Dane had a half hour special on one of their Stand-Up series about a year ago or so.

Closer to four years actually, you were watching a re-run :D

Also I love that Zach Gilafin... guy, and not just because he's the spitting image of my friend Sam.

I mentioned this a few weeks ago when there was a thread about Dane Cook in the Cantina. It's insane how quickly he's gotten so popular. We had the guy at my university around two years ago to do some stand up. He went with some friends and I and got some drinks afterwards, but of course this is before he became an uber-celebrity. He had a crowd of around 150 to 200 that night, I think. He's coming again after Christmas and we are probably going to have to reserve seats and call the fire marshall.

I think he's pretty good. Not the best I've heard, but he ranks high up there anyways. He's a totally cool guy, but like I said, I met him before he got so darn popular. I hope he hasn't let it get to his head, I'm looking forward to seeing him again.

Reminder for tonight's Jaime Pressley ep, along with musical guest Corinne Bailey Rae. If nothing else, this episode should answer the burning question, "What's a Corinne Bailey Rae?"

Seriously, never heard of her, don't feel like Googling. Sounds like a Southern Gospel act.

Official Site, FLASH heavy... slow modems bewary.

The Official MySpace?? Maybe I dunno.

From what I gather the band is called Corinne Bailey Rae, but that is the lead singer's name too. From the MySpace page it seems that she is black, slender... basically Erykah Badu-ish without the headdress in appearance. Her official site plays music after it loads and the style seems jazzy, soft and a little bit whiney.

I fell asleep waiting for the show to start... when I woke up I was bleh so I played a video game. Although next week should have my attention considering the lovely, yummable Kate Hudson is hosting. Pretty sure Radiohead is the musicial guest, although I could be wrong.

Erm, Torch? Buddy? The Kate Hudson/Radiohead episode was six years ago.

This Saturday they're rerunning the season premiere with Dane Cook. Yes, already. No, I don't know why.

The next new episode will be 10/21 with host John C. Reilly; musical guest, My Chemical Romance.

That's okay, so was the show.

The "NASCARettes" skit was hilarious, and the "New York City Stories" were more charming than funny, which I was willing to accept. The rest was a writeoff, IMHO. Exhibit A: the opening sketch, what amounted to a single "Weekend Update" one-liner dragged out to five minutes, as if the writers went around the room brainstorming Mark Foley jokes, then decided to conflate every single suggestion, ranging from lamer-than-lame to almost-funny, into a single segment. They'd've gotten better results rerunning an old Matt Foley sketch instead.

Six years ago huh?! I wondered why Kate Hudson was going to be on. Anyway I got the listing from my local TV Guide. Although my local has been wrong before.

I'm thinking of looking for "NASCARettes" on YouTube though. Is it worth the effort or should I just catch it in a rerun?

I dunno if I'd recommend putting effort into tracking it down -- it's no more than a three-minute gag. The premise is simply, "What if NASCAR had cheerleaders?"...

Yeah, last week's show sucked. But in many cases, you can chalk up the quality of the show to the quality of the host. The host has more influence in the direction of that weeks show than most realize. In many cases, hosts have the final say on what skits will get the go ahead.

That said, the John C. Reilly show should be pretty darn good. Here's hoping they bring in Will Ferrel in at least a cameo since they costarred over the summer.

Okay, I checked the official site. The next host/new show is on October 21st. The host and muscial guest are planned to be John C. Reilly and My Chemical Romance. As for what is on this weekend... my local still lists the Kate Hudson rerun. Although our local affiliates might be filling the slot themselves, so if Kate isn't aired in your town then you should yell at them.

I'm glad that you're not dead yet, MG.

As for the "mystery" as to what episode was going to air... Dane Cook was rerun. Six was right and my local TV guide lied to me. This is the last time I let it do this to me. It is always breaking my heart. Screw you, Local Guide! I will not let you play with my emotions again.

Damn, I've missed Cook on SNL twice now :P

He is probably my favorite current comedian. Absolutely genius.
I LOL everytime I listen/watch his stuff.

My wife said bleh to John C. Reily and so my plans to force myself to sit on the couch and enjoy SNL tonight have been "upgraded". Just two or so years ago that would have been code for sex but now it just means I'm going to get a nice, long night of sleep. One kid makes you a parent, two kids make you old.
