I missing something?
eta: trying to figure out phonetics.
