I'm of the exact opposite opinion. I preferred this than her coming out singing a song on a piano or something.

Oh that would have been awful as well. I was thinking how they had Rodney do standup from heaven after he died, or just like say “hey we loved rbg and and she thought this sketch was funny” and replayed it or something.

E: vvv yeah I remember it with horror.

I have neglected to come up with a clever title

and he's gone https://www.vulture.com/2020/10/snl...d-canceled.html

When was the last time there was a late musical guest substitution? Could they even do one with these protocols? They probably can't have Alec Baldwin fill in for the musical guest. Think they'll just stitch in a Zoom call with Coldplay or whatever?

Not necessarily a late substitution, but when Donald Trump’s 2004 show was announced on-air (I think three weeks in advance?) there was no musical guest yet booked. Toots and the Maytals ended up playing, and that felt like a real late booking.

Also: SNL is paying audience members

This is to get around New York’s rules, which state that no live audiences are permitted except crew.

Pretty lovely move by the show.

Edit: How could I forget, Sinead O’Conner famously refused to appear with host Andrew Dice Clay, which gave the world its first (and last) taste of Spanic Boys, thanks to the SNL Band’s G. E. Smith, who got them the last-minute gig. It was a double booking, and Julee Cruise was the other act, performing “Falling,” the theme song from Twin Peaks.

Edit 2: As such, I propose that the SNL Band gets to play two full songs on-air this week.

Just use a laugh track, it wouldn’t make the shows any more lifeless than they are already.

no they went half-way with that and then went into a totally unfunny and only vaguely explicable series of The Fly jokes complete with Jim Carrey doing a terrible Jeff Goldblum impression and Kenan showing up as Herman Cain

and then Jim Carrey showed up and said "well poo poo if we're out here making people rethink our comedic talent I want in on that"
